Timbre Group's newest bilingual live music concept Switch is not your typical Mandarin-pop live house and god forbid, never, never mix us up as a karaoke bar either! Like any Singaporean, we pride ourselves on our ability to switch and converse between our national language of English and our mother tongue. Some of us may have difficulties reading in our native language but we sure can swear perfectly well with it. But all of this doesn't matter because this is a live music bar by Timbre. And at any Timbre venues, you can expect good music and quality live performances on stage.

Switch is for the closeted Mandarin-pop fans who refuse to queue up for hours to meet your idols, refuse to wave your glow stick in the dark at gigs and will not give into the argument that one language-genre of music is more superior to the other. Nor does Switch want to alienate those who are more adequate trading puns in English, more adequate reading off an English menu and know that Mumford & Sons are a band, and not tailors. Step into the light. Switch is for you. PS.

Stick around enough at Switch, and our resident half-man-half-fish guitarist, Cod "The Dan" Fretboard may just materialise right in front of you. Above really translates to: Switch is the latest live music restaurant and bar by the Timbre Group, located in the arts and heritage district of Bras Basah. The 300-seater, bilingual venue sets the stage for the best up-and-coming Singaporean musicians proficient in Mandarin & English pop-rock and sees live performances nightly; from an intimate 2-piece duo to a full 6-piece band rocking out on stage on weekend nights. Not just a place for live music and drinks, Switch serves up a menu incorporating the best of what Timbre has to offer in tapas and pizzas; and teases with some crazy Asian-inspired dishes.
