Drinking cheap in Singapore

Jump to last reply

Singapore is by far the most expensive place to drink in Southeast Asia and probably one of the most expensive worldwide. It's not that alcohol is overly expensive but because of high rental, restaurants and bars jerk up their prices three-fold at least. That doesn't mean that you can't find some gems in the city to drink cheap. I've listed some of my favourites below. You can read more on my blog with addresses and maps: www.asiaescapades.wordpress.com.

Drinks & Co: My weekend drinking hole. This place just opened about a year ago I think and it's completely packed every single weekend. It's practically impossible to find a table unless you know people and make a booking. Why is the place popular? Heck, they have the cheapest bottles in town. A bottle of scotch (Chivas 12) goes for $65. That same bottle would cost you in excess of $180 at any other joint.

Emerald Hill: The Emerald Hill stretch and its three bars have been around for years now, and they continue to attract the afterwork crowd every night. Ice Cold Beer is probably the most popular for their wide selection of beer and great finger food. Happy hour until 9pm means you don't have to dig a hole in your pocket for some pints. No 5 starts its happy hour at 9pm and has some of the best (and strong) martinis you'll try in town. Try the chilli martini. Que Pasa which is between the two is more of a wine bar with some nice tapas.

Timbre: If you like live music, then that's the place for you. The owners have been supporting the local music scene ever since they started the place. The ambience is great and on top of relatively affordable drinks, they have great pizzas!

Clarke Quay Bridge: Simple. You buy your drinks at 7-11 next door, bring your own booze or just crash one of the many groups there to have your fill. By far the cheapest way to get wasted on any day of the week in the centre of the party scene, Clarke Quay. The place gets crowded at about 11pm, mostly with young foreigners studying in Singapore and tourists.

Kopitiams: Go local at one of the many coffee shops in Singapore. Order some local Tiger beer bottles and chill out with friends over some nice local dishes. You can't beat that.
