It’s the only hospitality option that is available as single day tickets and the promoter promises a feast for the senses for more reasons than one.
For a start, guests get superb views of the race as Twenty3, like the name implies, is strategically located at Turn 23, the final corner of the street circuit where drivers battle it out before they head to the checkered flag for a chance of a podium finish.
The action can be caught from full-length windows at the restaurants or outdoors at a viewing gallery on the rooftop.
If all that is not enticing enough, the food and beverage offerings that is supported by the St Regis Singapore will help seal the deal. There will be three feature restaurants serving Italian, Asian and New Age cuisine, as well as four specialty bars and a 10-metre long dessert bar, all housed within a 3000 sqm facility.
Here is what guests can expect:
Franceschetta 58: Diners of the sister restaurant of Massimo Bottura’s three-Michelin-starred Osteria Francescana can look forward to the Modena eatery’s famous Emilia Burger. The Wall Street Journal calls it “an umami-rich burger loaded with Parmigiano-Reggiano” that is mixed into the beef to help the patty form a nutty crust as it pan-fries.
Le Charlemagne: Helmed by highly-acclaimed French chef Laurent Peugeot, the popular one-Michelin-starred restaurant is known for marrying Asian and Burgundian cuisines to create fresh fusion flavours. Hence, on the menu will be Scallop Hokkaido with Takuan, Pomelo and Sake Yuzu, as well as Wagyu Beef Pot-Au-Feu with Daikon, Pickles and Ravioli.
Five Light Pavilion: A collaboration between Singapore’s Blue Lotus Chinese Grill House and Tokyo’s China Blue restaurant, diners can expect unique gastronomic creations like Chinese Hua Tiao Wine and Crispy Mantou, and Green Lip Mussels with Garlic.
Saga: Those with a sweet tooth can look forward to a 10-metre long dessert bar helmed by Australian pastry chef Andrew Bowden, who is better known online as @AndyBowdy. Expect treats like Glow in the Dark Vanilla Slice, as well as the chocolaty decadence of his signature Karl Cake.
Apex Lounge: Twenty3 will house four bars including a whisky one which will serve 23 different kinds of scotch. But the highlight is the two-storey Apex Lounge that will serve specially crafted cocktails and features Singapore’s first kinetic light installation that has been flown in from Germany. Music will be provided by guest deejay Gil Glasenberg (DJ Gil Glaze).
