An early evening starting point: Bamboo Bar at the Oriental Hotel
Okay, so this is an evening spot, and a one to one and a half hour filler before moving on somewhere else. Live jazz and blues singer lassie kicks it all off around 8.00pm and she is pretty powerful in her voice projection. The point of this place is that you are known to be drinking where the likes of Noel Coward, nobby types of authors and the occasional thespian have been.
So it's an "oooo we've done the Bamboo Bar in the Oriental Hotel" story generating place, and then you go off wittering endlessly on about what you did in the rest of the evening. Drinks are pricey, keeps the binge drinkers out.
Get there for early evening as a start to the romantic build up... and as it's by the river in the Oriental you are set up to kick on from here. (By the way, when I become rich famous and dashing. I touched the door handle on the right.... so you know. You may want to touch the same handle and, well, oh never mind...)
Dress Code: Smart casual. No day shorts / vests as is the dress code for the rest of the Oriental.
And quite rightly so, my dear fellows.

Oriental Hotel: How to start your evening
Have a Singapore Sling (or Mai Tai) at the exclusive Oriental's Terrace. You can be picked up at your shabby hostel by a limo, they also have a nice buffet.
Dress Code: Dress nicely not to be the odd wo/man out, but there's no specific dress code
