Many a times, special occasions are celebrated surrounding food and the consumption of a meal. The most common of these is going out to dine to celebrate an occasion such as a birthday or an anniversary. This has become a popular way to celebrate such occasions. Restaurants, cafés and hotels offer special dining privileges catered towards such celebratory moments.
When choosing a dining venue to celebrate a particular occasion, it is essential to understand that not every venue will choose every occasion. Therefore, whichever dining experience you wish to choose, it should cater well to the special moment that it will witness.
Laid-back venues are those that are quite informal in nature and has a relaxed feel. Such venues usually do not have strict dress codes or rules. These includes local pubs and bars, and the occasional outdoor café. A pub or a bar is the most likely venue to be chosen to celebrate the most recent win of your friend’s favourite football team. It may also play host to the commencement of many a bachelor’s parties or be chosen in celebrating the end of college semester exams. Such a venue is ideal for informal get-togethers.
Bistros and diners
Venues such as bistros and diners are less laid-back than the local pub house, but they do require a certain standard of conduct and attire. Private dining in Singapore is most likely not available, and therefore, such venues are ideal for small family celebrations such as the first day of kindergarten, and other similar small-scale milestones.
Diners offer a wide range of meals that emphasize a more fast food choice of menu, and may include such items as milkshakes and burgers.
Fine dining restaurants
Fine dining restaurants are sophisticated venues that require pre-booking and reservations. The most exclusive restaurants may even have waiting lists. Such a venue would be the ideal place at which to celebrate important milestones such as an anniversary or a quiet birthday dinner for two. Whether they serve high-end Italian food or the best quality sushi, a fine dining restaurant will always ensure high standards with their food and the ingredients used, as well as with the atmosphere of the venue.
Strict attire forbids any casual wear such as flip flops or shorts. The best liquors are served alongside the gastronomic meals, and the price paid is equally astronomical. However, the experience itself is indeed valuable, as it will add to the memorable nature of the occasion.
