Food lovers will be able to feast in food and beverage (F&B) areas spanning 9,400 square metres (picture) when the first phase of the $1 billion Gardens by the Bay project opens in November next year.
Gardens by the Bay is a development covering three major parks around the Marina Bay in downtown Singapore.
Yesterday, the National Parks Board unveiled the F&B area which will span about two football fields. It will house 18 spaces that are expected to attract casual to high-end dining F&B operators to Bay South, the first phase of Gardens by the Bay.
Gardens by the Bay is currently in talks with F&B outlets from Singapore, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Australia and the United Kingdom.
The tender for all 18 F&B spaces in Bay South, which is located in Marina South, will be opened in September.
Mr Darren Oh, assistant director of business at Gardens by the Bay, said it is working with F&B operators to create concepts unique to the green setting.
“They have been very forthcoming in coming up with new concepts and refreshing ideas about leveraging on some of the spaces that are available in the gardens,” said Mr Oh.
The F&B outlets will be in several of Bay South’s eco-themed attractions, such as the Conservatory Complex which houses endangered plant species; as well as atop of the 50-metre tall Supertree which has panoramic views of Singapore’s skyline.
