Sunrise Bistro & Bar @ East Coast Park



The Tripsters
The story began as we're approached to perform as a resident band at Sunrise Bistro & Bar. It's the very first time we The Tripsters signed a contract for regular gigs.

What I really like about the place is that there's already a keyboard in place, and it hasn't been so convenient and enjoyable sitting on the cajón playing the keyboard - there's really flexibility and I was then regularly playing not one but two instruments. When friends are told the place I'm performing at, they're like wow, that's way to far, from everywhere. That isolated location really makes a difference in traveling there by car and by public transport. Still, thank God I have a direct buss (966) from Bukit Panjang to Marine Parade, although there's still a 10-minute-walk to complete the journey.

Food are overpriced to be frank, in spite of the fact the bar isn't even strategically located. Some food are great though, such as the Large Prawn Aglio Olio, my all time favorite despite being allergic to seafood! You have to try this if you're here one day. We're entitled to selected food and drinks from the menu, and most of the time I get the Large Prawn Aglio Olio, the taste is irresistible.

To those soccer fans out there, Sunrise Bistro & Bar often broadcasts soccer matches on their indoor and outdoor TVs (they have a big screen outdoor).
