The Sunday bottomless champagne brunch at the Lavo restaurant in Singapore is a must do activity for those that want a great party with a view. Whether you’re living in Singapore or are visiting Singapore for the weekend, Sunday Lavo brunch will leave you impressed, drunk, and full.
Lavo is a rooftop restaurant at the top of the ultra famous Marina Bay Sands hotel of Singapore. It is located in Tower 1 of Marina Bay Sands which is the southern most tower. From the entrance, you will see signs of Lavo on your left hand side almost immediately upon entering.
Take the elevator to the 57th floor where you’ll be greeted with signs for entering Lavo. Nearby to the entrance is the famous Marina Bay Sands infinity pool which spans 150 meters and is probably the most beautiful pool in the world. Unfortunately, only guests at the hotel can visit the pool.
When is the bottomless brunch at Lavo Singapore?
The famous bottomless champagne brunch is on Sundays between 12pm and 3pm. It only happens on Sundays so you’ll want to plan accordingly. The price for the brunch if $98++ (exclusive of tax and service) for the all you can eat seafood buffet and $168++ to include the bottomless champagne.
This might seems like a crazy price but it is actually quite reasonable especially if you plan to get rowdy. Alcohol is notoriously expensive in Singapore and a glass of Veuve Cliquot is already $30 at the other rooftop restaurants in Marina Bay Sands. That means, you just need to drink 5 glasses of champagne and you’ve already recouped your entire cost before you’ve indulged in the huge buffet.
The champagne of choice served at Lavo is Veuve Cliquot which isn’t the fanciest champagne but in Singapore, one bottle will cost $85 SGD at the wine store. I drank at least a bottle of champagne to myself so I absolutely got my money’s worth.
Reservations are open for brunch 1 month in advance and I would highly recommend booking in advance, especially if you’re a larger group.
Can you show up without a reservation?
The answer is yes. The times I’ve been to Lavo, the restaurant isn’t entirely full and there was always seating available. You won’t get the best tables in the house but you can still participate in the boozy brunch. I absolutely would recommend making reservations but if there are none left and you can’t live without a rooftop boozy brunch, then I would definitely just try your luck. The worst that can happen is that you are turned away but you can still take amazing photos from the rooftop terrace at Lavo.
What is the vibe of Lavo Singapore like?
Lavo is a worldwide institution of lounge style club-restaurants famous for their parties. Each Lavo destination has their own vibe but generally it’s known for their DJs, dance parties, and extravagant brunches filled with endless bubbly.
Singapore’s location is more chilled and laid back compared to its other locations. There are many groups of older people as well as families with young kids meaning you won’t see the dancing on tables that other Lavo locations might be famous for.
Nevertheless, the ambiance is perfect for a slightly rowdy Sunday afternoon with the music low key bumping. Grab your glass of champagne and make sure to walk around the terrace of Lavo and soak in the beautiful views of Singapore which comes 100% free with the brunch!
The view from Lavo Singapore
Not only do you get a terrific value for money with the endless champagne, but you also have one of the best views of Singapore at Lavo. The combination of an elevated seafood champagne brunch with incredible rooftop views is what makes Sundays at Lavo special.
I still prefer the view from Ce La Vie on the opposite side of the Marina Bay Sands rooftop as you have views of the pool in addition to the Singapore skyline. Nevertheless, no one will leave feeling unimpressed after a glimpse of the skyline from Lavo!
The drinks at Sunday Lavo Brunch
Now on to the good stuff, the drinks. The star of the show at Lavo Singapore is the bottomless champagne. By bottomless, I really do mean bottomless. You can drink as much champagne as you can handle and no one will bat an eye.
Lavo Singapore serves Veuve Cliquot Brut as their champagne of choice. I’ve read in the past, you could upgrade and be served Moet or even Dom Perignon for a elevated price but I saw no other bottles of champagne besides Veuve during my visit. No matter as Veuve is perfectly acceptable and delicious as I learned during my many visits to the Champagne region of France.
You have three hours to drink as much bubbly as you can (last call is at 2:45pm). You will also never need to ask for refills as the waiters are constantly refilling your glass. After drinking a few, I didn’t even remember the waitress coming to my table to refill the glass but it was completely refilled!
In addition to champagne, there is the entire spectrum of cocktails on offer. From famous Singapore Slings to Espresso martinis, you can mix it up from the champagne with other types of alcohols. We all enjoyed a nice espresso martini at the end.
The Food at Lavo Sunday brunch
Before indulging in the food, we take a moment to sit and enjoy a soul-reviving glass of Veuve Clicquot Brut while admiring the luxurious ambiance of reclaimed subway tiles, leather booths, and antique mirrors. Besides champagne, we can enjoy endless pours of various drinks such as mimosa, Bloody Mary, Singapore Sling, beer, and house wine.
The Raw Bar is a visual spectacle, loaded with US and Irish oysters, snow crab legs, lobster claws, shrimp cocktails, scallops, mussels, yabbies, and middleneck clams, all presented on ice. For those who prefer cooked seafood, the Charred Octopus with fennel canapés, Tuna Tartare, and Eggplant Caponata with whipped goat cheese are also delightful. The seafood at Lavo is fantastic but I was hoping there would be more flavorful sauces beyond the standard cocktail sauce you see at the standard Western restaurants in town. I wouldn’t have minded more chili sambal sauces in line with the local flavors.
Carved meats are a must-have for brunch, and LAVO’s Roasted Pork Roulade, Broiled Beef Tenderloin, and Whole Roasted Free Range Chicken with red wine jus, horseradish cream, and signature steak sauce did not disappoint. We also indulged in LAVO’s breakfast hits, such as Wild Mushroom Frittata, thick-cut Apple Wood Smoked Bacon, and mini versions of their iconic Imperial Wagyu and Italian sausage LAVO Meatball.
In true Italian-American fashion, LAVO offers a selection of pizzas, including Spinach and Artichoke, Margherita, Quattro Formaggi, and Salmon Oreganato. The standout pies were the simplest ones, Spinach and Artichoke, and Margherita, which were served piping hot from the stone oven. To finish off the meal, we enjoyed an array of petit fours, muffins, bread, cakes, fresh fruits, housemade Gelato, and Sorbet flavors like Choco Alexander, Salted Caramel, Raspberry, and Yuzu Yoghurt.
A must do experience for visitors to Singapore!
It was an amazing experience going to the Lavo Sunday brunch. The price tag is a bit of a sticker shock but considering how expensive alcohol in Singapore is, you’ll be left wondering how this brunch isn’t more expensive. I easily drank $100 SGD worth of Champagne to myself if not more.
Bottomless champagne brunch is a popular thing in Singapore and many of the upscale hotels offer this with similar food buffets and prices. Nevertheless, none have the incredible views that Lavo has. If you’re traveling with a big group of people to Singapore or are a fellow expat living in the city, this is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in the city!
