A toast to never-ending late nights

We feel like we say this every year, but wow, what a year it’s been for nightlife in Singapore.

In the past 12 months, Singapore has cemented its place as one of the world’s cocktail capitals—13 Singaporean bars made the 2017 Asia’s 50 Best Bars list, including Manhattan at #1; and six bars went on to feature on the 2017 World’s 50 Best Bars list, with Manhattan at #7. Of particular note is the fact that a couple of those bars, Atlas and Native, were able to reach those heights in their first year of operations—a good indicator that there’s still plenty of room for new and innovative establishments to make waves here.

Beyond cocktails, bars specializing in craft beer, spirits and wine have helped us remain well-informed, versatile drinkers.

Singapore continues to impress on the clubbing side of things as well. Zouk climbed two spots to claim fourth place on DJ Mag’s Top 100 Clubs list while Ce La Vi jumped 10 spots to end up at #80. The arrival of New York restaurant and club Lavo atop Marina Bay Sands is also eagerly anticipated.

All these bars and clubs are included in this handy guide along with many old favorites and fresh newcomers. We hope you’ll enjoy them much as we have in the course of our research (it’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it). Cheers!
