SINGAPORE (19 October 2020) – Aperol – Italy’s iconic orange bittersweet aperitif, a brand with a history of over 100 years and still 9th in the list of the world’s best-selling cocktails1, has teamed up with Bayside Drinks & Eats (BDE) to create the “Little Orange Dot” – the ultimate al fresco drinks destination in Singapore.
Having grown into its own cultural phenomenon, the sparkling orange aperitif evokes the Italian lifestyle with an international appeal which has swept across Singapore. A refreshing mix of equal parts Aperol and Prosecco with a dash of soda and garnished with an orange slice, the Aperol Spritz is easy to enjoy before lunch or dinner as a true Italian ritual, as a lighter option at an after-work get-together or served with food.
The perfect setting to relax and enjoy an Aperol Spritz with friends, Bayside offers laidback vibes, stunning panoramic views and lighthearted music in the heart of Marina Bay. The breezy outdoor venue welcomes everyone from the after-work crowd to cyclists and runners passing by to treat themselves at the end of a workout. The Marina Bay hotspot will offer a range of Aperol Spritz specials, kicking off with Sunset Hour every Wednesday through Sunday. Take in the views of Marina Bay Sands and the Fullerton Hotel while enjoying two-for-one Aperol Spritzes as well as house beer, wine or spirits (2 for S$20) between 5 – 7 PM daily. The venue will also offer a special Free Flow Saturday, extending an endless drinks package from 5 – 10 PM for S$70, including Aperol Spritzes as well as house beer and wine.
Weaving Aperol’s signature orange colour throughout the space, BDE has transformed into the Little Orange Dot in the heart of Singapore’s Marina Bay – the perfect escape for a carefree summer state of mind, all year round. The Aperol orange is accentuated by artwork from a monthly line-up of guest artists, first featuring a one-of-a-kind mural from the world-famous Colombian street artist Ledania. Next up will be SONG, a graffiti artist from Singapore whose art expresses his everyday observations in Singapore and places he has travelled. Inviting guests to get a first-hand look at the artists in action, Bayside will host regular weekend art events as part of their Little Orange Dot Art Series to unveil the new pieces while auctioning off the former month’s works for charity.
The light, bubbly Aperol Spritzes pair perfectly with Bayside’s Eats menu, including dishes such as the Lobster Roll with lobster sauteed in melted butter on a brioche bun with light mayo and herbs topped with a refreshing lemon squeeze (S$24), BDE Sliders, two mini double beef smash burgers covered with melted cheese and bacon on brioche buns (S$16) and Truffle Fries topped with fluffy parmesan cheese and green onion (S$12). Later this month, BDE will also roll out a leisurely free-flow weekend brunch, inviting guests to relax and forget their stresses of the week. Kick back and relax every Saturday and Sunday afternoon from 2 – 5 PM, with Spritzes and paired brunch dishes at S$60 per guest.
Following phase two requirements in Singapore, Bayside Drinks & Eats is open from 5 – 10:30 PM, every Wednesday through Sunday. The venue is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
