Fancy sipping a glass of exquisite wine while revelling in dazzling panoramas of Singapore’s cityscape ? Rooftop bars literally take merry-making to a whole new level. Some have exclusive gastronomic experiences that tantalise the senses; others exude a unique feel.
Rooftop bars dot the many highrises of Singapore, but do you know which 5 are the best? We take a look at five impressive rooftop bars that have caught our eye, and what exactly makes them so special.
A Glimpse into Singapore’s 5 best rooftop bars
True to its french namesake, Vue offers pleasure-seekers magnificent views of Singapore’s skyline from the 19th floor of OUE Bayfront.
Stocked to the brim with 1,000 bottles of wine, expect yourself to find some of the most vintage bottles of wine to add a nice finishing touch to your dinner. Make sure to have a sip of Don Melchor 1990 by Viña Concha y Toro cabernet sauvignon during your visit, as Vue is the only bar in Singapore to carry this.
And it’s not just the wine or the view that impresses. With decadent delights like highly coveted Kokuou A5 Wagyu Beef on the menu, diners can expect a sumptuous selection of eats that span both popular Eastern and Western cuisines.
ADDRESS: OUE Bayfront, 50 Collyer Quay, Level 19, Singapore 049321
Overlooking the gold sands of Sentosa’s beaches, patrons at 1-V:U can revel in the sea breeze at one of Singapore’s most recognised al-fresco bars. Enjoy seafront panoramas from the top floor of The Outpost Hotel, and dip in the equally impressive rooftop pool while sipping away at a glass of tropical cocktail.
If you’re looking to hang out with the cool crowd, there’s also no better place to be than 1-V:U. The bar often hosts a long list of internationally acclaimed DJs and showcases impressive culinary artists and bar-side programmes too. If you want nothing short of a world-class party, this is the place to be.
ADDRESS: 10 Artillery Ave, #07-01, 099951

3. The Lighthouse
Another bar with an amazing view of Singapore’s cityscape, The lighthouse also enjoys the privilege of being perched on top of The Fullerton Hotel.
Just as mesmerising is the bar’s commitment to authentic Italian fare. An entrant in Singapore’s Michelin Guide and a recognised purveyor of fine Italian cuisine, patrons at The Lighthouse can look forward to gourmet courses made with some of the finest ingredients sourced directly from the provinces of Italy. We highly recommend their grilled beef tenderloin served with mashed potatoes, zucchini and onions.
ADDRESS: 1 Fullerton Square, Singapore 049178
4. Aqua Luna
Unlike other bars located conveniently in the Central Business District (CBD) area, Aqua Luna’s location in the CBD’s outskirts delivers a laid-back vibe that gives anyone a reason to visit in the hustle-bustle of working life.
Its most prominent feature is its cerulean 25 metres infinity pool that becomes one with the clear blue sky in the early afternoon. Perched on the 7th floor of Park Hotel Alexandra, savour
enjoy a tantalising glass of Singapore Sling while enjoying panoramas of the city. With a great view and soothing cocktails, this bar is sure to take away all your worries.
ADDRESS: Level 7, Park Hotel Alexandra, 323 Alexandra Road, 159972
5. Mr Stock
Revel in the lush greenery of Mr Stock while embarking on a restful stroll around its panoramic 360-degree circular platform with a glass of summer cocktail. Located on the 39th floor of the Andaz Hotel, the interior design of Mr Stock is inspired by the storks that build their nests atop trees.
Every cocktail on the menu is definitely worth a try, but we say give its signature Ginseng made of fresh grapefruit juice and rhubarb puree a shot. The perfect night-spot for a romantic date, patrons can enjoy an exquisite bottle of wine over a candlelit dinner in any of Mr Stock’s exotic teepee huts.
ADDRESS: 5 Fraser St, Level 39, Andaz 189354
