Meant as an entrance plaza for visitors to the park, Hollywood Singapore boasts gorgeous architecture, mimicking the golden era of 1940's Hollywood, and a plethora of shops and dining for guests of all tastes and ages.

Hollywood USS is also home to one of the unique attractions of the park, the Pantages Theater. A fully functional, 1500 seat theater that can house even the most spectacular Broadway show, the Pantages is currently showing the Universal Studios original musical 'Monstrocity'.
Produced locally in Singapore, 'Monstrocity' brings together a cast of seven world class singers and dancers to bring to life all of Universal Studio's favourite vintage monsters, from Frankenstein and his bride to the blood sucking Count Dracula, all on one stage! As a Universal Studios Singapore original attraction, only guests at the new park can enjoy this spectacular new show. Oh, to be so lucky.
In addition to the fabulous Pantages, Hollywood USS also boasts three dining establishments. Mel's Diner is a classic 1950s American diner, delivering hearty fare such as burgers, fries, and thick and creamy milkshakes. The Celebrity Cafe offers lighter fare, serving bistro style food such as sandwiches, pies, and desserts for even the most ravenous sweet tooth. Finally, for those native Singaporeans looking for food that hits a bit closer to home, the Hollywood China Bistro offers traditional Cantonese dishes.
Not only is Hollywood Universal Studios Singapore a dining center in the park, it is also a shopping Mecca. Five stores line the lamp studded streets, including ware for shoppers of all tastes. For anyone who loved the park and wants a souvenir to remember it by, the Universal Studios store is a one stop shop, with collectibles from all seven zones of the park.
At Silver Screen Collectibles guests can purchase posters and memorabilia of their favorite celebrities, including animated screen siren Betty Boop (sorry Jessica Rabbit). For the rabid sweet tooth a stop at Superstar Candies is a must, but be sure to save your treats for after the wild coasters!
Any Shrek or Madagascar lovers must make a pit stop at the Star Characters store, which features gifts and souvenirs for fans of all the Dreamworks films. Finally, in a tribute to a classic Hollywood store, the Brown Derby is a hat shop shaped like, well, a hat! Inside visitors can distinguish themselves with anything from a dignified bowler to a crazy jester's hat.
Whether just arriving at Universal Studios Singapore or exiting after a whirlwind day, Hollywood USS makes a great place to shop, dine, play and relax.
