Beach and waterfront bars in Singapore might not be as common as rooftop bars, but to be honest, we’re just grateful that we do have places to sit around with a drink in hand, casting our eyes lazily over the sea. And that’s reason enough to round up the best bars in Sentosa, where being a(n) (alcoholic) beach bum will quite possibly be the best life decision you ever make.
Glamorous and oh-so-sophisticated, WOOBAR is that hot setting in that hot music video with hot people living it up. Decked out in sleek custom-made furniture pieces and blessed with a gorgeous swimming pool (view), this smooth player of a bar will serve you anything ranging from classy bespoke cocktails to one-of-a-kind wines from halfway across the globe. Nobody said that you can’t be a beach bum and posh at the same time.
Tanjong Beach Club
A jack of all trades, but master of none? Not so. In the case of Tanjong Beach Club’s, the word “none” should be changed to “everything”. Restaurant, bar and lounge at the same time, this suave establishment has been a crowd-pleaser ever since its inception in 2010, dishing out delish Western grub and yummy cocktails, while bringing in hot DJ talents like Aeroplane and Gigamesh. All this has rightfully earned them a spot in CNN’s 2013 list of the world’s 50 best beach bars!
Tanjong Beach Club is located at 120 Tanjong Beach Walk, Singapore 098942, p. 9750 5323. Open Tues-Fri 11am-10pm. Sat-Sun 10pm-11pm.
Inspired by the old-world charm of Havana, Bob’s Bar is the resident bar of Capella Hotel and a Cuban booze house that dabbles in the world of rum. Like a nectar of the Gods, the sugarcane-based spirit is revered at this joint. There’s even a unique rum label specially-crafted for Bob’s Bar, hailing all the way from Barbados and conjured up by master rum blender Richard Seale. All you gotta do is request for Navegante and enjoy it in either an old-fashioned or Mojito.
Bob’s Bar is located at 1 The Knolls, Sentosa Island, Singapore 098297, p. 6591 5047. Open Daily 12pm-12am.
Sabio by the Sea
