Right across Aliwal Street is Jalan Klapa. The occupants of this block ranges from restaurants & cafes, hotel and offices. The most eye-catching façade will be the quirky XY Hotel Bugis. You can never miss the bold black exterior wall of the hotel. The cute-character themed pop-up café Kumoya Café is also popular among the locals and tourists. Some of the previous theme adopted by them include Pusheen, Snoopy and Sesame Street. And at the junction of North Bridge Road, you can drop by at a halal Dim Sum restaurant for a quick break with the savoury dumplings.
