Rentak is a cocktail bar and music space that is inspired by, among other things, David Mancuso’s The Loft in New York. This hidden gem with a tropical indoor garden is housed in a pre-war building in the heart of Chinatown. Rentak is now part of the area’s renaissance of cafes, bars and cultural spaces coexisting with family businesses that have been running for generations, the Chinatown market, even Hindu and Taoist temples.
Rentak (rhythm in Malay) champions Mancuso’s idea of dance parties in intimate spaces featuring an eclectic mix of music. On the dance floor, enjoy specially curated playlists by local vinyl DJs playing a diverse selection of tunes on a warm analogue sound system built by one of the owners. We aim to bring back the retro/ vintage sound of the vinyl playback during the DJ sets on Fridays and Saturdays but do not discriminate against different formats of music playback.
Behind the bar, handcrafted cocktails are prepared by our seasoned mixologists, each named for a beat or a pioneer in sound. We specialise in cocktails (infused with local and regional herbs) and have a range of them, tastefully created by our experienced head mixologist.
