July 2015, Our Afternoon visit for refreshments After lunch at the Raffles Courtyard (Please see also review.) and shopping at Raffles City, we were thirsty and We looked for refreshments at the Lobby Court of the Swissotel The Stamford. || LOBBY COURT || @ SWISSOTEL THE STAMFORD || SINGAPORE || OUR VISIT || OUR MALAYSIA AND SINGAPORE HOLIDAY IN JULY 2015 || by UggBoy UggGirl, on Flickr The Stamford was the highest hotel in the world, when it opened its doors for the first time. It still looks magnificent and fits in perfectly well with the cityscape of Singapore. The hotel incl. the Raffles City complex which also incl. the Fairmont Singapore was designed by architect I.M. Pei. Having visited previously the hotel we knew already the New Asia and Intro Bar, so we thought it was time to try a new outlet. The Lobby Court is located on the ground floor and is a place to see and be seen. The entrance and check-in are located on the same level. The atmosphere was moody with dark furniture and low lightning. To give it a more cosy feeling there were shelves with books and vases and a bar area. The seating was lounge style. We were brought to one of the sofas by a nice waitress. We chose a bottle of still water and two mocktails, the melon cooler and the devil mango. Our drinks were memorable and we felt refreshed. The waitress was attentive and must have overheard we discussed Singapore celebrating 50 years of independence, because she showed us a special glass, that commemorated it and was on sale. It was shaped like the Merlion. There was no visible opening to fill it, so the waitress showed us how you could do it (removing the Merlion's head) and after the head was put on again, a straw could be entered through the Merlion's nostril. It was a novelty and cute. We liked it very much. Our bill was delivered promptly and was 35.31 SGD (ca. 23.45 Euro or 24.95 USD). When at Raffles City and looking for some high quality refreshments we would visit again the Lobby Court. Would we recommend this outlet to a friend? YES! Would we want to visit again this outlet in our future? YES!
