Whether it’s your first or 500th date (who’s counting?), we can’t think of a better way to spend Valentine’s Day than at some of the best rooftop bars in Singapore. Soak in the views with a tipple in hand, stunning views of the cityscape and your partner beside you to enjoy it all!
1. Graffiti Sky Bar – Carlton City Hotel Singapore
Avoiding the crowds on V-Day is almost near impossible, but you get to do just that at Graffiti Sky Bar. Located atop Carlton City Hotel, this is one of the best rooftop bars in Singapore that boasts views of the passing container ships at Keppel Harbour.
The bar provides an extensive selection of drinks for guests who like to keep things simple. Look forward to classic cocktails, spirits and beers. However, if you’re in the mood for something experimental, try their signature cocktails including Last Gossip and Chocopop Martini — a delicious vodka-based drink mixed with chocolate syrup! Graffiti Sky Bar is also an affordable rooftop bar in Singapore! Head there early to enjoy the Happy Hour from 3pm – 8pm daily.

Sun – Tues: 3pm – 12 midnight

2. The Screening Room
The Screening Room is for couples who love movies with a bit of heritage thrown in. This is one of the best rooftop bars in Singapore with a good view of Chinatown’s many traditional shophouses. The bar also overlooks the nearby temples, lit by the soft glow of lanterns come evening time.
What we love about The Screening Room is the rooftop bar’s boutique film theatre. Fans of arthouse films can look forward to independent and foreign films on screen. After the movie, head to the rooftop bar and sip on a cocktail as you discuss the movie with your partner.

If you and your date fall into the laid-back and chill category, then you’d enjoy Oxwell and Co. The four-storey shophouse boasts not just one, but two bars! Both bars are designed to look like English pubs, while the dining room serves up modern British food.
Once you’ve ahhed and oohed at their quirky spaces (including an Apothecary-inspired bar on the second floor), head up to their rooftop bar. There, you’ll be treated to a vast selection of in-house cocktails made with ingredients from their organic herb garden. The garden herbs in most of their menu items make Oxwell and Co one of the best rooftop bars in Singapore for a truly fresh Valentine’s Day experience!

The bar boasts quite a large indoor and outdoor bar area, so expect a crowd if you decide to head here on V-Day! Otherwise, make a party of it and invite a fellow couple to join in the celebrations. Enjoy the Mediterranean dishes with drinks at Happy Hour prices from 3pm till closing — making this one of the more affordable rooftop bars in Singapore as long as you come at the right time.

Rock to the beats with your partner at Kinki while taking in the panoramic view of the Marina Bay skyline.
A fan of Japanese cuisine? Be sure to fill your tummies on the sushi, maki rolls and donburis before getting your poison of choice. Choose from sake-influenced cocktails and wines and enjoy the night away!

Start off at their Tapas Bar on the ground floor and nibble on king prawn wantons tossed in chilli, or maple honey glazed char siu. Head up the rooftop bar and continue the night with their selection of beer, wine and whiskey. For a more clandestine time, request access to the Mona Lounge — Sum Yi Tai’s back-room cocktail bar. Apparently, you need a secret code to get into this one!

Cuddle in one of the 10 teepees and enjoy their signature cocktails including Rhubarb, Ruby and The Sling. If you and your partner prefer staying off alcohol-added calories, then try their Seedlip mocktails — Seedlip being the star spirit in all their non-alcoholic beverages.

If you can’t think of two separate places for dinner and drinks, you may actually not need to. Start the night at Three Buns and dig into Baby Huey — a Tasmanian Vintage beef patty layered with ketchup, cheese, pickles and spiced mayo. Or try their Impossible burgers, the plant-based meat burgers that have taken the culinary world by storm. Once full, head on up to the open-air rooftop bar and order their signature concoction Zombie #36 — a rum blend served in a wooden tumbler. Or settle on Royal Gin and Juice — a classic G&T with a zesty twist.
