Set the bar high with these al-fresco spots around Singapore that give off a perfect balance between romantic and sexy with the stylish surroundings and visually arresting atmosphere.
The Green Door
Perfect for before and after dinner drinks, The Green Door is a relaxing and laid-back spot where conversation can truly shine. It perfectly combines indoor and outdoor style, creating a cozy space albeit with a rustic edginess. The Green Door is tucked within the lush greens of Dempsey, and is a great spot for pizza, burgers, and especially barbecues as well.
Smoke and Mirrors
Nothing makes a statement like Smoke & Mirrors’ iconic setting at the rooftop of the National Gallery. With its sophisticated ambiance and sweeping unobstructed views of Marina Bay, you are guaranteed to impress your date and get them into a romantic mood. Top it off with a thoughtfully curated list of scrumptious dishes, well-designed cocktails, and an extensive wine list, and you can almost be sure that this first date won’t be your last.
Grilling and BBQ’s are most commonly associated with backyard get-togethers in the summertime. But at Cocobolo Poolside Bar & Grill, this is elevated into something sexy and luxurious. Enjoy your perfectly char-grilled steaks or seafood poolside, with the city’s skyline right in front of you. Plus points from your date if you come in the evening when you can admire the city lights. If you come on the weekend, you can also partake in the Barbecue Buffet, where you can have as much of their delicious food as you can take.
Let the ornate Middle Eastern inspired furnishings on top of the commanding city views at Fabrika intoxicate you for a night to remember. It may not be above all the other buildings in the central business district, but being surrounded by window lights actually has its own unique charm. Fabrika is the rooftop bar of Klapsons boutique hotel, and is every bit as hip. If the fun beats spun by the DJ and the wide selection of drinks don’t get you in a sexy mood, nothing will.
The Mad Men was designed to be a spot where you can unwind, let your hair down, and groove to the music. It is hip, casual, edgy, pulsating, and pierces every guest with its own unique brand of energy. With the CBD’s skyscrapers serving as the backdrop to live music and dancing, you will definitely feel the heat in this stylish but unassuming spot. The Mad Men also serves up a variety of dishes if you want to refuel, and a long list of drinks to keep the mood going.
If you are looking for a quiet kind of romance, take your date to the 7th floor of the Park Hotel Alexandra and enjoy the laid-back sophistication of Aqua Luna. First of all, it is right by the hotel’s infinity pool, allowing you to soak in the view while giving you the option to have a soak yourself. It boasts of its quiet and serene atmosphere, perfect for a first date where your goal is to gaze into each other’s eyes and share meaningful conversations.
