When my friend said that we HAVE to go to 1-Altitude to have drinks, I was thinking "what on earth is with that name? And so...we'll be at the top of some tall building. But there won't be enough of a view when we're indoors right?"
Boy was I wrong. The view was AMAZING. It probably has to do with the fact that the bar has amazing altitude, exactly what the name must have been referring to. Having been at Equinox numerous times and enjoyed that great view, this new perspective was could easily beat the other, as for once we were outdoors and could see as many things as we want by walking one round around the whole rooftop. And you sure could see far, far away, due to the height of the building.
We went at around 6.30, wanting to catch the sunset. The sunset was astounding, with the sun slowly going down behind the Marina Bay area that was still undeveloped, and a little behind the PSA cranes. We took many great photos in that time, as the height of the building allowed us unparalleled, unblocked views you can't really get in Singapore's concrete jungle. Then as night fell, we relaxed under the (sadly) starless sky, enjoying the cool breezes that passed by. Of course they could do outdoors - there's no need for air-conditioning or fans at such a height, where wind speeds were just nice.
The drinks were of a good variety, and each of us girls managed to order something different, that we all enjoyed. My whiskey dry had just enough kick, and was of a good flavour, not too watered down.
All in all, a great experience, and I'll definitely be back again.
Especially since entrance is just SGD15 - its cheaper than MBS' Skygarden!
