Your next gathering along Orchard Road doesn’t have to just comprise of the same old itinerary of shopping, eating and then yet more shopping. 82 Social House, or 82 SoHo, is a relatively new bar-cum-entertainment centre in the area with plenty for your gang to bond over.

The establishment comprises a board game cafe Kommune and billiards gastro bar Tigress. These were previously known as VoiceBooth and Thirsty4Balls at The Cathay before their relocation and rebranding.
