Check out our suggestions for New Year's Eve!
With New Year’s Eve just happening around the corner, have you decided what you’re going to do during the New Year Celebration in Singapore? Is it a cosy dinner for two or partying with the in crowd? Or perhaps a beach party and the best views for fireworks? Or maybe you just want to get away for a bit and enjoy a short staycation?
No matter what you choose here are some suggestions where you can enjoy your New Year celebration in Singapore.
New Year celebration in Singapore: Quiet Dinners
Do the couple thing and head up Mount Faber on New Year’s Eve to enjoy a quiet dinner for two. Arbora hilltop restaurant will keep you and your bae entertained with magic shows and party games. There will also be a DJ and live band performance leading up to midnight when the fireworks begin. Snack platters range from $35++ to $55++ and a 4-course New Year’s Eve dinner will cost $98++ per person. But if you only want to head up there for the view, just pay $39++ cover charge, which will entitle you to two drinks.
If noisy parties are not your thing, another great place for a nice quiet dinner is at the National Gallery’s in-house restaurant called Aura. Their ala carte menu will run from 6 – 8 pm, but from 8:30 pm onwards, you will be served an impressive 5-course meal at $208. But the good news is all dinner guests automatically get free entry to the Sky Lounge for the fireworks later. Because if you only want to reserve tables there to do the countdown, a table of four would cost you $600 with your choice of champagne or spirits.
If the price is not an issue then why not usher in the new year with style on a luxury yacht with the salty sea breeze in your hair? Set sail on the Royal Albatross from Sentosa and enjoy a meal with scenic views of the Southern Islands before watching the fireworks at the stroke of midnight. Their dinner cruise starts from 5 – 7.30 pm and the Countdown Sail from 9.30 pm to 1 am.
New Year celebration in Singapore: Front row seats for fireworks
Get on the Celebration Cabin at Faber Peak! For $498++ per cabin six guests can enjoy this experience of a lifetime! Not only will you get to see the fireworks launched on Faber Peak itself, but you will also get a bird’s eye view (literally) of two more firework displays from Sentosa Island! You won’t be able to get such a magnificent view of all three fireworks in all of Singapore, guaranteed!
Marina Bay Singapore Countdown
Of course, if you want to join in with the city’s largest countdown then head down to Marina Bay for the spectacular laser and fireworks display to usher in the new year. But there would also be a lot of other activities running all night like carnivals and music performances before wrapping up 2018.
New Year’s Eve Countdown at Tanjong Beach Club
Siloso Beach Party Countdown 2019
Just like every beach party Siloso Beach has ever organised, expect a massive party with great music and lots of booze. And since it is counting down to the new year, expect fireworks and a foam zone, which is why you should go in your swimwear underneath.
Admission fee starts at $58 which is inclusive of one drink, but you can also go as a group of four for $185.60.
If you know Lulu’s parties then you know that they always go big or go home. Get ready for a night filled with stilt walkers, jugglers, drag queens and everything circus-y you can think of. The theme this year is Winter’s Garden so make sure you come dressed in white, all chic and glamorous. Buy your tickets early at $30 and pay $35 at the door before midnight. Anything after that would cost you $45 and don’t worry if you get peckish early into the morning. The kitchen will keep serving bar bites until 4 am.
Whether you’re hard partying in the heart of Singapore or just want to celebrate the new year elsewhere do consider staying at Ann Siang House. They have three themes for their rooms: The Active Studio, Culinary Studio and Well-being Suite. Check yourself in any of the room that fits your lifestyle and wake up to a new year. Rates start at $300++ SGD a night.
