The beauty of a speakeasy-style bar is the thrill that comes with discovery. The search makes the gem one uncovers that much sweeter, and of all the hidden bars in Asia, Marina Bay Sands’ AVENUE Lounge is a treasure that excites one way after you’ve chanced upon its doors.
Sophistication saturates every corner of this stylish lounge-bar, evinced in the mood lighting, plush furnishings and sprawling bar. When you step into AVENUE, you’re transported away from the colourful chaos of Singapore into a world where your only pursuit is to eat, drink and be merry.
AVENUE offers plenty of opportunities for one to fulfil that pursuit. There is an extensive cocktail list with original creations parked alongside familiar classics, moreish bar bites prepared in the kitchen, and quality beats from the resident DJs that only get better as the night wears on. Above it all, the space is designed to keep you entertained, with a pool table, a pinball machine and a bowling alley that prove perfect means to relieve the weight of the day that came before.
For the office-weary, AVENUE is a haven to escape into for the weeknights. Wednesday pays homage to the ladies with complimentary prosecco and S$11 nett cocktails, as well as housepours from 9pm onwards, while Thursday delivers happy hour from 9pm to 11pm, where all house drinks, beers and cocktails are one-for-one. Beyond that, the club is open from Wednesday to Saturday till late, giving you more reason to stay.
The next time the 9 to 5 grind gets you hankering for an evening where you can decompress, do it in style, and do it at AVENUE.
