#1 Dine under the stars in a dome

We can all agree that CHIJMES is one of the most romantic spots in Singapore. With its beautiful architecture and scenic surroundings, we can’t think of a more apt location to celebrate Valentine’s Day! 

Here’s something even more romantic: you can enjoy a one-of-a-kind Dome Dining Under The Stars with your sweetheart. Situated in the heart of CHIJMES at The Lawn, each dome will be beautifully furnished with ambience lighting and cosy lounge chairs for the ultimate private celebration. Of course, dinner and drinks will be served so you can tuck into a delicious meal for two from Senor Taco’s special Valentine’s Day menu (from $120++ for 2 persons). 

Psst…you can also bring your friends along for a group date – the dome accommodates up to 6 persons.


Dome Dining Under The Stars is available from 10-28 February at 12pm-3pm, 5pm-11pm (Mon-Thu); 12pm-11pm (Fri-Sun). Limited slots so book early here. Walk-ins based on availability.
