The Cathay which was opened in 1939, redeveloped and reopened in 2006 is a national monument with it’s signature facade ‘Cathay’ facing Bras Basah Road.
Located beside the SOTA (School of The Arts), the Cathay is a popular venue for the young and trendy and of course movie goers. Before a movie, we had a light bite at The Assembly Ground and did a little window shopping at the Assembly Store.
For brunch, gatherings, spend an afternoon or evening, the cafe is a good choice. When we were there just passed lunch time, about 3pm on a Sunday, there were ample seats.
