Usually, people tend to differentiate between restaurants with respect to the cuisine they offer. There are renowned places with outstanding reputation that lure visitors with delicately structured menus. There is however a new category of restaurants which attract with their level of invention. To shock customers seems to have become a very profitable business. Whether it is a bizarre location, such as air, or shape of the building and the setting, the most extraordinary idea wins.
A recently opened venue in Singapore will take one’s breath away, to put it mildly. It’s very accurate name “The Clinic” is a powerful magnet – one that is both tempting and mystifying. The infamous Clinic is a multipurpose site which includes bars, dance club, a peculiar restaurant and a merchandize center. The thirteen pill-shaped rooms carry juicy names such as Morphine (the dance floor) or the Delirium lounge.
Nothing in the venue is untrue to its image: the friendly doctors and nurses always keep the guests satisfied. While chatting in their golden wheelchairs, the visitors discuss what delicious cocktail to taste first: “Nitro Sangria” or “Sex on a Drip”? The preparation of local highly-specialized 13-course menu is a grand show of its own. The chemical lab alias kitchen becomes the site of mind-blowing experiments which result in ambitious creations served on kidney-shaped stainless steel plates.
The sterile setting comes with a twist; the Clinic is in fact a shrine to the popular artist Damian Hirst - whose art seems to add the place the touch of perfection.
