Jetting off? This chill bar housed in Changi Airport Terminal 3 is the perfect spot to keep yourselves occupied before boarding. If you're feeling , the freshly fried Popcorn Chicken ($12) and the crispy and generously portioned Calamari Rings ($12) from the bar snacks menu are great tummy-fillers. Pair that with a drink or two – there's draft beer, house pour liquors and wine by the glass. We recommend the medium-bodied Noblesse Cabernet Sauvignon ($16) with a smooth finish. P.S. There's a pool table here too!
