New Year’s Eve events are always filled with excitement and crowds. With so many choices, it can be tough to find the most desirable location for a party to watch the New Year’s Eve countdown. For a spectacular view and memorable experiences, follow our list of the best things to do on New Year’s Eve.

 

The Shoppes

 

New Year. New Look.

A new wardrobe is the most stylish way to signal a fresh start. With over 250 premium brands, including Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Zara, and Paul Smith, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands is a fashionista's dream come true. From high-end to the high street, this extraordinary 800,000 square foot retail destination has everything you need to strut to the New Year’s Eve countdown with a little bit of swagger and a whole lot of style.


SkyPark Observation Deck

 

Sky’s The Limit

One of the best vantage points for those looking for panoramic views of Singapore is the SkyPark Observation Deck. Located 57 storeys above the Marina Bay area, visitors can enjoy bird’s eye views of the sea and cityscape, and spot popular Singaporean landmarks such as Gardens by the Bay, the Esplanade, and Singapore Flyer.

 

Sampan Ride

 

Explore Uncharted Waters

Cruise towards a new year of calmer waters with a relaxing Sampan Ride. Drift effortlessly along The Shoppes’ canal in an elegantly crafted wooden boat as you admire the impressive displays on the shopfronts. As the Sampan winds through the mall, you'll come across the awe-inducing Rain Oculus. Suspended two storeys above, this eco-friendly installation comprises of a 22m-wide acrylic bowl which collects the rainwater that fills the canal. With some luck, you might experience the impressive hourly cascade in which over 22,000 litres of water are released per minute from the skylight.


Digital Light Canvas

 

Lighting the path ahead

To get an early start on the explosive lights and colours of a new year’s fireworks display, visit Digital Light Canvas for a mesmerizing display of visual splendour. Presented in collaboration with the Japanese collective teamLab, this digital play space invites kids and adults to engage with bright, visceral displays of animation that react to movement and interaction. Watch as shoals of fish, blooming flowers, and animated fireworks illuminate beneath and above via a magnificent 14-metre-tall hanging light sculpture.

A Night to Remember at a Rooftop Bar

No matter where you are in the city, New Year celebrations in Singapore are an astounding spectacle. To truly soak in the anticipation and atmosphere of the occasion, you’ll need to elevate things to another level. Here are some of our favourite rooftop bars and restaurants to have a drink, a New Year’s Eve dinner, and watch the fireworks display at Marina Bay.

 

Spago

 

Spago Bar & Lounge

Located on the rooftop of Marina Bay Sands is Spago Bar & Lounge. The creation of celebrated superstar chef Wolfgang Puck, this bar makes for a unique location to bring in the New Year. Along with the superb views of downtown Singapore, the menu fuses its Beverly Hills roots with contemporary Asian ingredients to create a selection of award-winning bites and drinks. The Pork Pot Sticker Dumplings (S$20++), Japanese Fried Chicken Karaage (S$19++), and USDA Prime Beef Sliders (S$21++) are a delicious way to start the evening.

As the New Year countdown nears, you’ll want to make sure that you have a glass of something in your hand. Spago Bar & Lounge has a variety of wines, beers, and champagne for toasting the moment. For something special, try one of the artisanal house cocktails (priced at S$27++). The Garden of Eden, Peace On Earth, and Open Sesame are just a few picks you might like from the colourful menu.

Spago Bar & Lounge is located at L57, Sands SkyPark, Hotel Tower 2.

 

CE LA VI

 

CÉ LA VI Skybar & Sky Lounge

Boasting spectacular 360-degree views of the city, CÉ LA VI is an alfresco rooftop bar dining and restaurant with a view high up amongst the clouds. With a history proudly rooted in local origins, CÉ LA VI’s design inspiration pays homage to the region’s creative legacy and signature cultural landmarks. The Skybar’s menu is an assortment of contemporary Asian favourites presented as delectable hot and cold tapas. The Grilled Wagyu Beef Bao (S$26++) is a yummy way to set off the night, or class things up with moreish Truffle Fries (S$12++) or the irresistible Crispy Prawn Tempura Roll (S$26++).

Once you’ve got your plates sorted, pair them with a house cocktail or two, each specially designed by the CÉ LA VI Head Mixologist. The Indonesian, Malay, and Chinese inspired Border Crossing #2 (S$25++) is a tangy, rum-infused brew with a deep, aromatic flavour. For a lighter, brighter taste, the lychee and orange liqueur flavours of the Happy Afternoon (S$25++) make it the beverage of choice for those looking to bring some zestiness to any year-end party.

CÉ LA VI SkyBar & Sky Lounge is located at L57, Sands SkyPark, Hotel Tower 3.

 

LAVO

 

LAVO Italian Restaurant & Rooftop Bar
