The Perfect Date Night at Sofitel So Singapore

Make your next date night one to remember at the Sofitel So Singapore!


First stop— dinner!

You’d never expect to find a gastronomic experience, more so an award-winning one at that, at a casual gastro-bar adjacent to the main lobby of a hotel, but the Sofitel So Singapore’s Xperience Restaurant delivers. Led by culinary designer Chef Anne-Cecile Degenne, this hip joint dishes up a fusion of French and Singaporean cuisine, revisiting several local favourites with an edgy twist. Begin your meal with a classic French starter—the pan seared foie gras with beluga lentil and hazelnut. Then follow it up with the truffle pao with short ribs stuffing served in a bamboo dim sum steamer.

You can’t go wrong with a hearty steak for your main, and the grilled beef tenderloin with mushroom, asparagus and condiments is without a doubt, the star of the show. Love seafood? Don’t miss the lobster and scallop laksa risotto. If you still have space for dessert, try the white chocolate and yuzu crémeux. The refreshing citrus notes from the sorbet perfectly balance out the sweetness of the mousse and white chocolate.


Second stop— drinks!

What’s date night without a cocktail? Adjourn to the sixth floor of Sofitel So Singapore, where the trendy HI-SO Rooftop Bar awaits. Chill out at the open-air terrace with a mojito as you admire the surrounding buildings that make up the city skyline —you’ll feel like you’re in Manhattan! Take a dip in their stunning infinity-edge pool decked out in golden tiles—and we don’t blame you if you ditch the boyfriend and take your girlfriends instead! Psst! Every Wednesday night, ladies get a complimentary welcome glass of champagne at the bar, with subsequent glasses of bubbly starting from $10 all night. Or wind down a long work week on Fridays, where wines, beers and house pours are one-for-one from 6 to 9 p.m.
