The ultimate field day for all foodies

It's no secret by now that Marina Bay Sands isn't just a shopper's paradise — it has also rightfully earned its prominence as a one-stop destination for foodies craving a memorable gastronomical experience. Celebrity and Michelin-star restaurants? They're in abundance at Marina Bay Sands. As we gear up for this year's Epicurean Market, which kicks off today and continues through the weekend, here are some key highlights to look forward to. 

1. Get a sneak peek at the highly-anticipated LAVO

If you love Sin City, be delighted to know that LAVO, a multi-concept restaurant featuring a lounge, bar and nightclub hailing from New York and Las Vegas, will be making its Asian debut on our shores at the Sands SkyPark. Catch a preview of the luxurious space before its doors officially open.   

2. Connect with local flavours by the bar

You can always count on Diageo, the world's largest producer of spirits, for an adventurous tipple fix. Presenting a unique Kampung Bar inspired by the local flavours of our garden city, they've created cocktails from Milo powder and the Glen Ord 12 Year Old Scotch Whisky, as well as Laksa Remos, a creative take on the classic ramos gin fizz, spiked with lemon, egg white, coconut and laksa leaves. Be very intrigued.
