Singapore - 1 Altitude

Singapore rooftop bar and restaurant 1 altitude

From the windows of our penthouse in Tokyo, I used to fall asleep while watching the skyscrapers heartbeat. Guess I'm a plain sucker for metropolis. That's the only logical explanation on why those signs of life in the concrete jungle have always amazed me so much, that I miss them a lot since they are no longer part of my daily environment. Sucker or not, if visiting a big city offers an opportunity to dine among the clouds, so why not give it a shot?

Our friends and local residents advised us to drop by 1-Altitude, an über cool and highest rooftop bar in Singapore - much much higher than the terrace of Marina Bay Sands that we just visited in the previous post - for some drinks after dinner. We checked the restaurant - because all these terraces come along fancy dining - but Stellar's description seemed a bit too stellar for our pocket.

There is one key lesson from Japan - learnt after my friend Natuski, an expert on the cool bars in town - that I will share with you at no charge: All fancy bars / rooftops / terraces / whatever always have a finger food menu, which can double as dinner for those of you who rather spend money on bags than on food. 1 Altitude bar does have a finger food menu as well, so here's the perfect plan:
- Make sure to arrive before 22 (after that you have to pay entrance)
- Secure a table with a nice sunset view
- Seat back, to enjoy drinks and bites

I strongly advise you to do this the last day, so you can recognize all the places you walked past from this very special angle.

We enjoyed our night in 1 Altitude very much. Not only did Enrique take gorgeous skyscraper pictures - I'm a sucker for night cityscapes as you have probably noticed in our Hong Kong and Tokyo stories - but we had a great time dancing to the same songs my lovely dance teacher picked for our 2015 lessons. Make sure you drop by if you are up for a night view which will be hard to forget.

Now with a drink, we are all set to check out the view.

I like this picture so much that I put it as cover for the Singapore guide.

And you thought Marina Bay Sands was high... Wait until you watch the city from here.
