Singapore Nightspots

Top Nightspots In Singapore
By Gary Hendricks

Singapore SkylineFancy going down for a jug of beer or dancing the night away? Well, you need not worry in Singapore. The town is full of nightspots which are worth your while. In this article, we cover some of the hottest nightspot areas in Singapore.

Mohammed Sultan Road

This place used to be the hub of all happening nightspots in Singapore. These days, the expatriates and hippies have moved to the three quays (see below) for partying action. That is not to say that the Mohammed Sultan Road (near River Valley Road) is not happening. You can certainly check it out to see various bars and pubs which are quite in vogue.

The Three Quays
The Three Quays? What the heck is that, you ask? Well, it refers to Boat Quay, Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay. In Singapore, these three quays form a loop around the Singapore River and they are packed with nightspots.

Orchard RoadThe most happening order of the day is Clarke Quay and coming in second, Boat Quay. Robertson Quay is more serene area which you may want to visit after 'pub crawling' through the other two areas.

CHIJMES & Nearby
Look up any Singapore map and you'll see a reference to CHIMES, which is essentially a nightspot area formed around a church. A favourite amongst expatriates for its nice locale, you can typically have a nice dinner in one of the restaurants before going on to party the night away.

Chinatown
Chinatown may appear quite seedy to some - and indeed it is so. Here you will find all manner of bars and nightspots which are cheaper than the other places in this list. Watch for the KTV bars which dot the landscape - they are full of neon signs inviting you to go in and sing a tune or two.

Orchard Road
Orchard Road also has its share of nightspots - the most prominent ones near Delfi Orchard. Those with families - be warned - there are typically many hookers in the Delfi Orchard area. If you're uncomfortable with such scenes, make way further down Orchard Road to other nightspots.

Hopefully, this article has given you some insight into what the nightspot scene is like in Singapore. The next time you want to have dinner and dance the night away, come back to this list for some guidance. Happy clubbing and pubbing!
