Five Best Places to Drink Champagne in Singapore by Lucy Edwards

While there's no shortage of bars and restaurants offering champagne in Singapore, finding the perfect spot to enjoy this bubbly elixir can be a daunting task. To help you out, I've curated a list of the 5 best places to drink champagne in Singapore.


Whether you're visiting for a trade event like VinExpo or are a local looking to explore wine lists one glass of fizz at a time, these places have got you covered. From romantic settings to stunning views, here is my selection of the best champagne lists the Lion City has to offer!



 

Atlas Bar


I couldn't start this list without mentioning the iconic Art Deco splendour of Atlas Bar: Despite its breathtaking design, this venue is surprisingly young, having been built in 2002 by the Hwang family, developers of Parkview Square. Their goal was to create an inviting space that exudes elegance and sophistication, and they have certainly achieved this with ATLAS. The establishment boasts an impressive selection of wines and spirits that can elevate any occasion, with a collection of 50,000 bottles of fine wine, including one of Asia's largest champagne collections. They have close to 300 champagnes available by the bottle at any one time, including many exclusive disgorgements and cuvees, one of which is the Heidsieck & Co Monopole Gout Americain, which was crafted with an Extra Dry dosage as an hommage to the sweeter wines of the 20th century.

You can also expect to see Boërl & Kroff, 1966 Bollinger R.D. and jeroboams of 1990 Deutz for example.


Lucy's tip: If you have a spare $200k to drop, flex with one of their five bottles of 1907 Heidsieck & Co. Monopole “Goût Américain” retrieved in 1998 from the Jönköping shipwreck, a Champagne which was also served on the Titanic. Of course, I would be more than happy to join your table to help with some "quality control". If this isn't in your budget, you can still ask to view the special collection at the base of one of the towers. Read more about this wine here.


 

67 Pall Mall

The first international outpost of the infamous London member's club, 67 Pall Mall Singapore opened its Club and cellar doors on Valentine's Day 2022. The Shaw Centre penthouse, located in the heart of Orchard Road, provides a stunning backdrop for Members to enjoy the Club's extensive food & wine offering as well as events with the likes of Jancis Robinson, Richard Geoffroy, and of course, their in-house MW Richard Hemming.

Membership grants access to a collection of 5,000 wines, including 1,000 available by the glass – the largest and most diverse wine list in Southeast Asia, and around 15 champagnes by the glass at any one time.


Lucy' tip: Try to book a spot at the bar for a view of the wine tower, and the mini-elevator which zooms up and down to transport bottles from their resting spot to your glass. Large formats and special pours are also displayed there.

 


Wine RVLT

Expect 80s rock hits, stemless wine glasses and lots of interesting minimal intervention wines. Founded in 2017 by importers Alvin Gho and Ian Lim, Wine RVLT was the first wine bar to focus on a selection of natural wines. They have had such a cult following they have now opened in Taipei.

You won't find a traditional wine list here. Instead, a wine wall proudly displays empty bottles organised by type, color, and region. Prices are written on each bottle. The emphasis here is on sustainably-produced wines with minimal intervention, resulting in a selection of 160-170 unique labels. To keep things fresh, both the full list and the by-the-glass options are constantly evolving, providing guests with new and exciting options to explore. The champagne selection is scribbled down on a long sheet of butcher's paper, and it's not rare to see some Selosse, Stroebel or Francoise Bedel.


Lucy's Tip: Order the delicious fried chicken to pair with your champagne!


 

Le Quinze Vins


Sister venue to LQV in Paris and Hong Kong, this is one of the most interesting lists in the Lion City. With over 1,000 French references that they import themselves, the menu is divided into regions and subregions. If you're looking for a blanc de blancs from the Cote des Bar, or an aged Coteaux

Champenois, they will have it. They are also the local importer of iconic Doyard. Can't drink all those amazing wines in one sitting? No problem, LQV also has a takeaway license and can have wines sent directly to you in Singapore.


Lucy's Tip: Ask General Manager Benoit for his recommendations. Not only does he have amazing knowledge of gallic wines, but he may even have a few interesting drops in a secret stash.

 

Park90


A quiet night at Park90


Some of the best value wines in the city are here in the lobby of the Regent Hotel. Named after the legendary Robert Parker, all the wines here rate above 90 points and are served by some of the most highly awarded sommeliers in the business, led by Mason Ng, A.S.I. 2022 Best Sommelier for Asia & Oceania.

The 1,000+ wine list has all the classics, with a massive collection of wines from Champagne, Burgundy, and Bordeaux. For wine enthusiasts looking for a rare and exciting experience without breaking the bank, this is the perfect hideout. Here, wine geeks can indulge in tasting and drinking unique and unusual wines, making it a favorite spot for wine enthusiasts. Park90 offers membership in form of credits, which gives guests access to the "Member's Only list" and range of other benefits.


Lucy's tip: The same dream team are behind Grand Cru in The Fullerton Hotel. They host regular tastings and educational masterclasses for their loyal customers.
