This is one of our favourite options that doesn't neatly fit into any box. This 2 hour session combines a beekeeping masterclass with honey tasting, and you'll get a yummy organic honey cocktail/mocktail to end the session. Our favourite part? It all takes place at a secret rooftop farm/bar that reminds us of speakeasies abroad. This experience is both child-friendly (age 3+) and pet-friendly!Option Highlights✅ Whimsical, raw, and thoughtfully crafted rooftop farm/bar not open to the public ✅ Learn the ins-and-outs of beekeeping! ✅ Honey tasting to learn about the different flavour notes present in honey✅ End the session with a yummy farm-to-table honey cocktail Option DescriptionThis super unique 2 hour experience includes an organic farming masterclass, a bee farm visit, and a once-in-a-lifetime bee-farm-to-table experience. The detailed 2-hour program includes:1. A hands-on lesson by an expert instructor on how to farm organically - you will learn how good soil can help you avoid the use of pesticides and even get to bring home a pot of the soil you mixed with a high potential plant cutting (e.g. basil/ lemon *subject to seasonal supply).2. An up-close viewing of the bee-farm in bee suits — learn about the hardworking honey bees and their different kinds of nests and hives, while you hear them buzzing around you. 3. A truly unique farm-to-bar tasting experience — Begin with a honey tasting session and learn about the different flavours of unifloral honey, then end the evening with cocktails/mocktails topped with fresh garnishing, straight from the garden.NOTE: Interacting with bees come with the inherent risk of being stung. While you will be well taken care of, those with severe allergies to bee stings should not sign up. Child FriendlyThis Experience is suitable for children aged 3 years and up. We will provide bee suits for all participants. ​Take note that you will have to climb a spiral staircase 3 levels up (and down). We encourage all guests to wear covered shoes for safety reasons.Pet FriendlyYes! You can bring a small-medium-sized pet along.

The Unexpected

We bet you've never seen something like this in Singapore. The Unexpected is a collection of unique experiences: rooftop farming, secret pizza club, desert-themed bar and kayaking in the mysterious waters. Each one transports you to different places as if you are overseas. The Sundowner is an urban farm + lounge, atop a conserved shophouse in the hip Siglap restaurant belt. Learn the fundamentals of organic farming from a master gardener; don a bee suit and get cosy with some bees; and sample unifloral honey and farm-to-table infusions. Wanna make your own pizza? Join Secret Pizza Club for a 3hr Pizza-making Experience. In true DIY spirit, you will do everything hands-on, from starting the fire to preparing the pizza to cooking it up in the self-built brick oven. All at the cosy backyard of The Sundowner. Perfect for families, friends, and team-bonding sessions. Try your hand at mixing cocktails at the wondrous Bedouin's Tent, Singapore's first desert-themed bar. The Cocktail-mixing Experience will introduce you to mixology and the basics of classic cocktails over 1.5hrs, set in a desert-dwelling replete with a sand floor and mood lighting and music. ​ Ninja Kayakers - explore Singapore's wild rivers and reservoirs on inflatable kayaks! The experienced and adventurous guides will take you through innovative routes that will show you Singapore as you've never seen before.

We booked a session with the secret pizza club as a form of a mini-retreat from our hectic days and to celebrate a friends' birthday and we were not disappointed! The session was fun, interactive, and warm, with our friendly hosts. Definitely would go again if the opportunity arises.

A very special experience! Felt like an adventure. It was cosy and intimate and felt far away from reality - even though we were only a few minutes away from East Coast Road! Thanks to the team for the warm hospitality.

Helpful Questions from Other Travellers

Q
Hello, we are so excited to book our experience with you! What happens if it rains? The weather lately has not been ideal or predictable so we thought we would check first! Thank you so much.
A
Hi Kylie, thank you for your questions. Part of The Sundowner's appeal is its open rooftop, but in the event of heavy rain at the start of your Experience / Lounge session, they may postpone the booking to a later date of your choice, subject to availability. If it starts raining after you begin your Experience / Lounge session, there is a gazebo at the rooftop so you can continue without getting wet!
Q
What should I pack?
A
Closed toe shoes with high socks (to climb up the spiral staircase)
Reusable bag (To take home some plants!)
Water bottle
