Drinks at happy hour...

Singapore, Singapore

We stopped in at the Library for a few drinks early one evening and had some of the best service ever. Por looked after us so well, setting up the seating for us and our two young girls, and bringing a perfect cocktail for a two year old - apple juice in a plastic champagne glass! Not to mention the delicious wine that we had!! We had such a lovely time so thank you very much for looking after us so well. It really makes a big difference going somewhere that makes it easier to be on the go with little ones!

Best tapas in Ko Samui

Melbourne, Australia

We visited ‘The Tapas Bar’ at the Library with our friends. Food was awesome, amazing tapas and so many delicious options. Our waitress Lynn was great and helped us make our choices as there were so many superb tapas to choose from. Cocktails were buy one get one free during happy hour. Amazing value. Highly recommend.
