Relax in the urban garden that spreads throughout the space with scrubs, tree trunk tables, and a green wall, or lounge at the open patio on edgy wicker seats and the booth style couch that stretches across the far wall. Despite all that’s going on décor wise however, Loof never feels cramped. The team has done an excellent job of designing a space that feels both spacious, as well as comfortably cosy.
A welcome addition in the newly revamped Loof is the novel gift hut, The Mama Shop. This must-visit is a blast from the past, filled with nostalgic toys, treats and trinkets, and vintage comic books displayed with care!
Completing the backdrop are displays of premium bottles, popular beers and favourites from the region. Asian Sensations, a new category added to the mixed drinks menu, adds five new cocktails with Asian-inspired ingredients: calamansi juice, ginger, pear nectar, cucumber, soya sauce, and mint leaves. The Asian influence also shines through in the food selection with Chilli Crab Dip, Wings Lah, Tiger Toast, Japanese BLT, and more!
After all this time, Loof continues to offer the best view of the Raffles Hotel and her surrounding area, and remains one of the hippest and funkiest places to meet old friends and make new ones. (May 2012)
