Spending a day in the resort is ideal – but when night creeps in, the Resort doesn’t sleep. At least, not that early. We check out what fun lurks around at dusk.
Sometimes it’s great to get away from the bustling city and settle for an evening under the stars. Forest’s (森) nature-themed restaurant offers contemporary Chinese cuisine by local celebrity chef Sam Leong. Located at the lobby of Equarius Hotel, the restaurant revolves around a serene garden setting and you can choose to dine either indoors or outdoors.
Guys, take note – to kick start a lovely evening with the lady, pick a 5-course dinner set ($118 per person) boasting seafood dishes with an in-house dessert creation to top it off. To complement the meal, enjoy a glass of Penfolds Chardonnay.
It’s also a great place for a friendly catch up session – complete with a glass of wine of course.
If the Forest is simply too tranquil for you and you’d prefer somewhere with a more laid-back atmosphere, try Asia’s largest Whisky bar. At Quaich (pronounced as “Quake”) you’ll have over 1,000 whiskies to choose from. Yes, a thousand. If strong liquor isn’t your, er, cup of tea, there are other signature cocktail blends. Located at the Waterfront, the 2-storey bar is warmly lit and cosy, great for a catch up session; or company events. Entertainment goes as far as a live jazz band, live sports channels and, get this – whisky blending, where you can blend your own take-home whisky concoction.
To strike a happy balance, snacks of bar-sized portions are served as well, the most popular being the Grilled Beef marinated in truffle oil, and bacon and egg canapés. Now that’s classy.
Hollywood After Party
See the theme park in a different light, literally. Grab your friends and experience a different atmosphere at Universal Studios Singapore. It’s a great alternative to the usual weekend night hangout spots. For $33, enter the park and get a free flow of beer and housepours. For non-drinkers, enter the park at $20 (with a complementary drink). There are also soft-drinks on sale at the food stalls along with snacks.
The shows and attractions may not be running, but look forward to performances by live bands such as Goodfellas and 53A (those of you who frequent Timbre will know who they are). Sit back and unwind to the music, dance the night away, or catch Barclays Premier League highlights.
Party starts at 7.30pm and ends at midnight. Remember – if you drink, DON’T drive!
Jazz Nights @ MEM
Chill with live jazz music led by Norleena Salim and band; we’ ve heard their musical stylings and they’re really top-notch. Indulge in barbecued seafood at the Fish & Crab Shack while you are at it. There is an a lá carte dinner menu specially created for Jazz Nights with quite the selection – from the Ribeye Steak (S$24) to Boston Lobster (S$42 for a whole lobster).
Happening at the Maritime Experiential Museum every Saturday night, admission is free. Whether you are with family or friends, this can be an alternative for a gathering or outing – to get away from crowds over the weekend. To complete your night, take a stroll outside Fish & Crab Shack – not just to aid the digestion of your dinner but also to enjoy the view of the nightlife of the city and the sea.
