As Gem Bar marches into March (ha, pun intended!), here are the highlights of the events that Nookmag thinks you should be looking forward to.
For the first time ever, Gem Bar is proud to be hosting The Comedy Club March Madness Show on 15th March, 8.30 pm, featuring three highly entertaining comics from across the continent.
Colum McDonnell is one of the best-kept secrets in Irish Comedy. Over the past decade Colum has established himself as a regular on the Irish and UK comedy circuits, with his unusual and often self-depreciating outlook on family, life, love and the pain of being the last living hobbit in Ireland.

Joining The Comedy Club is also Daniel Kinno who delivers insightful and raucous narratives and can be recognised from television where his stand up has been featured on NBC, MTV, The Game Show Network and The WB.
On 29th March, 5 pm at 醉红楼 (Zui Hong Lou), Kult is presenting a group exhibition entitled Chinatown Vinyl Squad. If you’re a fan of vinyls and the vintage, this exhibition is just for you. With the intention of bringing vintage Chinese vinyl record covers back to the public realm with a modern twist, 25 local and international artists were each given a vintage 12” vinyl record cover from the 70s and 80s to showcase their artistic side by drawing, painting, silkscreening and collaging directly onto the album covers.
Covers of the vinyl traced back to the local music scenes in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Malaysia. With a tinge of nostalgia in every vinyl, the covers selected and remixed include the likes of soundtracks from “The Book and the Sword” and “The Singing Killer” as well as singles from singers like Ming Zhu Sisters, Bao Na Na and Bai Bing.
The show features local artists such as Eric Foenander, SBTG, Laqeesh and Reptiliaphobia as well as international artists Russell Taysom from the UK, Deladeso from LA and Ryan Ady Putra from Indonesia.

Juicy Couture knows how to have fun – evident from their signature glamorous prints and vibrant colours obviously. Pair it with the ever growing yoga movement in Singapore, and you’ll get a double (and healthy) dose of a dynamic time.
The Los Angeles brand kicked off its Spring 2014 Collection, Go West, and the launch of their new line of active-wear, Juicy Couture Sports, with Stretch City. Stretch City is a yoga lifestyle website listing studios, shops, restaurants, events, and promotions related to wellness and eco-living in Singapore. It is the baby of two proud mamas – actress/model Liv Lo and fulltime yoga instructor Yun Ng.
The collaboration offered guests a complimentary Dance Yoga session curated by Yun, Liv, and fellow yogi/DJ Amanda Ling. Amanda’s upbeat electronic music gelled well with the fast-paced yoga movements – the session was Singapore’s first ever Dance Yoga gathering. The 45-minute session saw participants following through various yoga moves accompanied by Liv who was clad in a leopard-print sports bra with yoga pants from the Juicy Couture Sports collection.
“It was as much an introduction as it was interesting for visitors to see the dynamics of a yoga class and how music affects the practice,” explained Liv. She added that the Juicy Sport collection encompassed both style and functionality, making it on trend to look great while getting a workout.
Speaking of style, the guests were also invited to view the collection, which is now in stores. Juicy Couture’s Spring 2014 Collection stays true to its playful spirit with a diverse range of styles: cheetah prints, eye-catching graphics, Bohemian glamour -it all exudes coolness without sacrificing on comfort.
The expansion into the active-wear category, Juicy Couture Sports, is further proof that the label carries customers from day to night easily and seamlessly.Contemporary multimedia artist, Baron Von Fancy, has also joined the brand in the season of love, to create a capsule collection of Juicy Couture’s catchphrases in his signature bold, hand-printed font.
To complement the sporty atmosphere, healthy food and beverages were served. Veganburg, an organic vegan burger fast food restaurant, served up cheese balls and vege-patty burgers. Local juicing start-up, Hic Juice, offered raw, organic cold-pressed juices, tying in the themes of sports, health and wellness.
Juicy Couture Sports and Spring 2014 Collections can be found at 391A Orchard Road Ngee Ann City Tower A #03-03 and at 2 Bayfront Avenue The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands #B1-78.
