Originally housing the first OCBC Bank in Singapore that was established in the 1930s, CATO merges an old-world rustic charm with rough and industrial décor. The double storey conservation building retains its historic cultural allure as distressed steel, dark stained wood and rough-hewn brick walls accent it. The 6,000 square foot venue builds on the energy of its precinct, shining through large windows framing iconic Chinatown as its backdrop.

CATO’s kitchen is helmed by a culinary team boasting a combined industry experience of over 30 years, serving a cosy 46-seater restaurant on the first floor. The heart of CATO’s restaurant menu features a delectable array of contemporary dishes such as our signature spicy Tom Yum Prawn Risotto. With an array of scrumptious tapas dishes that range from Loaded Beef Beer Chilli Cheese Fries to Crispy Squid in a mouth-watering Thai glaze, there’s enough temptation for the heartiest or moreish of appetites.

CATO’s immersive bar space is one of Singapore’s biggest for craft beers with its extensive and carefully curated row of 14 taps featuring craft favourites from around the world served from behind a 9-metre long bar. The eclectic beer selection varies seasonally and includes craft favourites such as Crew Republic’s Drunken Sailor Indian Pale Ale, Schlenkerla Helles Lagerbier, Fruli and Black House Modern Times Coffee Stout. For the spirited, ask about CATO’s comprehensive selection of artisanal spirits from over 20 renowned boutique distilleries such as KOVAL, High West and Bakon Vodka.

Brought to you by an eccentric team of passionate individuals that endeavour to present an offbeat experience to our patrons, CATO is a refreshing alternative in Singapore’s dynamic nightlife landscape.
