Best Restaurants to Catch the Fireworks

If you’re choosing to stay in town during this long National Day weekend, what other way to celebrate our our nation’s birthday than to rejoice in the actual celebrations? Of course, we don’t mean simply to catch the National Day Parade. Make yourself a reservation at one of these restaurants and enjoy the anticipated fireworks display with a glass of champagne in hand! Here are our top picks.

1. Boathouse Restaurant

Despite its location right in the heart of Marina Bay, the Boathouse Restaurant offers unparalleled views of the action, minus the noise. The restaurant, with its colonial facade, is quaint and intimate, as if worlds away from what is going on outside. You’ll be delighted to know that the food doesn’t cost a bomb here as well — three-course meals start from S$58, and the restaurant also has a great selection of a-la-carte dishes, notably the fish.

2. Catalunya

Situated at the Fullerton Pavilion, the Catalunya is the equivalent of front-row seats across the many restaurant options that you may be considering. Take in the parade from the restaurant’s 360-degree panoramic view while savouring the restaurant’s contemporary Spanish cuisine, which also takes inspiration from its Asian location. Obviously no stranger to National Day parties (e.g. last year the restaurant bar’s DJ spun to the parachute display of the Red Lions!), you can be sure that it’ll be a night to remember!

3. 1-Altitude

We always believe that you’ve got to go for the best (or in this case, the top), and that’s why 1-Altitude ranks high on our list for its position as the highest point in Singapore! Those familiar with the party scene in Singapore will know all about 1-Altitude’s reputation for cool parties. The joint’s also offering an attractive National Day package for its customers — cover charge to the bar is S$48/pax (including 3 drinks) from 6pm onwards, and a five-course meal at the 1-Altitude’s restaurant, Stellar, is from S$148/pax.
