Owner description: An elegant selection of modern European dishes featuring the freshest possible ingredients and thoughtful presentation. All day dining in style – from a light breakfast, fulfilling lunch and an indulgent dinner to late night grazing. For drinks, the journey starts with our inspirations from the Arts Décoratifs — a locally roasted espresso to a tulip of fine Champagne, to grand cocktails inspired by hallmarks of the Art Deco era. At ATLAS, we are delighted to propose beverages and dishes suited perfectly for each occasion.

When Las Vegas and too much money get together this is the result. Ridiculously over the top place, ridiculous prices topped off by a poor girl dressed as a fairy flying up and down a tall wine cellar on a harness. Really? Could it get more absurd? If you like crass shows of wealth you'll love this place.

Wow wow, I love this place, Divine is located in a large floodlit Ghost busters/ Gotham City style building actually a unique style in Singapore worth looking at night or day for a great photo shoot but the place oozes style and grandeur. Walking thru the doors you enter a vast almost "cathedral " like place with the most amazing & dramatic Art Deco furnishings, bronze metal walkways, wood paneling, amazing designed tiled floor, carpets and painted ceilings that could easily be imagined as the work of Michael Angelo!!! With the largest glass fronted wine cellar I have ever seen. You can not even imagine just how beautiful this place is, love it. But the night is all about the "Wine Angel", a bar waitress dressed in a silver ballet tutu and shoes, who links herself to a harness and then you are entertained while she is guided up a 15 metre high glass fronted wall of wine selecting the ordered wine from more than 3000 bottles and then slowly descends in an entertaining zig zag dance routine across the glass panel doors and back to the bar. Obviously the wine is not cheap but that is the same anywhere in Singapore, expect to pay £40 for a good Chile red wine but you can pay a lot more, however this is a theatre of opulence and you can just sit back in beautiful Art Deco sofas & chairs or at many tables spread around this wonderful room. You can just visit and have tea, coffee or a juice, whatever, just visit to blow your mind, obviously I love it and hope you do.they do have have live bands playing sometimes but the background music just enhances this great experience.

Having heard about Divine Wine bar from some friends who had visited Singapore, we decided to give it a try.
From outside the building stands in fantastic Art Deco style with a resemblance of the Empire State Building in NY.
The wonderful status and waterfall features gives a peaceful effect. We arrived in daylight and left when darkness started to set and the building is illuminated.
Entry to Divine leave you stunned. The magnificent ornate decor mostly of copper and brass decorates the entire ground floor. The rest of the building houses VIP office I.e. International consulates.
Now for the bar.
The wine cellar and the room full of magnificent decor leaves your head feeling like a loose button. So much to look at.
The waitress comes to your table offering drinks menus and of course the wine is why your there so a bottle is ordered.
The little "fairy" is then given instruction and next thing you see is the fairy suspended from the over head winch and floats up and around the room to finally locate the wine bottle you have requested. Great gimmick and that aside a fabulous bar to go and chill with friends.
Definitely recommended if you live or are coming to Singapore.
5/5 from me

Enjoy

This is a nice place to see the Art Deco and to watch the "wine fairy" bring down the wine from the huge wine cellars. This was very unique and certainly an attraction. Overall the place is good but a bit expensive. We went as a group from work. Also, we were sitting in a corner where the airconditioning was not effective which made us uncomfortable. I don't think I will go unless it was for business.

We came here to celebrate our anniversary.

We ordered a bottle of wine, so that the wine angel would fly up the wine tower to retrieve our select bottle, it is like a must see when you visit this bar...

I must say, it was my first time to see such method to retrieve bottle of wine... it was quite entertaining indeed.

It doesn't serve any cuisine here, purely alcohol and few choices for snacks (snacks are like SGD 10++ per plate and small portion...) So if you plan to visit this place for drinks, better eat nearby first.

Despite service is good and staffs are friendly, the drinks aren't cheap. The bottle of red wine we had ordered was SGD 185++... so we still consider to visit here once in a while but not often...

Fyi, total we spent SGD 240+ for two persons

Cheers
