Circular Road is shaping up to be a posh clubbing and dining hotspot for yuppies, trendy hipsters and families, slowly shaking off its reputation as a sleazy nightlife strip.

At least seven cool dining and bar concepts, including a whisky bar and a Vietnamese- French-inspired noodle bar, are expected to launch by November.

These new kids on the block are expected to give Circular Road the sophisticated vibe of other gentrified areas such as Jiak Chuan and Keong Saik roads or bar-hopper haven Club Street.

It is all part of lifestyle group Limited Edition Concepts' long-term plans to revitalise the area since it took over the master lease of 28 shophouse units in Circular Road last October, in an $8-million deal.
