Being a non-drinker, walking down Boat Quay at night dread me. With the lingering cigarette smoke and the humid weather Singapore has, I would never imagine myself dining at Boat Quay but little did I know what Dallas offers is more than I can imagine.
Having a bar on the ground floor with alfresco seating that overlooks Singapore Asian Civilisations Museum and the other landmarks of City Hall, allows one to enjoy the Singapore nightlife along the waters.
Up to the second level brings a different perspective of the place, a restaurant serving American fare on the second floor. Having lunch with a view of Boat Quay in air-conditioned comfort is something which I enjoyed through the meal.
A 'Den' on its third level with a decent selection of wines and beer, one will be surprised by the other dimension Dallas provides.
The use of red and black provides a touch of class, the mysterious feel presented by surrounding tinted mirrors and the muted lighting provide a relaxing feel for one to unwind after work.
The use of artworks allow diners to take things slow and observe the decor the owner has put up and it is no surprise why this place is getting popular for functions and gatherings.
And who can resist the view offers at the balcony at level 3.
Thank you for LIC's effort to organize a wonderful food tasting session at Dallas. I am definitely going back for their 50% off promotion on Dallas' fiery or regular baby back pork ribs on Monday and Tuesday Nights (from 5.30pm to 10.30pm till 19 Jun 2009).
