A favorite among locals and international travelers alike, Mezza Nine at the Grand Hyatt Singapore offers nine individual dining experiences and a multitude of culinary delights.

A lifestyle restaurant allowing diners to choose from the steam basket, grill, wok, deli counter, seafood, Thai, sushi, yakitori, or patisserie counter, guests can choose to sit in any area of the restaurant and bar, and even with a 400 seat capacity it is one of the most buzzing Singapore bars.

The martini bar is well-known for offering the largest selection of martinis on the island.

Marina Bay Sands

One of the most iconic landmarks on the island, Marina Bay Sands is world-famous, and one of the trendiest attractions to see.
