Get into the groove and party all night in the city that’s well on its way to becoming a clubbing hotspot of Asia.
Most nightspots are just a short taxi ride from each other – perfect for bar-hopping, shopping, feasting, and an endless night of partying.
At nights, and especially on the weekends, you’ll see a mix of locals and tourists hitting the clubs in full force.
Two popular areas are Boat Quay and Clarke Quay. Their lanes were once lined with old Chinese warehouses and shophouses. They have since been given a new lease of life and now form a vital part of Singapore’s pulsating nightlife.
The demand for new nightlife trends has led to a burst of new spots offering live, visually-rich entertainment. Zirca, The Arena, and The Bellini Grande, all in Clarke Quay, feature dance, magic and big-band performances respectively.
St James Power Station is a one-stop powerhouse for nightbirds, offering several kinds of clubs for different clubbing and music tastes under one roof.
Themed nights at clubs like Zouk, Café del Mar and Helipad are perfect for niche crowds.
Shopping at night
Singapore’s safe streets make it a pleasure to shop even at night. It is not called a shopping paradise for nothing! For a unique evening shopping experience, scout around for great bargains at ethnic quarters such as Little India and Chinatown, which truly come alive at night.
The stores and malls along Orchard Road, Singapore’s Champs Elysee, are open till 9.30pm on most nights. Late-night shopping on Saturdays will indulge you till 11pm.
The largest mall in Singapore, Vivo City, situated just across a lane from the St James Power Station clubbing hub, comes with over 300 shops and restaurants, and a 15-screen cineplex, making it perfect for a night out for dining, shopping and the movies. The promenade also offers great views of Sentosa island at night.
View the romantic skyline of Singapore by hopping on board an enchanting river cruise or a traditional bumboat at night. You could relive the original splendour of old Singapore when cruising down Singapore River with its restored century-old godowns and shophouses on the banks. Capture gorgeous photo memories with some of Singapore’s iconic buildings in the background, such as the Asian Civilisations Museum and its towering bank buildings. Take a fun ride in the River Taxis as you go from one quay to another Contact Singapore River Cruises & Leisure and Singapore Explorer for more details.
If you’re after a wild night out of a different kind, take a trip to Singapore’s Night Safari to enjoy wildlife under the moonlight. The night zoo is home to over 900 animals of 135 unusual species, and simulates tropical landscapes such as the African savannah, Nepalese river valley, Southeast Asian rainforest, South American pampas and Burmese jungle.
