worldwide club guide: singapore

nightlife in singapore

To be brutally honest, I don’t really care for Singapore much – in fact, I care for it very little. But I travel a lot and Changi Airport is one of south-east Asia’s biggest hubs, so I’ve visited the tiny island nation more times than I like to remember. Apart from Singapore noodles and Singapore Slings, the city-state has two other things that can make stop-overs fun – shopping and super-clubs.

Having been open for 17 years now, Zouk (17 Jiak Kim Street) is a legendary name in Singapore clubbing with a reputation that stretches internationally. An industrial-style club located in an old warehouse it's popular with the cool crowd and with three different areas it should please lovers of all forms of dance music. If you can, make friends with a local and get into the Member's Bar on the second level (only card carrying regulars are allowed access) but if you can’t you’ll still be entertained with local DJs and big-name international guests. Watch out for unfriendly bouncers and long bar queues but the drinks are strong and the party goes late on the weekend.

St James Power Station (3 Sentosa Gateway) is a giant entertainment complex in an old coal power station where there are bars and live music to suit almost any taste. If clubbing is what you’re after the best choice is Power House – a massive space with a 5 storey high ceiling and an impressive sound and lighting set-up. If you wanna wave your hands in the air and party like you just don’t care, this is a good place to do it.

Zirca (The Cannery, Clarke Quay) is the new Singapore super-club on the block – although it’s actually the old Ministry of Sound with a makeover. It adds elements of circus and cabaret to the usual dance club action and the interior is slickly designed. Good fun, open late – you can always sleep on your morning flight out!
