    Agree. Nice bar, nice view. I like it better than the Ku De Ta as you can see the Marina Bay Sands (MBS, the casino hotel complex shaped like a ship) from the One Altitutde. Ku De Ta is on top of the MBS so you can't see it. The view from the One Altitude is good on the Central Business District. It's open air. Dress code quite strict (no short pants). If there is a storm coming, you will have to move to the lower floor (indoor).
    Enjoy your drink.

    One Altitude is the highest bar in Singapore at 282 meters. It's at the top of the second tallest building in Singapore (after UOB). Really amazing view, you can go all over, giving you a 360 degree view, from the view to Malaysia, to the Marina and Indonesia, as well as many areas of Singapore

    Never heard about it, but I guess it is interestingly positioned to give a great view, while we are unwinding and relaxing over a drink.

    Kudeta is free for entry other than Fri/Sat after 9pm, and located on 56th level with limited view.

    Altitude has a entry of $30 plus with an alcohol beverage, located on 63rd level with unlimited view.

    A bar with a view is nice - but there's a whole lot more to making a good bar than a view. Start with the environment, then move on to the drinks and food. I'll have to check it out when I go to Singapore.

    Ive been up tall towers and while the views are good for like 20 mins after that if the drinks are expensive and the food isn't good it's time to go. I'd rather sit on a beach drinking a beer and eating a nice curry.

    really nice article from Tanya on travelfish as mentioned above. it looks great to me. Singapore is expensive anyway, so make the most of it with that spectacular view. i frequent the somewhat similar Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas. the bar and viewing gallery is on the 108th floor. i spend about an hour each time and haven't been bored yet. cheers.

    we normally drink in ku da ta , its free to get up to but drinks will set you back about 20 SGD for a pint of beer , so 18 dollar plus a free drinksounds good value , will have to go and check it out this weekend.

    We have a 16 story hotel with a rotating restaraunt / bar here in Mukdahan. Gives excellent views since it's easily the tallest building in town. Beers are expensive though, at more than two bucks a beer.

    Well, out here two bucks is a bit pricey. Mind you we're talking the 12 ounce not the 16 ounces beers.

    The drinks are not anything special at One Altitude but the view of Singapore's citycape is stunning.
