Singapore Nightlife & Entertainment

What used to be a boring place preoccupied with business and making money is now a vibrant entertainment hub: The Lion City is dazzling at night.

While Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay is host to serious entertainment with regular theatre and music performances, you can party your nights away from Boat Quay via Clarke Quay to Robertson Quay. See Live Music & Films and Nightlife for more details.

Here are some suggested bars and clubs for all occasions, intertwined with a maxi pub-crawl:

  • Zouk
    Repeatedly voted 'Best Nightclub of the Year', this danceclub houses three venues in one, offering four distinct experiences.
  • The nightly laser show at Marina Bay Sands.  <span style='white-space:nowrap;'><img src='http://www.guidegecko.com/images/spyglass1.png' align='texttop' /> Click to enlarge</span>
    eM by the river and Timbre
    Perfect for lazy days and evenings with friends, eM is an ideal café cum bar for conversation amidst sensual lounge tunes. Timbre is further downstream on the river, and a household name for live music.
  • Taboo
    A nightclub hit amongst the gay and lesbian community, offering theme nights and affordable drinks.
  • St. James Powerstation
    Just before the bridge to Sentosa, nine different bars and clubs, one cover charge, and probably the hottest Paraguayan band in Singapore.
  • St. James Powerstation has nine different bars and clubs with one cover charge.  <span style='white-space:nowrap;'><img src='http://www.guidegecko.com/images/spyglass1.png' align='texttop' /> Click to enlarge</span>
    The Penny Black and Harry's Bar
    Penny Black is a Victorian pub with expat regulars abusing happy hour privileges, and the perfect start for a River Area pub crawl. Next door is Harry's, known for its live jazz performances. Continue the pub crawl along Boat Quay up the river, or skip the more touristy places and head on straight to Clarke Quay.
  • Clarke Quay
    Singapore's nightlife hot spot, Clarke Quay boasts a number of fancy bars, nightclubs and often overpriced restaurants. Dance the night away, then head over to Robertson Quay to end your night with a chill out drink by the river.

Most bars & clubs try to be uber-fancy, atmospheric (and somewhat run-down) hang-outs are hard to find
