Oozing sophistication, opulence and refinement, Rakes in the new Singapore hotspot for partygoers who enjoy the finer things in the club scene. This theatrical, Las Vegas-styled bottle service club creates an immersive and sensual experience of opulent decadence and debauchery.
Entering the club is like no other, as you are led through a tunnel where four individual floor-to-ceiling ‘rooms’ let you walk a path beyond the normal realm. Throughout your journey, expect whimsical theatricality and exotic performances that will heighten your senses and pique your curiosity.
As there is light at the end of every tunnel, nothing will brighten your eyes more than the elegant in-house Champagne room that holds up to 1,100 bottles – the first of its kind for Singapore. Upon order, chilled bottles of Champagne can be delivered to your table – no waiting required.
An extensive Champagne list has been created and on the list of premium Champagnes include Dom Perignon, Ruinart Blanc de Blanc and Ruinart Rose, as well as limited edition Veuve Clicquot Yellow Constellation Jeroboam, and the extremely rare 30-litre Armand de Brignac Champagne that has never been purchased in Singapore.
There are eight private VIP booths tastefully upholstered in rich black vinyl that overlook the dance floor. The VIP booths are positioned against the longest LED screen in all clubs across Asia that lines the walls and ceiling of the club.
Specially designed by famed Lighting Director Steve Lieberman, multiple award-winner for “Best Lighting” by Club World Awards and co-ordinator of top U.S. nightclubs and music festivals, the interactive lighting system at Rakes evolves with the music – creating an immersive experience on the dance floor like no other.
When bottles of Champagne are ordered the bottle servers steel the show, as they make their way to the VIP booth the club darkens and black mirror balls drape from the reflective LED ceiling that ignite the booth with a stunning lighting display.
Surrounding the club at each end are two faceted backlit bars, serving a range of premium spirits such as Belvedere vodka, Hendrick’s gin and Patrón Platinum tequila.
Headlining Rakes’ DJ line-up is Entertainment Director, Patrick Oliver, formerly of Pangaea, and current resident DJ of international F1 circuit party brand Podium Lounge.
The music selection at Rakes is vast and revolves around a mix of the latest and greatest club music that will certainly get the party started. There won’t be a particular focus on one genre, but it’s safe to say with the best international DJs and undeniably spirited theatrical performances, your night will be in capable hands.
