Chill out with friends over an ice-cold beer
After a hard day's work in Singapore, what better way to wind down than chill out with friends over an ice-cold beer? Situated in Emerald Hill, the Ice Cold Beer pub has been one of the 'in' places to go in Singapore for many years. Here, patrons can play darts, pool, watch sports on big screen televisions or just relax and listen to classic rock music from the 60s and 70s, played over the pub's recently installed d&b audiotechnik reinforcement system.
The system, comprising E0s, E12 subwoofers all driven by d&b E-PAC and D12 amplifiers, was designed by d&b's Dominic Koh and installed by the pub staff. "The pub chose to use d&b equipment because they wanted a system that could provide high quality sound and at the same time allow comfortable conversation to take place," said Sebastian Song, d&b's Asia representative. "From that point of view, the loudspeaker system has been a great success," he continued.
Situated in a converted 1910 Peranakan shop with high ceilings and a massive wall mirror, it radiates authentic European warmth. Peranakan is a term used for the descendants of the very early Chinese immigrants to the Nusantara region of Malaya, the archipelago of modern-day Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. The bar boasts over fifty varieties of local and imported beers including a suitable range from Belgium, and is popular with both locals and expatriates. Beer lovers can attempt to obtain a 'Master of Beer Addiction' certificate or, after a few pints it is easier to just say an MBA, by drinking every variety of beer they stock in a specified time. Those who complete this onerous task within just a month receive a case of beer, a tee-shirt and of course, most importantly, the coveted MBA. The beer unsurprisingly, is served ice-cold from glass tank chillers.
Hungry after drinking all that beer? Why not try one of the pubs celebrated nine-inch hot dogs served with a variety of toppings washed down with, naturally, another ice-cold beer. That MBA is almost in the bag!
