The Prince of Wales is a little backpacker bar located at a hostel with the same name, but it's open to everyone and a nice place to pop by for a beer and a chat.
This is not some big fancy upscale place, but a nice laid back bar with a chilled out crowd and the beer is cheap for Singapore standards.
They also have free wifi there if you need to sit and check your mails while sipping a beer.
I always found the staff to be friendly and laid back and it's a place i like to drop by for a beer whenever i am in Singapore.
The wavehouse nightclub on Sentosa Island is one of the trendiest nightclubs in Singapore and even if i am not much of clubber then i must say this place is cool.
It´s situated right on the beach and the place has beach chairs aswell as indoor seating.
They have artificial waves inside the nightclub, so bring your board and surfing gear and surf inside the club when you are there partying.
The place is quite upscale and i must say i normally don´t go to these places and only went there because i was invited by a friend, but it was really cool and i would recommend it to people who wanna come and party in a beach party atmosphere that is still upscle and trendy and full of young and rich people.
Very nice bar right at Clarke Quay. The evening we went it was not very packed and as in every club, it was very cold inside. Be sure to bring a sweater, if you are feeling cold easyly.
Or as realdestinations.com puts it: "Downstairs, you’ll find Bar Cocoon – a venue for lounging, socializing and clubbing with massive opium beds enveloped by silk lanterns and drapery providing a sensuous charm to its relaxing ambience."
Dress Code: By the time we entered, there was noone checking about our clothes. But if you want to get in touch with some lovely girls you have to dress to impress.
I may not have been keen on the Eski Bar, but this place was fabulous. A rooftop bar with a stunning view of the city as its backdrop, Orgo was a fantastic experience. I had the Banana & Cinnamon Martini and it was divine. You can take in a meal or share some tapas. I will definitely be keeping this place on my list of things to do in Singapore!
Dress Code: Dressy
Ok, this is about karaoke but hear me out. This is LIVE karaoke at its best. Actors Pub attracts musicians and singers (and general walk-in-off-the-street-wannabes like me) who just like to hang out, meet some new friends, have a few drinks and sing, and play. Open mic style.
There's a core live band -- ex-professional musicians -- and you name the song and the key they'll back you. If you want to strap on a guitar, or bang the bongos, go for it.
Real friendly bon homie atmosphere, and an easy way to mix with the local crowd and strike up new friendships.
Dress Code: Whatever, lah!
I WAS REALLY -THINKING GOING INTO THIS PLACE TO LISTEN TO THE SINGERS THAT I COULD HEAR EVEN FROM OUTSIDE. . BUT ONCE I OPENED THE DOOR THE CIGARETTE SMOK WAS SO THICK I QUICKLY CHANGED MY MIND AND STAYED OUTSIDE AND ENJOYED THE SINGING FROM THERE..
Dress Code: CASUAL !!!!!!!!!
Parkview Square is one of the more expensive office buildings in Singapore and it is situated along North Bridge Road.
The exterior surface of the building is clad in brown branite, bronze, lacquer, and glass and at night time you can see sculptures and statues surrounding the open plaza all lit up.
There are bronze effigies of famous people like Sun Yat-sen, Abraham Lincoln, Salvador Dalí, Mozart, Chopin, Isaac Newton, Picasso, Rembrandt, Shakespeare, Plato, Dante, Winston Churchill and Albert Einstein.
This really isn't a good tip but a goofy tip. Travellers visiting Singapore now, why not see Singapore Idol on TV. I was hoping Geraldine would go farther than she did even though her singing, though better than everyday people, wasn't too good. Rahimah and and Gail Nerva can sing, but Gail was cut a few days ago.
Isn't it silly that I'm following the results even though I can't get Singapore Idol in North America. I have to rely on the shows that I saw in June and then see the webpage to see who got eliminated.
EDIT: Rahimah is out. But Jasmine is still in the running! (as of mid August, 2006)
EDIT: There are only 4 remaining contestants. Jasmine is the only girl, the other 3 are boys. (as of Sept. 5)
EDIT: Jasmine just got voted off (Sept. 14th)
EDIT: Hady Mirza won it, yesterday. I did not see the boys show originally so to me, he's just a name. Good luck, Hady.
EDIT: This tip is old, I know. It's kept just for historical purposes. Please don't rate it low, just skip over it.
If you're not Chinese, I don't recommend you come here to socialise, but wifey and I enjoyed it because it was so different. Live 'canto-pop' bands, and some strange drinking rituals going around. It seemed there was a competition to buy the biggest bottle of Scotch (mostly Chivas Regal) - there were a few ordered that looked like 10 gallons ! All were dispatched with sparklers and great ceremony. There were a lot of absolutely smashed people there.
Highly entertaining for people-watching, but not a fun night out in the traditional sense.
Damned expensive drinks - 26 dollars for 2 beers !
Dress Code: Smart Casual / Glamorous
Loof is one of the coolest placest in Singapore to hang out. Located on 3rd floor of Odeon Tower it is embedded in the skyline of Singapura. Great view, nice layout and conveniently located.
Dress Code: It is open air and therefore not as cold as the other nightspots. But don't forget that it is a popular spot. Dressing up is not needed but leave your bermudas and flip flops at home.
The Crazy Elephant is a small but lively bar at Clarke Quay. I think they have daily live performances every night from 10pm onwards and when I went there they had a very good band of Australians and Philippino's playing blues and rock & roll.
Somewhat older crowd (40+) and a lot of British expats. Service is good and they have decent collection of beers. Be prepared to pay Western prices as with the other establishments at Clarke Quay.
Bar Opiume is located at the Indochine Waterfront restaurant next to the Asian Civilization Museum.
One of my top three favourite nightlife spots in Singapore; come here on Friday/Saturday evening, grab one of the leather sofa's outside, order a martini and sip it slowly while listening to the songs of Nat King Cole and Tony Bennett sung live.
I love to sit outside as it is right at the Singapore river in front of the Central Business District, and I could swear the reflections of the lights on the skyscrapers behind me sway to Nat King Cole's L-O-V-E ... but then again it could be the martini's :)
You've visiting sentosa as part of your itinerary in singapore. You're done with all the attractions in sentosa, you're tired, thirsty and maybe even hungry so, where do you go? Why not drop by at cafe del mar singapore, have a pina colada while you watch the sunset? Like all cafe del mar chains, cafe del mar singapore (located at siloso beach, sentosa) lets you chill out with ambient music playing in the background while you watch the sunset. Though the view may not be as fantastic as the view in cafe del mar Ibiza (Because a port is nearby, you can see ships in the sea) nevertheless, it's a good place for chilling out.
P/s: You can also take a dip in their pool if you've brought you swimsuit along.
A group of friends opened that Wine Bar to have a place to enjoy a decent glass of red wine. You still feel the personal touch inside Wine Arcade. The have a nice selection of red wines for average prices. The only bothering thing is the crappy band they have.
Dress Code: The crowd is between 30 and 50 years old. But there is no dress code applied.
