Beer Market

What if we tell you you could drink over 30 types of beer in one night? Yes, you can have it all if the price is right. Operated like the stock exchange, drink prices move according to demand, creating an interactive atmosphere. Definitely more laid-back than Shenton Way, enjoy a night out with the gang drinking and chomping on chicken wings. 


For the bilingual music experience and some really great pizza to go along with a night of beer drinking, here's your joint. The vibrant atmosphere makes it a good place for large groups and gathering - check out the great deals on the combos as well!


A night out drinking will be made even better if you have got great live entertainment. Here's where 53A comes in. A Timbre mainstay, 53A are versatile and talented - covering songs from The Beatles to John Mayer. Keep tabs on their gig schedule on Bandwagon. 

Crazy Elephant

Situated by the river in the heart of Clarke Quay, Crazy Elephant is good for a boisterous night out or even a chill meet up with friends. Good music, great pub grub, casual and relaxed vibes, and reasonable prices, it should be your top choice. 

Five Izakaya

Hey everyone this might excite you, one word: CHEAP. Offering $5 deals on beer, the house pour, and wines all day, everyday - it is a favourite choice for many. Located at central locations, drop by after work, and stay on till late to enjoy cheap food and drinks that will keep everyone happy (your wallet included). 

Wala Wala

Go back to the place that kickstarted the cover music movement in Singapore years ago. Still continuing in the tradition of great bands, chill out vibes and food great for sharing, Wala Wala is still the place to be after all these years. 

Acid Bar

Although located centrally, Acid Bar feels a little more laid-back than the kiasu shoppers on the shopping mecca that is Orchard Road. It can get rowdy some nights which is a bonus if you're looking for a boisterous night with the buddies, but on less busy days, you can enjoy some contemplative time in this Peranakan-decor joint. 

Pump Room

Always a party going on at Pump Room, check into this place if you're looking to have a long night out and some dancing included. Pump Room also brews their own beer and transitions from bar/restaurant to happening club within a few hours so just a heads up - be ready to party. 

Tawandang Microbrewery

Among the 'atas-ness' that is Dempsey Hill, sits Tawandang Microbrewery. Famed for it's own brewed beer, the beer towers and the performing staff, this is the perfect place for a big group, perhaps NOT looking for a quiet night. There's KTV, congo lines, mass dancing, authentic Thai food and lots of beer - what's there not to love?

Muddy Murphy's

Who knows better about drinking than the Irish? The spirit of the Irish is well alive at Muddy Murphy's! Pile on the pints while enjoying the live entertainment on display - blues, classic rock, soul on some nights, and also sports on cable for that intense match you have to catch with your bros.
