Bukit Pasoh Road’s swanky lifestyle club Straits Clan is about to have a new lease of life after being bought over by hospitality group Mandala.

Previously owned by the homegrown Lo and Behold group famous for some of Singapore’s dopest bars like Loof and Overeasy, the 22,000 sq ft space is now called Mandala Club – and it is about to be the home of French restaurant Mirazur for three months from May 14, taking over the KIN main dining room and Clan cafe.

The acquisition was completed on Tuesday, according to Mandala.

“We couldn’t be more excited to announce the launch of the first Mandala Club, here in Singapore, and to show our commitment to delivering extraordinary experiences for members before we even open our doors, Mandala Club will be hosting MIRAZUR, the World’s No.1 restaurant,” Mandala CEO Ben Jones said in a press release.

“The next chapter of the club’s journey starts today and represents an evolution from the superb foundations set by The Lo & Behold Group and the Straits Clan team over the last three years.”

Singapore-based Mandala used to operate restaurants Oxwell & Co and Operation Dagger before closing them amid the pandemic. Lo and Behold will re-invest into the Mandala group as part of the Straits Clan acquisition.

Mirazur is located on the French riviera and has been awarded three Michelin stars and topped the World’s Best Restaurants list. Its three-month pop-up is the first of many plans in store for the members club.

Helmed by Italian chef Mauro Colagreco, the restaurant will showcase six- and nine-course menus inspired by the moon, including dishes like lamb confit served with a salad and seaweed, and fish with black garlic and liquorice. Colagreco is known for experimenting with produce and looking to the lunar cycle for his harvests.

Club members can get special priority access to early bird reservations that open today via the member phone application while the public can reserve from April 21 online.
