Brand New Grand Copthorne Waterfront – Integrated Dining Destination

We had the privilege of being invited to the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel’s media event and were the first to get a sneak peek of their fabulous new space.

After a $17 million makeover which started in November 2015, the hotel is set to wow its guest with a spanking new lobby and a brand new integrated dining destination.

The vibrant and eclectic concept which embodies the best of the East and West is a feast for the senses. Oriental and Western elements are reflected through the decor, lighting, furniture and choice art pieces.

The lobby area comprises four new F&B outlets including Food CapitalGrissiniTempo, and Secret Chat.

Food Capital, an all-day dining buffet restaurant is set to open its doors to the public on 2 June 2016. We had a taste of what would be offered from their interactive open kitchens and were impressed.

The kaleidoscope of tastes, wide range of cuisines and exquisite presentations made for a gastronomical dining experience.

There was a spectacular International spread of seafood, western, Asian and Indian delights to cater to the different tastebuds of both the adults and children.

The kids were drawn to the live pasta station, sushi counter, cold-cuts corner and freshly fried tempura station, gleefully helping themselves to numerous portions.

When it came to the desserts and sweets, they were over the moon. Every morsel was elaborately crafted and some looked too pretty to be eaten.

Add to that the dazzling ambience and great music spun by the resident deejay, everyone was in a terrific mood to enjoy the rest of the evening.

Not only were the teens delighted at the Instagram-worthy buffet spread, they disappeared for a while taking selfies around the lobby.

The colourful decor and spaciousness of the restaurant easily makes this a family-friendly dining option. Kate was having such a swell time that she broke into a dance upon hearing a poplar track.

Situated in the centre of the spacious lobby is Tempo, a dynamic bar with a mixologist crafting adventurous concoctions such as #LOCOTEMPO 61, deconstructed chendol with pandan infused rum. Tempo will be launched on 2 June, along with Food Capital.

The young ones were not forgotten and had their share of non-alcoholic drinks in cool-looking water bottles to keep them happy.

On the other side of the lobby stands Grissini, a contemporary Southern Italian restaurant focusing on premium meats and seafood along with a twist on classic favourites.

Guests can look forward to their Antipasti Bar, Premium Meats & Seafood, Wood-fired Oven Pizzas and fine wines following their launch on 11 June 2016.

Secret Chat, a patisserie for special moments, will be unveiled in the third quarter of the year.

We had a truly unforgettable evening and each time I mention that we are going out for dinner, Kate asks ever so hopefully, “Is it to that nice hotel?”
