Marina Bay Street Circuit’s new lifestyle destination, Twenty3, returns for the Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix 2019 bigger, better and bolder with a new line-up of Michelin-starred chefs, trendy food and drink experiences, a whisky and rum speakeasy, the circuit’s only nightclub and unparalleled trackside views.
Guests at Twenty3 can also look forward to arriving in style via exclusive ferry services that ply between Bayfront North Jetty and Twenty3 – the only lifestyle facility to offer this as part of the ticket – before being welcomed into a lush secret garden oasis.
Dining with the Stars
A world of gastronomical delights await guests as Twenty3 brings together five Michelin stars within a 3,000 sqm trackside facility, taking discerning diners on a culinary journey.
From the home of the legendary Imola racing circuit in northern Italy, Chef Massimiliano Mascia of two Michelin-starred San Domenico will showcase a selection of contemporary Italian dishes in their Singapore culinary debut.
Founded in 1970, the restaurant’s most celebrated dishes will be served at Twenty3 such as the Marinated Amberjack with Fresh Vegetables as well as the Crispy Prawns with Spinach, Toasted Sesame and Balsamic Mousseline.
The “Japanese Master of True Kyoto Cuisine” – Chef Takagi Kazuo of two Michelin-starred Takagi from Ashiya, Japan – highlights the refined Kyo-ryori style of cuisine at Twenty3. Centred on time-honoured traditions, Chef Takagi’s dishes elevate simple Japanese ingredients into exquisitely plated dishes imbued with culture and seasonality. Some of his signature dishes include Grilled Wagyu with Seasonal Vegetables and Sio Koji Marinade Salmon. Diners can also head upstairs to the izakaya where they can enjoy fresh-off-the-grill yakitori skewers paired with a specially-curated selection of Japanese sake, whisky, beers and specialty cocktails.
Another chef making his Singapore debut at Twenty3, Chef Tiago Bonito of Portugal’s one Michelin-starred Largo do Paço, pays homage to his roots by reinterpreting classic recipes while incorporating an assortment of unique ingredients not traditionally used in Portuguese cuisine. Highlights include the Veal of Milk with Smoked Celery, Asparagus and Madeira Wine as well as the Sea Bass, Crustaceans “Xerém”, Seaweed and Champagne.

Inspired by the Jazz era of the 1920s, Singapore GP’s first whisky and rum speakeasy exudes a blend of old world charm and luxury. Helmed by artisanal bar La Maison du Whisky, the 40-seat watering hole will feature an exceptional selection of 23 Scotch whiskys and specialty rums in a cosy, and intimate environment. A discreet, unmarked door conceals the entrance into the bar – a treat for those lucky enough to find it.
