Excellent place for any sort of gathering! The coordinators are easy to contact, and the venue itself is clean, well-equipped, and conducive. We had a baby birthday bash there, and the place held our party of 50 pax easily. Ying was great, she was there to give us a run down of the equipment and show us where to find anything we could possibly need. All our guests came back commenting on what a fantastic place it was! The games room is exactly what the kids needed, pool & foosball tables perfect for adults. We had space for a dessert table and catering as well. Will definitely come back to this place for future parties!

Great facilities and easy takeover. Additionally, left a red packet with significant amounts behind (baby shower event) but honest staff informed and we were able to retrieve it.

Our company hosted our event there last Thursday and the service and space provided by them was top notch! They were extremely accommodating about the timing when we had to arrive slightly earlier, and they allowed us to set up whilst the space was being cleaned. The equipments and facilities were enough to keep our 40 guests well entertained and everyone complimented it on being a great night and a great choice of venue! They were always quick to respond to any queries I had and I would definitely recommend their venue space to anyone looking to host a party or small event.

Happen was a wonderful event space and the service accorded by Zack was top notched. He ensured that everything from booking the event space, planning for the team building activity and event the F&B was smoothly done. The space itself is very inviting, homely and relaxed. Everyone enjoyed themselves, thanks again for allowing us to host our event there 🙂

Happen.SG is a great venue for hosting events and gatherings. I organized a gathering for 40 co-workers few days ago at Happen.SG and everyone truly enjoyed themselves at this nicely decorated place. The folks at Happen.SG had every single detail taken care of. We will certainly be back again! 👍🏻

A great place to hold a birthday party. There was a variety of facilities ranging from pool table to board games to entertain the guests. Ying (the POC) was very accomodating and helpful in setting up the place for the party.

This is my first experience on rental venue. Was apprehensive at first on the experience but to my surprise it was a wonderful one. Celebrated my daughter’s 18th birthday yesterday. The place was well set up and cleaned when I took over the place There were many selections of karaoke titles as well as tv games for the kids. Everyone from the youngest to the oldest is well entertained. LIli whom I first contacted with queries of the place is very patient and approachable, providing me with all the info I needed on the place. Mr Zach who was there to hand over the place to me is also very patient and kind. We all had fun and enjoyed the activities at the venue. Happen will definitely be a place that I will come back again for all future celebrations and gatherings.

Really cosy place to be! Had a gathering there once, and there were lots of entertainment facilities provided (karoake set, xbox, ps4, kinect, pool table). Everything was in great condition and definitely able to house more than my 20 guest. I am sure I will have more celebrations to be held there! Recommended definitely. 👍

Was at HAPPEN last week for our company's meeting. Our team was happy with the place and enjoyed themselves. The place provides a variety of entertainment under one roof ranging from KTV to darts to video games to even BEER PONG! Everyone has something that they can enjoy and have a good time! What you see is what you get. Ying (the person in charge) was accommodating in taking in our extra request too. They also have a huge fridge that allows you to ensure that you can have icy cold drinks at all times to entertain your guests. Our secret wishlist will be for them to have a mini freezer too so that we can have ice-cream feast to pamper overselves even more for our next visit ��� We already have guests who wants to check out the place again for their own events! ��� Recommended!

Would give this place 10/5 stars if I could. Definitely the most Happen-ing place to have meetings and events in SG. Convenient location, along with great facilities definitely equate to a good place for events ranging from gatherings to professional retreats. Had a mini-retreat here once and the owners were extremely hospitable to us. The highly under-rated thing about Happen .SG is their fridge and kitchenette, where we could keep our drinks chilled and prepare light finger food when we got peckish (who doesn't?)

An amazing place to hold an event/party. Really cozy and chill place for you and your friends to enjoy a night! Owners are really friendly and the price is reasonable! Definitely a place to book for your next party!

Had the venue for my 21st! Definitely ideal for parties especially with millennials - lots of activities can be organized to break the ice between different social groups. Recommended!

Great event space for parties or gatherings! The loft radiates warm and cozy vibes as it is very nicely decorated, with beautiful furniture and picturesque ornaments. It is also very well equipped with a range of entertainment devices, such as a karaoke machine, pool table and board games! My guests were thrilled and entertained throughout the day, which was important to me as the host! It is snuggly located at the corner along Dunlop Rd, right opposite from Jalan Besar MRT, which makes it accessible to my guests! The owner is also friendly and easy to work with, which made the overall booking process and experience, truly enjoyable. I have had an amazing party at Happen, and was truly impressed by how the space helped make the party such a success. (Birthday set up was done by moi; party decorations not included)

Awesome space for hosting events! The entertainments provided kept the kids busy and the adults can have their own chit chat session! Definitely going back to HAPPEN if we are hosting big groups again! Special thanks to the friendly hosts too! 🙂

If you are looking for a place for gathering, celebrating special occasions, or even corporate events, Happen is the answer! Spacious, equipped with facilities perfect for gatherings, and located at the heart of the city made it easily accessible. Plus, the coordinator Ying and Zack, helpful, thoughtful and accommodating in many aspects. I will definitely come back again and recommending this place to everyone looking for event venue. Keep it up team Happen and all the best!

