Singapore – Hospitality company The Lo & Behold Group is gifting the local community a public reading room and tea salon.
Located in the lively Kampong Glam neighbourhood, LookSee LookSee is an intimate public reading room that doubles as a tea salon serving home-grown speciality tea in hand-crafted vessels by a local ceramicist, all for free.
Set in an 1820s shophouse in a district steeped in arts and culture, the communal space by leading hospitality business The Lo & Behold Group aims to bring the city’s burgeoning creative scene a step closer to the public. Its evolving library is curated by thought-leaders across various lifestyle sectors as a show-and-tell of titles that have inspired their work and life.
Featuring gently scalloped banquette seats and reading nooks, the open space is designed to welcome a collaboration of creative minds while providing a quiet retreat from the neighbourhood’s eclectic surroundings.
The venture operates on a gratitude system where guests can choose to tip as a gesture of appreciation. The Lo & Behold Group managing partner Wee Teng Wen believes LookSee LookSee is ‘a good way to give back to the community’ and an extension of its hospitality values.
