STUDENT HACKS, EP.2 : Top 10 Rooftop Bars to Visit when in Singapore

Forget Viper – here in singapore, we like to celebrate in style! 

10. ME @ QUE

This is a SUPER EXPENSIVE but SUPER LUXURIOUS bar and restaurant. The drinks are amazing and the view is even better!! The best time to go, is on Tuesdays when they do deals on Martini’s and on Ladies Night (naturally).

9. HI-SO AT HOTEL SOFITEL

I’ve been to this bar a frequent amount of times and I have to say it has the best atmosphere! Typically, there are people sitting or swimming in the water;  there’s good music playing, and food is available.  However, the only times I visited the hotel was for the student pool parties held here by (student party organisers) One Big Family;  and although the rooftop is beautiful with a fun atmosphere, the view isn’t that great. Also drinks are quite expensive at $14 per drink or $10 for Champagne on ladies night.

8. STELLAR AT 1-ALTITUDE

The view at 1-Altitude is EVERYTHING! It’s breathtaking, especially in the evening at sunset! However, it’s often quite busy and I found the drinks a little pricy – even on Ladies Night! I would say you only need to go to 1-Altiude once.

7. INDOCHINES’ SUPERTREE BAR & RESTAURANT

This is is the only bar on the list I’ve yet to visit, but I plan to very shortly! From what I’ve heard, it’s definitely worthy of 7th on the list! The bar offers 1 for 1 on house pours during weekdays.  Also, it’s placed near the bay, you can have a wee glass of wine, or a bite to eat, against with Singapore as your backdrop!

6. KINKI ROOFTOP BAR

At number 6, we have the colourful graffiti-slicked bay front Japanese restaurant and bar.  The view of Bayfront is by far once of my favourite sights in Singapore! The bar serves quirky Japanese food which is super delicious, and along with the view, makes for a great evening

5.  CÉ LA VI

View of Singapore from Ce La Vie

Located on top Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Ce la Vi has a small bar with a spectacular view. If this list went on view alone, it would be at number 1! However, although the bar has a great view, it’s very pricy! The best days to go, for girls (sorry boys), are Wednesday nights. Where ladies get to skip the cover charge and also get a free drink!

4.  LOOF 

FIVE, SIX,  SEVEN : the price of house pours at 5pm, 6pm, and 7pm! This place has a great vibe – especially on a breezy Singaporean evening! It’s a cheap and chill venue for a couple drinks. Since it’s near office buildings you’ll often find young professionals, in suits,  enjoying a post work cocktail. Although Loof doesn’t have much of a view, it more than makes up for it in it’s drinks and cheerful atmosphere.

3. THE LANTERN AT THE FULLERTON BAY HOTEL

Bayfront view at The Lantern

If you get the chance, you should definitely visit The Lantern at least once during your Exchange. On weekdays the bar offers happy hour deals; so you can enjoy the great view at a great price! From great drinks to an amazing city view, The Lantern has it all! The Lanterns’ rooftop bar and pool comes with a panoramic views of the Marina Bay waterfront and the world-famous Singapore skyline. Could anyone ask for more!

2. NEW ASIA BAR

Located on the 71st level of, Swissôtel The Stamford, the New Asia has the most beautiful panoramic view  of the city! Additionally, on Wednesdays (LADIES NIGHT!) women get five FREE drinks! This is definetly a fun place – especially for a girls night out!
