A Toast to Great Views: Rooftop Bars in Singapore

A Toast to Great Views: Rooftop Bars in Singapore
Singapore has a gorgeous city skyline and no trip is complete without a drink or two at rooftop bars with a view. Here are four popular bars, from tallest to shortest, with gorgeous views of the city skyline. The views and experiences are really different, so you may want to check out all four of them if time and budget are not constraints.

1-Altitude Gallery Rooftop Bar

This rooftop bar rests 282 metres above sea level, making it the tallest alfresco bar in the world! It has a decidedly more “clubby” atmosphere than the other bars mentioned in this article and if you’re not a regular clubber, the velvet rope/bouncers in black suits concept can be a wee bit intimidating. The cover charge is $30 before 9 p.m. and $35 after 9, which includes one drink. You have to give your drink order to the cashier (trying to think of a polite way to say “door bitch”) and there are only a couple of choices of drinks with the entrance fee. The drinks are very basic and not that great, but you’re really paying for the view.

Pros: The 360-degree view of Singapore! It’s so tall that you’ll feel like you’re closer to the moon than to the skyscrapers below. The railings are pretty low (chest high for a tall guy) so your views are not blocked in any way. That may be a con for those who have a fear of heights but I applaud them for even going up there in the first place! Get there early enough for the sunset because the views will be spectacular.

Cons: Prices are steep ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
