Fireworks are one of the best ways to ring in 2019 – and let’s face it, in Singapore, big events like New Year’s Eve are probably the only time we get to see such a grand display of pyrotechnics. We’ve rounded up the 3 best places to catch New Year’s Eve fireworks in Singapore – parties included.
If you haven’t heard of Mr Stork, be sure to check out this new hidden gem on the 39th floor of the freshly opened Andaz Singapore. Not only does the bar offer 360-degree views of the fireworks set against Singapore’s dramatic downtown skyline, but the bar itself is also a sight to behold. Private teepees, loungers and trees that double up as privacy screens make this luxurious rooftop bar a great place to sit back and enjoy the festivities.
For its first New Year countdown party, Mr Stork is pulling out all the stops – drinks are, of course, free flow, as are the tapas. And you won’t be getting any of that fancy-schmancy appetiser that you can barely recognise, let alone pronounce: Mr Stork will be handing around modern takes of classic Singaporean street food dishes as delicious finger food to go with your drinks. Yum.
2. OverEasy Fullerton
OverEasy, the ever-aesthetic American diner, is perfectly primed for a great view of the fireworks show over Marina Bay. A live DJ will be on hand to round up the best hits of 2018 while the bar’s mixologists will be on duty all night long.
Wander about the spacious deck with your drink in hand, or if you want the best seats in the house, reserve one of the plush outdoor tables for a chill and undisturbed view of the fireworks away from the frenzy of the crowds.
Think of a rooftop bar in Singapore and 1-Altitude is likely the first to come to mind, and with good reason too: the iconic rooftop bar is virtually an institution in Singapore, and that neon-lit building is visible pretty much anywhere in central Singapore. This year’s New Year party at 1-Altitude comes with a bit of a sexy twist with Burluxe, a sexy, burlesque-themed party. Dress to your nines and break out your black masquerade masks, because there will be a real cabaret show lined up for the evening and other live entertainment acts planned.
A party at 1-Altitude isn’t complete without someone fantastic behind the decks, so partygoers will be glad to know that 1-Altitude’s army of resident DJs have teamed up with party band One Avenue so you can keep dancing way past midnight.
