Located in the heart of Georgetown, Higher Ground is occupying a space which was previously known as Georgetown Wines. Fun fact, the space was formerly a century-old horse stable. It now has a rustic, modern-industrial decor with a relaxing vibe. The red brick walls give it an even more aesthetic appeal, perfect for those Instagram OOTD snaps.
