For just S$30, Slowbytes offers a 90-minute escape filled with musical indulgence. Over 500 vinyl records await, spanning genres from smooth jazz to electrifying rock and soulful R&B. Feeling peckish? Sip on endless free-flow coffee (espresso, americano, choco au lait – you name it!). Tea lovers can find solace in fragrant jasmine and green tea.

Unlike its pricier counterpart, Slow Boat (Singapore's first vinyl listening cafe), Slowbytes offers a wallet-friendly alternative. Whether you're seeking a solo retreat, a romantic date, or a catch-up with friends, the warm ambience – think plush sofas, soft lighting, and calming tunes – sets the perfect scene for relaxation.
