Singapore's best hotel / bar - The Majestic Hotel
If you can't stay here (it can get pricey), try the bar. The bar is actually divided into three floors representing a tree (or a forest - I really don't remember thanks to all the martinis). The first floor has the main bar and lounge with a green roof representing the roots of the tree. The second floor boasts a number of booths facing a DJ station with leaves on the walls. The third floor is open to the sky (when weather permits).
The martini menu is deep and really, really good. I really don't think about martinis when I think about Singapore - but this bar changed my mind. I tried about half the martini menu (hence my vague recollection of the room) and thought the Lychee Martini was the best - topped off with, as you guessed, two fresh lychees instead of olives.
The Hotel also has a really, really good chinese restaurant. Go for the whole fish (actually, always go for the whole fish in Singapore). Also had some kind of chili chicken which was amazing.
The 30 rooms are all designed uniquely - ask about their most requested room. I can't say the name on this site (my parents read what I write). You'll get it.

The Indochine restaurant and bar on the banks of the Singapore River. Food isn't the best in the city, but the atmosphere and view of the river and lights are knockout.
An after dinner Absynthe (yes!) at the Majestic Bar - picture a DJ spinning in the background and you get the point.
Vegetable spring rolls that are very similar to Vietnamese, except the chili sauce is more Chinese...
I recently spent a week in the city. A week that was highlighted by consuming 6 whole fish and 3 crabs washed down with a variety of beer, martinis, and (of course) the Singapore Sling.
