This October, prepare for a terrifyingly delicious evening as W Singapore – Sentosa Cove transforms the kitchen table’s temporary abode into a bloodcurdling waterfront slaughterhouse for an exclusive one-evening haunting on the Butcher’s Halloween. On 31 October 2020, beware of the Butcher’s rampant cleaver lest you join his selection of choice steaks hanging from the gallows. Sink your teeth into a communal sharing set menu, starring prime cuts from the Butcher’s macabre collection, and the freshest catch, courtesy of the unfortunate sailors who’d ventured off the South China Sea and onto the Butcher’s stamping ground. To end it all, take a hack at fate with the Butcher and stand to chance to win a night’s stay in W Singapore’s Fabulous Room.
For $188++, diners can enjoy the full works including food, cocktails, shots and bottomless bubbly. A food only feast can also be enjoyed at SGD138++.
