On 29 September 2019, in celebration of its Grand Opening, The Alkaff Mansion, Singapore’s most romantic and beautiful lifestyle F&B mansion, transforms itself. In true Basque style, the mansion will celebrate their opening with joyful abandon and open arms. Usually a multi-concept F&B destination that celebrates all things Basque in a lush tropical setting, for this one evening only – it’s the venue of a spectacular carnival, full of food, music and fun!
Entry to the mansion and grounds will be accessible to all from 4pm, with activities planned for every hour – all the way until night falls at 10pm. A simple coupon system ensures easy indulgence in food and drink; just how Sundays should work.
In the early evening from 4pm, a glorious bouncy castle and magical balloon-sculpting entertains the young and young-at-heart; then, as the sun sets, the grounds are set ablaze with the passion of flamenco musician and dancers.
Visitors can easily indulge their appetites: rather than fumble with cash and coins, food and drink can be easily acquired simply by purchasing a book of coupons from the coupon counter, then exchanging said coupons for anything that catches your fancy. And there’ll be plenty.
From 5pm, a spread of TXA’s pintxo favourites is set up indoors on level 1, as well as outdoor live stations where platters of paellas and grilled meats will be available. Level 2 of the mansion – usually housing UNA – is transformed into a haven of Spanish cheeses, Spanish wines and Basque txakoli as well as a range of savoury cold cuts including the justly famous Cinco Jotas iberico ham.
A four-piece Latin band serenades your meanderings from 8pm until the curtains fall at 10pm under a sky full of stars and a heart full of joy.

The Alkaff Mansion is the most romantic and beautiful lifestyle F&B mansion in Singapore. Housed within its more than a-century-old Tudor architecture and exquisite gardens are two extraordinary culinary concepts – TXA Pintxo Bar and UNA.
TXA recreates the vibrance of an authentic Basque pintxos bar. UNA celebrates Basque gastronomy in a romantic atmosphere. The Alkaff Mansion is advised by official curators and arbiters of Basque food and lifestyle; and is the venue for Basque-centred events and activities aimed at the general community. Beyond being a stunning multi-concept culinary destination, it is the embodiment of a culture and a people – and the centre of all things Basque in Singapore.
The Alkaff Mansion also houses the popular Wildseed Café, an outdoorsy hub that celebrates the lush green of the mansion through ambience, décor and menu.
