Perched on top of Equinox complex at Swissotel the Stamford, City Space is a chic and elegant lounge bar where you can get a nice cocktail after work. It has a magnificent view of the Marina Bay area, making it one of the best spots to watch sunset in Singapore.
Besides the classic cocktails like mojito ($20) and cosmopolitan ($22), City Space also has their signature creations like ‘chocolate in still life’ ($22), ‘bubble tea’ ($22), and ‘mangaroma’ ($25). If you are not a fan of cocktail, they also have a range of wine, sake, shochu, and spirits available on the menu.
I was pleasantly surprised when the ‘mangaroma’ was served. Cold ice was placed in a tin to create a dramatic entrance for the drink. There’s only one word to describe it: wow.
Equally fanciful was the ‘bubble tea’. The drink is a mixture of gin, fresh grapefruit juice, and cranberry; and the staff did something to create a pretty bubbling effect which lasted for quite a long time.
With a great view, good cocktails, and superb atmosphere, City Space at Swissotel The Stamford is definitely one of the best bars in Singapore.
