Relive the good old days of Singapore at XIAO KOPITIAM
(held at 21 Moonstone) with delicious food, ice cold beers, euphonious music, chill vibes and a boisterous friendly crowd with fun activities like our childhood favorite Country Eraser Tournament, hand-poked flash tattoos and tarot card readings this coming Sunday.
is a bar and artistic co-working space. The space was created by like-minded youths, where you can just hang out with friends. The former industrial canteen was transformed into a hangout for the millennial hustlers from all walks of life. The space aims to provide a clear, innovative environment to provide the necessary clarity and headspace required for heavy duty thinking, conceptualizing and maybe a little bit of drinking.
The cozy and homely hangout spot is stocked with nostalgic paraphernalia of Singapore’s yesteryear. It transports you to a simpler time, a more tranquil laid-back pace of life with no fuss, no frills, cheap beer, good music and great people. It is the perfect place to put your feet up, drink without worrying about breaking your bank, and build friendships that last a lifetime.
21 Moonstone is hosting XIAO KOPITIAM – a reimagined version of a classic Singaporean Sunday. On 1 April, Sunday, from 11am to 5pm, the space will be converted to resemble a mini market, with everything quintessentially Singaporean from food, drinks, beers and other interesting activities to take part in.

The Wet Tee Shirt label is a homegrown brand featuring witty and hilarious Singaporean-esque designs and limited edition 21 Moonstone merchandise. These unique and creative T-shirts will be on sale and will make the perfect memento for your fun day at XIAO KOPITIAM.
Flash Tattoos by The Standard Tattoo Co.
