Bars, clubs, lounges, speakeasies… we have em’ all.

We keep saying that the nightlife scene in Singapore is getting more exciting, but every year it never disappoints. Refuge is back after a brief closure, CATO and Headquarters by the Council has really upped their game and fancy joints Cherry Discotheque and VLV have come to conquer. A trio of bars has done Singapore’s cocktail scene a great deal, appearing at spots 11 (Manhattan), 14 (28 HongKong Street) and 21 (Operation Dagger) on the World's 50 Best Bars list. A few new microbreweries and new bars also get a mention, but what was especially exciting this year was the growth of the alternative party scene: pool parties, block parties, silent discos, an outdoor electro music festival, excellent bar food and so much more.
