10 Best Things To Do In Orchard After 10PM For Those Who Always Complain Things Close Too Early

Late-night things to do in Orchard


For us night owls, heading to bed at 10pm is more bane than boon. We have trouble drifting off to sleep; after all, at this hour the night is still young. And unfortunately for us, there are few places we can head to since most would have shuttered by this time.

Save for Orchard Road. If you thought this area was just for shopping, think again. Around these parts are places where night owls would feel right at home. From bowling lanes that close at 1am to eateries that are open 24/7, here are 10 things to do in Orchard after 10pm:


1. Game with friends at Kommune – Open till 1am on Fri & Sat


When it’s after hours, you could coop yourself up at home playing mobile games alone. Or, you could gather the squad to game together at Kommune from 82 Social House. It’s a gaming cafe that’s packed with games suitable for single players and large groups.

And we do mean packed. There are more than 80 different board games available that include crowd favourites like Catan and Uno. You’ll even find locally-made card games such as Chope and Kopi King.

2. Bowl a strike at K Bowling Club – Open till 1am


The word “bowling” may be in the name but there’s more to K Bowling Club than just knocking down pins. You’ll still get your bowling action at the 8 glow-in-the-dark lanes. But there are other activities here while you wait your turn to bowl.

Tucked behind the bowling lanes is an arcade filled with retro 16-bit games like Street Fighter and Puzzle Bobble for those who miss playing old-school video games. There’s even a pool table and electronic dartboards to keep you occupied throughout the night.

The non-competitive sort can chill at the lounge that serves drinks and snacks. Otherwise, there are karaoke booths for a private singing sesh. These are noise-proof, so feel free to croon your heart out even if you don’t have the pipes like Beyoncé or Adele.

Price: From $11/pax per game, excluding shoe rental

3. Hit a bullseye at KHIP Darts – Open till 1am daily


If you’re up for a little competition among friends, KHIP Darts makes it easy to settle scores with their electronic dartboards. Just step up to the throwline, aim, and shoot. The dartboard immediately captures points and fouls, so there’s no need to mentally take notes of who’s in the lead.

The electronic dartboards have settings for various pub versions of the game too. It’s not just about racking up as many bullseyes as you can when you play games like Killer and Cricket. Strategy and skill will come into play as you try to outdo one another.
