Celebrate National Day at Marina Bay Sands
Experience dining, shopping and revelry in the heart of the action
Singapore (2 August, 2012) – Marina Bay Sands looks forward once again to welcoming visitors for the third National Day celebration since its opening. A variety of special dining experiences and celebratory events are being planned as the integrated resort counts down to Singapore’s 47th birthday on 9 August.
As part of the festivities, all stores at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands will be open for business from 10am to 11pm. Guests and visitors to Marina Bay Sands can recite the National pledge at the Event Plaza in unison with spectators at the National Day parade, held at the Marina Bay Floating Platform. The Sands SkyPark offers an exceptional vantage point for those who wish to catch the fighter jets and state flag fly past, capped by the fireworks display.
From the waterfront dining restaurants that allow diners to enjoy the ground atmosphere around the Bay, to the birds-eye view accorded by restaurants located 200 meters above ground, Marina Bay Sands offers spectacular dining experiences for every imagination. Soak in the sizzling fireworks display on the top of the world at celebrity chef restaurant Sky on 57 and Ku De Ta, located on the highest point of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.
At Sky on 57, homegrown celebrity chef Justin Quek will be featuring special National Day dinner menus from one of the best vantage points in the city. Especially for this event, jazz sensation Jeremy Monteiro will perform at the outdoor terrace area of the restaurant, serenading diners as they enjoy stunning views of Gardens by the Bay, or the spectacular fireworks. Live telecast of the National Day Parade will be beamed on giant TV screens. The National Day Terrace Bar Set Menu, which includes a magnum of Veuve Clicquot champagne for $888++ per group (for a maximum of 5 guests), will be introduced just for this occasion. Inside the restaurant, the National Day Dinner Set Menu ($188++ per person) will feature inventive dishes with a delicious Singapore twist such as ‘Marine Parade’, a slow cooked Scottish salmon with laksa emulsion and ‘Singapore Pride’, a dish of Hokkien noodles with Maine lobster.
