Singapore a global, multicultural city. Combine its towering skyscrapers, spectacular skyline, and vibrant nightlife, and what do you get? Numerous high-end rooftop restaurants and bars, which offer views of the city that are equally breathtaking in daylight or lit up by the city’s colourful lights at night. Here we explore the best rooftop restaurants Singapore has to offer.
The Rabbit Stash
From its location at the top floor of the Wangz Hotel, the view from The Rabbit Stash is quite amazing, overlooking Chinatown on one side and Tiong Bahru on the other. The cuisine served is an international fusion, imbued with Singaporean flavours. The menu, which changes according to seasonal local ingredients, follows the chef’s philosophy of ENSOPHI: Exotic, Nostalgia, Soil, Ocean, Pristine, Heritage, and Impression. Regardless of what your dish contains, it is sure to be a delightful surprise as you enjoy the spectacular view.

Ce La Vi Singapore
One of Singapore’s most famous high-end rooftop bars, Ce La Vi is situated on the roof of the Marina Bay Sands hotel. The garden-terrace style decor gives a relaxing, classy atmosphere as you lunch with friends and family, or share an intimate, romantic dinner. Afterwards, recline on the comfortable sofas with a glass of the bar’s exotically flavoured cocktails in hand, over the city’s glittering heart.

Just like its location of Singapore’s Ocean Financial Centre, the decor at Zafferano, located on the financial building’s top floor, is chic and modern. This Italian restaurant offers a view from the other side of the Marina Bay, towards the iconic buildings of the Marina Bay Sands. The indoor restaurant, which has glass paneled walls that allow you to look over the bay, serves authentic Italian cuisine. From the relaxing outdoor terrace, you have a breathtaking view of Singapore’s skyline while enjoying one of Zafferano’s classic cocktails.

Lighthouse Restaurant and Rooftop Bar
This Italian restaurant, at the top of the Fullerton Hotel, gives a classy atmosphere with its elegant decor and delicious Italian cuisine. Its bar is situated on the open-air terrace, where you can enjoy a view of the Marina Bay and the flickering lights of the city over the water. While the Fullerton Bay hotel is not a skyscraper like the Marina Bay Sands, its position at the waterfront gives a new perspective to the Marina Bay skyline.
Address: Fullerton Hotel 8/F, 1 Fullerton Square, Singapore, +65 6877 8933
From its position at the top floor of the Marina Bay Financial Centre Tower, LeVeL 33 is the highest craft brewery in the world. While the European cuisine is delicious, it’s their freshly brewed craft beers that are the main attraction of the establishment, other than the view overlooking the Marina Bay. Try the Blond Lager for something light and smooth, or the Stout for stronger and more malty taste. Most of their indoor seating is located near the windows, but get a table on the outdoor patio for an unobstructed view of Singapore’s iconic skyline.
