What was the name of the roundabout located at the junction of Tanglin Road, Napier Road and Grange Road? It had a beautiful fountain in the centre and pineapple shrubs planted around it. See photos below from the collection of the National Archives of Singapore.
What was the name of hotel next to it? Below are some hints courtesy of Peter Chan.
1. This hotel was built by Khoo Teck Puat and named after a country.
2. Then it was sold to a HK consortium and acquired a new name.
3. It had a basement disco and the interiors were plastered with red bricks. The first name of the disco was called THE PUB but later became known as THE LONDON SCENE.
4. The first band to perform every night was Heather and the Thunderbirds. My band, THE REFLECTIONS played there in 1972. We played as the second band.
