This new Boat Quay bar promises an “American KTV” experience

When it comes to a night out at a karaoke joint in Singapore, there are generally two kinds of experiences that await – one with expensive and boring drinks and another where singing isn’t the main attraction (you know what we mean). Skinny’s Lounge is here to change that.

Touted as an “American KTV”, Skinny’s Lounge is the creation of former Cufflink Club and Vasco bartender Nick Haas. The grungy Boat Quay bar is decked out with disco lights and graffitied windows, and features a private KTV room that can accommodate up to ten people. Targeting the late night crowd, they close at 3am on weekdays and 4am on weekends.
While that’s all pretty cool, the affordable cocktails at Skinny’s are what you’ll be writing home about. Their “Fast and Cheap” cocktails, including the Americano and the tequila-based Paloma, are available for just $15 while their classic cocktails, like the Daiquiri No. 1 and caipiroska, will only set you back $18 (you can take up their “Make it Nice” option and get your classics made with premium spirits for an extra $3). You can also order a tower of Pimm’s Cup that serves 12 people ($200). Food highlights include hotdogs ($12) and jumbo pretzels ($10).
