From 14 to 16 September, Singapore will once more see the union of the world’s most revered Formula 1 drivers on the city circuit. While the best way to catch all the live action is from the Paddock Club, numerous venues have revved up to lure F1 fans through enticing accommodation packages, exclusive dining offers and over-the-top after-parties. We pick the best hotels and restaurants that offer the most gratifying, unobstructed views of the high-octane race.

Mandarin Oriental, Singapore

Mandarin Oriental Singapore isn’t just home to Morton’s – one of the best steakhouses in the city. The hotel also boasts a stunning portfolio of rooms and suites (from $1,050 per night) that offer unparalleled views of the F1 circuit. You won’t go wrong with the Marina Bay View and Grand Ocean View rooms and suites.

The newly renovated Premier Harbour View and Swiss Harbour View rooms of Swissotel The Stamford don’t play second fiddle either when it comes to offering magnificent panoramas of the race.

The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore

This is why The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore should be your choice of accommodation for the F1 weekend: it’s located in such close proximity to the tracks and will host one of the most grandiose after-parties, The Podium Lounge in its grand ballroom. But before putting your party shoes on, don’t miss the exclusive dining offerings at Cantonese restaurant Summer Pavilion, or if you’ve got the munchies, opt for some late night grub at Dom Pérignon Champagne Bar. From $630 per night, the ‘Race In Style’ room package, which is available from 10 to 17 September 2018, comprises an overnight accommodation in a Grand Marina room, daily buffet breakfast for two persons at Colony and a pair of complimentary tickets to The Podium Lounge.

Smoke & Mirrors

Smoke & Mirrors sits, quite possibly one of our favourite rooftop bars that coincidentally overlooks the Grandstand, granting you one of the most spectacular vistas of the race. Keep your eyes peeled for its alcohol menu, ranging from delectable, playful cocktails to high-end wines. Take the opportunity to head there for a sunset cocktail or two, you won’t just enjoy a panoramic view of the city, you’ll also beat the crowd.

1-Altitude

1-Altitude immediately springs to mind when we speak of the best rooftop bars in Singapore — for obvious reasons. It sits on the tallest building, and while it isn’t exactly a vantage point, it offers a complete view of the circuit 282m above the ground.
