THE DEFINITIVE HANGOUT for A-listers has arrived.
Occupying prime real estate in New York and Los Angeles, AVENUE is the late-night haunt for the likes of Kim Kardashian, Jay-Z, and Rihanna. Now, this US import is bringing its formula for fun to its first outfit in Southeast Asia.
You can thank the TAO group (the people behind buzzing nightclub Marquee and rooftop bar Lavo), for adding AVENUE to the group’s stronghold in Marina Bay Sands. The dark, romantic interiors are designed by ICRAVE, the New York-based architecture firm behind Marquee. You’ll want to sink into the plush custom banquettes, with your bottle of champagne chilling at the side. Dark wood slashed with metal mesh accents, softly lit by glowing glass pendants, set the mood for an intimate night.
There’s plenty of room at AVENUE for amusement on end, from mini bowling alley lanes to a game room fitted with a pool table and vintage arcade pinball machines. For drinks, the bar offers refreshment in the form of tasty East-meet-West cocktails. That dash of gula melaka in the classic gin-based Singapore Sling? A guaranteed sugar rush.
Music spans R&B and hip hop to open-format mash-ups that boom out of top-of-the-line Funktion One DJ consoles and sound systems. Keep an eye on AVENUE’s social calendar — resident DJs and popular guest artistes are brought in frequently as part of the fun formula.
