Rooftop Oyster & Gin Bar, with the best views over Singapore river.
If you are looking for the best Singapore River views, Southbridge rooftop bar is the place to go. Located above the myriad of bars and restaurants along the very popular Boat Quay river walk, Southbridge is somewhat an oasis above it all.
From up here you can watch the river boats pass by, glanze all the way out to Marina Bay Sands, or turn your back on the river and watch the majestic skyline instead.
Self-named an Oyster Bar, we would like to call it an 'Oyster-Champagne-Cocktail Bar'. Up here you can indeed enjoy oysters fram all over the world, but also other tasty bar bites like different sliders and grilled sandwiches.
The drink menu is extensive, with a good set of bubblys and wines, along with an even more impressive array of crafted cocktails, from classics to signatures and from sweet ones to really spicy ones.
The Southbridge terrace has a beautiful setting, with soft lighting letting the surrounding city lights really show of. There are bar stools and tables all around the edge, a cool bar as dominating central point, and also a few really private tables around the back, away from the river.
Not a huge terrace, so make reservations or be here early to secure a good seat.
Southbridge is one of the most cosy and intimate Singapore rooftop bars available, and with a great and soft vibe and friendly service, it is a perfect place for some romantic cocktails, and close to a 'must visit' when in Singapore.
Tip: Find Southbridge by looking for the big white ballon above the bar. Just remember that the entrance is not on Boat Quay, but rather behind the building, from South Bridge Road, after 7-Eleven.
