When 1-Altitude at One Raffles Place opened in 2010, it was the highest rooftop bar in the world. Since then, it seems to have won over everyone, from young locals, high-rolling city workers, expats, as well as a good helping of tourists wanting to find out what all the fuss is about. Spread over three levels at the top of Singapore’s highest skyscraper, you’ll find an alfresco dining area (complete with trees), a series of swanky bars, sumptuous lounge areas and a dance floor that usually fills up late on Friday and Saturday nights. You’ll have to part with S$30 just to get inside (free for ladies on Wednesday), but with a view this good it’s definitely worth it.
Mansion Bay nightclub, more commonly referred to as just ‘Mansion’ among its young and wild local following, opened its doors in 2013 following the closure of Titanium, a long-running Thai disco that occupied the same building. The overriding factor setting Mansion Bay apart from the rest of its competition is that this club is a stand-alone venue – unlike many of the others in the area that just rent out floor space within a high-rise hotel or office building.
