Where to eat and drink in Duxton Road: Romantic restaurants and bars to bring your date

The Duxton area was a former 13-hectare nutmeg plantation with 1,800 trees introduced to Singapore in 1819 by Sir Stamford Raffles. The nutmeg court at The Pinnacle @ Duxton marks this historic presence, now surrounded by towering blocks and hipster hangouts. Pockets of quiet parks and converted shophouses make this a destination full of character in the midst of the CBD.
