Explore the world of fine wines, spirits and cuisine at Club55 in Marina Bay Sands, as the hotel’s lounge presents a brand new evening concept titled Flights of Fancy. Nestled 55 levels above ground with magnificent views of the Singapore city skyline, Club55’s new evening programme offers a selection of seven tasting flights, paired with exquisite bites created by Marina Bay Sands’ Executive Chef Brian Cleere.
Available every evening, Flights of Fancy offers an array of beverage choices, ranging from champagnes to dessert wines, sakes, beers, as well as red and white wines. Each offering comprises of a trio of small plates crafted with premium ingredients such as caviar, fine cheeses, and truffles, perfectly paired with select tipples.
Seven unique flight pairings
Indulge in the classic Rouges of the Old World (flight of three 60ml glasses with petits plats; S$55++), a handpicked selection of three vintage red wines that showcase the varied charms of the deep reds. First, sip on the Tempranillo, Lan Crianza from Rioja Spain, perfumed with aromatic red fruits laced with notes of vanilla and spices. The second glass of medium-bodied Barbera d’Alba, Adriano from Piedmont Italy elevates the senses with a crisp and zesty mouthfeel, amidst undertones of dark cherry and berry. Cap off with a glass of deep red Merlot, St. Vincent Grand Cru from St. Emilion France — this complex wine features contrasting flavours of red fruit and plums, with notes of velvety tannins. These red wines are paired with elegant small plates, namely the Duck rillettes with toasted brioche, Arancini di Riso with mushroom and truffles, and lastly the Ribeye brochette with soy glace
Sake fans will delight in Rice In A Bottle (flight of three 45ml glasses with petits plats; S$47++). The pairing features Nanbubijin’s signature Tokubetsu Junmai, made using premium Japanese Ginotome rice. An excellent drink to pair with a myriad of dishes, the sake exudes a rich aroma of fruity notes, and can be enjoyed at any temperature. The second sake, Junmai Daiginjo, Kitagawa Tomioh, is milled and brewed with high quality rice in Kyoto, rendering it mild notes of wood, melon and vanilla. The finale is a glass of Den-En Gold Shochu, a stronger distilled variant of sakes. Strong hints of fresh barley with light citrus and malt notes offer a delightful contrast to its nutty base, complete with a brisk finish. The trio is paired with exquisite plates of Smoked Salmon with sour cream, chives and chopped egg, Hummus and crudités, and Chicken satay with peanut sauce.
Guests can also opt for a refreshing beer flight The Brew (flight of three 90ml glasses with petits plats; S$44++), or luxuriate in the champagne pairing Sparkling Jewels (flight of three 60ml glasses with petits plats; S$51++). Other pairings include the Rouges Of The New World (flight of three 60ml new world reds with petits plats; S$48++), Les Blancs (flight of three 60ml white wines with petits plats; S$47++), and the Dessert For The Nobles (flight of three 45ml dessert wines with petits plats; S$54++).
Mocktails and vegetarian options
A luxurious lounge experience for everyone, Flights of Fancy offers non-alcoholic beverage pairings and vegetarian options for guests with various dietary preferences.

A selection of vegetarian petits plats (S$19++ for three plats) is also available, featuring Hummus & Crudites, Arancini di Riso with Mushroom and Truffles, and Vegetarian Maki Roll with Pickled Radish.
