Top 10 places to eat and drink during the Singapore Grand Prix

Locals share their favourite places for food and cocktails

1-Altitude

1-Altitude

‘For the Grand Prix, you’ll want a bar with a view. Try 1-Altitude on level 63 of One Raffles Place, or Ce La Vi at the top of Marina Bay Sands (the cocktails will wow you, as will the cityscapes).’

Tiong Bahru Bakery

Tiong Bahru Bakery

‘My favourite cafe in Singapore is Tiong Bahru Bakery, which serves lovely pastries and coffee. It’s in a cool, retro-style neighbourhood, with distinctive 1950s low-rise buildings.’

28 HongKong Street

28 HongKong Street

’28 HongKong Street is an award-winning, speakeasy-style bar with delicious cocktails. Try one of the special punches or a tipple that features American spirits and nods to prohibition.’

FOC Restaurant

FOC Restaurant

‘Also on HongKong Street, FOC Restaurant is a sophisticated tapas joint from acclaimed chef Nandu Jubany, who previously earned a Michelin star at his restaurant in Spain.’

Bochinche

Bochinche

’Amoy Street is really cool for bars and restaurants. Bochinche, an Argentinean canteen-style restaurant serves awesome brunch options – don’t miss the French toast with house-cooked ham and bacon ice-cream. Employees Only, sister to the famous NYC bar, offers up reliably impressive cocktails: try an EO Gimlet, made with Perry’s Tot Navy Strength gin and lime cordial, or a Ready Aim Fire: a muddle of mezcal, lime juice, honey-pineapple syrup and Hellfire Bitters. Nibble on some bone marrow poppers if you get peckish.’

Bar Stories

Bar Stories

‘My favourite cocktail bar is Bar Stories on Haji Lane, Singapore’s hipster street. Instead of a menu, the mixologists ask you what kind of flavours you like – they’re super creative. We asked for a bunch of fiery drinks one night because we just wanted to see stuff set on fire: they set each of our cocktails on fire in different ways. They’re cool staff, not pretentious, and they want to have fun with it, but the cocktails stand up to the hype – they’re excellent!’

Lucha Loco

Lucha Loco

’Just over in Duxton, Lucha Loco is a really fun Mexican place that serves delicious food and drinks. If you’ve got a soft spot for tequila and tacos, this is your place.’

Moosehead Kitchen-Bar

Moosehead Kitchen-Bar

’Moosehead Kitchen-Bar does some amazing food and drinks on Telok Ayer Street. It’s run by a  Greek-Aussie father-son team and has a relaxed vibe and a deceptively simple menu – from the grilled meats to the incredibly tasty vegetarian dishes, everything’s packed with flavour.’

Kinki

Kinki

‘There’s a nice little Japanese-style rooftop bar next to the Fullerton Bay Hotel called Kinki. Freshness is key here: expect succulent sushi and sashimi, alongside hot and cold mains, plus exotic drinks. There’s an extensive sake selection, but I love the peach blossom margarita – especially on a balmy Singaporean evening.’

The Fullerton Bay Hotel

The Fullerton Bay Hotel

’The Fullerton Bay Hotel’s roof is a great spot for Marina Bay views. Stake out seats at the Lantern Rooftop Bay bar and survey the city as you sip on kumquat and cardamom cocktails.’
