Singapore

Singapore’s late-night options have expanded in recent years to include more highbrow lounges with million-dollar views, mixologists shaking up the trendiest ingredients, and bars tapping into some of the beers from all over. After work, professionals and expats typically congregate at watering holes on Club Street and pubs in Boat Quay, as well as at some of the cocktail bars that have been popping up around Chinatown and Haji Lane.

Nightclubs featuring electronic dance music have a massive following here, and that's been true since the opening of Zouk, back in 1996. Additional clubs can be found around Clarke Quay and throughout the CBD.

First-time visitors should be prepared for the exorbitantly expensive prices that clubs charge. Beer guzzlers on a budget are best off sipping on a few at the hawker centers, one of the only places to find reasonable rates.

Be aware that although the once-bawdy Bugis Street has been sanitized, a seedy underworld still exists elsewhere in town. Red-light districts, which are mostly found in parts of Geylang, have buildings that really are lit by red lanterns. Soliciting for prostitution is illegal, but the deed itself isn't; it's actually tolerated, monitored, and contained, with most prostitutes registered and subject to regular medical checks. If karaoke is what you seek, keep in mind that it is common for "KTV" lounges to be a cover for prostitution.

    One of the few Arab-influenced lounges on Haji Lane that serves booze as well as hookah pipes, Going Om is a bit of a spiritual haven for the hippie community. Live music is often performed in front of the bar, with small tables set up where people can soak up the easy-going surroundings.

    Noted for its Straits-Chinese architecture, this 1910 townhouse is a bustling pub that attracts expats and locals alike. The bar serves some 60 beers on tap or in bottles (they're "ice cold" from being in vast ice tanks). Anyone up for a game of darts can head to the back of the bar. Upstairs is the pub's cozy Stellar Bar, modeled on the Interbrew headquarters in Belgium, with tall mirrors and warm earth tones. Stella Artois, Hoegaarden, and other Interbrew beers are served here. Rock music from the '70s and '80s provides the soundtrack. Note that you must be at least age 25 to enter.

    To get to the top level of this bar on the 71st and 72nd floors of the Stamford, you'll need advance reservations; the striking views there are enhanced by the way the floors are at a 20-degree slant. There are Asian food options in the grill section, as well as shellfish and sushi stations. The vibrant decor features strong colors and unusual designer furnishings. A DJ pushes up the beat with disco music on the weekend.

    This five-floor film, food, and bar complex is part of a cluster of trendy shophouse bars and restaurants. An Arabian restaurant and lounge take up the basement and first floor, but the biggest draw is on the third floor, where there's a small, funky theater with its own bar. Classic films from around the world are shown, and menus are created to match the theme. (The film schedule is online, and reservations can be made via email or phone.) The rooftop bar attracts a hip after-work crowd.

    The long-running Zouk always manages to reinvent itself. The huge dance club, carved out of renovated riverside warehouses, is four venues in one: Zouk for the young; Velvet Underground for sophisticated disco divas; the always-crowded Phuture for hip lovers and frenetic dancers; and Wine Bar for cooling out. Visiting international DJs serve as hosts, and the club consistently gets rave reviews overseas.

    Movers and shakers head here to relax and take in spectacular views of the Singapore River and business district skyline. The opulent—if a little confused—decor includes massive Czech crystal chandeliers and towering gold-leaf Buddhas. The bar claims to be the first in Asia to specialize in prosecco (sparkling white wine) and vodka. It's part of IndoChine, so there's Indo-Chinese finger food, such as spring rolls and prawns on sugarcane.

    Hamburgers and large portions of Tex-Mex fare are served at this split-level music pub and café. A live band plays from 10:30 pm nightly, with jam sessions on Sunday night—and Kumar, a gifted local comedian/female impersonator, struts his stuff during a campy show on Monday night (S$16 cover charge). Like other Hard Rock branches, this place is casual, festive, and filled with rock memorabilia.
