Although it may be a new kid on the block, this bar has already made an impression with its kitschy, 60’s New York back alley club aesthetic. Think neon signages, dim, flickering lights and graffiti painted walls. What else we love: the ritzy chandeliers, lipstick stained napkins, and a jukebox.

If you’re keen on stepping away from the hustle and bustle of the city’s CBD area, here’s the bar to be at. This alfresco enclave perched on the fourth floor is known for its vibrantly-coloured decor and furniture, with a laidback setting right beside a pool. Another perk? The fairy lights are definitely Insta-worthy.

#3: Dapper Coffee
Tucked away in a historic shophouse along Amoy street is Dapper Coffee. Do not be fooled by its name though, this cafe and bar hybrid serves up pretty cool concoctions. The biggest draw here, however, is its cool, dimly-lit interior. Almost like a hideout, this place has a speakeasy atmosphere for a chill night out.

This hip urban Japanese restaurant and bar sits on a prime location on the waterfront of Singapore’s Marina Bay. It is edgy and uber cool – think graffiti painted walls, a floor mural by tattoo artist Chris Garver and a picturesque view of our city’s skyline (yes, it opens out onto a rooftop bar).
