The Glass Hut 

Pearl’s Hill Terrace, one of the buildings that were once former police barracks from our post-war past, is slowly becoming a safe space for a community of creators. There’s The Potters’ Guilt, outdoor bar Kult Yard, pseudo tattoo workshops, and even a taxidermy studio. 

Located on the 1st floor of Pearl’s Hill Terrace is The Glass Hut, a studio and creative space which hosts art workshops, open jam sessions with resident musicians, and parties on the weekends. The plus point is that it’s just an 8-minute walk from Chinatown MRT.

The Glass Hut is temporarily closed. Do follow their Instagram for more updates.

Hidden behind a wooden door on the first floor of Pearl’s Hill Terrace is a multi-disciplinary space that is ever-changing. Some days it’s a jamming studio, on others it transforms into an art gallery, and on certain weekends, it hosts kick-ass dance parties. 

There’s no defining The Glass Hut. Run by a group of friends who all share a common love for music and the arts, it aims to “create experiences that bring back a sense of community.” One thing’s for sure, you’d get a warm fuzzy feeling the minute you step into the cosy space.

There’s also an outdoor garden space flanked by palm trees and fairy lights. Occasionally, it hosts art markets, but you’d usually find people just chilling outside over drinks most nights. 

A safe space for local musicians

Within its four walls, music is the glue that unites the community here. After all, singer-songwriter Nathan Hartono, theatre actor Andrew Marko, master trumpeter Farhan Remy, and guitarist Cruise Chen are part of the crew behind The Glass Hut. 

But you don’t have to be a professional musician to be part of the community. There are free and easy open jam sessions where you can let your musical talents run free.

There’s a drum kit and microphones in the space that you can use, but you can also bring your own instruments and cables to plug and play. There are no set days for open jam sessions, but you can keep yourself updated by following The Glass Hut’s Instagram account.

You can also rent out the space to jam for $50/hour.

Artsy workshops 

If you’re tone deaf and can’t play the recorder to save your life, you can either just hang out while listening to the music or let your imagination run wild at the many art workshops they run. 

There’s a Retro Art Jam Session ($35) for those who want to get messy with paint; an Applied Theatre Session ($25) if you’ve got a flair for the dramatic; and even a Butoh Workshop ($25), which teaches the basics of the Japanese dance art form.

The young ones can also take part in Little Hut Adventures ($40/2 hours), a kids-only art workshop where they can paint with their fingers, experiment with cloud dough, and just get messy. 

Check out The Glass Hut 

Those who say Singapore doesn’t have soul definitely haven’t been to creative spaces like The Glass Hut, where everyone’s out to let their inner child run wild. It’s also just next door to Kult Yard, so you can go and grab a cocktail once you’ve had your share of art and music.
