Ku De Ta
Heading to Singapore soon? You're in for a real treat - some of the best shopping, restaurants and - most of all - an incredible array of world class nightlife! Start the night right at one of the city's many spectacular roof top bars, where you can kick back on a lounge and enjoy a drink with that famous striking Singapore skyline spread out before you. Offering dazzling cityscape views, exotic cocktail menus and fashionable decor, these sky high bars are the perfect place to wind down after a non-stop day of sightseeing or a stylish spot to kick start your evening. Here's five favourites courtesy of YourSingapore:
Orgo is a sophisticated Singapore institution that brings together great food and cocktails with an environmental conscious. With stunning 360° views of Marina Bay, mixologist Tomoyuki Kitazoe brings the concept of "organic chemistry" to life in this smart little bar; starting with the best in organic ingredients for a menu of delicious food and cocktails. Try the Soursop and Calamansi Cocktail or be a bit adventurous and let your drink be your desert with a Roasted Apple Pie Cocktail. Orgo is at 8 Raffles Avenue, #04-01.
With the title of highest bar in Singapore, you know the view from 1-Altitude is going to be pretty spectacular. Situated 282 metres above the ground, offering unparalleled views of Singapore, 1-Altitude bar boasts a number of awards including the Time-Out Best New Rooftop Bar 2011 and the Singapore Prestige Brand Award 2010. We hear their Chocolate Sidecar is amazing! Find 1 -Altitude at 1 Raffles Place (Former OUB Centre).
Ku Dé Ta
This Bali institution has well and truly arrived in Singapore, and it's been taken to sky high levels of luxury at Marina Bay Sands! Situated 57-stories above the city, the Ku Dé Ta rooftop bar features a pool side bar, observation deck, restaurant and club lounge. With stunning 360° views of the city, Ku Dé Ta has fast become Singapore's after party "It" spot since opening in 2010. We recommend Ku Dé Ta for sunset cocktails - try Lady Be Mine, a sumptuous martini with lychee, rose water and apple juice.
Skypark at Marina Bay Sands North Tower, 1 Bayfront Avenue.
Often described as eccentric, playful and hip this split level bar was designed as a refuge, sanctuary and canvas for city workers, creative minds and budding artists alike. Sit back and relax on the gorgeous, plush lounges whilst taking in the chilled sounds and breathtaking views. Loof offers a delicious mix of international and quirky cocktails, such as the Gummiberry - a combination of Cointreau and Berry with Caramelised Meringue. Loof is at 331 North Bridge Road #03-07, Odeon Towers Extension Rooftop
Helipad boasts gorgeous views of Clarke Quay and the Singapore River. Guests can soak up the atmosphere and observe Singapore's busiest district go about its business whilst relaxing on the deck's oversized, luminous seats, which form the bar's signature H. The adventurous should try the Helipad Ice Tea - an original and lethal concoction of gin, vodka, rum, tequila, Blue Curacao and lime juice. Helipad is at 6 Eu Tong Sen Street.
Situated on top of the Fullerton Bay Hotel, Lantern features a 6 metre long lantern shaped bar, a 25 metre pool and panoramic views of the Singapore city skyline. A Latin American theme permeates the atmosphere, food, drinks and music. We highly recommend the Red Lantern cocktail - a sublime mix of Don Julio Tequila with watermelon, cucumber, lime and a splash of Cointreau. Lantern sits proud at 80 Collyer Quay.
