The Dine In Movement is a collection of some of Singapore’s favourite restaurants and bars who have banded together to promote one another.
As the old adage goes, there’s strength in numbers. And in the case of Singapore’s F&B scene that’s been ravaged by coronavirus measures set in place by the government to combat the spread of COVID-19, some local F&B groups have joined forces in an attempt to survive these unprecedented times. Spearheaded by The Dandy Collection – the group behind eateries such as Summerlong, Neon Pigeon, and Fat Prince – have rallied other F&B and hospitality groups to create The Dine In Movement, an online platform where they can work together to drive more patrons to each other.
For this initiative The Dandy Collection has managed to rope in the likes of Unlisted Collection, The Lo & Behold Group, The Loco Group, among others, with over 42 F&B establishments listed on the site to date. According to The Dandy Collection, the goal of the website is to share resources and audiences in order to drive people to the site more often, thus driving more business to help save restaurants and jobs. In addition to each restaurant’s marketing efforts, the aim of The Dine In Movement is to become the marketing voice for the venues on site.
“The reason we decided to start The Dine In Movement is two-fold. Firstly, we wanted to create a single platform for diners to find options that fit their tastes as well as explore new venues. At the same time, we believe that a rising tide raises all ships. By banding together with like-minded operators like this, we are all able to amplify our voices to reach beyond our own customer base,” says Michael Goodman, Co-Founder of The Dandy Collection.
The Dine In Movement site is really nothing more than a collection of (admittedly great) local eateries that offer delivery services; there aren’t any special promotions or deals, for example. But it’s still a good way to browse and perhaps custom that well-known restaurant you’ve always wanted to visit but never have.

That a bunch of highly competitors in what is a cutthroat industry have come together in one singular purpose? Surely it’s a sign of our our desperate, coronavirus-plagued times.
