313@Somerset Mall is fast becoming the most popular ‘one stop shop’ on Orchard Road with a wide variety of international young fashion and plenty of places to eat and drink, including an impressive food court on the top floor. Handy for transport, the mall is located directly above the MRT station at Somerset. 313@Somerset shopping stands out from the crowd because of its young, hip vibe and affordable brands. There is always something going on, such as a live fashion launch, live music or quirky bars hosting events, making it a great place to visit for those checking out Orchard Road.
There are plenty of great shops to check out over 313@Somerset’s eight floors. For great basics head to either Cotton On or Japanese Brand Uniqlo, which also sell some great Japanese t-shirts in quirky prints or with famous cartoon characters emblazoned on them. For a dash of sunny Spanish fashion head to either Zara or Mango. American brands are also well represented, with two Levi’s stores and Singapore’s flagship branch of great bargain fashion: Century 21. Other brands that have outlets here include Billabong, Esprit, New Look, Aldo shoes, Ecco and Puma.
Another store that attracts the crowds is HMW where you can pick up newly released CDs and DVDs, or check out the special offers on classics. For your IT needs, head up to EpiCentre or eServe; both stock Apple products alongside other well-known brands. If shopping is wearing you down then there are plenty of places that are perfect for pampering. It’s always fun to have your feet nibbled by tiny fish or enjoy a reflexology massage at Kenko, and for pretty nails and feet check out the mani-pedi services at Summer Nail Salon or Plush Nails.
The inspiration for the mall was taking the outdoors inside, and on the ground floor you find Discovery Walk, which is designed to feel like walking along a breezy street in Europe. To compliment this vibe there is a special selection of restaurants and bars to enjoy the atmosphere, including Brotzeit German Beer Bar, Malone’s Irish Bar, Absolute Thai and Trattoria Italian Kitchen. It’s a nice place to chill after shopping and watch the world go by. If you are looking for some great food at decent prices then head upstairs to the food court on level 5. With a wide range of dishes from around Asia it’s the perfect place if you can’t decide what to eat, with 21 stalls and five restaurants to pick from.
