1919 Restaurant - Full Left Day

1919 Waterboat House
Housed in a 1919 -hence the name- colonial building and national monument, it is the blend of romantic Art Deco elements and modern statement decor of the newly restored 1919 Waterboat House that makes it a stunning wedding venue. Its focus is on fresh ocean catches that are prepared using classic and modern French culinary techniques, plus a carefully curated wine list from its bespoke bar.  Afterwards, take the party upstairs to the open-air Rooftop which offers panoramic views of the Marina Bay and cityscape, as well as its signature cocktails, craft beers and savoury bites.

The 1919 Waterboat House and the Rooftop will officially open on 19th November 2015, at 3 Fullerton Road. Also visit www.1919waterboathouse.com or email hello@nineteen-nineteen.com.
