Established in 1896 as a recreation space and nestled in one of the most storied parts of the iconic Raffles Hotel Singapore, the evolved Bar & Billiard Room (BBR) of today continues to shine as a social space offering an authentic and tantalising taste of Italy while showcasing the inspirations of our Chef de Cuisine Natalino Ambra. Born in Sicily famed for its seafood and raised in Tuscany in Florence, where its meats are world-renowned, Chef Natalino’s culinary philosophy is a well-balanced one that is produce-driven and designed to bring out the natural tastes and flavours of every ingredient.

Enjoy Chef Natalino’s approach to Italian cuisine at BBR amidst a storied building to discover tales of Singapore’s last tiger while immersing in the charming heritage of the century-old locale framed by tall signature Raffles Victorian columns, French doors and original floor tiles juxtaposed with contemporary design elements at three distinct areas – the inviting bar, vibrant dining space, and balmy al fresco terrace with a vantage view of the cast iron Palm Fountain.
