This is the world’s highest al fresco bar. Located up on the dizzying 63rd floor of One Raffles Place, it offers one of the best views in Singapore with a 360 vista. It’s an incredible sight, the whole of the city sprawling before you. People with vertigo might want to think twice before heading here for their evening drinks, only a clear barrier separates you from the stunning skyline. The best time to get there is definitely around 6.45pm when the sun is setting over the glittering city below. Remember there’s a cover charge of $20 with one drink if you get there after 6pm but there’s free access to the bar if you’ve already dined at Stellar restaurant on the floor below, which boasts brilliant views of its own. The space is seriously slick, contemporary and stylish while also acknowledging in its design that the view is key to this place’s appeals: everything else is secondary. Drinks are priced accordingly for a bar of this kind.
