5 reasons why you should check out our expanded atrium space at UE Square ${ getRelativeCalendar(`2020`, `12`, `23`) } ()

Hi Temple Cellars fans. If you’ve visited our physical store at UE Square the last couple of months, you’d have noticed a wee change. Ok, more than a little actually. We’ve taken over the wide open central atrium space conveniently located right beside our bottle shop, converting it into a spacious bar and taproom.

More than just additional square feet, this expansion has given us the freedom to offer exciting new experiences and products not possible before. More shelving space means being able to stock a wider range of offerings (even for online orders) and more seats means more convenience for all. But beyond that, here are 5 more reasons why you should come check us out.

A safe space

Safety and hygiene is number one priority these days, and for us at Temple Cellars, we take our precautions seriously. We adhere strictly to social distancing rules, ensuring seating capacity at each table conforms with current regulations, while also making sure that a wide berth is maintained between groups. This is done so that everyone can enjoy their drinks and catch up with friends, all with peace of mind. The safety of our guests and staff is always paramount.

Rotating taps and featured wines

While there were beers on tap before, the small shop space meant having only a small selection and limited seating. Now, we’ve got 8 rotating taps (current tap list here) going at any given time and capacity to accommodate 60 people comfortably. So go ahead and get your freshly tapped craft beers and enjoy it at leisure. Not only that, we’ve got featured wines now as well, curated by our own in-house sommelier, just in case you’re more in the mood for vino by the glass.

Happy hour deals

We’ve got one of the best happy hour deals in town for all you day drinkers out there. From 12-6pm every weekday, selected craft beers on tap and wines by the glass are 1-for-1, no questions asked. So come early, drink and chill, or even get some work done remotely at the same time. Drinking alone? No problem. We’ll hold your second beer or wine for you so that it still comes fresh from the tap or bottle.

Drink at retail prices

Why pay overtly more when you can have your drink at retail rates from our adjoining bottle shop? Sure, you’ll have to pick your cans or bottles yourself, but we think that’s part of the fun. Simply grab a beer, wine, sake or even spirits from our shelves or fridges, pay at the counter, and grab a seat to have your drink right there. Appropriate glassware is provided too. With over 300 different labels available at any given time, there’s definitely something to tickle your fancy.


Not many know this, but we have a Bring Your Own Food policy going on over at UE Square. Yes, that means you’re welcome to bring takeaways, snacks, or even your own homemade meals to enjoy at our space. We only request that you order drinks from us as you do so. You bring the food, we bring the booze. It’s the best arrangement there is. Just remember to clear your own food waste and packaging after.

BONUS: Exclusive launches, events and drops

That’s not all. We occasionally hold launch events and other happenings too, in collaboration with brands big and small. Whether it’s a new local brewery or the arrival of a big international label, stay tuned to our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram) or sign up for our newsletter to know when it happens. You’ll find exclusive drops only carried by us too, so definitely stay tuned for that.
