View of the fireworks at Monti

The National Day Parade is back at the Marina Bay Floating Platform this year and that means we can head to the old vantage points we all know and love to catch the amazing firework displays. We’re going to list some of the best spots where you can enjoy the splendor in comfort on Aug 9, but if you’re looking for more unknown, hidden spots away from the crowds, we’ve got that covered as well. 

Smoke & Mirrors

The rooftop of the National Gallery offers an unobstructed viewpoint of the Marina Bay area and there’s no better perch than the terraces of cocktail bar Smoke & Mirrors where you can enjoy bites and tipples as you await for that firework moment. In celebration of Singapore’s 52nd birthday. Head Bartender Yugnes Susela has come up with two exclusive drinks – a modern reimagining of the Singapore Sling and a cocktail version of coffeeshop staple teh peng. Make sure to book in advance to get the best seats. A minimum of $50 per guest is required.
