THE SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX is so much more than just cars. There’s the thrill of watching some of the world’s biggest musicians perform on the Padang Stage. This year’s line-up, which includes Muse, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gwen Stefani, and Swedish House Mafia, is sure to appeal to many music lovers (sorry, Cardi B fans). Then, there are the five-star dining experiences to tuck into. And let’s not forget all that partying after the race.
But what if you could enjoy all of that in one place?
Enter Twenty3. It’s the only destination on the Marina Bay Street Circuit that brings together everything you love about the Formula One race, with a cherry on top: a front row view of the finish line.
You’ll find it at Turn 23 (Twenty3’s namesake), which you can reach via an exclusive ferry service if you’re arriving from the Bayfront North Jetty. Come with an appetite: Twenty3 boasts a line-up of restaurants where international Michelin-starred chefs will be serving up their most celebrated dishes.
Expect a selection of contemporary Italian cuisine from chef Massimiliano Mascia of San Domenico, who will be making his culinary debut here. So too will chef Tiago Bonito, who is best known for his surprising interpretations of classic Portuguese recipes at Largo do Paço.
If you want a taste of the East, you’ll be in good hands with chef Takagi Kazuo. The Master of Kyoto Cuisine himself will whip up his signature dishes, which you can top off with yakitori skewers and sake at the restaurant’s izakaya.
For all else, head up to the Bay Terrace, Twenty3’s alfresco dining spot. London’s Burger & Lobster, Taverns Tea and Good Food Coffee and Bakery will be offering delectable light bites for you to enjoy on the rooftop, accompanied by DJ sets, live music and dance performances.
If you want a timeout from the action, look out for Twenty3’s speakeasy. The cosy watering hole, helmed by La Maison du Whisky, has a selection of 23 Scotch whiskies for you to choose from.
End the night on a high note at the Apex Lounge, another Twenty3 exclusive. The two-storey nightclub will keep the party going long after the races are done with electrifying DJ sets, aerial performances and award-winning desserts by Australian pâtissier, Philip Khoury.
The Singapore Grand Prix may be much more than cars, but Twenty3 won’t let you lose sight of the adrenaline-fuelled race for a second — not with its ideally-located outdoor viewing galleries, rooftop terraces and restaurants.
