This is one of our favourite options that doesn't neatly fit into any box. This 2-hour session takes place on a secret rooftop farm + lounge in Siglap over sunset, and it reminds us of speakeasies abroad!Option HighlightsThe Sundowner's passionate hosts will show you how everything in nature is interconnected: From feeding soil critters with vegetable scraps, you'll also create organic compost, which boosts healthy plants free of chemical pesticides, making them bee-friendly! Then the bees on the rooftop help pollinate the flowers which will bear bountiful fruit. Finally you'll get to taste rare flavours of honey, and forage from the herbs around you to garnish your sunset drink. It's child-friendly (age 3+) and pet-friendly. You'll leave with great photos and memories you and your friends or kids will talk about for weeks to come! As a value-add The Unexpected offers on all its experiences, your hosts will take photos of your experience and share them with you after (free-of-charge) so it's very Instagram-friendly too!Option DescriptionThis one-of-a-kind experience packs in 3 hands-on and fun activities over 2 hours: an organic farming class, an up-close honeybee encounter, and farm-to-table tastings of unifloral honeys and garden cocktails. 1. Organic Farming Class: A hands-on lesson by an expert gardener on the forgotten secrets of organic farming — you will learn how healthy crops starts with good soil; how to avoid the use of pesticides; inspect soil critters up close; and end off with mixing and creating high nutrient compost using food scraps!2. Bee Encounter: An up-close encounter with thousands of live honey bees, while wearing real working bee suits — learn about the crucial role these misunderstood animals play for our environment; different species' nests and hives, and observe them foraging from the flowers growing all around the farm. 3. Farm-to-table tastings: Begin with a honey-tasting session and learn about the different flavours and textures of unifloral honey, then end the evening with cocktails/mocktails topped with fresh garnishing, straight from the garden.NOTE: Interacting with bees come with the inherent risk of being stung. While you will be well taken care of, those with severe allergies to bee stings should not sign up. Child-FriendlyThis Experience is suitable for children aged 3 years and up. We will provide bee suits for all participants. ​Take note that you will have to climb a spiral staircase 3 levels up (and down). We encourage all guests to wear covered shoes for safety reasons.Pet-FriendlyYes! You can bring a your pet along for this experience.

Itinerary: The Sundowner
The Sundowner

Discover a hidden rooftop farm, learn about bees and organic farming.

  • The Sundowner (East Coast Road, The Sundowner Farm & Speakeasy, Singapore) - 15 mins before
  • To start, you will learn the basics of organic farming, based on long-forgotten principles of soil nutrition. Study how to create good soil, which also prevents pest attacks. Lastly, get some plants for you to take home.
  • Then buzz along to something special: An apiary! The Sundowner houses several beehives, and you'll get to view them up close. Learn about how bee communities work together, and how honey is produced.
  • Enhance and finish your visit with a unique farm-to-bar experience: honey-tasting session that lets you appreciate and describe the flavours of fine unifloral honey from all around the world.
  • Finally, chill with cocktails with fresh garnished herbs hand-plucked from the farm.

Helpful Questions from Our Community

Q
Hello, we are so excited to book our experience with you! What happens if it rains? The weather lately has not been ideal or predictable so we thought we would check first! Thank you so much.
A
Hi Kylie, thank you for your questions. Part of The Sundowner's appeal is its open rooftop, but in the event of heavy rain at the start of your Experience / Lounge session, they may postpone the booking to a later date of your choice, subject to availability. If it starts raining after you begin your Experience / Lounge session, there is a gazebo at the rooftop so you can continue without getting wet!
Q
What should I pack?
A
Closed toe shoes with high socks (to climb up the spiral staircase)
Reusable bag (To take home some plants!)
Water bottle
