Cé La Vi
Welcome the Year of the Ox with a celebratory set menu at Cé La Vi, located atop the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.
Start the new year right by enjoying an indulgent dining experience 57 floors above the city lights.
Featuring Asian cuisine with a modern twist, the scrumptious six-course set dinner menu ($158++) ties each dish to a Chinese traditional value.
As a sign of longevity, the Heirloom Tomato Salad & Burrata will be served with yuzu-shiso vinaigrette and black sesame tuile.
Have a year full of luck with the Black Truffle Chicken Soup infused with dry shiitake mushrooms and black chicken and ginger. Embrace harmony with the Steamed Kühlbarra Seabass dressed in lemongrass-coconut broth and served with sautéed squid and Thai basil.
See your wealth multiplied with the Iberico Pork Loin in shiitake tare glaze, mustard greens and green apple. And be ready for a love-filled year by sharing the delight of the Prosperity Koi dessert, coconut koi jelly with chilled mango pomelo sago, crispy mung bean and pu-er bubbles.
The Chinese New Year dinner menu is available from Feb 8 to 21, with the exception of Valentine’s Day, at Cé La Vi Restaurant. Reserve your table by phone at 6508 2188, or email [email protected]

The programme invites visitors to a “shoppable” experience to discover over 10 unique artist and brand collaborations.

Curated by creative collective Neighborhood and presented by Funan, Creative Unions is part of both organisers’ commitment to provide a commercially viable and creatively fulfilling platform for artists and retailers to create and engage with one another.
The programme rallies diverse homegrown brands like Love, Bonito; Minor Miracles; LiHo Tea; PPP Coffee and Edible Garden City, alongside international brands such as Vansand Bernina. These tenants at Funan have been paired with emerging and established Singaporean visual artists who share similar values and aesthetic visions.
Beyond merchandise and store takeovers, expect curator walkthroughs, meet-theartist sessions and even a 3D Free-Motion sewing workshop, where visitors will be able to interact with art and artists first-hand.
As part of Singapore Art Week 2021, visitors at Funan can also enjoy A Closer Encounter With Art, an exhibition by ArtWallSt, showcasing delightful artworks by local artists, The Next Most Famous Artist and Zero at Level 1.
