Chapters Co is a bar hidden behind a bookshelf with Japanese omakase & IG-worthy decor

by Christabel Tan

There’s something about hidden bars that just tickle my fancy. From old-school mama shops to beer fridges, the unique concepts being rolled out never cease to surprise. From the team behind oyster specialist Oyster Co comes Chapters Co, a new hidden speakeasy in Central Mall serving up Japanese fusion cuisine and cocktails.

The space is tucked behind an unassuming bookshelf, and it’s definitely something. Inspired by themes like love, lust, power, greed, and faith, the Victorianesque decor oozes with elements of the illicit. From a chrome red car to a kinky St. Andrew’s cross (BDSM dungeon vibes, anyone?), there are plenty of ways to spice up your Instagram feed.

Which chapter will you choose? It’s your story to tell.

For obvious reasons, you’ve got to order the oysters. Choose between Canadian Fresh Oysters or Murotsu Oysters (S$3.99 with a min. order of 6pcs) and jazz ’em up with burst-in-your-mouth Ikura (S$9.90 for 25g). Pair them with the Fish & Chips (S$16.90) and Aburi Salmon Mentai (S$16.90) for the ultimate “East meets West” experience.

Let go of your worries as you sip on a Mind Eraser (S$18.90), a lethal combination of rum, vodka, pink guava & orange juice, and mint, or the indulgent Baileys-based Chapters Dinosaur (S$18.90).

Fancy dinner with a side of debauchery? The 9 Course Omakase (S$168 for 2 pax) featuring Sashimi, A4 Wagyu Beef Cubes, and Cold Pasta with hotate and amaebi is a great bang for your buck. Who knows? The ambience alone may leave you and your date feeling hot and bothered.
