Owner description: Affectionately known among locals as the "durian", Esplanade is one of the busiest arts centres in the world with about 3,000 performances presented yearly. Spot our prickly cladding in the middle of the central arts and cultural district, and take in the view from the Marina bay waterfront where our Outdoor Theatre is situated. Coming to Esplanade means that you're in for a complete lifestyle experience, from enjoying a night out at a show, to shopping and dining. And whether you're a first-timer, an ardent patron or fellow arts lover, you're most welcome here and we'll do our best to give you a great experience with the arts.

“Lovely view of the Harbour.”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Nice view during the day but the evening view with the skyline lights on is spectacular. Great view of the flyer, MBS, Fullerton and Merlion. Bands were playing on the Esplanade and Makansutra is right next door.

Reviewed June 17, 2013

Though the esplanade had been there for a long time it never fails to amaze me.The theater had been properly maintained,well cleaned.The acoustics give me goose bumps when there are very good singers or concerts.outside you could just relax and watch people go by.The atmosphere Is very relaxing

enjoyed our walk along the esplanade, listening to the bands playing and lots of family walking together and watching the laser lights from the Marina Bay Sands.

“Beautiful venue. Good music. Great prices. Another Singapore gem!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

This is one of my favorite hangout places in Singapore. Its got a great vibe; beautiful venue in a really nice location. A diverse and constantly rotating set of well-curated music concerts, talks, and festivals, many of which are free. There's a library, and a range of eateries, with lovely ambience.

I only wish they had more vegetarian options, but otherwise, GREAT!
