Why he Won: Located on the first floor of Suntec City, Balaclava has always been the representation of elegance for clubs. It’s the true meaning of the idea “Poser”. You dress up to go to Balaclava. If you don’t, you have to risk putting up with strange looks from people all around you. In Balaclava, you walk around and mix. Very ideal for networking. It’s probably the best place to go for that kind of thing. Balaclava is an excellent relaxing-after-a-hard-day’s-work kind of place to go to. And if you don’t do any hard day’s work, it’s still a great place to go to.
House Specialty: Nice armchairs, sexy leather combined with silk and timber, cool bar setup, seats are not too close together, good live band, very well-mixed drinks.
Bet You Didn’t Know: The name “balaclava” comes from Balaklava in the Crimea. During the Crimean War, knitted balaclavas were sent over to the British troops to help protect them from the bitter cold weather. They are traditionally knitted from wool, and can be rolled up into a hat to cover just the crown of the head.
