If you are planning for a romantic night with a loved one, one Michelin star restaurant VUE is Singapore’s first rooftop spritz bar that you should visit. A spritz is a wine-based cocktail made with bitter liqueurs and sparkling soda water. This drink is usually served over ice in a wine glass, martini glass or a lowball glass with an orange wedge for garnish.
Located atop OUE Bayfront on Collyer Quay, you will be met with a stunning view of Marina Bay while feasting on the interesting dishes. Instagram fans will have plenty of reasons to prepare their poses and phones. Don’t miss out on its specialties, which are prepared using Binchotan coal. Fun fact, Binchotan is hardwood charcoal produced from Holm oaks, which can be found in the forested hills of the Kii peninsula, Japan.
If its binchotan-grilled specialties are not your cup of tea, you can opt for its 6-course “Spring” themed omakase set, starting at $388. Whilst dining at VUE, immerse yourself in an epicurean adventure, while gazing at the cityscape of Marina Bay Sands. It is definitely not an experience to be missed!
