We hate a party cut short, so here are seven places you can go to continue the good times until you’re ready to call it a night. Don’t forget some nibbles to complete the evening because we all know that drinking on an empty stomach is a strict no-no. That, and we’ll never pass up the chance for some great eats!
Craft beers have become increasingly popular the past few years and Stärker’s award-winning beers (5 unique brews: Lager, Dunkel, Charcoal, Aromatic, and Lychee) certainly prove why. Housed in a sprawling 2-storey space, the high ceilings and relaxed atmosphere also make it the perfect hangout for every occasion, including late night tipples. Tempted yet?

Located at CHIJMES, we love the nostalgic locale, live music, and upbeat atmosphere. Brimming with life and diversity, The Berlin Bar is your perfect place to chill out till late. Add in some strong drinks and affordable eats and this will be one night you won’t want to end.
Pair It With: Grilled Sausage Platter, Seafood Marinara, Kahlua Cheesecake
Featuring a host of specialty cocktails from the Breakfast of Champions to the Bacon Bourbon Milkshake, we now understand why the late opening hours are an absolute necessity – it takes a massive feat of self-control to limit yourself to just one drink at OverEasy. With its gorgeous waterfront view and a cosy interior, you could easily stay there till dawn.

As Boat Quay’s prime rooftop hangout for live music and great booze, it’s hard to go wrong with The Mad Men Attic Bar. The bar’s edgy ambience gives way to a gorgeous al fresco outdoor rock and roll stage where you can tap your feet to music by local bands every night of the week and revel in unrivaled views of the glittering skyscrapers.
Choose from one of largest selections of booze we’ve seen in Singapore: from draught beers to hard liquors like tequila, bourbon, brandy, you’ll be hard pressed to find a place with more variety. We’re major fans of the long selection of whiskies, from the Nikka Clear to the Talisker 10 Yrs.
Pair It With: Some dinner at The Pecking Order, or nibbles like “Har Cheong” Chicken Chunks and the Pulled Pork Po’Boy
Experience some magic in the moonlight at Smoke and Mirrors, perched at the top floor of the historic National Gallery. Prepare to be dazzled by daring ingredients and imaginative concoctions that titillate the senses with every sensuous sip. Our top choice is the savoury Duck’s Fat Hope, infused with droplets of Peking Duck Jus for a rich, satisfying flavour. Other favourites include the Charles’ Journey, Glasgow’s Winterfall, and Tiger Blood Daisy. Smoke and Mirrors truly elevates mixology to an art form.
Pair It With: Half Peking Duck Board with Crepe and Traditional Garnishes, Crispy Roast Pork Belly
Its name hails from the historic General Post Office, and this classy bar at the Fullerton Hotel features a drink menu that includes everything under the sun, often with a personalized twist. We especially love the imaginative cocktails like the Hazel Caipiroska, featuring hazelnut liqueur laced with cranberry juice and a dash of passionfruit puree, infused with a hint of lime and sugar stirred over crushed ice. And if you think you’ve slung every possible version of Singapore’s namesake cocktail, try the Almond Sling for a unique spin. Sounds like it’s time to plan a great night out!
Pair It With: Mini Burgers, PB Signature 10” Quesadilla, Scallop Ceviche, Pincho Maruno
As Singapore’s first standalone rooftop bar, Loof is no stranger to the serious partygoer. Its electric atmosphere, complete with stunning views of Raffles Hotel and the city skyline, is a compelling enough reason to drop by for a drink or two. But the local tipples are what really make this a special joint – think a sweet ‘Kopi Cat’ or ‘Kaya Lumpur’, or the mighty ‘Honey, Dew You Like Whisky’. And for those avid Instagram and Snapchat users out there, don’t forget to snap a picture of the iconic 风和日丽 (Chinese for perfect weather…as if we didn’t know) sign!
Pair It With: Cheeseburger Yakitori, Chilli Crab Waffle Fries, Bacon Lollipop
