For the sun, sand, sea and tipples
|Part of our Nightlife Guide 2018.|
Sentosa really isn’t that far when you come to think of it; yes it may be an island of its own but it’s really accessible to get to some of the drinking spots there. If you hate the sun, even better; most of the places listed here open till’ late for you to unravel under the starry night. If heading to the island is still too much of a hassle, why not check out the first rooftop bar in Harbourfront instead.
Bringing a slice of old Havana to Capella Singapore, this semi-alfresco bar is a quieter place to watch the sunset in Sentosa with lots of open space and lounge chairs. Their Havana Nights (every Friday) are a great way to kick off a weekend, and they also stock a rum exclusive to the hotel—Navegante from Barbados. G/F Capella Singapore, 1 The Knolls, 6591-5047.
Coastes beach bar offers rustic charm and a casual, laid-back vibe where sunbeds and deck chairs flow right to the water’s edge. This breezy venue serves up premium beers, house pour spirits and hearty grub. Coastes is perfect for that idyllic island getaway. #01-05 50 Siloso Beach Walk.
The second outlet of Nandu Jubany’s FOC is a restaurant and bar-lounge (with a pool to boot) inspired by the beach culture of Barcelona. The wide- ranging sharing menu has a good mix of cold and hot tapas, as well as some grilled items and Spanish rice. The original cocktails are intriguing too, like the Ibiza martini with passion fruit and ginger. 110 Tanjong Beach Walk, 6100-1102.
The rooftop of Bay Hotel Singapore is put to good use by this cocktail bar featuring affordable drinks and bar bites to accompany your evenings lounging in its plush seats. Propeller offers unobstructed views of nearby Keppel Harbour and Sentosa, and has a drinks menu with a focus on cocktails and wine. R/F Bay Hotel Singapore, 50 Telok Blangah Rd., 6818-6023.
Sentosa’s sexiest beach club has got the full package: beautiful people, a plunge pool, an airy indoor dining room, cabanas by the sand, beer pong tables, a bumping party calendar, high-end fare (like the barbecued octopus salad) and an original cocktail list— we like the gin-based Resting Peach Face. 120 Tanjong Beach Walk, 6270-1355.
This stylized lounge bar has a bespoke cocktail and snack selection, champagnes, premium spirits, dozens of wines from around the world and a spinning resident DJ. Try the Bacon, Fashionable (bak-kwa-infused bourbon, maple syrup and bitters). W Singapore - Sentosa Cove, 21 Ocean Way, 6808-7258.
