Planning to charm the literal socks off your date? Hit up these sultry dining spots, where the music sets the right mood, the lighting is always dim and romantic, and the menu offers aphrodisiac food. These certainly help make for a charming night – and lay the groundwork for having some post-meal activities. And get your head out of the gutter – we’re talking about moving on to these sexy bars around town to continue the romantic evening. 

RECOMMENDED: The most romantic places in Singapore

  • Restaurants
  • Steakhouse
  • City Hall

WHAT IS IT A modern steakhouse at Raffles Hotel Singapore that puts a twist on the usual chophouse finds. And don’t expect the usual cliches of white tablecloths and starched uniforms; the experience here is fun, sexy, and mysterious. 

SEX APPEAL It gets its vibe from the cobalt blue walls, juxtaposed against dark wood panels, floors, and tables. Cosy dining nooks and dim lighting help lend more drama, and the adjoining grand cellar even comes with over 200 labels of wine to help toast to a sultry night ahead.

  • City Hall

WHAT IS IT Colony at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore offers lavish buffet spreads, served in an elegant setting. 

SEX APPEAL Maps with old cursive, old black and white photographs, and postcards hung strategically to section off the dining room into intimate little nooks. Ask for seats at one of their booths – it feels a lot like you've booked into a cabin in a luxury steam train.

  • Chinese
  • City Hall

WHAT IS IT Housed in The NCO Club, Madame Fan is a sexy Chinese restaurant by Alan Yau, the restaurateur behind the Wagamama brand in the United Kingdom. Here, traditional, comforting flavours of the cuisine come presented in a sleek, stylish environment. 

SEX APPEAL The cabaret-inspired space comes decorated with sensual touches – intimate table settings, plush carpet, and romantic lighting. 

  • Restaurants
  • Tanjong Pagar

WHAT IS IT A seafood-focused restaurant and grill bar by chef Andrew Walsh (of Butchers Boy and Bao Boy fame). The playful menu spotlights the freshest catch, dressed in a variety of cooking styles that are always unexpected, and scrumptious. 

SEX APPEAL This is one catfish we wouldn’t mind encountering. The high ceiling lets in plenty of natural light when the sun is up, while lush potted plants and olive finishings bring out a soothing, tropical charm. At sundown, the lights are dimmed, and the 43-seater eatery turns into a cosy, romantic hideout.

  • Marina Bay

WHAT IS IT The Singapore outpost of mod-Chinese restaurant, Mott32. Dining here is a sexy, luxurious affair, with drama running through both the interior and food. Ring ahead to reserve the iconic applewood roasted duck ($108), or sample parcels of plump siew mai ($9 for two) stuffed with Iberico pork and soft-boiled quail egg. 

SEX APPEAL The restaurant is opulently decorated by starchitect Joyce Wang, who is known for her award-winning interiors. Peacock chairs, apothecary drawers, and overhanging Chinese lanterns nod to the restaurant’s oriental roots, while industrial finishings and mod furniture like plush mint sofas give the dimly lit dining room a contemporary allure.

  • Tanjong Pagar

WHAT IS IT Cloudstreet is a pure expression of who chef Rishi Naleendra is. The food served is a remix of his memories and heritage; it’s apparent from the first bite, where grilled oysters come swimming in a pool of coconut milk, right down to the underrated bread course mixed with local stout and liquorice. 

SEX APPEAL From the moment you step foot into Cloudstreet, the seductive painting of a woman in a state of undress beckons you. The cavernous space is dark, sensual, and lush – decked out in magnificent floral arrangements and an eclectic mix of furniture, all armed to charm.

  • Japanese
  • Marina Bay

WHAT IS IT Koma is almost like a portal to Japan. Step through the torii gates to enter a cavernous dining hall, complete with a footbridge and reflecting pool. If you can, draw your eyes away from the austerity of the space and focus your attention on the menu, which offers everything from sashimi to tempura. 

SEX APPEAL The stunning Japanese restaurant captures the sights, and even mythology, within its expansive four walls. Grab a seat under hushed lighting and admire all the sleek, smooth details that the 230-seater place has to offer – from ornate golden fans to red-clad motifs.

  • Raffles Place
  • price 2 of 4

WHAT IS IT This well-loved izakaya might have since closed its Keong Saik outlet, but Neon Pigeon has since found a new coop along Carpenter Street. Expect mod-jam sharing plates and cocktails to boot. 

SEX APPEAL Raw concrete furnishing and mood lighting help lend a crunchy charm to the space. Walls come splashed with edgy graffiti art, and the raw bar serves up seasonal catch of Kumamoto oysters ($16 for two), and more.
