But as much as we love indulging and feeling refined, every once in awhile it is always nice to hang out at a neighbourhood bar where you can have a cold one absent from any form of pretentiousness.
Never mind the dinginess, or the smelly toilets; neighbourhood pubs are where we head to when we want to kick back and crack open a beer with our buddies and the best part of these all is being able to wear slippers and shorts without being judged.

Yakitori bars have been sprouting up a lot recently in Singapore, especially with the pairing of cocktails and Japanese meat skewers gaining immense popularity. Nestled along the cafe-strewn street of Bukit Pasoh Road lies Chikin, a new Yakitori bar that dishes out hearty meat skewers with a twist.
