Situation 1: Your significant other suddenly pops the question “eh, where are we going to watch the National Day Parade this year?” Situation 2: You’ve finally decided to emerge from your man cave to enjoy the parade beyond your usual vantage point from the sofa.
So instead of standing around and waiting for the yearly grand light show (good luck finding a spot), perch yourself on a peak that grants a panoramic view of the Marina Bay skyline whilst boozing and chomping like the champ you are.
The most legendary views are the views you get at LeVel33 – one of the the finest penthouse dining joints located at the Marina Bay Financial Centre. Their alfresco tables peer over the horizon and craft beer wankers (sorry not sorry) will love sipping beers from the Urban craft-brewery concept whilst overseeing the annual fireworks display.
LeVel33 is located at 8 Marina Blvd, #33 – 01, Singapore 018981.
57 stories off the ground, Lavo offers you a fine Italian-American dining experience (aka the cuisine of legends) amidst the city skyline from the heights of Marina Bay Sands. With a 180 degree oversight of the Marina Bay area, this is the highest vantage point for your luxurious national da — or night, rather.
Lavo is located at 10 Bayfront Ave, tower 1, Singapore 018956.
The refined yet lively grill sitting on the 70th floor of Swissôtel The Stamford, Skai Bar is perched high enough to enjoy the skyline while serving up quality Japanese produce. The legendary date night you’d brag about to your bros will include artisanal beef cuts, exquisite desserts and an iconic view of the fireworks display.
Skai Bar is located at 2 Stamford Road, level 70 Swissôtel The Stamford, Singapore 178882.
Fireworks leaves a trail of smoke in the night sky, the same way the aftermath of a night at Smoke & Mirrors will leave you feeling satisfied. Apart from a scenic view of Marina Bay, their dark and chill-out vibes will make watching the fireworks display even more exciting. Skip the cocktail menus though and go straight ahead to request a bespoke one. Now that stuff’s legendary.
Smoke & Mirrors is located at 1 St. Andrew’s Road, #06-01 National Gallery Singapore, 178957.
Swanky Mediterranean food on a National Day evening sounds simply swell compared to your usual routine of watching the parade on TV and crappy takeout food. Couple that with an iconic view at the Artemis Grill & Sky Bar, you’ll be watching the night’s fireworks while chowing down on wood-fired meat and seafood.
Artemis Grill & Sky Bar is located at 138 Market St, #40-01 CapitaGreen, Singapore 048946.
If you’re a simple man who just wants a sumptuous dinner and a great view, The Sampan will have you sold on a 4-course National Day dinner that has the vantage point to match. As the legend goes, our yearly fireworks display is best paired with Lemak Chilli Chicken Kueh Pie Tee or Lamb Shank Tulang Merah. What can you say? What a catch, Donnie.
The Sampan is located at 63 Boat Quay, Singapore 049851.
