Recently launched at Marina One by 1855 F&B Pte Ltd, The Spot is a multi-concept venue that comprises an all-day dining, café, restaurant, bar and an accompanying cigar lounge where everything you need in a busy day has been anticipated and readied.
This is further strengthened by strategic partnerships with award-winning wine retailer 1855 The Bottle Shop and celebrated whisky marque The Macallan. Located alongside one another within a 5,000 sqft space, each partner operates autonomously but in close cooperation to create a flawless, holistic “day to night” experience.
The Spot itself occupies an area of roughly 3500-sq-ft. Its different concepts, tied together through purpose and meticulous design, create an ‘every day’ venue in every sense of the word: not only ‘morphing’ in mood and ambience to perfectly suit the time of day, but offering a full range of food, bar bites, coffee, cocktail, wine and whisky to nourish, sustain, soothe, seduce and delight you throughout the entire day – every day.
DFS Group, the world’s leading luxury travel retailer, has opened a spectacular new wines and spirits flagship duplex store – the first of its kind in the world – at Singapore’s Changi Airport Terminal 3 .
At 11,400 square feet across two floors, the store is DFS Group’s largest single retail space for wines, spirits and tobacco. The opening of the store marks a milestone in DFS’ leadership and innovation in retail, and the realization of a new vision for retail at Changi Airport.
Designed by Masamichi Katayama, the award-winning interior designer and founder of design firm Wonderwall, the store showcases the luxury retailer’s full assortment of wines, spirits and tobacco in a visually dramatic store environment and façade inspired by flowing water and undulating shapes. Within the store, warm and modern design elements accentuated by a double-height atrium measuring over eight meters high provides an inviting shopping and tasting environment for travellers.
Amongst the store’s most innovative features are expanded common areas designed especially for lifestyle and cultural experiences. This includes a Raffles Long Bar – in collaboration with one of Singapore’s most historical landmarks, the Raffles Hotel - the ground-floor atrium tasting bars and a private lounge. The Long Bar will serve its famed cocktail invention, the original Singapore Sling. These common areas also provide space for guided tastings and a monthly program of exciting and interactive activities, featuring master classes for cocktail mixology, bartending and hosting at home.
In the new duplex store, DFS also introduces Changi’s first branded boutiques for wines and spirits, situated on the second floor. Nine brands – Absolut, Dom Pérignon, Glenfiddich, Hendrick’s, Hennessy, Johnnie Walker, The Macallan, Martell, and Penfolds – will showcase their heritage and their finest products within individually-designed boutiques, from the travel trunk-inspired Johnnie Walker House to the Glenfiddich boutique’s cellar and cask design. The store will also host visits from master distillers, blenders and brand ambassadors throughout the year, and unveil worldwide product launches for these nine brands.
