The clubs to hit for vertiginous views, the best DJ sets, the most premium bottle service and, of course, the most beautiful people.

We've all been there—you're done after a long day of work and need to blow off some steam. From Altimate to Zouk, we round up the best clubs in Singapore for you. After all, your clubbing experience isn't complete if you haven't been to all of them at least once.

Altimate

This ultra-luxe 4,000 sq. ft. space has glorious views of the skyline, while the interiors are bathed in LED lights and giant screens. On top of the cover charge, there are your run-of-the-mill club drinks and also a range of premium bottles. Music depends on the night, but you can count on a go-hard-or-go-home blend of R&B, dance and electronic music, with international guest acts playing alongside resident DJs.

61/F One Raffles Place, 1 Raffles Place, 6438-0410. Open Wed 10pm-3am; Fri-Sat 10pm-4am. 

Attica

Spruced up after a major renovation last year, this Clarke Quay stalwart is still going strong. With cushy seats and an inviting bar, this nightspot is made for schmoozing, lounging and grooving. We particularly love the interior alfresco bar for when you want a breather from the loud music. 

#01-03 Blk. A Clarke Quay, 3 River Valley Rd., 6333-9973. Open Sun-Tue 5:30-11pm; Wed 10:30pm-4am; Fri 10:30pm-4am; Sat 10:30pm-4am; Thu 10:30pm-3am.

Bang Bang

This snazzy nightclub is a collaboration between Massive Collective and nightclub veterans Joshua and Sarissa Schwartz. Taking over the old Mink, the new fittings have a brand new state-of-the-art LAcoustics sound system and a high resolution LED wall.

Pan Pacific Singapore,  Pan Pacific Singapore, 7 Raffles Blvd., 8127-2808. Open Wed 10pm-6am; Fri 10pm-6am; Sat 10pm-6am. 

Canvas

After the closing of Home Club last year, the subsequent space, Canvas, is equal parts creative space and nightclub. When it is not hosting exhibitions, poetry readings and comedy, it does parties with resident DJs like Koflow and William J, and international visitors like DJs Apollo and Kutski.

#B1-01/06 The Riverwalk, 20 Upper Circular Rd., 6538-2928. Open Tue 5pm-1am; Wed-Fri 5pm-3am; Sat 6pm-4am. 

CÉ LA VI 

Complementing the restaurant and bar, the other side of the MBS rooftop is home to an equally lofty and swanky club. Since the rebranding from KU DE TA, they’ve refurbished and spruced up the menu, but the elevated lounge furniture remains. 

57/F Marina Bay Sands SkyPark, 1 Bayfront Ave., 6688-7688. Open daily noon-4am. 

Empire

The team behind Filter, Mink and Bang Bang brings you this chic bar and penthouse lounge where you can sip on cocktails while enjoying stunning views of the Marina Bay area.

45 Singapore Land Tower, 50 Raffles Place, 9128-7001. Open Mon-Thu 5pm-1am; Fri-Sat 5pm-3am. 

Refuge

Limited Edition Concepts, the guys behind the now-defunct The Vault, are back in Boat Quay. The sleek club-lounge occupies a three-story shophouse and plays R&B and funk tunes. While the second floor is a full-fledged club with hip hop tunes and an urban feel, the third floor is all about down tempo beats with a playlist of funk, groove and classic songs. Never mind the harlequin-esque decor interspersed with dark wood, we’re digging the old school American soul here.

79A/B Circular Rd., Open Tue 5pm-1am; Thu 5pm-1am; Wed 5pm-3am; Fri-Sat 5pm-4am.

Kyo

Disappear underground via a dramatic stairwell and emerge in the 6,000 sq. ft. den, where modern minimalism meets traditional Japanese influences with plenty of rough-hewn stone, bronze and recycled wood. With an emphasis on quality, playlists feature a distinct genre and mood on each night of the week. Watch out for special guest DJs that sit right on the cutting edge of the international electronic music scene.

#B1-02 Keck Seng Tower, 133 Cecil St., 6225-6001. Open Wed-Thu 9pm-4am; Fri 9pm-4:30am; Sat 11pm-6am. 

Pangaea

With a strict door policy (make sure you are dressed to the nines before heading here), the city’s poshest club and lounge is especially fitting if you’re in the mood to splurge on a table (minimum spend of $1,500); this is the place to be for pampering bar service.

#B2-05 South Crystal Pavilion, Marina Bay Sands, 2 Bayfront Ave., 8611-7013. Open Wed-Sat 10pm-6am.

Zouk

Much is changing for Singapore’s best-known night club, with a change in ownership recently announced and a change of address to Clarke Quay planned for mid-2016. Until then, it’s still the place to be seen at after two decades, with diverse music offerings that cater to all. Main floor Zouk is where weekly global DJs take to the floor and Phuture has its buzzy hip hop offerings. The star of the club is undoubtedly Velvet Underground, a sleek and exclusive lounge.

17 Jiak Kim St., 6738-2988. Open Wed 11pm-4am; Fri-Sat 10pm-4am.
