We like to sleep all day and party all night,

Hidden at the most unexpected corner at One Fullerton, Butter Factory has built up a reputation among the younger generation. Queues for entrance would reach beyond the premises of the club and extend to the river banks on crowded days. Its heart-pumping music can be heard from miles away, and if one is lost on the way to finding this club, a very handy piece of advice would be to look around and follow the people dressed for a party. With its main area on the second floor, it may be quite annoying waiting for the single lift to transport the party-goers and the long flights of stairs may not be a good idea after being intoxicated.

The club is home to a younger crowd, with the many podiums on the dance floor always filled with enthusiastic individuals dancing throughout the night. On ladies night Wednesdays, the club even offers free drinks for the ladies all the way till midnight. The club is basically split into two different sub dance floors that are linked by a walkway. One is usually overly crowded sometimes even too packed to move while the other can be so empty that the dj is left spinning to a few pathetic souls dancing around to invisible beats on the dance floor. On the dance floor itself, the bar tables and chairs are placed around it, causing people to topple over tables and sometimes collide into them in their not so sober state.

The club may be more costly as the regular individual would have to pay for entrance and an additional cost for bag drop. However, the club does have collaborations and promotions with many credit cards like American Express that offer free entry and priority queues. For those with stamina, the early closing of the club may cause some unforeseen unhappiness.

Free Drinks and Hip hop Music

Since the last time I've been to this place, it seems that this place has been getting better ever since. Recently, my own presence at this club was rewarded with free drink coupons - which probably attributes to and explains the surge in popularity of this club. Nevertheless, the free drinks are incentive enough to groove to the hip hop music that is constantly being played from the latest hits to the more old-school grooves of the classic hip-hop mixes.

The place is also great for dancing. Since it isn't so popular on weekdays, the dance floor is usually empty which means more space for crazy dancing - and less time spent in another club-goer's sweaty body and armpit.

Fun party scene, great crowd

The Butter Factory goes hand-in-hand with party goers at Zouk. If you have friends that know how to party, then they should know, or at least have heard of this place. Using the gorgeous Marina Sands as a backdrop, patrons can dance, drink and sing the night away.

What attracted me the most about the club was the fact that there were great choices of music being played all night and if you're open to making new friends, there are high chances that you will walk away with more friends than you originally came with.

The downside is that like all popular nightclubs, the queue can be very long but if you can wait, you will be rewarded with a one-of-a-kind experience that is simply out of this world!

Great view of the CBD

Visited Butterfactory only recently and enjoyed it more than I expected! I've been a regular of Zouk for the most part of my party life so I haven't seen anything above ground, much less with a view.

I was enthralled to find myself dancing with a backdrop of the beautiful Singapore River, Marina Bay Sands as well as the few iconic attractions of our city. It just adds on to the mythicality of the night, especially being lightheaded under the influence of alcohol.

The crowd was good, with just the right mix of guys and girls. It irks me whenever there's an overcrowding of guys at a club, I'd feel pressured and wouldn't be able to let loose and party.

The only thing about Butterfact is that it's dance floor is situated on the second level, meaning most would have to take the lift in order to get about. Imagine being trapped in a lift of drunkards on the verge of retching. EWWWW. I'll opt for the stairs. Haha!

Party with a view

How would you like the feeling of clubbing with the resplendent marina bay area as a backdrop to your dance floor? Well I’ll be the first to admit that, even as a local, I find partying with the gleaming marina bay sands in view is indeed pretty special.

And splendid views aside, the music here is also pretty good. Besides, as the preferred party spot for many international cabin crew, you can also get the chance to meet like minded people who will dhave plenty of great stories to share.

This is probably the best party spot if you are not looking to leave the city.

Nothing fantastic

The queue was insane when it first shifted to One Fullerton. You have to wait for hours just to get in. Been there twice when it open its door at One Fullerton. Then I stop going because the wait doesn't make it worthwhile. Personally I do not think there's anything special about this place. The music is not too bad but you can easily get the same music in other clubs. The place was too crowded and you don't even have space to dance or move around.

I was there again last week and I was surprised to find that it was rather empty. My friends and I reach there before 1am and we can easily find ourselves a table. Maybe with so many new clubs around the butter factory hype has die down.

Just another club...

I came to Butter Factory with a group of friends, and till now I still do not understand how it manages to stand out from the rest of the club. To me, Butter Factory is just another carbon copy of some of the clubs around Singapore, such as St James Power Station, or Rebel.

It played generic songs that one can find anywhere, not songs that pander to crowds and made them go wild. The Djs do not seem to know what to do, all they did was give out some plastic balloon thing for the crowds to slap together to make some noise.

While the crowd here is pretty awesome, I can't help feeling that more could have been done to improve the ambiance of the club, such as adding some platforms in the middle...

Not a place that produces butter

When i was first introduced to the butter factory, i honestly thought that it was a factory that produced butter. I only visited this place twice, and my first experience was horrible. The dance floor was so squeezy that I hardly had room to breathe and the ladies night free flow of drinks had such a long queue I only managed to get 2 drinks. The music was not fantastic either. I left the club at 2am, which is really early.

However, I decided to give it the benefit of doubt and I visited it one more time six months later, The crowd was just as bad. But this time, the music trumped it all. Every song that came up, the crowd was singing along to. The remixes were sick. You could groove to the music even without alcohol. That's how good the music is.

I would brave the crowd just to get another night grooving to the sickest remixes ever. Maybe there will be a third trip down there soon :)

Still feels like home.

When i just turned 18, my group of friends and i decided to go to The Butter Factory, hoping to have a fun-filled night. The first night i went was a Wednesday night so the ladies get to have free flow of house pour. The experience was exhilarating and we vowed to go there again. Few weeks after, we went again and i have to say, The Butter Factory did not disappoint us. The music is good to dance to, the atmosphere is as high as ever and with the great accompany, it was awesome.

A word of advise, it will be good for girls to be accompanied by their taller, bigger male friends as the place tends to get very packed in the club.

Be prepared to squeeze yourself through the crowd when you get in and out of the club. Sometimes, it gets so tough to even move an inch. If you are somebody who appreciates good music, great ambience, crowds and free drinks(for ladies on every Wednesdays), you should check it out at The Butter Factory.

Great music but bad crowd control

I have visited butter factory many times but it gets more disappointing with each visit. I don't deny that the music is great but everything else is just disappointing. There was free flow house pours on Wednesdays for ladies. However, the alcohol content in their drinks was so diluted that I felt like I was drinking juice. So I thought to myself that they probably did this to minimize the number of drunk ladies in the club.

Butter factory is pretty small. Hence, I am shocked at the way the handled the crowd. By 11pm, the entire club was packed. Literally packed and there was no way one could move without bumping into someone. It came to a point where I felt suffocated and I decided to leave. I wouldn't recommend Butter Factory to my friends, but probably just go once, take a look, and add this club to the list of clubs that they have been to. Other than that, no.

Crowded and uncivilised

I've been to The Butter Factory several times already, and each time I go, I feel like more of my soul is being ripped apart and fed to the demons that are the patrons of the club.

The music is good, the service is tolerable, and drink prices are average to say the least (at least when compared with other clubs in Singapore). What really makes this a deal breaker is the crowd that TBF attracts. This place seems to be filled with barbarians and hooligans. Fights break out close to every night, and conflicts amongst young punks spilling vulgarities are the norm. I've gotten into a fight every time I've stepped in; apparently my crimes include Iooking at a guy funny, accidentally touching his girlfriend, and laughing too loudly.

Well I'll be damned.
