Singapore’s top 10 Drinking Spots

The art deco flying wine fairy@Divine Bar ‘Gotham’ city.

We all know Singapore’s favorite spot for propping up the bar is The Long Bar, Raffles Hotel. Throw those peanut shells, bite that Sling cherry & revel in Hemingway’s old haunt. It’s all a must do. But if the night is still young, check-out some of these little gem’s too…..

1) 1 Altitude The world’s highest al fresco rooftop bar. $20 entry including a free cocktail. It’s the best skyline vantage spot to get views OF (and not stood upon) Ku De Ta and the iconic Marina Bay Sands.  

2) ‘The Bridge’ – Clarke Quay. Put any snobbery you have about drinking at bus stops aged 15 aside, and appreciate that for teenagers/clubbers alike this is as alternative as SG gets. A scenic pre & post drinking spot to sip those 7Eleven bought beers. Mock it, but it’s packed every weekend.

3) Screening Room, Ann Siang Hill – A leafy green 4th story roof terrace perfectly placed over Club Street. The MTV Cribs style cinema plays classic flicks for free most weeknights with nostalgic themes like ‘Audry Hepburn’ and ‘Robert De ‘Nero’ week.

4) 54 Bar, Boat Quay – Bit of a dive bar and extremely well hidden, but the view for the 2nd story smoking balcony is THE most secret spot to view MBS. Shh!

5) Mad Men Attic Bar- North Canal Road. Hidden down an alley off Circular Road this rocks the urban after work drinks vibe, with delish truffle fries.

6) 28HKS Hong Kong Street, Chinatown. One of the founders of the ‘underground’ speakeasy scene, 28 gets hipster points for having a ‘secret’ reservation number, and brand-less garage door. It’s actually rather more lovely and less pretentious than it wants to be.

7) Olde Cuban Cigar Bar– Trengganu Road. Perched above the busiest cross section of bustling Chinatown, this slice of Havana is brilliantly out of context. The ‘gentleman’s club’ style interior boasts a glass ‘cigar’ vault. And yes indoor smoking is allowed.

8) Blue Jazz Cafe – Bali Lane, Arab Street. Famed for it’s sheesha pipes and Haji lane location, Blue Jazz hosts poetry slams, acoustic gigs, and the popular  standup comedy night; Fight Comic.

9) Coq N Balls – Tiong Bahru. Singapore’s funkiest neighborhood, namely as I live there :) It has to be praised for it’s  daring name on the delightfully qwerky Kim Tian Road. 

10 ) Training Shed – Labrador Park. Giving Tanjong Beach Club as run for it’s money as THE place to be for a Sunday afternoon session. So hot off the press I haven’t even checked it out yet… so it’s next on the list!

    I’m extremely sad that I didn’t know about your blog before I went to Singapore last year. I guess I’ll just have to go back :) Really digging your blog!

Connecting to %s : The Anantasin is the name of a shipwreck just of the coast of the Sensi Parasise, Mae Haad Bay, Koh Tao, Thailand. It’s one of my many favorite places.

Lit.tle: Just because it’s cute.
