Occupying the almost 200-year-old building that was Singapore's first Parliament House, The Arts House has been offering its audiences a broad range of arts and culture programmes. It also plays an active role in the Singapore creative scene. Once a space where Singapore’s most important decisions were made, the former Parliamentary Chamber is the highlight of The Arts House, and is now a popular venue for musical performances, stage productions and conferences. Other venue options include a black box theatre, galleries, multi-purpose rooms, and a screening room, featuring a digital cinema projector and 7.1 Dolby surround sound. The different rooms available at the Art House makes it easier for hosts to pick a perfect venue regardless if it is a birthday party or a fashion show, The Art House is able to cater to those needs.

Chamber

Conference Hall

10 - 200
Description
Situated in the heart of The Arts House, the Chamber was the place where Members of the Singapore Parliament gathered to debate policies. The Chamber is furnished with customised furniture from London, complete with original upholstery from 1954. A castle motif from the coat of arms used during the time Singapore was a Crown Colony can still be seen on some seats in the main chamber. Today, the versatile space accommodates up to 200 people and is used for recitals, performances and conferences. With a central aisle, the intimate space also serves as a great venue for fashion shows and wedding events.

Blue Room

Event Space

10 - 120
Description
Originally blue, the Blue Room retains its moniker as a reminder of its rich history. It was previously where Members of Parliament would relax in between debate sessions, and where Singapore’s first Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew held discussions with his cabinet of ministers. Neoclassical architectural details are seen in the Corinthian columns, and long Palladian windows fill the room with natural light. This adaptable space is used for performances and corporate functions that range from press conferences, product launches to receptions. There is ample standing room for up to 120 people for cocktail events, 60 seated in a round table setting and 80 in a theatre style layout.

Living Room

Event Space

10 - 80
Description
The Living Room was a dynamic hive of activities where Singapore’s history was documented and fled. From 1955 to 1959, it was the general office of the Old Parliament House where administrators coordinated papers and reports for Parliamentary sessions. Later in 1959, after the formation of the government, the room was used for meetings of the People’s Action Party. This intimate and regal space is perfect for seminars, receptions, book launches, workshops as well as rehearsals.

Iconic building with great amenities

All my guests were impressed! We hosted a seminar with the stage and even though the venue is old, it was able to accommodate a lot of the different requirements we needed for the seminar.

Unique space for our solemnisation

The unfurnished ballroom Living Room made for an elegant setting because we had a lot of decorations inside with dry flowers.
