To me, it is a stage dedicated to creative people”.

This experience is heightened by a menu inspired by an ‘opposites attract’ theme. Dining is seen as a meld of Western and Asian influences, creating a new blend of borderless cuisine, reviews shout about the lobster porridge and the range of expertly mixed artisanal cocktails. 

Starck commented, “M Social will be the new and vibrant place in Singapore where elegance, creativity and technology meet to offer a unique experience to our global smart tribe”. The Beast and Butterflies restaurant makes for an eclectic interior merging worlds and presents a unique experience for the millennial, the food lover and the creative.
