1-Altitude Gallery & Bar has easily the best view of downtown Singapore. Situated on the 63rd floor of the OUB Centre, 1-Altitude Gallery & Bar is among the highest al-fresco rooftop bars in the world, and the highest one in Singapore.

At 282 meters, and with a unique triangular design, 1-Altitude Gallery & Bar offers a spectacular 360 degree view of Singapore at night, especially the downtown area and its landmarks.

As an open concept rooftop bar, there is absoutely no shelter, and at the slightest chance of rain, an alarm will sound, and guests will be requested to move indoors to the bar on level 61.

This actually happened just 5 minutes into my visit, where we planned to celebrate a friend's birthday, so we felt quite upset. Fortunately, staff will inform you once the skies clear up, and you can return to the roof, as it happened for us.

As a bar, there is a good range of drinks, at slightly higher than normal prices, and a DJ spinning club / dance music for atmosphere. The food offered consists only of finger food, and is quite expensive. Recommended to dine elsewhere instead.

I actually found the service to be excellent. Our group had a personal server, Jane, who assisted us in moving our drinks down to level 61 when it was about to rain, and helped us book a space at the bar. She helped us prepare the birthday cake, and even cleared up the mess after we were done.

I felt quite bad however, as she actually passed me her personal pen to fill out a contest entry, and I left it at the bar in level 61, when she helped us moved back up to the roof after the skies cleared up... Her pen went missing after that. Sorry, Jane!

The crowds start to gather around 10pm, so if you want to avoid a packed environment, it's best to visit before 9.30pm. Seats available are usually reserved, so unless you make a reservation at least 3 days in advance, you might have to sit at the bar counter, or stand at the standing areas. However, staff will allow you to sit at reserved seats, until the guest who reserved them turns up.

If you're planning a visit to 1-Altitude Gallery & Bar, do note that the required attire is smart casual, and the cover charge is $25 or $30, depending on the day of your visit. Do allocate about 1 hour to soak in the view, chill out with drinks, or just enjoy the music.
