Barking Irons is a new steampunk-themed speakeasy bistro bar in Lavender serving up an interesting innovation: local-inspired cocktails! The catch? These cocktails are made from a harmonious blend of both our all-time favourite childhood beverages and liquor.
They also have a sweet story behind the inspiration for their local drinks: they wanted to adopt the “coffee-shop style” with drinks that reminded others of their throw-back childhood generation.
A fairly new kid on the block, Barking Irons has slowly been gaining recognition amongst alcoholics for their killer cocktails and toothsome mains.
Gone are the days when bars used to be after-work hangs for working adults to either drink to celebrate or drown their sorrows. Now, many newer and hipper bars have adopted several fun elements to heighten the overall experience—fun in the form of arcade-style games as well as party games that involve a lot of drinking.
Replacing the now defunct Beer Market—just across the street from Liang Court—is one of Clarke Quay’s newest and most fun-filled beer pong-focused sports bars, PONG Singapore. Established only this year, this luxurious drinking hole impresses with its array of beers on tap, hand-crafted cocktails, fusion-style food and their top-of-the-line, digital beer pong tables.
Singapore’s pioneers of the latest PongConnect™ technology, PONG Singapore revolutionises traditional beer pong with more fun, enjoyment and friendly competition. Coming straight to you from Hong Kong, PongConnect™ is the latest trend hitting the nightlife scene all around the world. Not to mention that the features include live scoreboards that not only show your score but connect beer pong players on a global level as well.
The beauty of the happy hour lies not only in the pleasure of boozy libations but also in the food that is often sinful yet incredibly tasty. Here at PONG Singapore, you will find no shortage of impressionable nosh. And we will not lie—their food truly takes bar food to a whole new level and is something we will definitely return for. You have to try the Beef Sliders, guys.
If you like a good drink from time to time but constantly find yourself on a tight budget, then this guide is for you.

Yet, it is often easier said than done to make it in time to snag those happy hour promotions.

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.
Opened by the owners of Sum Yi Tai, Chikin is an unassuming bar which specialises in clever cocktail infusions, comforting Japanese eats as well as Szechuan mala yakitori—the first of its kind. Combining traditional Japanese methods with mouth watering Szechuan flavours, Chikin aims to reshape the way we think and feel about Japanese yakitori forever.
