Marina Bay Sands is possibly Singapore's most iconic hotel. It is distinguished by a three-acre park set impressively on top of the three buildings. And on this SkyPark is Singapore's hottest restaurant and bar, CÉ LA VI, made even more famous as one of the sets of opulence in Kevin Kwan's novel turned movie Crazy Rich Asians.

CÉ LA VI is derived from the French saying c'est la vie which means "That's life." Born in Southeast Asia, the CÉ LA VI group is inspired by the region's art, as revealed in carvings, paintings and temples, and seeks to express that creative legacy in its venues. CÉ LA VI's global locations include Dubai, Shanghai and Taiwan. With the opening of the new Tokyu Plaza Shibuya last December 2019, Tokyo joins the list.

CÉ LA VI Tokyo channels the spirit of the restaurant and bar at the Marina Bay Sands. The 17th and 18th floors of the new Tokyu Plaza Shibuya is an outdoor oasis with sweeping views of the heart of a bustling city. Get a rooftop view of the famous Shibuya crossing without getting caught in the scramble, sipping delectable cocktails in the bar.

CÉ LA VI's luxury restaurant in Tokyo dishes up contemporary Asian cuisine and the most exquisite flavor combinations. The lunch set menu, for instance, features an oxtail 'pho' soup with charred tomato crostini and vietnamese herbs, while the dinner set menu includes a crispy kinmedai, a lemongrass emulsion with choo chee vegetables and toasted coconut.

In the daytime, enjoy sunshine and greenery. At night, the same space transforms into Tokyo's trendiest hang out and one of the best locations to view the city's lights

Getting there

CÉ LA VI is on the 17th and 18th floor of the new Tokyu Plaza Shibuya. It is a two minute walk from the West Exit of JR Shibuya Station.
