expensive drinks in a pretty roof-top bar above the gorgeous fullerton bay hotel. here’s one for the weekend – I’m not much of a drinker, and pretty much teetotaler in all. I do like going to beautiful places though, and when it gets dark, that usually means a bar or what not. the rooftop bit isn’t a misnomer so much as misleading: it isn’t very high up, and barely looks over the river over to marina bay sands, but it’s gorgeous – draped fabric ceilings, a large seating area with well-spaced tables, and a relaxed vibe about it all.
it’s a quiet place – more of the post-work crowd sitting down to some really expensive drinks rather than the crotch-baring rambunctious bunch, and I like that. I also like the complimentary traditional battered peanuts they served here – you don’t get these very often.
I can’t vouch for the quality of their drinks so much – I had a juice that came tall and much larger than you’d expect at these places – but the menu didn’t strike me as being particularly impressive or extensive. my favourite cocktail in singapore is the spumoni at jigger and pony, which carries a rather more hipster vibe and can be credibly termed a specialty cocktail establishment; this place I think better serves as a convenient meet up with friends on a friday night.
I hope you guys have a great weekend!
p.s. this last photo was taken when we showed a visiting friend to ku dé ta, which has a more manic vibe (though better scenery) than this place. both places have rather small drinks menu to my estimation.
