9 Neighbourhood Bars You Can Wear Slippers To Without Being Judged

Ice ColdBeer Corona

Speakeasy bars in Singapore are getting increasingly popular, well-loved for their sophisticated cocktail crafts or classy ambiences. 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.

Here are 9 Neighbourhood Bars In Singapore you can wear slippers to without being judged.

Prince of Wales is a backpackers hostel that also happens to have a really cosy bar. Sticking true to its Aussie roots, this no-frills al fresco bar ticks all the right boxes with its affordable craft beers, live music, and a laid-back clientele of backpackers and locals alike.

One of the longest standing bars along Upper Thomson Road, Sara’s is hard to miss with its huge bright pink fluorescent sign board. This iconic bar may seem dodgy to first-timers, but to those who live around the area, it is pretty much home.

Sara’s has just about everything from the usual beer to wine and even killer cocktails that they created in-house. Be sure not to let anyone know if it is your birthday because chances are you will regret it the following morning.

This is a joint that many would rather keep a secret. Hogs Bar is a biker-themed craft beer joint that many bikers and Easties head to after work; more so because of their ridiculous number of television screens that show a variety of sports from rugby to football and even tennis.

The bar also offers Tiger, Heineken, and Guinness on tap as well as a variety of Western dishes at pocket-friendly prices.

This cheekily-named bar sports a raw, gritty interior and offers a vast variety of spirits, wine, and beers that will cater to just about anyone. We absolutely love their Kung Fu-themed cocktails, with names like Chuck Norris and Enter the Dragon.
