Where to eat, drink, and party at this NYE
Tuesday, 11 Dec 2012
We’re all looking to end the year with a bang, so whether you’re after the gastronomic, party popper, or gunpowder variety, we’re here to make the celebration happen!
The festive season continues at Capella where you can count down to 2013 in a white wonderland. Not only will you be dancing on a luminous glass dance floor, you’ll also be entertained by two-time Las Vegas Variety Entertainer of the Year, Donny Ray Evins, Dale Burridge, one of Australia’s most successful concert performers, and Trisha Crowe, one of Australia’s most famous female operatic voices and performers. Couple that with an epicurean feast by elebrity Chef Hans Borén, currently Chef de Cuisine at the 28+ restaurant in Göteborg, Sweden, a restaurant famed for being the longest restaurant in Sweden to hold a Michelin Star. There will be pre-dinner cocktails and free-flow champagne and wine post-countdown. Get on it! From $588+ (388++ for kids 6-12 years). Call 6591 5000 for reservations.
It’s Rock’n'Roll at CHIJMES’s retro-themed “Countdown to Retro” party at The Lawn, CHIJMES. The party’s free-for-all so you can hop over after your NYE feast and work off those calories on the dancefloor as local band, Retro Groove, will entertain with classic rock and roll tunes. The party starts at 10pm and goes till late. See www.CHIJMES.com.sg for more info.
Singapore’s most elite nightclub will be transformed into the ‘Golden Era’ of Las Vegas complete with Vegas-style entertainers, showgirls, mock casino table games, and New York’s most highly sought after DJ, Vikas Sapra.

It wouldn’t be a party without TBC. Celebrate with beach balls, floating lanterns, fire twirlers, and the sick beats of DJs Zig Zach and Nad-trix. Midnight revelry here begins at 9pm. Call 6270 1355 for dinner and daybed reservations, otherwise – it’s free!
This party speaks for itself: 12 hours, 5 party zones, and 20 DJs. Party begins at 6pm and goes till daybreak. Tickets at $52.
Live entertainment, a full drinks bar, a complimentary midnight toast, and a souvenir photo to remember the night. Oh – and only the most unobstructed views of the midnight fireworks. Standard ticket at $128, tables priced from $1088 for 8 pax. From 10pm-3am.
It’s a hedonistic Thai and Spanish insurrection at Martin No. 38 as BOMBA and KHA team up for an epic party. Start the party early with buffet menus from both restaurants (yes, you get to pick and choose from both BOMBA and KHA, plus there’s free-flow booze), then stomp to the beats of Whitelabel’s sound system featuring DJ Reiki and DJ Yeow. Those who are filling their tummies elsewhere can join in from 11pm for the countdown. Free-flow booze continues all night long! $68+ for the countdown party, $178+ for dinner and the party. Call KHA at 6476 9000 or BOMBA at 6509 1680.
Welcome the future by celebrating the past!
