ARK 11

Time Out says

Nightclubs in Singapore are a dime a dozen, but even the most experienced party veterans have yet to see anything like ARK 11 – the first sci-fi themed club on the Little Red Dot. Opening on September 22, this futuristic new nightlife spot boasts interiors that closely resemble that of a spaceship, along with an AI bartender and 4D elements.

Parked high on the 11th floor of Orchard Central, ARK 11 stays true to its theme right from the get-go, with a steely entrance designed to look just like a space shuttle’s doors. A mysterious blue-lit inner corridor with reminiscent of a space tunnel is your gateway to the intergalactic adventure that awaits. 

The main party space sprawls over 8,000 square feet, where night owls revel against a backdrop of high-tech control panels and glowing nebula patterns that dance in the dark. But what takes the cake in this Star Wars-esque setting is a striking red animatronic heart encased behind glass panels, which pulsates in sync with each thumping beat. The squeamish need not worry – this cool fixture is more sleek than it is morbid-looking, and in fact represents human connections and a celebration of life.

The AI aspect here comes in the form of the bar – or rather, the bartenders, which are powered by artificial intelligence. Aside from serving you the best concoctions, these clever bad boys also come with mesmerising visual displays that are a real treat for the eyes.

If you’re wondering how ARK 11 manages to make everything so hyper realistic and immersive, it’s because this novel concept was dreamt up by the creative minds behind Universal Studios Singapore. We can definitely see similar “theme park” elements at work in this innovative party playground.
