Chill Out at Altivo Bar, The Jewel Box

August has been a stressful month in terms of work; full of mental blocks and frustrating situations.

Seeing how stressed out I was, hubby offered to bring me 'somewhere' to chill out after dinner. The 'somewhere' turned out to be The Jewel Box at Mount Faber. There are a few dining options at The Jewel Box. We opted for The Altivo which is an alfresco bar which offers a stunning view of the habour and Straits of Sentosa. A pity I didn't bring my camera, had to manage with my mediocre phone camera -_-
The ambience is cosy, with the usual bistro settings coupled with some comfy lounge sofas. Would expect to see more dating couples, but surprised to see some families as well.Still full from dinner, we just ordered dessert and drinks. The Jewel's Peak is an interesting pyramid-shaped vanilla ice-cream with brownie base and garnished with chopped nuts. Summer Breeze is a promotional mocktail, quite tangy and refreshing. Glanced at the menu and interesting to note that besides the usual International Cuisine, local favourites are offered too.

With a live band playing jazzy numbers and sentimental hits, this place is a perfect spot for chill out! Good music, spectacular night view, refreshing cool breeze, exactly what I need to calm myself and gain some sanity.

I must go back there one of these days to try the food.
