It’s no secret that Holland Village is one of the more happening places after sundown. But with so many options, it can be tough to simply pick a bar to go.

Wala Wala is an old-school drinking place that your parents probably frequented - with live performances, drinks, and good food, it’s not hard to see why this place is so popular. With the second floor dedicated to the live bands, you can get an up-close view of the musicians as they jam to the latest hits. The best part is that drinks start at $7

If you’re peckish for a quick bite, you can order some Buffalo Wings ($14) or Truffle Fries ($8).

Out on a date and prefer a quieter spot for some chit-chat? Opt for the first floor instead.

Boasting a range of specially crafted bespoke cocktails and interesting bar bites, Lucky Bar is one place you can consider taking your date out for a slightly fancier evening.

Dragon’s Breath $20.

Strong liquor may not be everyone’s cup of tea - so if you’re one that prefers drinks that don’t taste too strongly of alcohol, go for Dragon’s Breath ($20), a smooth and sweet cocktail made of Monkey Shoulder scotch, goji berries and winter melon syrup. The drink is served in a quirky mini cage, so A+ for presentation.

 Geisha Lover

Geisha Lover $22

Resembling chawanmushi, this drink is aptly named Geisha Lover ($22), a Japanese-inspired concoction of red wine and grape liquor with a few surprising ingredients. The froth at the top is cleverly achieved by whisking egg white, while it’s sweet flavour can be alluded to nutmeg.

 Lucky Bar money bags

Money Bags $8

Lucky Bar also boasts a selection of equally quirky bar bites, such as the Golden Sand Corn ($6.80), a quick snack made from corn, coated in savoury salted egg yolk sauce. If you like dumplings, try the Money Bags ($8), which are fried wontons with a spicy sauce to compliment the meaty filling.

Cheap booze need not be limited to happy hour, especially when The Pit Restaurant & Bar has sweet deals throughout the day.  Since it’s not located along the same stretch as the other bars, it’s pretty much a hidden gem that only regulars know of.

We all know Germans love their bier - and Baden Restaurant and Pub is bringing some of that passion to us with authentic German food and beverages. With simple wooden furniture and a casual bar countertop, the place is reminiscent of the archetypal European tavern.

German roasts may sometimes be a little salty for our liking, but Baden's version is flavoured just right, with crispy pork skin paired with tender melt-in-the-mouth meat. Plus, what’s better than having some cold, frothy beer to wash down the dish’s hearty flavours? 

Baden offers 1-for-1 German beers, and patrons can also order 5 bottles of Corona, Hoegaarden or Stella Artois from just $39.
