The Chocolate Bar At Marina Bay Sands – A Sweet Feast aboard the Sands SkyPark

thechocolatebar Everyday at 8pm, The Club at Marina Bay Sands SkyPark partially transforms into a magical buffet from the land of Chocolate. Counters are cleared, glasses replaced, and then cakes and pastries, to tarts and macaroons are laid out in exquisite fashion with candied almonds and nuts adorning the tabletops together with statues of chocolate pieces.

It is almost every chocolate lover’s dream, and with each item uniquely crafted by Marina Bay Sands Executive Pastry Chef Alejandro Luna and his team, this full blown buffet of 57 chocolate themed desserts is a journey that plays strongly on textures, flavours and layers. The breathtaking ambience of the Singapore skyline as witnessed from the Resort’s Sands SkyPark at the 57th level rounds off the entire adventure as a beautiful way to end the day.

A multitude of selections are available to sweeten the palate. Creations such as the White Chocolate – Pistachio & Five Spice Pear Baskets leaves a crisp yet velvety smooth taste peppered with hints of five spice powder textured with the crunchy yet soft cubes of pear.

The Black Pepper Chocolate Mousse Coriader Cream Pineapple itself sharply contrasts the common ideal smooth bitter sweet taste of the cacao bean with tangy pieces of pineapple hinting strongly towards an inspiration from a glass of Pina Colada.

And an interesting recommendation given to me was to try the Rosemary – Milk Chocolate Cappuccino. Served in a cup with a sprinkle of chocolate powder, the rosemary infused foam refreshes the palate with a clear herbal flavour, giving rise to a velvety mix of chocolate cappuccino.

Cakes play a veritable mention in this spread. And a must try is the White Chocolate Pear – Torte. Layers bring out the true enjoyment in each piece. The first start is the torte which itself is cotton soft to the touch. Follow the journey down with the first layer of custard soft pieces of pear with its own fruity sweetness and refreshing taste.

The variety at The Chocolate Bar is numerous and apart from simply indulging in each exquisite piece, one is also treated to a classy design and ambience and also the breathtaking view from the SkyPark. As a guest of The Chocolate Bar, the whole SkyPark is available for access whereas a SkyPark visitor has to pay $20 to visit and view from a sectioned area.

The Chocolate Bar at Marina Bay Sands is what I would call a worthy experience. Apart from feasting and savouring the pure pleasures of chocolaty creations by Executive Pastry Chef Alejandro, the visit also entails the calm and relaxing atmosphere of the Sands SkyPark itself. The buffet is located in The Club and is open from 8pm till midnight everyday, perfect for what I would call for an after dinner entertainment. To what I feel, the sweetness is not only in the creative chocolate desserts itself, but also the panorama all around.

  • Quek

    Hullo Justin, is there an entrance fee to this place if I’m going there for the buffet?

    • Hi Quek,

      From what I last checked, the buffet price already covers the entrance fee to the skypark.

      Cheers,
      Justin

      • Quek

        Thanks Justin!

        • You’re welcome =)

          • Tomato6166

            would like to go early to take in the view before sunset, but it opens only at 8pm – anyway out>

          • Hi Tomato6166,

            I am not too sure, but the chances are pretty slim. You might want to give
            Marina Bay Sands a call if you can go up early =)

            Cheers,
            Justin
