The Merry Lion welcomes world class acts, seasoned veterans and budding local newcomers alike, and currently hosts up to 40 stand-up comedians a week on its stage. It has as its resident host Scott Mitchell, who has lived in Singapore for the last 14 years.

The interior countertops in addition to the exterior wall cladding and table tops of The Merry Lion utilised the quartz surfaces Silestone® and the ultracompact surfaces Dekton® by Cosentino. Chosen for their unmatched properties of durability and versatility – Silestone® and Dekton® surfaces once again prove that they are the materials of choice, whatever the occasion. Natural quartz Silestone® countertops were used for the bar surfaces within the venue, chosen on the basis of being durable stain resistant and scratch resistant with impressive colour options. 

The bar tops were constructed using Silestone® in Marina Stellar Polished, a vivid dark blue colour with reflective details; and combined with Blanco Maple Suede - to create a balanced look that simultaneously added a dash of vibrancy and cheer to the place. Dekton® surfaces are renowned for their resistance to ultraviolet rays, colour stability and impact resistance, and therefore make the perfect choice to use in the venue’s outdoor areas. Dekton® in Aura15 Veiny Marble was specially chosen for the terrace, to add a spark of drama, visual interest and elegance to the environment. Please see Annex A for the Case Study details of Cosentino’s collaboration with The Merry Lion Comedy Cafe.

Says Mr Ross Cameron, Area Director Asia of Cosentino: “We are very pleased to be collaborating with The Merry Lion Comedy Café & Club, Singapore’s first dedicated comedy venue, to provide its countertops and exteriors. Our Silestone® and Dekton® surfaces possess the qualities that meet the precise needs of venues like The Merry Lion – they are exceptionally durable, resistant to scratches and impact, and aesthetically beautiful to look at. At a venue like The Merry Lion where visitors are often in high spirits and having a rollicking good time from the comedy experience, using materials that are versatile, extremely durable and require little maintenance is crucial, and Silestone® and Dekton® ultracompact surfaces fit the bill perfectly.”
