Boutique property set to elevate the Lion City’s indie art and music scene
Located just outside the central business district in Jalan Besar, hôtel vagabond, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel reflects the energy of Singapore. The 41-room hotel designed by award-winning French designer Jacques Garcia, blends together traditional Singaporean hospitality with Garcia’s traditional maximalist style.
Housed in a colonial-era Art Deco building, the heart and soul of hôtel vagabond is the Vagabond Salon, a modern interpretation of a Parisian salon, where guests have the opportunity to mingle with resident artists over a crafted cocktail, dine amidst a performance, or watch an independent film.
Music & Relaxation
Three times a week, the Salon is transformed into a music venue featuring a line-up of the most talented live musicians and DJs, showcasing local and visiting up-and-coming artists, from jazz quartets to indie rockers. With 5,000 square feet of luxurious interiors, a state-of-the-art sound system, superb acoustics and a DJ console, the Vagabond Salon is designed as a fully integrated, adaptable space for events to remember.
Offering 41 rooms and suites, each guestroom within the hotel features Italian marble and glass mosaic bathrooms, mahogany furniture and luxurious bedding. In the spirit of the hotel’s artistic vibe, each guestroom houses curated photographs and art pieces, commemorating a diverse array of artistic expression across cultures and time periods.
The hotel also features an Executive Club Lounge for intimate meetings, boasting extensive benefits such as exquisite light bites and premium high speed Wi-Fi. Additionally, guests can sample local signature dishes with a cheeky twist at the hotel’s new restaurant Hot Buns & Thunder Balls.
Art at Every Corner
Ranging from antique works to dazzling contemporary mixed media pieces, hôtel vagabond’s extensive collection of art, highlights techniques and movements across cultures and centuries. As part of the hotel’s independent spirit, a regular calendar of events positions culture and creativity as accessible for all.
The hotel also features a signature rotational artist-in-residence program, which includes on-site performances, intimate events and interactive experiences. Via the hôtel vagabond website, local and international artists from all genres are invited to apply for a residency of up to three months, during which they will stay, work, and converse with guests and visitors.
