Slightly over-rated tourist attraction? We don’t think so. First-timers will love this outdoor eerie affording arguably the best sweeping 360 degree views of Singapore, from the 57th floor of Marina Bay Sands. And the same goes for regulars too. Part of the magic are the views and partly it’s the ambience created by the sky-high experience and stoked by the music and dance floor of the Club Lounge as the evening rolls on. Of course exploration of the cocktail list is a major part, too, although it’s not the best or the most inventive. Majoring on the classics such as Singapore Sling (mixed with Tanqueray), a Paloma (with Jose Cuervo) or Mojito (with Havana Club 3yo), there’s also bottled or craft beer and a workable list of wines including Yalumba, Cloudy Bay and Domaine Ott.
For food, Bao by Ce la Vi (introduced in August 2020) is a major plus, offering plenty of great flavours from tempura sea bass to chicken keraage or truffle wagyu beef. Don’t miss their rather moreish fries which will help soak up the alcohol.
It’s a good night out and value for money when you consider it will save you the entrance price on a visit to the Marina Bay Sands observation deck.
