7 Coolest CCs In Singapore With Features Like Futuristic Shops, Bowling Alleys & A Butterfly Garden

Community Clubs in Singapore

Hitting the clubs sure sounds like fun even if we’re not referring to the bustling nightlife. We assure you that some of our Community Clubs (CCs) in Singapore are just as cool and hip. As of writing this, there are 108 CCs with plans for more in the future. From the lengthy list, we’re highlighting 7 to add to your list of places to hang out.

1. Woodlands Galaxy CC – Stargaze at the observatory for just $1

Anyone who has joked about Woodlands being so ulu you need a passport to go there, the joke’s on you. The neighbourhood has one of the coolest CCs in Singapore with a stargazing observatory you can visit for just $1.

It’s not that inaccessible either. Woodlands Galaxy CC Observatory just a short walk from Admiralty MRT station. If you’re in the mood for even more entertainment, check out the karaoke lounge, occasional film screenings, and the mahjong club that gathers frequently to play.

Nestled in one of the relatively smaller and unassuming CCs is a futuristic unmanned convenience store. Yup, Hougang CC’s Octobox store has no cashiers. Enter by registering your palm as a first-time customer and from then on, you’ll be able to scan your palm to get into the store and make payments at the self-checkout counters.

You don’t even have to scan each item individually. Just place all your snacks on the reader and it’ll automatically calculate the total bill in a jiffy.

While we were browsing through the racks, we also noticed a lot of uncommon snacks, especially those from Japan. Some of them cost as low as $1 and you’ll find drinks in the refrigerator section for even lower prices.

Visit these cool Community Clubs in Singapore for more than sports

One Punggol CC

Thanks to the pandemic most of us had started thinking of CCs as the place to get our vaccinations. But there’s so much more to them. From being able to book sports facilities at very affordable rates to attending community events, these CCs are there for residents to take advantage of. 

While we’ve highlighted some of the cooler ones of the lot, do check out the others in your neighbourhood for activities and upcoming events. Psst … most of the CCs are screening the World Cup for free this month too.
