Review

Occupying the topmost floor of SwissĂ´tel The Stamford, this slick space sits 70-odd storeys above the rest of Singapore. And with its floor-to-ceiling windows offering views of lights, skyscrapers and freeways, it has a hint of a Vegas feel about it. With live music every night, however, the place retains its Singaporean feel.

City Space forms part of a trio with Equinox restaurant and the New Asia club. London's Richard Gillam has been in residence for a while, as the drinks list - not to mention a luxury bar snack menu - shows.

The drinks list is molecularly led - but with options for purists and crowd-pleasers too. If you are on the trail of the Singapore Sling, we recommend trying the Straits Sling here, a refreshing Sling published in the early cocktail books and, Richard reckons, quite possibly the original of the Singapore Sling.

Or you can amuse yourself with inventive drinks based on tea-infused gin, fizzing with dry ice, glasses styled as tea cups, and much, much more.
