Timbre at Gillman Barracks


It is my first visit to Gillman Barracks and I didn’t know there is a Timbre in this old colonial barracks.

Here is an introduction of Gillman Barracks extracted from their website.

“Gillman Barracks (GB) is Asia’s up-and-coming destination for contemporary art. It will be distinguished as a vibrant centre in Asia for the creation, exhibition and discussion of contemporary art.

Named after British general Sir Webb Gillman, GB is set amid lush greenery and was once a stronghold to the First Battalion of the Middlesex Regiment. The conserved colonial barracks now houses galleries and creative businesses, as well as the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) that will open in 2013.”

Mason and The Naked Finn are the two other dining options over there. It looks like a nice place for a Sunday brunch and weekend dinner.



We arrived at Timbre @ Gillman Barracks at 10.30pm on a Saturday night and am surprised to see many seats available at this place. Perhaps because of its inaccessibility, this Timbre is less crowded compared to their Art House and Substation branch. I love that there are plenty of parking space available (not free of course) and that it is nested in lush greenery! Even the decor revolves around hanging plants, wall of plants and plenty of greens! This is definitely a good place for drinks and life music without the queues and crowd.




We celebrated YX and Kylie’s birthdays there! A lovely bunch of people who are really friendly and welcoming.
