AZZUCAR! LATIN SOUL PARTY @ CLARKE QUAY

 Message from MIGUEL MORALES, Owner & Director

AZZUCAR! LATIN SOUL PARTY


Hola! Cuando sientas que estas lejos de casa, ven a AZZUCAR "La Casa de los latinos en Singapur. Ven a compartir entre hermanos".

AZZUCAR! LATIN SOUL PARTY, Singapore's hottest new Latin music club. Party with the very latest in Reggaeton, Bomba, Plena, Merengue and Salsa - LIVE!

Music is my life and the music from Cuba and Latin America is the heart and soul of all Latinos. I would like to share with you, in AZZUCAR! our Latin spirit for fun, dance and great music. Music is of-course the centre of AZZUCAR! Latin music! I have hand picked, from my home country, Cuba, six highly talented, charming and young Cuban musicians, and have brought them all the way to Singapore to party with you at AZZUCAR!

We don't play only the familiar salsa. The music is fresh from Cuba, Miami and the islands of the Caribbean. Reggaeton, Merengue, Latin Jazz, the latest Latin pop - plus a few fun surprises of contemporary English tunes with a Latin twist. We already have crowds who really love it.

Our place is comfortable and intimate, with a "clubby" feel and when the band begins to play it fills with the vibrations of a true Latin Soul Party - sexy, fun and sometimes maybe a little bit...crazy.

I am at AZZUCAR! every night, sometimes even on stage. I look forward to meeting you.

A todos mis amigos latinos: Alli los espero.

BarCelona is a wine bar tuned towards a Mediterranean theme. Located off the popular Mohamed Sultan district at Robertson Walk, it exudes the Spanish ambience both inside, as well as at the courtyard by the fountain.

At one end of the wine bar is a pool table, surrounded by tall tables and chairs. This is the regular hang out area for the executives who prefer public mingling and networking. At the other end are mixtures of more laid-back seating chairs and tables, couches, and sofas. Hidden in the secluded corner of the wine bar is a private seating area - strictly for VIPs, and by reservations only. Right in the middle, you will find a long winding bar counter that flows with the place, the “live” bands and their music.

Featuring more than 100 labels of wines from countries such as Spain, France, Italy, Chile, Argentina, Australia, South Africa and the USA, you are definitely spoilt for choice. In addition to the wines, BarCelona also carries a selection of champagnes, beers, cocktails, and liquors. Cohibas, Romeo & Julietas, Monte Cristos, and the Bolivars are some of the cigars available. Healthy selections of tapaz and finger foods ensure that you will not starve while enjoying yourselves. Theme nights such as Monday Blues, Ladies Nite, Latin Nite and Soccer Nite promise to entertain you on any chosen night.

BarCelona is also the favorite venue for corporate and private events, verified by the hundreds of events that we have hosted, many of which are repeat customers.

We got our dining room chairs from IKEA. A simple/classic design, made from solid birch (a hardwood) with upholstered seat that could be removed so the covers could be removed and laundered. Very solidly made, looked great, relatively inexpensive for what they were.
Like these -> http://www.ikea.com/sg/en/catalog/products/30162109/
$55, what a bargain!
A dining table is going to be more expensive, look for extendible or 'drop-leaf' tables that can be extended when the seating space is required and otherwise folded down or away (if you need to).

I'm quite a fan of IKEA. Some product lines are great (like those chairs) and some tend to be crappy (IME arm-chairs/sofas)

Any recommendations for solid wood furniture at reasonable pricing?

Hello Lisylou,

We are a family of four with kids of similar age as yours. We will be relocating to Singapore in middle of this year and are presently going though the process of identifying the right school for our kids. I came across your post and could not stop myself asking you for sharing any good insights you have had in the choices available.

Thanks

Re: RE: Conversion of foreign driving licenses for PR

jasonlel:
It appears that PRs must convert their foreign drivers licenses (i.e. complete and pass the Basic Theory Test) within 3 months of receiving PR status.

Does anyone know if what happens, i.e. if it is not possible to do this within the 3 month period due to necessary travel outside of Singapore? Who should I contact or speak to, to get more information?

Many thanks,

Well worst case is you can't drive in Singapore (assuming u are holding your country international driving licence).

