The Arts House

This two-story grandeur was once intended to be a private mansion. It was designed and erected by Irishman George Coleman in 1827 on a site previously occupied by the Temenggong of Singapore and his followers. The Palladian-style building then served as the Singapore Court House until 1939 after which it became the seat of legislature. Complementing its elegant display of pillars and porticoes, a little bronze elephant presented to the State by King Chulalongkorn of Siam in 1871 stands guard outside. The building now is a venue for contemporary visual arts, music, dance, film, comedy, and theater. Guided tours are available.

Victoria Theatre & Concert Hall

Having largely shaped the art-based landscape of the country, the Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall is nestled in the heart of Singapore, and is one the most coveted jewels of the City. Dubbed as the 'grand old dame' of Singapore’s performing arts scene, the theater and concert hall is made up of two elaborate buildings and a glorious clock tower. Built in 1862, this elegant structure has received many facelifts. Having braved the ravages of time, it stands today as an invigorating canvas bathed in the finer nuances of Neoclassical style. Designated a national monument in the February of 1992, this ornate building retains its colonial architectural heritage while offering state-of-the-art facilities for concerts and theater performances. Said to be one of the oldest performing art venues of the country, this pristine white building sits amid rolling green lawns, in striking contrast with its surrounding contemporary edifices. The building is crowned by a gleaming turquoise dome, and also houses the sophisticated Sinfonia Ristorante which serves up delectable Italian fare amid finely-crafted interiors.
