Buzz: Singapore can now proudly claim to be home to the world’s highest urban craft brewery with this LeVeL33 opening up in the penthouse of the Marina Bay Financial Centre.

Décor: A mix of elegant dining settings, comfortable couches, classic barstools and chic al fresco seating, LeVeL33 caters for every occasion. The defining features of the establishment are a row of towering brewing tanks, two brewing kettles and a whole lot of shiny metal. All this is not just for show; all the beer at LeVeL33 is brewed onsite. Putting together an authentic brewpub at this height was no easy task, and 8,000 kg of brewing equipment had to be hoisted to its location with the help of a crane.

Food & Drinks: At the moment they’ve only got four beers, but they encompass an excellent range and stay true to European brewing traditions. The beers are available in 0.3 liter and 0.5 liter glasses. The 33.1 Blond Lager is light and refreshing, the 33.2 Pale Ale has pleasant hop bitterness, the 33.3 Stout is complex with a robust, roasted finish and the 33.4 House Porter, a blend of the Pale Ale and Stout, brings out the best elements of both brews. The Beer Dining menu here is brimming with gourmet, bite-sized delights like Back & Belly. 

Music: Soothing and discreet, it complements the chilled-out after-work vibe of the place.

Why you’ll be back: The beers of course, but beyond that, the view of the Singapore skyline from up here is simply stunning.
