Anticipation builds as you enter the club and be led through an experience tunnel where four individual floor-to-ceiling “rooms” let you venture beyond the ordinary realm. Expect whimsical theatricality and exotic performances that will heighten your senses and pique your curiosity.
At the end of the experience tunnel is an elegant in-house champagne room that holds up to 1,100 bottles—the first of its kind for Singapore, ensuring chilled bottles of champagne delivered to your table upon order—no waiting required. Available on our list of premium champagnes are Dom Perignon, Ruinart Blanc de Blanc and Ruinart Rose, as well as limited edition Veuve Clicquot Yellow Constellation Jeroboam, and the extremely rare 30-litre Armand de Brignac champagne that has never been purchased in Singapore.
Once inside, draw your attention to the dance floor, encircled by eight private VIP booths upholstered with rich, black vinyl, against Asia’s longest LED screen that lines the walls and ceiling of the club. Specially designed by famed Lighting Director Steve Lieberman, multiple award-winner for “Best Lighting” by Club World Awards and co-ordinator of top U.S. nightclubs and music festivals, the interactive lighting system at Rakes evolves with the music - creating an immersive experience on the dance floor like no other.
Suspended from the reflective LED ceiling are black mirror balls that ignite the VIP booth with visually stunning lighting when guests order bottles of champagne. The club darkens, and bottle servers steal the show as they make their way through the crowd towards the booth. Surrounding the club at each end are two faceted backlit bars, serving a range of premium spirits such as Belvedere vodka, Hendrick’s gin and Patrón Platinum tequila.
Over at the DJ podium, granite dance platforms line the wall against a sultry backdrop of sleek, leather details. Headlining Rakes’ DJ line-up is Entertainment Director, Patrick Oliver, formerly of Pangaea, and current resident DJ of international F1 circuit party brand Podium Lounge.
With the best international DJ acts and undeniably spirited theatrical performances for a fully immersive experience, it’s safe to assume that your night will be in capable hands.
