Summer Pavilion is Singapore’s top spot for Cantonese cuisine crafted with finesse. The one-Michelin-starred restaurant has equally fine interiors to match, and six private dining rooms than can accommodate groups of various sizes ranging from six to 30.
The names of Summer Pavilion’s smaller private dining rooms are inspired by Chinese flora, such as Wisteria, Plum, Pine, Elm and Bamboo. Each space features a handsome alcohol cabinet stocked with wines, liquors and spirits. The largest private room, the Garden Suite, which can house up to 30 guests, makes the perfect venue for hosting corporate events or celebrating extended family reunions. It boasts a separate entrance as well as a living room with plush sofa seating, great for pre-dinner cocktails or post-meal cognacs. The modern space is also equipped with a wireless keyboard, three built-in LCD projectors and three screens.
A minimum spend of $1,000 is applicable for bookings of 10 guests or less, and $2,500 for bookings of 20 to 30 guests. This amount excludes beverages.

Dom Pérignon Plénitude Suite at Stellar at 1-Altitude
Perched on the 62nd floor of One Raffles Place, this eight-seater private dining room boasts sweeping views of the Marina Bay area. But when the lights dim and the meal commences, it's the dining table that quite literally sets the stage for the evening, not only in the multi-course feasts by executive chef Christopher Millar, but also in the light projections that illuminate the entire table. Those who have dined at Ultraviolet by Paul Pairet in Shanghai might find the audiovisual theatrics familiar, but here, Millar has a few more surprises up his sleeve, one of which involves guests being blindfolded as servers set the scene for a twinkling finale.
As the Plenitude Suite was developed in collaboration with French champagne house Dom Perignon, diners can expect to sip on vintages – such as the Dom Pérignon Oerothèque Rosé 1993, Dom Pérignon P2 1995 and Dom Pérignon Rosé 1988 Magnum – that are not available anywhere else in Singapore. A dedicated suite concierge can help to arrange for limousine transfers, live entertainment, and more.
Stellar at 1-Altitude. Level 62, One Raffles Place, Singapore 048616. Tel: 6438 0410 For more information about the Dom Perignon Plenitude Suite, visit Stellar at 1-Altitude or email firstname.lastname@example.org
