Singapore Nightlife

With so many choices on offer, it''s a difficult task deciding what to do for an evening out in Singapore and to experience its nightlife best. From cultural performances and traditional dancing and music to nightclubs, bars and partying it up amongst hardcore revellers, Singapore is a city that never sleeps.

Start an evening out at one of the many international touring Broadway shows or head to the nightlife hub of the city such as Boat Quay where a variety of bars, karaoke bars, clubs, discos and lounges can be found, as well as some of the city''s glitterati, who can be seen hanging out and mingling with the who''s who. Muhammad Sultan Road is another key area where clubs and bars are scattered as well as the Zouk complex, where many gay and lesbian clubs and bars can be found.

A night out in Singapore isn''t complete without a visit to the Long Bar in the Raffles Hotel, where the infamous cocktail the Singapore Sling was invented sometime between 1910 and 1915. Drinking in Singapore is an expensive pastime however, as the country''s heavy sin taxes push the price of drinks up to $15-25 in most clubs.

Clarke Quay is the place for hardcore clubbers, where the Ministry of Sound is based as well as a handful of hip new dance clubs. There are other areas of the city that have become eclectic in their entertainment choices and live jazz, acid jazz, international guest DJs and live music is easy to come by. Sentosa has a number of cocktail bars on the beach, and the Central Business District has plenty of chic nightclubs. One of the largest and longest-running clubs is the sprawling Zouk in Jiak Kim Street, which hosts visiting international artists and has a variety of floors ranging from house to hip hop, pop and even a dinner-dance area.

Singapore is a relatively safe place at night, even for women alone. Many clubs stay open until very late, closing 1 or 2am on weekdays and 3 or 4am on weekends. Taxis can be found fairly easily, but be prepared for a rush of people, and an increase of fares, after midnight when the clubs start to close.
