82 Social House: New Hangout Haven In Orchard With Board Games, Free Retro Arcade & Billiard Bar

82 Social House


Enter the #1 most difficult question to answer: “Where should we go ah?” With the ever-changing pandemic rules, many of us haven’t had to deal with scouring for things to do in Singapore for quite some time. 

But with safe distancing restrictions stabilising and CNY nigh, 82 Social House might just be the answer for your next fuss-free reunion with friends in town.

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.

Your friends will thank you for suggesting a visit to Kommune, which is best known for its board games (from $10/2 hours). There are more than 80 different titles to choose from, ranging from classics like Monopoly to unique finds like Uno Dare. Love We’re Not Really Strangers on IG? You can find their card game here as well.
