8 more rooftop bars in Singapore!

Hi again!

The last day we spended in Singapore we tried out 8 more rooftop bars. Beginning with Marina Bay Sands and FLIGHT at Sky on 57 the first two days, our requirements of the rooftop bars were quite high.

Lantern at Fullerton Bay Hotel:

We arrived at Lantern around 11 AM. The bar wasn’t open (opened 12 PM) so we decided to take a espresso some water and a orange juice. The bill landed on solid 30 Euro. Coffe and water was even more expensive then beer and wine at this place. But the view, the swimming pool and the nice furnitures made it all worth it. Lantern is a stunning rooftop bar in Singapore.

LeVeL33:

Our next stop was LeVeL33 located on the 33th floor with breathtaking views over Marina Bay Sands, the city skyline and the ocean. At this point we were very thirsty for some beer. And this was the perfect place for just that. The worlds highest brewery. So we took the beer tasting plattern. My favorite was as usual the lightest one, but I also liked the most dark wich had some tast of coffe and chocolate.

Hi-So at Hotel Sofitel So Singapore:

The most central located rooftop bar in Singapore. Right in the city center with mighty views among the scy scrapers. A luxurious rooftop bar with a nice swimming pool and comfy lounge furnitures. Here we just had a beer and a quick chit-chat with the bar crew.

Empire:

A nightclub and rooftop bar that a friend of a friend of ours run. Simple decor with amazing 360 degree views over all of Singapore. We were here in the afternoon so unfortenately we missed the great party that takes place here every friday and saturday. They also have one oyster restaurant and one fancy meat restaurant. Unfortenately we didn’t have time to try them out either. Just one beer and then of to the next rooftop bar.

1-Altitude:

One of the worlds and Singapores highest rooftop bar, 282 meters up. The 360 degree views from here are spectacular. Almost a little bit scary because of the hight. To get up here you have to pay a fee if your not on the guest list. The decor is stylish and all in white. A must to visit when in Singapore!

Me@Oue:

At Me@Oue we started to get a little bit hungry. We ordered some sushi, edemame beans and Peronis. Ok food but nothing more. The view and comfy furnitures was the best thing about this rooftop bar. The lights in Singapore is very cool when the darkness falls. To bad we only had the crapy iPhone camera to take pictures with.

Kinki Rooftop Bar:

A classic afterwork place with lot’s of guys in white shirts :). The location is right next to the financial area of Singapore. So exprect a lot of people coming here just around 7 PM. When we arrived there were a lot of people here, so make sure to be in time to get a nice seat. The prices here were a lot lower then their neighbor Lantern at Fullerton Bay Hotel.

Orgo Bar & Restaurant:

Our last rooftop bar in Singapore for this time. Sorry for the bad quality of the picture. Orgo Bar & Restaurant was a cozy rooftop on the 4th floor of a shopping mall. Despite the low altitude the views were very cool from here during night time. We rounded of the day in the same way as we started; with an orange juice, coffe and water. Quit expensive here to, but with a view to die for you forget the money you spend pretty fast.

This was all from our trip to Singapore. We had some amazing experiences with Marina Bay Sands, Sky on 57 and LeVeL33 as the three best if we have to choose.

FLIGHT at Sky on 57 and the meeting with Michael O’Shea!

On our third day in Singapore we where invited to Marina Bay Sands rooftop bar FLIGHT at Sky on 57. We got a personal invitation from the manager Michael O’Shea, so we decided to meet him up at the terrace. FLIGHT at Sky on 57 is a pretty new rooftop bar at Marina Bay Sands. The location is probably one of the best for a rooftop bar in whole Singapore. Amazing views in all directions. The terrace is decored with confy lounge furnitures, green trees, a DJ booth and a really cool bar. If you are lucky to time a sunset you will for sure have a some of the most beautiful views there is to see in Singapore.

At 6 PM we met Michael in the bar and we felt really welcomed right from the beginning. We sat down and talked about rooftop bars, cocktails and the work he have done for FLIGHT at Sky on 57. We also got the chance to try some of their special cocktails.  The French 57, a classic Singapore Sling and their own Singapore Sling. We loved them all, but if I have to choose one it will be the French 57 wich contains G’Vine gin, Yuzu Umeshu, acacia honey, lemon and Champagne. Yummie!

