Singapore has a good number of bars. There’s plenty to choose from if you need a date night away from the kids and the stresses and strains of life. Whether you’re looking for a rooftop with a view, or something hidden away, Singapore’s bar scene has it all. Here are some of our favorite places to head to for date night.
For a truly magnificent view of Singapore, head to the roof of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. The price of your ticket to enter gets you one drink. They have an extensive cocktail menu as well as wines and beers. If you need to get away from it all, head up here and relax in a comfy lounger and watch the world below. There’s a nightly DJ too if you fancy a bit of a boogie.

The Cufflink Club is a stunning bar that serves up bespoke cocktails like you’ve never seen before. Drinks in test-tubes, tankards and even a plastic red cup! Cocktails are creative, unique and quite delicious. They’re a little pricey so come on pay day. Inspiration for each drink is taken from pop culture, literature and nostalgia. This is hands down one of the best cocktail bars in Singapore.

Home to the world’s highest brewery, the view isn’t too bad either. Grab a table outside and take in the view of Marina Bay and Singapore’s East Coast. Choose one of their home brews or a delicious, cold glass of wine. As well as date night it’s a good place to bring out of town guests. The food is good too, so plan on staying for dinner.

Head underground to enter this bar. The door doesn’t have the name above it, so make sure you follow the cool folk down these dark steps. The barman will happily create a concoction for you. The bar has won many accolades since opening in 2015. It’s the place to go for cocktails, we wouldn’t order a beer, as their list is extensive and quite simply delicious.
