When 1-Altitude at One Raffles Place opened in 2010, it was the highest rooftop bar in the world. Since then, it seems to have won over everyone, from young locals, high-rolling city workers, expats, as well as a good helping of tourists wanting to find out what all the fuss is about. Spread over three levels at Read More...

Five Izakaya Bar
Five Izakaya Bar – or just ‘Fives Bar’ get its name from their ludicrously cheap (for Singapore) all-day drinks deals. A clue to the price is in the name, with many glasses of draft beer or house wine starting at a measly S$5. With drinks this cheap, you’d expect surrounding to match – but you’d be Read More...

Kinki is one rooftop bar in Singapore that does things a bit differently. We couldn’t agree more with their marketing tag of ‘Japanese with urban attitude’; their menu is packed full of sushi and sashimi treats, whilst the ‘urban attitude’ vibe is created with some funky graffitied walls, haphazardously placed fairy lights and some rather rough and ready seating arrangements.
From that description it sounds more like one of the Singapore’s dodgier joints found in Geylang – but the whole decor and menu work inexplicably well. Kinki gets packed on the weekend (and girl’s night every Wednesday) with live bands playing against that stunning Marina Bay backdrop. Find it on top of Customs House at Collyer Quay, a short walk from Raffles Place MRT.
- Opening Hours: Lunch Mon - Fri 12:00 - 14:30, Evening Mon - Sat 18:00 - late (closed Sunday)

CE LA VI (formerly KU DE TA) Rooftop Bar
CE LA VI bar enjoys one of the best views in Singapore. Its location on the 57th floor of Marina Bay Sands offers uninterrupted views of the city and bay.

Lantern Bar at The Fullerton Bay Hotel
Possibly Singapore’s sexiest bar (we’re not talking sleazy) is Lantern Bar at The Fullerton Bay Hotel. So what has aroused us enough to come to this conclusion? Firstly, Lantern bar provides some lavish bed-style seating – perfect for couples (or just close friends), to sit back with a cocktail and enjoy the breathtaking views across the Marina Bay together. There’s also an equally gorgeous pool that is illuminated come dusk, and you can enjoy a drink or two in one of the cute secluded seating areas.
With beers starting from $12, cocktails from $20 and free entrance, this is one exclusive Singapore venue that isn’t geared purely towards the city’s high rollers (although you’ll find a fair share of them here too.)

Mansion Bay has closed.
Mansion Bay nightclub, more commonly referred to as just ‘Mansion’ among its young and wild local following, opened its doors in 2013 following the closure of Titanium, a long-running Thai disco that occupied the same building. The overriding factor setting Mansion Bay apart from the rest of its competition is that this Read More...

There’s no way of adequately describing Pangaea Club without succumbing to a whole host of superlatives. Located at the iconic Marina Bay Sands Resort, Pangaea is the most profitable, most expensive and probably the most ridiculous nightclub in Singapore. Instead of trying to paint a pretty picture for you, we’ll just give some of the facts: entrance is S$40, there are 20,000 light bulbs hanging from the ceiling, bottles of spirits are in the S$1,000 to $10,000 price range, VIP tables cost between S$2,000 and $15,000 for the night, and the signature cocktail, The Jewel of Pangaea, will set you back S$32,000. That’s not a typo.
To be fair, the champagne-based cocktail does come with bits of gold inside, a diamond chain to take home and personal delivery by some lovely hostesses.

SuperTree by IndoChine
By far the most unique rooftop bar in Singapore – and possibly the world – can be found on top of the highest SuperTree at the ever-popular Gardens by the Bay. SuperTree by IndoChine is a stylish bar/restaurant which serves a menu of Asian and western food, as well as beers, wines and cocktails. However, the real selling point of this one is its location. Even though the food, drinks and interior design do all impress, nothing draws away from the fact that you’re perched on top of a giant, manmade tree overlooking Singapore like a bird nesting in the canopies.

The Butter Factory
For one of Singapore’s most raucous nightclubs, look no further than The Butter Factory. After four successful years at the nearby Robertson Quay, The Butter Factory is now enjoying a new lease of life at its new, swankier Marina Bay location at One Fullerton. As with any popular Singapore nightclub, you’ll find an ample supply of Dom Perignon with sparklers stuffed in the top and expensive vodka from litre bottles being poured straight into mouths.
The Butter Factory’s underground hip-hop and house music policy helps all the hardcore party animals keep the place bouncing until the early hours. Find it near Raffles Place MRT, crawling distance from the Merlion, and dress to impress.

The Secret Mermaid
The Secret Mermaid, found in the Ocean Financial Centre, is a swanky restaurant/bar just a few minutes’ walk from Marina Bay. By night, this hidden little venue shows its true colours with a vast menu of innovative cocktails (as well as all the classics) being concocted using only small-batch, handcrafted spirits that you’ve probably never heard of. If the spirit you’re drinking takes your fancy, you can also buy a whole bottle to take home – making this into a miniature liquor store too.
Stop by earlier for some tasty snacks in what will feel more like a mini bistro or sophisticated cafe, with The Secret Mermaid serving up some delightful pub-style classics.
