Singapore has many cool and happening places where you can chill out with your friends and people watch at the same time.
Here’s a list of the must See and Be Seen Restaurants in Singapore.
Somebody might call them the coolest restaurants to eat in, or even go to the extent of claiming that they are the most happening places in Singapore to people watch. Others might raise an eyebrow at the pretentious atas restaurants. Oh whatever. They are the must-go places in Singapore!
Ku De Ta
The classy rooftop venue is the definitely the latest place to see and be seen. When you have such a stunning view of the city’s skyline at the top of Marina Bay Sands, with the help a glass of champagne, anything can happen. Ku De Ta is the best place to have a cocktail, chill out with your friends and feast your eyes on good-looking people.

Housed in the former Killiney Post Office, KPO (named for its location at the junctions of Killiney, Penang and Orchard Road) is a two-storey cafe and bar that is known for its ‘happening’ crowd, and the flashy cars parked in front.
Definitely one of the most popular watering holes in Singapore for sipping a martini and people-watch.

Mimo Kitchen & Bar (Formerly Mimolette)
The location beside a saddle club makes Mimo Kitchen & Bar (previously known as Mimolette restaurant) the ideal getaway from the city for brunch on weekends.
When night falls, Mimo Bar transforms into one of the hippest night clubs in town where people let their hair down and groove to the music. The place is extremely popular during special occasions like Christmas Eve & New Year’s Eve.