After the drinks we had an awesome dinner in the restaurant Sky on 57 around 8 PM. And right after the dinner we met Michael at the rooftop bar again. Here we ordered more cocktails to the amazing skyline views and the tones of the DJ. Michael stopped by our table several times and he told us a lot about Singapore, it’s history, nightlife, restaurants and much more. We also talked about how the rooftop guide started and  stuff like that. Michael was a super nice and funny guy and we couldn’t be more happy about the treatment we got. Service and hospitality at it’s best! And we will for sure be back in a near future.

Around 7 PM the Marina Bay Sands crew invited us to their luxurious  rooftop restaurant Sky on 57. The restaurant have an amazing 360-degree view over all of Singapore. And the decor was very modern and luxurious, but yet very cozy and harmonically. Here we got the chance to meet the famous chef Justin Quek ,his staff and the manager of Sky on 57 Elise Raffray.

The meeting with the master chef Justin Quek:

The master chef Justin Quek mixes French and Asian flavours in an awesome way. We ate some of the best food we’ve ever tasted. Before the dinner we were invited in to the kitchen were Justin wanted to make us some of his specialties and also introduce us to himself and his staff. Justin was a very humble and funny guy. A cool experience and it was funny to see all reactions from the crew when we tasted the specialties infront of their eyes. The dumpling was like an explosion of nice flavours in my mooth. I hope they could see that we loved it :).

The dinner at Sky on 57:

After the meeting with Justin, he decided to make us a special made nine course dinner with a diffrent wine to each dish. They even printed the menu for us as a memory. I can honestly say that some of the dishes we tasted was some of the best food I have ever had. Especially the dumplings (course 2) and the Wagyu Tri Tip (course 7). Everything was made with perfection and presented in a very nice way. This was a dinner we will never forget!

If the food was an unforgetable experience, so was the service from the guys that served us. Three words that comes to my mind are: elegant, nice and attentive. Everything we asked for they fixed. That’s what i call service! Even the manager Elise stopped by our table several times to see that everything was ok and also talk a little with us about The Rooftop Guide and our experience of Singapore.

To sum it up, it was a memorable dinner with consistently top quality of everything. For more info of Sky on 57, look here. Next blogpost will be about our meeting with the manager of the rooftop bar FLIGHT at Sky on 57, Michael O’Shea and the drinks, conversation and views we had. Stay tuned!

Marina Bay Sands rooftop in Singapore!

Hi again,

Next stop on our trip was Singapore – one of the world’s best city’s regarding rooftop bars. We choose to stay at the famous hotel Marina Bay Sands where they have the highest infinity pool in the whole world and also one of the coolest rooftops you can visit.

rooftop bars in Singapore
The infinity pool at Marina Bay Sands Skypark.

Our room was available already at 10 PM so we decided to head up to the Sky Park Pooldeck directly – wich is open from 6 AM until 11 PM. And the views that meet us where breathtaking. 360 degree views from the rooftop over Singapore and all it’s surroundings. We could even see all the way to Malaysia and Indonesia. The Skypark Pool deck is only available to the hotels guests, so there was no problem to find a good sun lounger in the front row.

The pool was not very crowded which was a big plus. Sometimes it felt like we had it for our selfs. We took some really cool pictures laying with our feets on the edge of the infinity pool with whole Singapore infront of our eyes. And the atmosphere was very relaxing with some nice tunes playing in the background all the time. After a couple of hours of swimming and walking around in the skypark we ordered some food and drinks from the rooftop bar menu. They had classic barbites such as burgers, sushi, club sandwich etc. I decided for the burger and it was pretty good.

The views from the other side of the rooftop were over the ocean with lots of cargo ships crusing around. It looked so cool. So we decided to take a dip in one of the jacuzzis that were available and just sat there and watched the surroundings. The best jacuzzi bath I have taken in my whole life.

The most amazing views were around 7:30 PM just before the sun set. The skyscrapers lights started to turn on and it was quite fantastic to see the transformation. So we decided to take a drink and just watch the whole city and sky turn into a colorful spectacle.

They had a controllaby roof to keep the rain of the seats and also some heaters for the colder days. All in all, we were happy with what we experienced. The sunny days, this placed is always packed, so be here in time to have a seat.

Cafe del Mar:

Among rooftop bars in Sydney, Cafe del Mar is one of the most exclusive ones. With a location in Darling Harbor and views over the whole area this is a perfect place for cocktails. We had some nice Espresso Martinis and a couple of Coronas. The seats here are very confy with big lounge furnitures to sink down in. Nice views, tasty cocktails, luxurious decor and confy seating is what you can expect from this rooftop bar in Sydney. Hopefully we’ll see the sun next time :).
