I spend over 12 hours at New Bahru, here's what you can expect from this lifestyle cluster

Old-school new horizons.

This is New Bahru in a nutshell.

Previously Nan Chiau High School, this project—spearheaded by hospitality company The Lo & Behold Group—now houses more than 50 local businesses from sectors spanning food and beverage, retail, wellness, entertainment, education, arts and culture.

Located in River Valley, New Bahru is set to hold its official grand opening this September. But the creative cluster welcomed members of the public at its Sneak Peek open house event on June 22 and 23.

I had the opportunity to immerse myself in a full day at New Bahru, and the experience has left an impact on me.

Food, fun workshops and retail therapy. That’s what I go to school for.

Entering New Bahru, what immediately struck me was its architecture.

Just one look and one could tell it was a space where students once roamed.
