The main appeal of this mall is its Cineplex. The location is a plus — walk able distance from town, and a stone’s throw away from Dhoby Ghaut station. For an ardent Cathay devotee, the Cathay serves to be a great alternative when one wishes to skip the inevitable crowds that town draws, especially during the weekend.

Concept of the mall is focused mainly on the lifestyle aspect. Stores like egg3, Leftfoot and Vol.ta cater to the fashion conscious. The more mainstream restaurant here is Astons, which is almost always filled to the brim, so it is unadvisable to make impromptu visits as the queue can easily multiply in mere minutes.

St Games Café can also assist in killing time if the next movie timeslot is hours away, and at a reasonable price too. Ben & Jerry’s provides a casual ambience for a catch up session over quality ice cream. At the basement level, there is a mini counter for movie tickets! Saves the time and effort to go all the way up when you can purchase your tickets more conveniently.

Overall, I like the vibe that Cathay exudes — it is laidback, unpretentious and the lack of an extensive crowd makes it a good hangout to chill.
