Alfresco and Chill @ Paradox Merchant Court, Clarke Quay – Relax with Bar Bites, Local Tapas, and Drinks by the Singapore River (Media)

Available from 5pm every Wednesday to Sunday, Alfresco and Chill offers customers a condensed version of Ellenborough Market Cafe’s buffet, which includes mouthwatering selections of local-inspired tapas and snacks.
