A backyard tea bar, pop-up bookstore in a coffee shop, and 10 seater swing
Best known for their shophouses and old-school charm, the Katong and Joo Chiat neighbourhoods have always been places of delicious local fare, durians, and touristy photos. But come 15th and 16th December, they will be given a unique glo-up by MINI and transformed into a playground for adults.
Known as MINI EXTRAODDINARY, the inaugural art trail boasts a total of 18 experiential installations weaved in between conserved shophouses and forgotten alleyways.
Meant to get our creative juices flowing and rethink the use of space, buckle up and explore a pop-up bookstore in the famous Song Kee Fishball Noodle with books curated by the well-loved Basheer Graphic Books, a backyard tea bar by Antea Social where you can sip on an exclusive blend of blue pea tea, and a custom-built 10 seater swing!

Adventurers can also dive into an impromptu game at a mini-croquet court, challenge a monstrously-long hopscotch, grab a piece of chalk and doodle all over a communal art piece by illustrator “KROME”, and bring home a postcard set made from a window shutter turned ink stamper, to name a few.
To guide you through the labyrinth of alleys, MINI has maps plastered around the streets, an interactive map available online here, and a version for download here.
Address: Joo Chiat & Katong
Date & Time: 15th – 16th December | 10AM – 7PM
