Lumo means light in Esperanto; an international auxiliary language created by Polish ophthalmologist Ludwig Leizer Zamenhof to unify people across the world. Light signifies creativity and positivity; values which are an extension of our own individual characters, and values which we aim to build a community upon.

We are a cocktail bar and restaurant located at the intersection of Carpenter Street and South Bridge Road, serving up hearty and comforting Modern European food, signature cocktails, wines and most importantly extra warm hospitality. At Lumo, there is something for everyone.


Tucked on the ground floor of a post-war art deco modern era shophouse, the exterior of Lumo looks like an unassuming speak-easy type restaurant cocktail bar. Once entered, the warm cosy modern interior is a refreshing juxtapose to the vintage facade of the building. The layout of Lumo is unique, offering 2 distinct spaces and experiences - the 40 seater bar front offers more fun and energy, and the 17 seater open kitchen is perfect for guests wanting a more intimate dining experience. Despite the distinct spaces, our guests can enjoy our food and drinks at both places.


Crafting drinks is a creative process and alcohol is known to playfully influence our emotions. Touching the very core of being human, our drinks are made passionately, carefully, to amplify your emotions and bring you the best journey for the night.
