“Tourist Trap”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Sure, its the highest outdoor bar in the world (self proclaimed), but you're far better off spending your time and dollars at Ku-De-Ta in the Marina Bay Sands.

1-Altitude requires you to pay an entry fee which includes a very sub-standard drink and after waiting for an elevator you arrive to a very underwhelming outdoor bar. It feels thrown together and smells of a tourist trap, with the glass barriers so high that you can barely see over the edge.

Compared to Ku-De-Ta which is far more modern, has better drinks and just as good a view, 1-Altitude is a waste of time.

“360 View Over Singapore”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Great all round views, the highest al fresco bar in the world, drinks around £12.50 each and you need to pre-purchase a drink before you can go in so prices on par with Ku De Ta views are wider but both are good. Chilled music playing and probably worth getting there for dusk to get daylight and night view.

“Excellent view and atmosphere!”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

In my opinion, 1 Altitude is definitely better than Marina Bay Sands and Ku Dè Ta

From the roof tool Terrance you can enjoy a great and breathtaking view of all Singapore while listening to nice and chilled music and having a drink

I'd recommend to go there in the evening so that you can see light game from Marina Bay as well as all Singapore by night

Dressing code: smart casual
Cost: SGD25

“Tallest Building in Singapore”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

This building is at 1 Raffles St. and has a great view back to Marina Bay Sands. Great place to watch the sunset and laser light display from Marina Bay Sands.

“Best View of Hong Kong”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Earlier I thought, Marina Bay Sands' Skypark was high but after visiting 1-Altitude, I got the view of MBS like I took the shot from helicopter. You can see the Singapore Flyer and other landmark building also. Cost is SGD 25 which covers one drink and unlimited viewing. One of the best spots in Singapore
