MARINA BAY SANDS - Ce La Vi is the quintessential Singapore hotspot perched high atop the SkyPark Observation Deck on the 57th floor of Marina Bay Sands and offering unrivalled views of the bay and the city skyline. At this sleek resto, bar and lounge the decor is chic, the Modern Asian cuisine is fresh and innovative, and the atmosphere is amped up when DJs from Singapore and abroad light up the decks.
Why you should come here:
This is one of the best spots in the city to take out of towners, as well as a swish spot to sip on an afterwork cocktail, dig into sophisticated shared plates, and dance the night away whilst gazing out at the glittering lights of Singapore in all its glory. They also have tons of special events going on with guest DJs spinning everything from hip hop to house, ladies’ nights with fab prizes, and pumped up parties for holidays and even a few ‘just because’ occasions.
What we love:
The views here simply can’t be beat, especially from the al fresco SkyBar where you can sit back with a signature Asian inspired bevvie and let the breezes and beats wash over you. If the weather’s not great, the dining room inside is also pretty sweet and the menu features tempting shared plates like freshly shucked oysters, and sushi and sashimi. If you feel like something more substantial, try the Angus Beef Striploin with chorizo potatoes, goma spinach and anchovy butter or the Lemongrass Chicken with eggplant, zucchini, kaffir lime and kicky green chilli sauce.
Keep in mind that there is a dress code in play here, so leave the shorts, swimwear, and singlets at home and go for something a little more classy. Sundays are a bit more relaxed, but it’s still best to keep your attire casual chic. There is also a minimum spend for dinner of $80++ per person, which is not so difficult to hit especially when there are a few drinks involved.
Hey LAAADIES… every Wednesday you can skip the cover charge at the Club Lounge and enjoy a free premium pour on the house for their super popular ladies’ nights. They’ve also been known to hand out swish prizes to a few lucky ladies that have included free spa passes, Furla bags and magnums of champagne.
Minimum spend of $80++ per person for dinner. Cocktails start at $24.
