Epicurean Market returns with a festive twist, after-party and preview of Mott 32

The annual foodie extravaganza at Marina Bay Sands is back for its sixth edition this year, this time, made more magical by being held close to the year-end festive period.

The Epicurean Market, taking place Dec 13-15 across three halls at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre, is shaking things up in more ways than one in 2019. The holiday theme sets the right mood to feast, drink and shop, while the format too, changes, with their hallmark Signature Series held alongside the food and wine show.

Kickstart the feasting on Dec 13 with in-restaurant specials launched across many of MBS’ top venues. Enjoy a five-course sake pairing dinner at newly-opened Koma, a cocktail and live music party at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, or even an intimate chef’s tasting dinner and cocktail reception at Spago (on Dec 12), among others.

Then head to the event proper from Dec 14-15, where over 50 food and drink booths, celebrity chef masterclasses and a holiday market awaits. First-time exhibitors at the event include Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer, Koma, and Origin + Bloom, as well as the highly-anticipated, soon-to-open in 2020, Mott 32. The famed Hong Kong restaurant will be offering its signature cocktails at a world-class bar helmed alongside 11 other top bars from MBS.

If you’re heading over on Dec 14, come ready to party into the wee hours, as Marquee will be playing host to an epic after-party perfect for dancing off those calories.

Epicurean Market 2019 takes place Dec 13-15 at Marina Bay Sands. Two-day early bird tickets for food and wine show out now at $42 till Nov 15 ($49 after). Signature Series events priced separately.
