Updated: Aug 25

The party's moved from the dance floor to the dinner table at Orchard Towers.

Psst, have you ever heard of Orchard Towers? That iconic place in Singapore that's been through more transformations than a pop star's hairstyle? Once a hotspot for party animals, now it's more like a spot for... foodies and office peeps? Yep, you read that right. Let's spill the tea.

Orchard Towers' Infamous Past

Back in the day, Orchard Towers was the place to be (or not be, depending on your parents' curfew). Known as the '4 Floors of Whores,' it was jam-packed with go-go bars, strip clubs, and discos. If you wanted to boogie all night, this was your playground.

But alas! The authorities were like, "Nuh-uh, this ain't it chief," and started shutting down the nightclubs. Concerns about "public safety, vice activities, and nuisance" were the party poopers here.

Current State of Orchard Towers

Fast forward to the present, and user @x3rai is wandering through Orchard Towers. What's left? Not much, fam. Nightlife's gone. But the foodies are taking over.

Get ready to say "Sawadee ka" to some lip-smacking Thai food at Orchard Towers! User @eunice is sharing the love for Thai Tantric on Level 3, calling it one of her favorite Thai places in Singapore. From Pad Thai to Thai green milk tea and Tomyum Noodles (specifically red soup with Thai noodles), she’s got the deets on this must-try spot. 😋 User @roberttan98 adds that the basement's got other popular food spots for office folks nearby. Adventure awaits!

Korat Thai Cafe

Opens Mon - Sat, 11:30am - 11pm

But wait, there's more! @x3rai was on a Thai food quest and found Korat Thai Cafe. Khao Soi in Orchard Towers? Shocking but true! Just remember to pre-order a day ahead; good things take time.

And if you're feeling adventurous, user @dinastik's got a tip for you. Orchard Tower might be "the dark side of Orchard," and reaching level 3 could be a challenge (you'll know if you've been there). But the reward? Korat Thai Cafe, open for more than 20 years and serving generous portions of authentic Thai delights. Not too spicy, but oh-so-delicious.

Opens Mon - Sat 6am - 3am | Sun 6am - 12am

Now, let's take a trip to the basement, where the food scene is as lively as a TikTok dance-off. @x3rai scoped out the area and found that the nightlife might be gone, but the "cai fan" is thriving and delicious, according to @cowmoolove.

Over at M73 Food Court, user @missgreedypig discovered Mee Hoon Kueh that's thin, soft, and kway teow-like. Not a fan before, but now? She wiped the bowl clean! And @sherbakes gives a thumbs up to Chai Chee's famous bak chor mee, with springy noodles, stuffed meatballs, and an 18-ingredient soup base. Celebs are digging it, and so should you. Pricey, but worth it. 👌🏼

A New Era for Orchard Towers?

So, what's the update on Orchard Towers? From wild nights to Thai rice (Khao Soi, anyone?), it's a tale of transformation fit for a Netflix docuseries. Is this a new era? Only time will tell, but one thing's for sure: Orchard Towers is never boring. Maybe one day, you'll find yourself pre-ordering that Khao Soi, chowing down on Pad Thai, or exploring those basement foodcourts, thinking, "Orchard Towers, you've still got it.”
