Iconic Singapore rooftop bar introduces the spirit of Apertivo for late afternoon and pre-dinner cocktails
Perched at the northern end of the rooftop SkyPark at Singapore’s iconic Marina Bar Sands hotel and casino, CE LA VI Singapore, with its spectacular panoramic views from the 200 metres high rooftop bar, restaurant and lounge club complex, continues to be a “must visit” destination for visitors and locals alike, setting a high standard for glamorous destination dining and sophisticated nightlife in Singapore. CE LA VI offers a variety of rooftop experiences including sophisticated contemporary dining at the air-conditioned Restaurant, relaxed drinks and bar bites on the open-air garden terrace of the stylish SkyBar, and the pulsating vibe of the famous Club Lounge.
Apertivo cocktails Taking inspiration from the quintessential Italian apertivo concept for late afternoon or pre-dinner drinks, Head Mixologist Knut Randhem has recently added a collection of apertivo-themed cocktails. Deploying his extensive experience with blending Asian ingredients and taste profiles into classic cocktail recipes, he has created well-balanced and flavorful interpretations of familiar apertivo drinks. Some of the highlights include his Cynar Spritz – which uses the herbal-infused Cynar Italian bittersweet liqueur in place of Aperol to create a refreshing drink with subtle savoury notes. And the classic Gin & Tonic gets an upgrade in the Barcelona G&T – adding a specialist craft gin – Geranium Gin from Denmark – and served Spanish-style with large ice chunks, zesty grapefruit, rosemary and juniper berries. Other Apertivo cocktails include Summer Cup – a twist on the classic Pimm’s Cup; Sangria; and the classic Aperol Spritz. All cocktails are priced at S$24++
The SkyBar and Club Lounge at CE LA VI Singapore are open daily from 12 pm until late.
