Looking to celebrate the end of a long day at work? Or perhaps you just want a crazy night out with friends. Bringing the dazzling Shanghai nightlife scene to Singapore shores is Bar Rouge, which makes its debut on the 71st floor of Swissôtel The Stamford. Overlooking the stunning Central Business District skyline, expect to dance the night away to emblematic tracks from the best DJs in the region, and also from the original Bar Rouge in China – right on top of the world.
Upon stepping in, you are welcome by Bar Rouge’s signature red lights and a custom-built Mode Audio sound system blaring out heart-thumping tunes, and we mean that in a good way. The sleek club ambience is designed by design firm NAÇO, who has previously worked with acclaimed brands such as Ibis, Tissot, and Club Med, so you can be sure the new spot is absolutely stunning.
Turn your eyes towards the striking cloud-shaped installation that almost appears to be floating above the extensive bar. Utilising state-of-the-art technology, watch as the lights take on a life of their own according to the beat of the music, bathing the stylish bar in an ecstatic pulsating glow. Further away from the music, there are some design surprises waiting in the bathrooms to keep you titillated. Don’t worry, we won’t spoil things for you.
An ever-changing programme means Bar Rouge’s already spectacular parties are turned up a notch every once in a while. Special themed nights each month will bring with them energising aerial performances up on raised cages; fenced up away from the crowd, the dancers are a phenomenal sight to behold. To add on, highly coveted guest DJs from the region and the original Bar Rouge will also make an appearance to spice up the music selection, so you’ll want to keep a lookout for that.
Hosting a modest 280-strong crowd each night doesn’t mean Bar Rouge doesn’t take care of their VIPs. Escape the crowd by sliding into the VIP mezzanine above to watch the happenings on the dance floor, and indulge in the various bottle services available. The lounge takes up to 50 people and can be booked for private and semi-private functions.
Cover charges at Bar Rouge vary from day to day: Tuesdays and Wednesdays are free for the whole session, while Thursday sees charges for the gents ($25, inclusive of one drink). Start the weekends early with free entry from 8pm on Friday and Saturday, while joining the club crowd after 10.30pm will cost you $25 with one drink for everyone – well, everyone above the minimum age of 21, that is. Sounds reasonable, right?
A night at this intimate Swissotel joint is intensely multi-sensory, bringing a new era of technology to augment the clubbing experience. Bar Rouge is definitely at the head of the pack, so head on over if you want to be among the cool kids on the block.
