Top 10 Ways to Celebrate Singapore’s 58th Birthday

If you’re wondering what to do this National Day, here are some ideas where you can enjoy some good food and drinks while soaking in the nationalistic atmosphere this 9th August or for the whole week. Any reason is a good reason to gather your friends and celebrating Singapore’s 58th birthday is definitely a good one!

1. Catch the National Day fireworks at CÉ LA VI Singapore

CÉ LA VI Singapore presents the National Day Fiesta, complete with electric, rhythmic beats from resident live DJs and fun kid-friendly temporary tattoos. Feast upon the best of Singapore’s cuisine with delicious shareable grill platters and live food stations featuring local favourites, including succulently-grilled Satays, freshly steamed Tutu Kuehs and chewy Muah Chee, while anticipating the magnificent firework displays later in the evening.

Tickets are priced at S$48++ with a complimentary pour.

For more information, please visit CÉ LA VI’s website.

2. Drink chilli-infused brew at Lion Brewery Co

For the Nation’s 58th birthday, Lion Brewery Co will be launching an exciting new brew, Api Pils. Specially created with Singapore in mind, the chilli-infused brew pushes the boundaries of Lion Brewery Co’s craft.

Singapore is synonymous with heat; in terms of temperature and flavours. Their Api Pils celebrates the spicy flavours and is perfect for a hot day. Here, fresh chillies are baked and dried out in the hot sun, then carefully infused into a classic Lion Brewery Co Pilsner. The aroma of the red peppers makes for a refreshing change from the usual hop bouquet, and tiny tendrils of heat linger on an otherwise crisp finish.

Celebrate Singapore together with Lion Brewery Co this National Day with a chilled, spicy glass or pint of Api Pils. Prices start at S$8.00 for a 180ml glass, S$12.00 for 355ml, S$12.80 for a Happy Hour Pint, and S$16.00 for 473ml.
