The impressive wine list featuring a wide selection of wines from around the world has had wine lovers making a beeline to/heading to Lavo. New wines are featured each quarter in the restaurant and wine bar.
“Lavo will be our main all-day dining outlet, and we’re especially proud of Lavo’s wine cellar. There is no place quite like Lavo in Tropicana, where friends and families can unwind in style, comfort and revel in great food, exceptional wine and good taste,” said M Group Director, Benson Tay.

Made For More isn’t just our tagline. It’s our school of thought. Experience it with us,” Tay added.
Lavo’s grand opening was hosted by Hansen Lee and Julie Woon. It kicked off with a mesmerizing LED Water Drum performance that raised energy levels, and created a visual spectacle of light, colour and the dynamic fluidity of water, that had guests clamoring for more.
A fashion show by 176 Avenue, brought edgy fashion choices within reach and showcased Lavo’s suitability as an event venue par excellence.
Guests were entertained by the performance of Winnie K, who kick started her career by winning the Asia Bagus competition and is now active in the Indonesian entertainment scene.
Guests enjoyed finger foods, canapes and nibbles courtesy of Lavo’s kitchen.
The selection of wines received much praise from guests for the quality, and uniqueness.
“Lavo has been generating buzz with a growing number of regulars, since its soft opening in June. We are thankful for the support and will be organizing more activities for patrons and adding on to our creative menu. With Lavo as our third act, our plans for M Group are coming together perfectly. We will be introducing more concepts soon, so stay tuned.” Tay explained.
