What to Do This Week: Drinks, Tennis and Dance
DRINK: 1-Altitude, World's Highest Alfresco Bar
Alfresco bars seem to be popping up on every roof in town, but this one stood as the highest in the world when it first opened. 1-Altitude, along with its sibling party spotAltimate, still holds the record as the urban highspot for clubbing (where your cell reception also switches to Telkomsel on occasion). Perched atop One Raffles Place (the former OUB Centre) at a vertigo-inducing height of 282 metres, be prepared to take in an incomparable view of Singapore. Aside from the bar on level 63; the complex also contains Stellar, a fine-dining restaurant on level 62 and the A.L.T Cafe Bar on the ground floor. Equinox, who?
Level 63, One Raffles Place
WATCH: BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore
We're not ashamed to admit that these women are way more athletic than we are, which makes it even more exciting that we follow the tennis competition with the largest pool in the world. The BNP Paribas WTA Finals is currently going on, and we have to say that we're awfully excited to catch this impressive series. For those of you who are more indoorsy, however, you can always just catch the game from the comfort of your living room, thanks to Tennis TV. It's not free though. Streaming comes at a price. There's also the WTA Finals app (for iOS and Android respectively) you can download for the latest information.
Indoor Stadium, now till Nov 2.
This year marks the fifth edition of the annual choreographic workshop in Singapore and this year, three up-and-coming choreographers have been selected by the Singapore Dance Theatre to develop this series of performances over the course of two weeks. Although you're just the viewer, this is really an insight into the development of new dance talents, as they each develop a short 10 minute piece. This year's choreographers include Max Chen, Gigi Gianti, and Swiss-Canadian choreographer Kinsun Chan.
