Nightlife In Singapore

Updated on March 12, 2013

Singapore Nights

Some might say that the nightlife in Singapore is tame. Shopping malls close at ten in the evening, the streets start clearing at eleven and it is generally dead by midnight. Everyone goes to bed early to start another busy day at work in the morning. The previous statements are untruthful, stereotypical of nature and it is safe to note that the nightlife scene in the tropical country is alive, well and kicking. And it is also safe to note that you do not have to be a hardcore-wild thrashing party type to enjoy the city’s nightlife, so everyone can rejoice!

When most of the companies knock off work at five or six in the evening, Singapore turns from a busy business epicenter into a frenzy of various activities at night appealing to any and all sorts of crowd and whatever it is they are into.

For the younger crowd wanting to groove and dance the night away and socialize while enjoying a few drinks, Zouk is where the crowd is. Zouk offers three adjoining clubs (Zouk, Velvet Underground and Phuture) all in within the confines of a bustling nightlife scene. Zouk comprises mainly of the younger crowd, consisting of a huge dance floor featuring a variety of house and guest deejays every night, playing hits that will blast into the state-of-the-art sound system. A highlight of Zouk would be Mambo Jambo nights held every Wednesday. Considered to be an initiation for those new to the clubbing scene, Mambo Jambo or Mambo nights as it is more commonly called, is a themed night featuring old school hits of the 70s and 80s where clubbers would dance in unison to.

Velvet Underground

Velvet Underground, located beside Zouk, appeals to the slightly older demographic, a place where the business suited let loose their ties and lounge to the less-heart pounding soul music. To top Zouk off, is Phuture. As it name suggests, Phuture has a modernistic, space age, avant-garde-like feel to the club. Specializing in Down Tempo and Trip Hop music, Phuture appeals to the likes of anyone desiring to feel a little different that night.

Chinatown Night Market

For the shopping socialites and demigods who require a shopping haven in the night to have their shopping fix, do not fret when the shopping malls across the island closes for the night. From traditional clothes, to modern-looking souvenirs, the Chinatown Night Market located deep in the heart of Chinatown at Pagoda Street offers a unique, bazaar style experience that will appeal to the travelers out to find a unique looking artifact to bring back home. The Chinatown Night Market opens till one in the morning on weekends.

Mustafa Center

Shoppers that desire shopping within the confines and comfort of a shopping mall will be pleased with what Mustafa Center has to offer. The only 24-hour is like a wonder emporium. Quite literally everything is available within the confines of the building and it will indeed give shoppers hours of shopping time until dawn breaks. Located in the vicinity of Little India, 24-hour restaurants are located within and around the one-stop shopping paradise so if you feel a little urge for a bite in the middle of your shopping haunt, just drop by one of the many restaurants available and open throughout the night.

Lastly, for the insomniacs and the late-night travelers who need a joint to eat, Singapore is the right place to be. Known for its food, the tropical country also has plenty of restaurants and eating outlets open 24-hours throughout the night. Foodies should try out Glutton’s Bay, offering traditional-styled hawker stall food at affordable prices. Located at City Hall, deep in the heart of the city, business dealings occurring late at night in need of food should drop by Glutton’s Bay as it is open until three in the morning. Foodies in search of a good bar along with fine dining should drop by well-known Holland Village. A quaint rustic village appealing to expatriates, Holland Village is a mere 15-minute drive away from downtown heart of the city and its bars and restaurants are open throughout the night. With many restaurants offering different types of food, foodies will be spoiled for choice.

So, for those who doubt the nightlife in Singapore, drop by any of the above locations and check it out! You will definitely be surprised with what Singapore has to offer at night, you might even find that it could be more fun than what is happening around the island in the day!
