These days, drinking games no longer revolve around King’s cup and a bunch of card games. Sure, those games are everyone’s go-to especially after having countless rounds of ‘Never Have I Ever’ with your old friends during your catch up sessions, but when nights like these become mundane, all we need is an extra boost other than alcohol.
Yes, while we may all agree that everything seems more fun and intense after having chugged down a pint (or two) of beer in a couple of seconds, there are several arcade-style bars in Singapore that have taken nightlife a notch up.
Now, retro-themed arcade consoles, electronic beer pong tables and plenty of dart machines take centre stage in elevating your nightlife, making sure that you have one hell of a memorable time.

One of the newer additions to Sunshine Plaza’s slew of hidden food gems is Steakville, a humble hole-in-a-wall that serves up some seriously good steak as well as a myriad of other enticing mains.
Striving to bring the “farm to table” dining experience, Steakville sources their beef from specific farms, ensuring that only the best quality beef is chosen. Costing only S$15 for a hanger steak, we were beyond impressed given the quality of it. On top of their food, they also serve solid artisanal cuppas as well as an array of cocktails.
Located within walking distance from NAFA and Kaplan, this new steak joint is definitely a great hangout spot for students as well given its location and affordable prices.

Cantonese, Hokkien, Teochew or even the tastes of Sze Chuan, it doesn’t matter—they’re all darn delicious to us. If you are ready to dive into authentic Chinese cooking, here is our guide to 31 best Chinese restaurants in Singapore.
