Whether you’re visiting as a group or solo mode, the audio store/coffee shop provides a safe haven away from the noise.

The Simply Toys outlet has a wicked selection of collectibles from every geeky fandom that you could possibly think of. Then, you can party like it’s the early 2000s by checking out Timezone’s flagship store in VivoCity. The ginormous 12,000 square feet branch features arcades, unique lounges, bowling alleys, and a futuristic indoor bump car ride with LED lights. There’s also a monorail going straight to Sentosa Island if you want to be a beach bum.
