There’s something about kicking back with post-work drinks on a rooftop or waterfront bar. And better yet in an al fresco area with handsome views of the Downtown Core and some of Singapore’s most iconic attractions – whether the restored National Gallery Singapore or Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay.

Whatever sort of drinker you may be (the bourbon connoisseur, the bar-bites-and-booze imbiber, the vino snob), these waterfront bars will sort you for a night out in the Marina Bay area.  

Le Noir

Le Noir

Le Noir – French for ‘The Black’ – is one of those places you’d likely roll up to after a long day in your CBD-located, skyscraping office. Like many bars, expect live performances from local and international artists taking place hourly from 6.15pm through 11.15pm.

Far than the rowdiness you’d expect of a typical pub, Le Noir is fitted with a crisp sound system, and tastefully finished with touches of burnt gold. Beyond its extensive drinks menu (they’ve everything from beers, champagnes and cocktails to cold-pressed juices) are mains including pizzas and burgers. If you’re going in a group, try its Sharing Platters built for four to ten persons. 

Yardbird Southern Table & Bar


Fried chicken made the way of a 100-year-old recipe, dense cheddar waffles and spiced watermelon cubes to neutralise the palate: Yardbird captures the spirit of American comfort food, made all the better with one of its handcrafted drinks.

The restaurant proudly holds claim to owning Asia’s biggest collection of bourbons and American whiskeys, each spun on the head to suit even eclectic tastes.

The classic Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade is a dangerously addictive cocktail that borrows its zest and gentle spiciness from lemon, bitters and cardamom.


Dallas Cafe & Bar

Dallas Cafe & Bar

This bar-bistro needs no introduction. Dallas Cafe & Bar issues excellent mains, whether the hefty Wagyu Burger that's loaded with a juicy wagyu beef patty, bacon, swiss cheese and caramalised onion, or lighter sides such as Salt & Pepper Calamari with sweet chilli mayonnaise.

If you’re strictly here for drinks, though, its handcrafted cocktails are a doozy; the Traditional Irish Coffee is an addictive laced drink that hits the right spot with its mix of caffeine and Irish whiskey, while the quintessential Singapore Sling makes for a sweet, fruity segue into a relaxing evening. 

Bread Street Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay

Bread Street Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay

He’s hardly the most welcoming face in the kitchen – not if TV series Hell’s Kitchen is any indication – but Gordon Ramsay is a multi-Michelin starred master chef in his own right. The proof is in the pudding; or, more accurately, the Beef filet Wellington at Bread Street Kitchen that’s complemented by glazed carrots, seasonal greens, red wine jus and mash.

Come Tuesdays, it’s 50% off Endless Summer, Mango Spice 2.0, Memoire of Love and Breakfast Martini – the restaurant’s signature cocktail from 6 to 9pm.
