Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Perched on the rooftop of the iconic National Gallery Singapore, Smoke & Mirrors is a destination bar known for spectacular panoramic views of the Marina Bay and a progressive cocktail programme. The unblocked panoramic view of the Padang and Marina Bay is reason enough to visit. Boasting stylish interiors and an imaginative cocktail menu, enjoy a memorable evening in the company of impressive tipples made to ignites your senses. With plenty of woods, copper tones and warm lighting, the bar exudes a magnetic intimacy. The service reflects this persona too; discreet and engaging.

This bar is on the top of the National Gallery and it is a very stylish spot. We loved the design and had no problems getting a table at 6pm as the staff kindly let us have one which had a later reservation. The cocktail list is short but creative and we very much enjoyed what we tried, especially the take on a Singapore Sling with a pineapple froth on top. There are fine views across the cricket field and the mix of old and new buildings that makes Singapore a fascinating place to visit. The Gallery itself looked very good though was closing when we arrived. Cocktails around $23++ which is average for the top spots in the city.

Comfortable seating with views over the Padang, Singapore Cricket Club, the finance district and Marina Bay and Hotel Spent two hours watching the cityscape through sunset to nightfall and the (somewhat overhyped) laser and water show this was a really enjoyable opportunity for relaxed sightseeeing - and better still if you enjoy a gin and tonic or two!!

Stumbled across this place on what appeared to be a very busy night due to some kind of festival taking place in front of the art gallery. There were no tables available but we managed to get a seat at the bar.
It was a very pleasant experience watching cocktails being made and chatting to the busy but pleasant staff. They eve served my favorite but quite rare Scottish Whisky.

Went there with friends and it was their first time there, they absolutely loved it! Bartenders were willing to explain the menu to you without hesitation and service was attentive as well. Heard many amazing things about this place and it definitely did not disappoint. A great hangout for chill Friday drinks with a quiet relaxing atmosphere to go.

Go there for the views at night as Singapore lit up is a beautiful panorama from this rooftop bar atop of the National Gallery. Classical drinks menu and nice layout but we had a superb time as the Chinese New Year laser and light shows dazzled us. Good service too
