Gillman Village, located at Lock road, is a quaint hub of restaurants, pubs and furniture shops frequented by office workers and expatriate families. Formely known as the Gillman Barracks, it used to house the British army and later, some units of the Singapore Armed Forces. For those who crave the old world charm of Singapore's colonial history without any makeover in the mould of Rochester Park or Dempsey, Gillman is definitely the place to go after work in the evening or at night.
Queenstown has many different chillout spots within or at the outskirts of its boundaries. What Gillman Village offers differ greatly from other spots such as Holland Village or Dempsey. Fine diners will prefer Dempsey; expatriates and whackos may like Chip Bee Gardens; young executives may like Gillman Village a lot. It's relatively untouched and its old town charm will continue to light up the night of Queenstown.
