Gillman Barracks

Gillman Barracks is a contemporary visual arts cluster built on a former British military barracks which date back to 1936.

Named after officer General Sir Webb Gillman, the barracks once served as recreational facilities and married quarters for the British’s 1st Battalion before World War II.

After major restorations, the gallery was opened in 2012, and is now home to awe-inspiring home-grown galleries and other tenants specialising in art; making it the very first Contemporary Art Enclave in Singapore.

This is a destination inviting all art collectors, art lovers, or just about anyone curious about art. You’ll be immersed in exquisite contemporary art from all parts of the world in an elegant, tranquil establishment surrounded by lush greens. Mizuma Gallery, Sundaram Tagore Gallery, Yavuz Gallery, and FOST Gallery, are just some of the well-respected galleries that have had a presence at the centre.

Creative kids should check out Playeum Children’s Centre for Creativity; a creative space dedicated just for kids aged 1-12. It’s equipped with interactive spaces and activities, custom-built technology and installations, and exciting hands-on exhibitions which change twice yearly.

After checking out the artworks, visitors are invited to unwind at the hip bars, cafes, and restaurants within the barracks. These dining outlets offer such an incredible gastronomic experience that many visitors come just for the food and drinks alone. These include Creamier Handcrafted Ice Cream and Coffee, The Naked Finn, and Masons fine dining.

Happy hours and late-night revelries are best spent at the elegant watering holes found here: Hopscotch, Handlebar, Nekkid, and live music at Timbre.

Twice a month on Friday evenings, Gillman Barracks hosts an amazing Art After Dark, wherein all the tenants launch new exhibits and extend opening hours to entertain guests. The evening is filled with lots of other fun art-focused programmes, food pop-ups, and live music performances.

Gillman Barracks is located at 9 Lock Road in Singapore.
