The Autobus Cafe is a new restaurant in OUE Downtown Gallery that also sells high-end bicycles and associated peripherals. The ground floor cafe is located at the junction of Shenton Way and Maxwell Road. There are attractive bicycle racks outside. Cyclists can park and eat very conveniently at The Autobus cafe. We were there for brunch on the weekend and quite a few tables around us were occupied by folks suited up with flashy and very tight lycra cycling gear.
The Providore Downtown just opened on Shenton Way. It is a mega f & b enterprise in OUE Gallery, which is the retail podium of the development known as OUE Downtown. For those of us who do not frequent this part of Singapore, we may be more familiar with the previous development that stood on this place – the DBS Building. The new development looks quite different. Sitting on top of the retail podium are two office tower blocks, now known as OUE Downtown 1 and OUE Downtown 2.
There is no lack of malls in Singapore but another new one is added right in the Central Business District. Downtown Gallery in OUE Downtown (where DBS Building was) offers 160,000 sq ft of retail and F&B space spread over six levels. A new restaurant in Downtown Gallery is VENUE by Sebastian, a casual restaurant serving refined food in small plates for sharing.
