Stepping in for the first time, this is the latest addition to the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. In replacement of the former Rise Lounge.
As I step into the lounge, the tall chairs drew my attention. It gives that very private space setting suitable for 4 persons. On top of which, the high headrest gives it a very cosy feel. While there are also side tables at each corner with a main coffee table in the centre. There is various type of lounge chairs and cosy sofar chairs littering the space around the lounge as well as tall chairs at the bar area.
Wine & Cheese Platter
The Lounge and Bar offer a mixture of coffee, tea, alcohol selections as well as small bites to pair with the drinks menu. As it was past dinner time, decide to go for red wine and pair it with a cheese platter (which is off the menu). The cheese platter – SGD$35.00; comes with 4 different cheese – Cheddar, Brie, Goat and Bru cheese; crackers, apple slices, raisins and walnuts.
The restaurant also serves truffle chips, lightly salted popcorn and assorted nuts with each order. For the afternoon hours, high tea is served with an interesting selection available.
The interior decor is classy yet simple, so are the table set up (picture above). The restaurant also serves cake by Waku Ghin – one of the celebrity restaurants in Marina Bay Sands.
Not to forget food can be a form of art too. Presenting the cheese on a cracker for Halloween.
