Remember the good ol’ days of exploring Funan DigitaLife Mall for IT-related deals and offers? After a three year hiatus and extensive renovation work, the new Funan Mall is now an experiential creative hub packed with exciting things to do and look out for! Here’s a guide to help you navigate through the retail, dining and noteworthy attractions and activities available.
Highlights of the new Funan Mall
1. Singapore’s first indoor cycling track
As one of the more unique additions to the new Funan Mall, Singapore’s first indoor cycling track was built to encourage the mall’s employees to cycle to work. In fact, the 200-metre indoor cycling track is an extension of the outdoor path along North Bridge road. While you won’t be able to zip about due to imposed speed limits, it’s certainly fun to leisurely cruise on your bike or PMD while following the motion-based LED light strip path!
Worried about working up a sweat? There are free showering facilities at the Bicycle Hub where you can park your ride and mend any damages with their repair and pump station.
2. Strengthen your grip with Climb Central
If you’re looking to push yourself and channel your inner Spiderman, Climb Central’s 15-metre rock wall will surely get your heart racing! Pegged as the largest rock climbing facility in CBD, there are more than enough lanes for you to climb freely. Put your arm and leg strength to the test as you scale incredible heights and attempt dynos to cross seemingly impossible gaps!
Looking to experience the thrills of bouldering and top rope climbing for yourself? A full day adult pass will set you back $32.

3. Funan Mall’s facility-packed rooftop
Featuring a captivating view of the CBD skyline and Marina Bay area, you’ll find no shortage of ways to kick back and relax after a long day atop the new Funan Mall! Take in the light breeze while sitting on one of the many lounge chairs and garden swings or arrange a get-together at the BBQ pits.
In a bid to advance the farm-to-table movement in Singapore, Edible Garden City has constructed an urban rooftop farm at the new Funan Mall. From freshly grown basil to butterfly pea flowers, these fresh ingredients are then used by restaurants like Noka to produce visually stunning and appetising dishes like Bara Chirashi and Sushi Moriwase.
4. Organise a game of football at The ARK
Nothing quite beats the experience of playing five-a-side futsal on a rooftop overlooking the civic district! Located right beside the Urban Farm, The Ark is the only futsal court in the CBD that brings after-work footy closer to you! Simply book the court online, head down to the new Funan Mall and follow the vending machine instructions to begin your session!
With hourly charges of $60 on weekdays and $100 on weekends, it’s a small price to pay for a game of futsal with a breathtaking view.

Snubbing preservatives and artificial colourings in favour of ingredients air-flown from Taiwan and 100% natural fresh milk, Milksha spares no expense in ensuring customers get the best bubble tea possible! It’s no wonder it was voted Taiwan’s leading bubble tea franchise by local undergraduates.
Their Azuki Matcha Milk and Fresh Taro Milk come highly recommended as the former gets the earthy and milky flavour balance perfect while the latter is prepared with imported taro from Dajia in Taiwan!

7. Golden Village’s new seating concepts

Ever wanted to experience GV Gold Class without burning a hole in your pocket? Gold Class Express scales down the pricing without compromising on the premium movie experience! You’ll still enjoy the same plush leatherette recliners with snacks in hand. The only difference is you pre-order your food and drinks instead of having someone wait on you.
For regular movie-goers looking for something additional, check out the Deluxe Plus hall. With leather seats that come with lumbar cushioning support and reclining backrests, you’ll never complain of back pain after a movie again! The seats even have USB ports so you can conveniently charge your phone while enjoying the show.
