Unwind from a long and hard day of work with chilled alcoholic drinks against the backdrop of Singapore's twinkling cityscape at Terra – a sophisticated rooftop bar that is the latest addition to Suntec City's Sky Garden.
Built at a cost of S$850,000, Terra is a breath of fresh air and the space catches the eye from afar, with its distinctive façade of stained wood panels and playful dash of glazed tiles, subtly underscoring its Latin influence. One is also drawn to its expansive plaza of both interior and exterior spaces, which succinctly capture the breadth of intimacy and openness, accentuated by the lush botany. Inside, the soft, pastel-hued banquette-seating is set against the sumptuous textured woods that line the 27-m long earth-toned, terrazzo-panelled bar – Terra’s focal point. The openness is underscored by the high ceiling and integrated spaces. Terra can accommodate up to 180 people in both outdoor and indoor spaces, while it can seat 90 diners.
The classy and laidback setting of this newly opened rooftop bar provides for the perfect venue to retreat from the hustle and bustle of life – whether it is for after-work drinks, dates, or a relaxing night out with friends.
Strategically located in Suntec City's picturesque open-air garden, the foliage all around coupled with Terra's unique bungalow-like décor will make you feel as though you are chilling out at a resort with awesome music, company, drinks and food.

Terra is as equally committed to its beverages and culinary offerings as it is with its ambience and furnishings. While it features an international bar selection, Terra stays true to its roots, exploring culinary and drinks propositions with a slight touch of its Latin quintessence and botanical influences.
Terra's cultivated cocktail menu created specially by their own mixologist plays up its botanical elements in both flavor and aesthetics, from a variety of cocktail-friendly plants such as thyme, mint, basil, rosemary and coriander, which, in addition to garnishing the drinks, sit in tiny terraniums behind the bar, enhancing the bar's botanical vibe.
Terra's kitchen is manned by Singaporean chef Man (formerly of Cocina De Pasion and Lucha Loco) who is constantly concocting new ingenious dishes for adventurous food lovers who appreciate details and food with bold flavors. His Lantin American-inspired dishes bursting with fresh ingredients and big flavors will not disappoint your tastebuds.

Terra stands out from many other rooftop bars not only in its loving dedication to its atmosphere, food and drinks but also with its music. Instead of playing generic tracks through a fixed playlist, Terra has a bevy of resident DJs helming the DJ booth from Wednesday – Saturday so that your auditory senses will always be satisfied. After all, you can only expect the best from the very same people who brought you the underground club Kyo on Cecil Street and R&B club Refuge on Circular Road..
