Located at Klapsons The Boutique Hotel, Fabrika by Chivas 18 is a rooftop-style ba.
I believe that it took me about three tries before I finally got to chill at Fabrika @ Klapsons finally, because they are always having private events! It was worth the wait though, because the sunset was breathtaking and it was setting over our heads. This signature rooftopbar atop a new boutique hotel was very spacious and well-furnished, much to my surprised delight. The bar counter was long, and there were choices of high tables by the balcony or cushy couches for unwinding in. The live band was belting out lots of good songs the entire night as well.
We shared the Let's Chicken Out platter (SGD$26.00) consisting of chicken wings, chicken meatballs and grilled boneless chicken leg, served with BBQ sauce and sambal chilli. Well, a rather delightful and meaty platter to go along with drinks.
The I See Food platter (SGD$28.00) was being served next - a sinful but delicious platter of battered scallops, prawns and squids etc served with remoulade sauce and shoyu for dips. I reckoned they went well with drinks as well - and the crab claws were actually mounted on sugar cane sticks, adding a touch of sweetness to the savoury, crispy item.
We also had an item that we consider a "must-have" at bars / pubs - the Topshells (SGD$15.00) - served with onions, chilli and lime. The topshells were large and juicy - would've been nicer if more spicy (in my humble opinion).

Went for drinks on a Friday night with a few friends. The drinks were expensive, at $28 for a champagne cocktail, but thankfully there was happy hour one-for-one.
The drinks were not too memorable, but they took quite a while to serve the drinks and got the orders mixed up, so two of my friends ended up waiting half an hour for their cocktails after our persistent enquiries. The waiter apologized but unfortunately my friends were unable to finish their cocktails as we had to rush off to dinner.
Other than that, the atmosphere is lovely - a nice open-air skybar, though the view is not amazing. The clientele are mostly people who work in the offices nearby.
Rooftop bars seem to be the trend these days, and I recently had the chance to check out Fabrika at Klapsons Hotel.
The vibe is a really cool limited seating rooftop setting and the cocktails are great too. Tried the chivas passion which had a sweet finish - ideal for the ladies.
With large couches around, the place is ideal for hanging out and chilling out with friends after work but as seats are limited, it is recommended to make a booking or risk being turned away.
