Singapore is known as a dining destination the world over, but as a musical mecca, it doesn’t hold the same reputation. Montreux, however, isn’t going to be listen on the same level as Lyon, Geneva or other nearby cities in the Michelin Guide, but their contribution to the world of music is disproportionately high, as they are home to the Montreux Jazz Festival, the second largest such fete in the world. Montreux Jazz Cafe on Claymore Road in the Orchard district of Singapore combines the two, with a menu that is up to the SG standard and a soundtrack that evokes the best of the Swiss lake city in the first week of July. Book a table and take the train out to Orchard Road for a live music restaurant in Singapore that is the feast for both the taste buds and the ears.

Most people’s immediate idea of eating out in Singapore takes in the full range of dining options in the city, whether that be the Chinese restaurants, the Little India curry houses, the local Nyonya offerings or the wide variety of Western outlets to be found all over the city. The concept of dinner and show is nowhere near as well embedded in the mind of the Singapore diner, but there is a growing trend towards it, and Montreux Jazz Cafe is at the forefront of this wave. Their food is top-notch – predominantly Western, given that their name tips its hat to the jazz capital of Europe in the Swiss city of Montreux – and the atmosphere is suitably stylish to boot, but the real attraction is the opportunity to be entertained as you chow down, with a repertoire of live music acts to devour along with your dinner. Head on over to Claymore Street in Orchard to find out what the fuss is about.
Swiss cuisine in Singapore is few and far between, but it is worth noting when you sit down to dine at Montreux Jazz Cafe in Orchard.

Your meal will be accompanied by live music the likes of which are lesser seen in Singapore, from afrobeats to Brazilian jazz and just about anything else you can imagine. Check the what’s on, check the menu and get ready to check your coat at the door as you book a table, take the train to Orchard MTR and make a yourself comfortable at Montreux Jazz Cafe.
