10 Popular Places For A Pre-Drink Party Before Hitting The Clubs In Singapore


Pre-drinks before hitting the clubs in Singapore are part of a ritual and though you can bring your own alcohol to get yourself high, ambience matters. For the best night out to alleviate the misery of work or school or even to just have a spanking good time, you need a legit place to party.

With a barrage of watering holes, we whittled down 10 popular drinking places to wet your whistle and start the nightlife in Singapore. Some of these places even open doors in the afternoon to sate your thirst but as they say, though it might be 2pm here it is 12am somewhere else in the world.

Besides happy hour and cheap beer towers, some of our roundup of reigning pre-clubbing drinking places have challenges for dares, games, and those with a competitive streak. With others in this list, watch out for inventive drinks such as Milo Godzilla and alcoholic Milk Tea too.

What are you waiting for? Go hard or go home.
