Singapore's Marina Bay Sands Welcomes Burgeoning New Burger Chain


Marina Bay Sands, Singapore's architecturally iconic hotel-casino resort on the bay, continues to introduce new options to its vast lineup of food-and-beverage outlets. Earlier this month, the 2,560-room complex introduced New York City's Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer to the Singapore populace. The opening marks the Asia debut for the chain, which went from a 15-seat gourmet burger joint in SoHo just three years ago to seven restaurants around the world today -- including a spot in the Venetian Las Vegas, also owned by Las Vegas Sands Corp.

The 140-seat restaurant offers its acclaimed burgers, craft beers and over-the-top CrazyShake milkshakes, in addition to salads, vegan options and, soon, items unique to Singapore. More than 15 shakes are on the menu at the CrazyShake bar. The adult-beverage bar includes 20 craft beers, including local brews, and a variety of signature cocktails.

Resort officials are also working with TAO Group to develop Marquee Singapore, a nightclub that will anchor a new multiconcept dining-and-entertainment complex, scheduled to debut in 2019. This will mark the first Asian location for the Marquee brand as well.

The club will replace one of the two theaters at the resort, covering a three-floor area and featuring 70-foot-high ceilings. A full-sized Ferris wheel will operate inside the venue, providing nightclub views to all who climb aboard.

TAO debuted the original Marquee Nightclub in New York City in 2003, and has since added branches in Las Vegas and Sydney, Australia. The Singapore club in development is Marina Bay's second collaboration with TAO Group, following the opening early this year of LAVO Italian Restaurant & Rooftop Bar.
