Singapore’s Best Nightlife Spots

Sizzling Singapore dazzles with a host of trendy night spots, dance clubs and live music venues clustered conveniently in a host of entertainment districts. Dance the night away at sprawling, internationally celebrated party palaces, enter the city’s indie music underground or join the jammed dance floors at hot hip-hop havens. If you like to party, you’ll never forget Singapore after dark.

Embracing four swanky clubs housed in a cluster of renovated warehouses in trendy Robertson Quay, Zouk is the glitzy queen of Singapore clubs. Showcasing house music and techno, main club Zouk caters to a young, hip crowd, while sexy, exclusive Velvet Underground seduces disco divas with psychedelic décor and a celebrity-laced crowd. Edgy, experimental Phuture is packed with frenetic dancers grooving to a mix of adventurous music. Wind down after a wild evening in the cooling embrace of laid-back Wine Bar.

Happening Clarke Quay is home to some spectacular, super-hot clubs. An after-dark legend for its sizzling repertoire of international hip-hop, rock and R&B performances, sprawling Arena has amazing light and sound systems and a chic neo-gothic vibe. Dazzling dance palace Zirca includes a dance lounge with performances including fire-twirlers and aerialists, a graffiti-decorated hip-hop arena and a wildly retro disco den. One of the city’s few true underground havens, Home Club is an artsy, eclectic hang-out showcasing the talents of local bands, DJs and artists. Hard-partyers will want to jump right over to One Fullerton’s The Butter Factory. With zingy pop culture interiors, over-the-top themed parties and some truly crazed cocktails, the club includes a room for hip hop and one for electronic and alternative rock.

Glitzy Marina Bay plays hip host to loads of luscious clubs. Spread seductively across two levels of the Esplanade Mall, Titanium offers indoor and outdoor seating, VIP suites, state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems and incredible live performances. Offering eye-popping views both inside and out, Avalon is housed in Marina Bay Sand’s South Crystal Pavilion and lures the likes of Ashton Kutcher, Pink and Cameron Diaz with stunning light shows, ultra-stylish interiors and a hot, fashionable crowd. Subterranean Pangaea, also in Marina Bay Sands, offers up surrealistic décor, VIP service and international DJ entertainment to an exclusive clientele.

Clubs in Mohammed Sultan are packed with a mix of university students and young professionals. Decidedly more rowdy than the glitzier gems of Singapore, dress in spots like Cats, 2, Club Samsara and Sugar is casual and clubs are jammed on the weekends. Boasting one of the city’s biggest dance floors and a jaw-dropping illuminated wall, dblO has four bars with vibes ranging from sweetly secluded to wildly extravagant. Tunes are retro and top 40s most nights, while hip-hop and R&B reign after dark on Thursdays.

Your sizzling Singapore evening never needs to end if you head over to Insomnia, one of the first bars in the city to snag a 24-hour license. Located in the happening, historic Chijmes entertainment district, Insomnia offers Asian and Western dishes, cocktails sipped under the stars and a cool collection of live music and DJ spins.

Singapore Best Nightlife.
