First impressions: Perched at the top of the newly revamped Suntec City Sky Garden, this spacious open-air terrace bar is stylishly designed, with friendly staff who make you feel like you’ve met them before.
The chosen one: The Viva Brasil ($18) is an enjoyable, revitalising summer cocktail consisting of cachaça (distilled from sugarcane juice), pineapple, agave and house-made rosemary syrup – with a tropical presentation. The sangria ($18) could easily top the list, too, with its a mix of fresh berries, sweet basil and red wine.
The cheapskate: Happy Hour (weekdays from 3pm to 8pm) includes house-pour spirits, draft beers and wines for as low as $10, or pop open a bottle of Viu Manent Sauvignon Blanc for around $60.
Bite on this: The nibbles have Latin American and Mexican influences. We enjoyed the signature Terra Salpicão ($18), cubes of marinated tenderloin beef with sliced garlic, and the seafood chimichanga ($18) – sautéed mussels, squid, prawns, fish and vegetables wrapped in a flour tortilla and deep-fried.
Last but not least: Fancy a boogie, or need a place to host your next birthday bash? Terra can accommodate up to 180 people in both indoor and outdoor areas, and there’s plenty of space for dancing. A centrally located DJ booth spins various tunes, depending on the night.
