Great View, Poor Service and Below Average Food
Sep 2021
You definitely come here for the view and the drinks. Service was slow and not great. Food was overpriced and underwhelming bar snacks (chips, quesidillas, pizza, nachos). Wouldn't really recommend for a meal.

Good drinks, food and friendly staff
Sep 2021 • Friends
The friendly and very hospitable staff, great cocktails and stories behind the cocktails, delish snacks made me write a review. The view is just a bonus!!! A good place to chill with friends and just destress. Shoutout to Katherine who was very friendly and patient when we asked her for some recommendations, we especially loved the padang drink, so good while looking out at the padang (literally!!!).

Unfriendly staff
Sep 2021
Drinks were ok, but the staff is not very friendly except for the manager. Not a place I would come back to very often.

Mediocre
Sep 2021
View of the city skyline is the main draw here. Don't expect good food or service here as they're mediocre at best. No safe entry check. We had to hunt for their staff to get our reservation and the table provided for outdoor seating was tiny and shaky. Ambience is good but too dark at times to know what we're having. Good for couples or drinkers but definitely not for family dine out.

Dear 95lernesty, we thank you for sharing your feedback for our improvement. It is with regret to hear that you did not have a good experience. We assure you that we do our checks in compliance with the Safe Management Measures and Safe Entry checks is done with our mobile device that is able to verify and identify if a guest is fully-vaccinated. We do apologise for the wait caused in showing you to your table. The weather was not good that day hence we were trying to move all the guests from the outdoor area into the tables in our lounge area. All in all, speed of service can be improved, and we hope we can do that when we are able to get the manpower we need. Once again, we thank you for your feedback and we hope to do better for you should you come by again.

Impressive drinks with wide open view of MBS.
Can't deny it was one of my favorite bars in Singapore.
Really "speakeasy" with family and friends.

Celebration for a birthday
Jul 2021
I wanted an outdoor seating. The bar did not get back to me for 1.5 days despite repeated calls, messaging and emails. By then it was too late to make another reservation and I would even incur 150 dollar cancellation charge!

The cocktails were great. The view was nice. Service was extremely slow.

Outside seating also had to request incessantly despite specially requesting for it since we were celebrating a friends birthday.

Maybe skip it for special occasions or on weekends. Ok for a nice drink on the weekday.

Dear ng182021, thank you for choosing to celebrate the birthday with us! Please accept our sincere apologies that our service did not satisfy your expectations. We would like to assure you that the credit card authorisation hold is a prerequisite to submit a reservation request and not a confirmation of booking, hence the amount is released after fulfilment of the booking and is not a charge to your card. Also, outdoor seatings as per our booking terms and conditions is not guaranteed. We understand the frustration caused and we've taken your thoughts to heart to make some internal changes to our booking process. We've been recently hit with a lean team hence the long response and wait, we hope to be able to address this while we close again for dine-in. Despite all this, thank you for giving us a chance and for sharing your feedback for our improvement.

Great view - that’s it
Jul 2021
You can tell the moment you walk in somewhere if it’s going to be a great experience or not. It was chaotic. One lady to organise a line of customers checking in. My wife got her drink quickly, mine took 30 minutes. It’s just not good enough.

Spectacular views with a menu to match
Jun 2021
The revamped cocktails menu is quite refreshing and the service is prompt and helpful. Great place to head on over after hours. Especially to wash down a great meal from the many restaurants around the area and in the National Gallery

Amazing view and drinks
Jun 2021
This is a great spot to go in the evening to enjoy views of the MBS while having a great drink. We had mocktails and they were absolutely delicious!
