If you are simply looking for places to drink and hangout with your friends without getting all sweaty on the dancefloor, why not check out some of our bars and pubs?

They are readily available all around Singapore, but here are just some of the top choices to get you going.

Clarke Quay

While it is already largely popular in the day – with a limitless choice of restaurants, cafes and retail spaces, Clarke Quay lights up in the night and is a widely popular choice for the insomniacs.
