6 Themed Clubbing Nights In Singapore For Non-Mainstream Clubbers

Unique Themed Nights in Local Nightspots


A rite of passage for most Singaporean youths, going for a clubbing sesh is akin to getting the first sip of adulthood. That said, a typical club night involves blindly heading to Clarke Quay, entering the club with the shortest line and raving to the same ol’ EDM beats.

Since everyone has unique tastes and preferences, make the most of a late night out by hitting the clubs that best cater to you – from those that play your jams or those that offer fun themed nights. Here is a list of 7 clubs that offer a unique clubbing experience.


1. EMONIGHTSG: The B-Sides at Cherry – for grown up emo kids

Step into Lulu’s Lounge and you’ll notice how its interior is full of juxtaposition. For instance, just below the ritzy chandelier in the reception area is an old beat-up jukebox. In the main area lies a sleek, velvet couch backed against a bare, brick wall laced with graffiti.
