Let’s be honest, regardless of venue, all alcoholic beverages in Singapore are expensive. This is mainly due to Singapore’s alcohol tax (S$88 per litre for hard liquors and wines, S$60 per litre for beers and ciders) that is charged on top of the 7% Goods and Services Tax; which is why if you’re planning a night out, it is pertinent to conduct research for a convenient place that caters to groups, and serves good drinks at affordable prices — or risk running up a high tab.
Take it from someone who has spent years searching for the best happy hour deals, these are the ones that are conveniently located and give you the best bang for your buck. Read on to find out where these 9 bars and restaurants are and get ready to be amazed at how much you’ve been overpaying for your drink.
Do note that all alcohol sales and consumption at bars and restaurants will have to stop by 10:30pm. This means that the last order for alcoholic beverages would be around 9:45pm and, regardless if you’ve finished them, wait staff will start clearing your cups at 10:15pm. Sounds like a bummer? Only a little because this means that social gatherings at bars will just have to start earlier and, if so, there’s a higher chance you can tap on happy hour promotions and still make it in time to catch the bus or train home.
Updated as of 2 March 2022. Best happy hour drink promotions are subject to change without prior notice. The legal age to buy and consume alcohol in Singapore is 18 years old. Please practice responsible drinking.
