Crowning the top of Swissôtel the Stamford, Asia’s highest dusk-to-dawn nightclub Bar Rouge elevates the New Year’s Eve experience with Electric Sky: 2018 New Year’s Eve Countdown Party. With its panoramic vistas of the iconic Singapore skyline, the stratospheric party is set to illuminate the night sky with electrifying extravagance.
Setting the stage for 2019, the sultry Bar Rouge venue will be decked out in spectacular sparkle. An interactive visual installation featuring a stunning silver arch fashioned out of prismatic balloons will greet partygoers as they enter the club. No New Year is complete without resolutions; guests are welcome to inscribe their helium hopes for 2019 on the installation as they look to brighter, new beginnings.

Pick from two restaurants such as the new Arbora or Dusk Restaurant & Bar, or the romantic Cable Car Sky Dining concept and choose from six festive menus. Let your hair down after dinner and revel in the festivities with your loved ones at the restaurants, such as close-up interactive magic and party games, while DJ Brian Lune spins the decks at Dusk Restaurant & Bar and live band Hubba Bubbas entertains the crowd at Arbora. These activities are family-friendly and complimentary for all diners who are celebrating New Year’s Eve with One Faber Group.
Be ready for the ultimate moment when Faber Peak launches its display of fireworks from the top of the Mount Faber Cable Car station at the stroke of midnight; in fact, keep your eyes peeled for two more firework displays from Sentosa Island! Revellers at Faber Peak will certainly appreciate their
vantage location at both restaurants as there is no other place in Singapore that offers such a magnificent view of three fireworks!
