ROOFTOP BARS! Lantern Bar at The Fullerton Bay Hotel, Singapore

June 16th, 2013 by retail design blog

The Lantern Bar is one of the newest- and best- rooftop bars in Singapore. Conceived by the architect as the highlight of The Fullerton Bay Hotel- the pool and bar certainly do not disappoint with specatacular panoramic views over the Singapore CBD skyline and Marina Bay precint.

The luxurious boutique hotel opened in July 2010 – and is adjacent to the historic Clifford Pier on the Marina Bay waterfront in central Singapore. The bar takes it’s name from the original Chinese description for Clifford Pier- “red lantern pier”- the pier was the landing point for immigrants (mostly ethnic Chinese) arriving in Singapore in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

The rooftop 25 metre pool is set in a lush tropical setting and the bar sits at the waterfront end of the pool. The main circular bar itself is a stunning focus- comprising polished bronzed metal “fins” set into 6 metre diameter “lantern” shaped structure. The main bar area is covered in canvas awnings, lighted with chandeliers, and cooled with overhead fans. The furnishings are faux rattan lounges, chairs and tables, and there are more “private” areas set along either side of the pool. Large candle-lit lanterns are placed throughout the decked area.

The Lantern Bar signature cocktails are themed on a Latin American / Carribean style- utilising freshly selected tropical fruits- all cocktails individually prepared at the bar. The wines are mostly from Latin America and Spain, plus a good selection of champagnes, beers and spirits.

The bar food menu comprises a selection of tapas, plus some grills, salads, fish and chips and steak sandwiches. A live Cuban band plays Latin tunes nightly from a small stage near the end of the pool. Lantern Bar has quickly become one of the most popular “after work” drinks venues in Singapore- so much so that bookings for tables are recommended.
