There is something pretty special about partying on a rooftop. Enjoying music and partying with friends while suspended above a city creates a sense of space that is exciting and inspiring, in equal measure. But where are the best sky-high places to party? Join us as we uncover the world’s best rooftop clubs...
Perennially Instagrammable, the stunning CÉ LA VI on the 57th floor of Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands SkyPark hosts talent as impressive at its views. Now in its 10th year, the indoor/outdoor space went through a facelift in recent months, and also brought the likes of Claptone, Louie Vega, A-Trak, Mark Knight and the Martinez Brothers to the booth.
Open seven days a week from noon ‘til late, each hour brings with it a different experience. The highlight is the majestic Sunset Sessions next to the infinity pool, accompanied by the best of local and regional DJs, on the latest d&b audiotechnik soundsystem.
Picture the scene. You’re 200-metres high above Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands sky park, above one of Asia’s most impressive cityscapes, surrounded by A-listers and sophisticated party people, all here to experience an incredibly-positioned dancefloor. Doesn’t sound bad, does it?
With that in mind it’s understandable Cé La Vi has been a Top 100 Clubs poll fixture since 2016, a year after it changed identity from Ku De Ta, picking up a reputation for more than those panoramic views alone — as anyone who caught recent sets from Crazy P, Bob Sinclar, Amine Edge & Dance and Kenny Dope understands.
Previously known as Ku De Ta, Cé La Vi came into existence in 2015 following a re-brand and an investment from a company associated with LVMH, the owner of luxury goods maker Luis Vuitton. Cé La Vi also has clubs in Hong Kong, Bangkok and St Tropez and has plans to open venues in Kuala Lumpur, Dubai and Colombo.
Over the past year, Cé La Vi in Singapore has put a lot of effort into daytime parties. In particular, its Noon to Moon events have seen acts like Alle Farben and Fred Everything performing at the 57th floor venue, surrounded by stunning views of Singapore as the sun goes down.
In addition to this daytime debauchery, the venue has also ramped up its big name booking policy and in the past 12 months alone, Armin Van Buuren, Roger Sanchez, Jazzy Jeff and A-Trak have all performed at the venue, testing out its cutting-edge D&B Audiotechnik soundsystem. The club also hosts popular disco, world music and hip-hop nights during the week.
Firmly established as the destination to party in Asia, clubbers at Cé La Vi Singapore are likely to rub shoulders with international A-list guests, with David Beckham, Ed Sheeran, Leonardo DiCaprio and Coldplay all spotted at the venue.
Situated in the Marina Bay Sands’ SkyPark and boasting 360-degree views, CÉ LA VI offers unparalleled views over Singapore from the 57th floor.
Formerly known as KU DÉ TA, it rebranded back in June of last year and is as plush as you might imagine, opening at noon every day for fine dining and drinks. Musically, this draws the big-hitters: Lil’ Jon, Gregor Salto and Samantha Ronson soundtracking those getting crunk.
But with their Club Lounge and SkyBar pushing deeper grooves, their list of guest acts also sometimes looks left, Jose Padilla hosting their sunset sessions and Satin Jackets bringing a taste of new disco to this Asian paradise.
