Amidst a renewed nationwide dine-in ban, reservations platform Chope has partnered with Singapore bars and restaurants to launch the All New Feastival, a delivery drive to encourage one and all to rediscover offerings from your favourite haunts.
As the name suggests, everything available through this virtual festival taking place from July 31-Aug 15 is all new. This means every item (mostly available as bundles) is novel and exclusive to the platform.

“We decided to give our nation of food lovers a good reason to order in, by encouraging restaurants and bars to bring something new and unique – including dishes that have never been served before – to tables at home,” says organiser of All New Feastival, Ivy Woo.
Woo, who is also the managing director of integrated marketing agency Food News, adds that the recent third round of lockdowns has been especially daunting on bars and restaurants in Singapore, with many “on the brink of ceasing operations for good”.
The virtual festival is thus here to reinvigorate interest in stay-home dining and drinking, and hopes to alleviate some of the delivery fatigue experienced by consumers here by injecting some vibrancy to the scene, even as the Covid-19 crisis drags on.

Bars and restaurants taking part in the drive include recognisable names like Atlas, The Old Man, and Madame Fan, as well as newer venues such as Beats Bites & Cocktails and the newly opened Miss Vanda by Labyrinth.
Unlike the usual ala carte or set menus available directly or on other platforms, all offerings via All New Feastival are unique to the virtual event, and most are featured as experience bundles.
Head to Chope to see the actual menus. All New Feastival takes place from July 31-Aug 15.
