The former chapel, with its magnificent interior, is also available for private functions and weddings. Open large lawn spaces and the courtyard are now used for various festivals, musical and theatrical shows as well as private events. Its hallowed portals house more than 20 food and beverage outlets for you to explore.

Among the mainstays for drinking and dining at Chijmes is Bobby's Restaurant and Bars where you can satisfy your cravings for hearty ribs, pizzas, pasta, and American-style fare. The bar offers a good selection of cocktails, including the popular Singapore Sling. Another is Lei Garden Restaurant that presents fusion gourmet dishes combined with traditional Chinese specialities such as crispy roast pork and grilled lobster steak.
