Shut down your computers and head out of the office early, because while your colleagues may judge you for drinking when the sun’s still up, you can just as easily have the last laugh for paying much less for the same. Here’s a list of 11 bars in Singapore’s CBD where you can enjoy a tipple or two at wallet-friendly prices. You’re welcome.
