A year of hard work equates to a day of worthy indulgence. Here are our top picks on Where to Eat, Drink & Usher in the New Year!
Start off your new year with new heights at Spago, situated at the 57th floor of Marina Bay Sands Tower 2. Diners can enjoy a 3-course dinner at the Californian restaurant, which includes signatures such as Holland Milk-Fed Veal Chop (pictured) and Pan Seared Red Snapper “Laksa”. Afterwards, if you’re in the mood for booze, head to the Terrace for some drinks. All dinner guests can enter the Terrace for free. Don’t forget to stay sober for the spectacular fireworks display.