Next step is to convert your current driving licence to SG driving licence. Check with SG driving school for more info.

Hope this helps.

Re: indie / alt music bars

JR8:
Hi JR8 - thanks for responding.
I kind of expected that bands coming through Asia would be few and far between. I've just moved from London so I knew I wouldn't be spoilt for choice like I have been for touring and new bands. Having said that, I went to Laneway last week and was pleasantly surprised by the line up (Chvrches, Battles, Grimes), and especially pleased about the crowd that Metz pulled.
Live bands aside and it might be a long shot but is there a Singaporean equivalent to a 'dive bar' that plays a really good mix of new and old indie / alt music?

Hi Griff'nGillyG, 3G for short? ;)
It is interesting when you consider the economics/demographics of it. Small country, high costs, generally socially conservative (incl musical tastes). So whereas purely geographically SG would look like an ideal stop-off on say a regional or world tour, there is not enough audience to make it financially viable. Not least as a band freighting all their gear into a country needs to do a number of concerts to cover the fixed expenses of getting there and setting up the show.
I remember seeing both Pink Floyd and Pearl Jam in the Singapore Indoor Stadium, a large enough venue to generate a decent profit, but I don't think the government are too comfortable with large crowds listening to music some of which has stirring and perhaps 'controversial' lyrics.
One route around single band concerts are festivals. The last one I went to was 'F1 Rocks' which coincided with the F1 races in SG. That was at Fort Canning Park, and it had some memorable bands including ZZ-Top and The Prodigy and several others. That venue is small enough it can be tightly controlled. So that event is worth keeping an eye on; I've been 2-3 times now over the years.
Other times you have to keep an ear to the ground. A few years back I saw The Buzzcocks play in a small venue (a bar at Clarke Quay). IIRC that was a stop-off between Australia and Bangkok. You have to wonder how the venue size made it economic... Anyway, it was an awesome night, not least as the small venue (2-300 pax?) rendered it up-close and intimate.
re: Laneway, interesting, I'm not sure if that appeared in SG whilst I was still there. 'Interesting' as it's a bit more 'alt' than what I'm used to seeing being allowed into SG. There was a festival around 2-3 years ago lined up for a venue somewhere up the East Coast. That was a touring festival that originates out of Australia IIRC. It billed itself (again IIRC) as a rave - probably not a good idea lol. The Prodigy were billed to play at that one too. But the government clicked that 'rave' suggested there might be misbehaviour from the fans and the event was refused a permit. That's why I'm pleasantly surprised to see events like Laneway not only financially viable, but permitted to go ahead. .

It's for those kind of reasons, potential audience size, high fixed costs, unpredictability of the required permits that conspire to limit the quality of the local offering. Materially reduce those negatives > bigger audience, lower costs, less hassle off the authorities => is why Bangkok and Jakarta are worth keeping an eye on too. If you see a gig in a place like that then you can combine it into a long w/e away.
We're posted in the Middle East right now, so the drought of quality 'western' live music impacts us too. There is little audience for such + the authorities wouldn't welcome it either. In that way it's in the same situation as SG. So, I have 5-6 bands of which I'm an avid fan, and I Follow them on Facebook. If any play within say a 1,000 mile radius then there is a decent chance I'm going to go, but I'd go further for something special and stay a few days to make the most of the trip. We've already got one such 'Rock, Dine and Shop' trip planned up to Berlin in a few months time.

Dive-bars? I'm maybe a little long in the tooth for that kind of thing :) I normally associate dive-bars with beach bars where divers like to hang out for a post dive-day beverage or ten :)
There are meant to be a couple of pubs down in Little India that put on micro-gigs. Dunlop Street, around there IIRC? Time Out might have listings.
Perhaps SundayMorningStaple might have some ideas, as his son is well connected into the kind of style of music that might tick some of your boxes. And more importantly since he plays in a local band that performs locally, he's going to know which venues etc you might keep an eye on.

Do you guys know of any Christian Church that is not so traditional maybe? I prefer services similar to hillsong United. I can relate more in a way...

The application for REP is executed only after PR is approved. Therefore, if you were not approved for PR, then you never actually applied for a REP.
