5 unique drinking spots in Singapore

From ratchet dive bars to classy cocktail joints, there’s no shortage of drinking places in Singapore to enjoy your tipple the way you like it best. But setting themselves apart from them all are a few venues that offer something most other places don’t—an extra pizazz that unwittingly and continually lures you in.

We check out the likes of Fish Pool, a Champagne-fuelled raw bar with a bubbling pool sometimes inhabited by mermaids; Telok Ayer Arts Club, where you’ll find a rotating cocktail in line with the venue’s current art exhibition; NINETEEN80, where retro arcade games easily bring out the nostalgia in us; Operation Dagger, an underground bar that offers Singapore’s only cocktail omakase menu; and Cool Cats, a hidden jazz bar that will have you lounging to smooth tunes all evening.
