Home Haji Lane

For a dose of quirky fun, stroll down Haji Lane, a stomping ground for Instagrammers, fashionistas, artsy types and troopers looking to experience a different side of Singapore.

Possibly the narrowest street in Singapore, this back alley is filled with shophouses built in the 19th century that are now homes to quaint little cafes, cool bars, lifestyle shops and indie boutiques with fascinating graffiti walls.

You can enter the alley via Beach Road or North Bridge Road; either way, you will be greeted with a burst of colours and energy. There are so many gems but here are some of our favourites.

EAT AND DRINK

Piedra Negra

Piedra NegraAt the juncture of Beach Road and Haji Lane, you will see a colourful wall mural and chances are there will be people posing in front of it for that perfect insta-shot. Just behind that wall is Piedra Negra, a Mexican restaurant that serves great burritos, tortilla chips with fresh guacamole made right in front of you. Wash that down with the quintessential margaritas.
