The next time you party at Zouk, Bang Bang, 1-altitude and Trace, reach for the bling new bubblies in town: Luc Belaire Brut and Luc Belaire rosé ($168 each). These sparkling wines in sleek black bottles, first launched in 2011, became a sensation after being seen in the hands of hip hop royalty like Jay Z and rick ross, the brand’s ambassador. The rosé from Provence, an area specialising in this style, is balanced and fruity, with trademark strawberry aromas, while the Brut is made from just Chardonnay from Burgundy area. Both are not too sweet and can be drunk on its own, well-chilled, or mixed into a cocktail.
We fell in love with The Ultimate Living Room–Kilo Lounge, with its bare concretethemed space, throw carpets and big plush sofas. Windows that span almost the entire circumference of the eighth floor enlarge the space, and provides a nice framing of the green and urban cityscape surrounding it. kick back and relax with cocktails like the Spicy Margarita ($20) that perks you right up, a Sure Thing ($19) comprising homemade vanilla infused vodka, cucumbers, mint and lime, and Japanese-fusion bar bites of addictively roasted, spicy edamame ($9), and wasabi tuna tartare served with wanton chips ($26). Take advantage of their happy hour (Tue-Fri 5.30-8pm) as well as 1-for-1 drinks and 25% off snacks every Thu 5.30pm-1am. #08-01, 66 kampong Bugis. Tel: 9830 6252
