Slick and stylish, glitzy and glamourous, Marina Bay is Singapore's ground zero for luxury dining, leisure, and recreation. The Bay’s architectural inventions have redefined Singapore’s skyline for coming generations; its restaurants and bars breathe new life into the city after dark.
Fans of French cuisine, for instance, would do well to drop by the cozy 40-seater Jaan, a critically acclaimed restaurant at the Swissôtel The Stamford. As one of the tallest hotels in Southeast Asia, The Stamford is prime real estate for stunning panoramas of the city. It is home too to Equinox, a choice destination for modern European delicacies.
Resort-casino Marina Bay Sands holds its own with CÉ LA VI (formerly KU DE TA), a must for large groups raring for excellent Asian fusion served à la carte. There’s also Sky on 57 in the Sands, a multi-awarded restaurant duking out Franco-Asian specialties by Singapore’s top chef, Justin Quek.
LeVel 33, perched on top of the Marina Bay Financial Center, is a rooftop bar that bills itself as the “World’s Highest Urban Craft Brewery.” Closer to the water, bayside performance center the Esplanade offers Orgo Bar & Restaurant, a chic space serving unique cocktails made from fresh organic produce.
Tourists vying to be a part of Singapore’s iconic skyline can look to Indochine. Nestled on top of the Supertree at Gardens by the Bay, the unique dining experience comes with Indochinese and Western delicacies amid a panoramic view of the bay.