We recently hosted a corporate event and everyone had great fun. Zack and Lili did everything from liaising with the bartenders and setting up the place, leaving us to focus on enjoying the event! Definitely recommended!

We had a company workshop at HAPPEN and it was a great experience. We love the interior design and facilities. The check in and check out is smooth, and HAPPEN folks are professional and nice!

a place you can hang out with your close friend without worrying the place closing at 2am or 3am. or either being asked for your last order. You can even singing out loud with no one care. You Can play the pool table for as many round as you want. you can play the PlayStation all night long. Check it out yourself.

Great place for huge gatherings at good location. A wide variety of facilities allows everyone have fun. The venue is spacious, comes with projector screen, pool table, pantry, toilet, foosball table, karaoke system and a cosy gaming room that comes Playstation, Xbox and old school arcade. All of us enjoyed ourselves. It would be even better if the air con were working perfectly that day.

It was an excellent place for party events. I organized my Rewards and Recognition Night there and everyone loves the place.

Happen.SG is an amazing venue and it's perfect for any and all events. My wife and I recently celebrated our wedding solemnization and reception at Happen.SG and it was a truly lovely and amazing space. We'll like to articulate some pros and cons to help you decide if you'll want to have your event at Happen.SG! (: Pros: (1) The event space is wonderfully decorated, with many sub-areas that have exciting and fun activities for people to engage you. You don't have to put in too much additional effort to design or decorate, but if you want to, there are quite a few walls that allow you to do your own design (as long as you use washi tape or blu-tac and protect the walls). There's also a large amphi-theatre area, so that you can do video screenings and sharing. (2) The bar area has a huge fridge, which allows you to store a lot a lot of drinks. Don't have to worry too much about not having cold drinks in that way. Happen.SG also provides an ice box, so you can keep your ice inside for the event. (3) Lili is a STAR. She's one of the most responsible, communicative, supportive and helpful staff members that we've ever had the privilege of interacting with. For example, we had booked the space from 5pm onwards for setting-up and had arranged for a wedding vendor to deliver things from 5pm. But the wedding vendor came early at 4.30pm, and left our wedding gifts at the door on the first floor. We texted Lili, and she rushed down early to the space and helped us move ALL the wedding gifts from the first floor to the second floor. She really goes above and beyond, and makes the process super amazing!!! (: Cons: (1) Some of our guests struggled to find parking in the area, and the many one-way roads in the Jalan Besar/Little India area was quite challenging for them. This is not Happen.SG's fault at all, but it's important if you are planning an event at Happen.SG to articulate the parking options clearly so that the process would be smoother. (2) Note that there's a small flight of stairs up to Happen.SG (it's on the second floor of the shophouse). For some elderly members and guests, this could be quite challenging. Again, this isn't Happen.SG's fault!! You just need to consider the demographic of your crowd! (: (3) (This is not really a con, please read on!) When we visited Happen.SG in the afternoon/early evening of a weekend, and the air-con in the space had not been turned on for a long time, the pool table room felt quite warm and had a strong food smell because it's directly above the kitchen of the roti prata shop downstairs. We were quite worried about this, and were scared that this would be a problem. HOWEVER, on our actual event day, this was not a problem AT ALL. With the air-con turned on for a long time, the room is quite cool and comfortable. So please do not let this deter you!! This concludes our review of Happen.SG!!! Truly one of the best event spaces in Singapore. 10/10 lah. If you're looking to find out more about the space, or want to ask how a wedding at Happen.SG could work, please feel free to PM me also. We loved Happen.SG!!!!

Great space for a birthday party! Amazing facilities, and conveniently located near Jalan Besar with good food all around. Love that they have billiard table, foosball, a clean fridge, Playstation - so we were kept occupied throughout our 12 hours booking.

An awesome venue with lots of wonderful facilities. Great for any type of event from gatherings to meetings. Zack and Ying were really friendly and helpful and responded to our queries really fast. My colleagues and I enjoyed ourselves! Will definitely recommend this place. 🙂
