Last week, I attended the grand opening of OverTime, a new watering hole at Dempsey Hill together with a group of friendly bloggers and members of the media.
OverTime has five outlets in Malaysia, with three more to be launched soon. They currently have two outlets in Singapore – one in Dempsey Hill and the other in Holland Village.
It is targeted at after-hour working crowd as a place for relaxation and enjoyment. One of the key item on their menu is the Starker Beer, a Double Gold Medal Winner in the Asia Beer Awards 2010 under the “Wheat Beer” and “Pilsner” categories.
Taiwanese supermodel and actress, Lin Chi-ling (林志玲) graced the red carpet for the grand opening and was the star attraction for the night.
When she brushed pass me within just a shoulder width apart, it suddenly became clear to me why so many men have fallen under her charm. Graceful, sweet and with a body-to-die-for, she epitomises all the qualities of the perfect Asian beauty.
I quickly grabbed a few shots of Lin Chi-ling before heading off home, satisfied. Some of the bloggers stayed till the end of the event to get a picture taken with Lin Chi-ling. You can check out Jerome’s and Yong Wei’s respective blog entries for closer shots of the star.
To officiate the launch of OverTime at Dempsey Hil, Lin Chi-ling and Alan Loh, Head of Entertainment and Marketing of OverTime Headquarters, served the very first pint of the Starker Beer in the traditional German way – by hammering a tab into the barrel.
The night followed on with more entertainment. Guests partied the night away as they raised their steins and grooved to the ‘live’ performance of familiar tunes by local independent band, The Repeats, enjoyed free-flo of Starker Beer and sampling the various cuisines available from the OverTime Menu.

OverTime is one of the few very entertainment outlets in Singapore to offer Starker Beer, the Double Gold Medal Winner in the Asia Beer Awards 2010 under the “Wheat Beer” and “Pilsner” categories. Formulated with German expertise and technology in Malaysia, Starker Beer is freshly brewed and imported to OverTime Singapore from the brewery on a daily basis. This ensures that customers at OverTime get to enjoy only top-quality, and optimum freshness of the beer.
In addition, the OverTime outlet has a quality and innovative menu including 33 varieties of fusion skewers and a wide selection of other delights, ranging from western and local, mild to spicy, and even sweet to savory to tease one’s palates. Besides the scrumptious food, OverTime also offers a wide range of cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks, concocted by the restaurant’s very own mixologists.
OverTime takes on a rustic yet contemporary facade, with a touch of cosy lodge setting. Designed with three concepts of ambience, the entertainment outlet features an indoor bar-seating style, a private VIP lounge as well as a garden-inspired, relaxing alfresco area, thoughtful enough to cater to different needs. In addition, right at the centre of the outlet sits a stage that supports the congregation of Singapore’s home-grown music talents, and is the platform for local music showcase.
By combining an inviting atmosphere, good beer, menu variety, parking convenience and not forgetting a clad of friendly waiters who reach out to one’s every need, OverTime is the perfect place to wind down and pump one’s spirits after work.
Derived from a German word that means ‘stronger’, Starker literally revives and old world style of beer drinking, offering a strong, unrivalled taste of truly fresh beer that many beer connoisseurs have missed for generations.
Traditionally brewed from malted barley and wheat, the German-style fresh beer has a Malty-sweet taste with fruity hints, and blends delicately with the herbal aroma of the traditional German hops. When left unfiltered and unpasteurised, it gives way to a full-bodied, clean and crisp after-taste that smoothes all the way through to take down the toughest thirst.
Brewed for a shelf-life of only 7 days and served straight from the keg, Starker is best consumed at 3°Celsius for your maximum pleasure. Beer so cool and taste so revitalising, let the ‘fresh’ experience begin right away.
