If you're wondering about where to go at night, consider the following options:
Singapore's ladies' night is on Wednesday in most bars, and on Thursday in a few others. It's no surprise then to see that most interns in Singapore seem to focus on Wednesday night when making party plans... At the moment, your best chance to meet fellow interns is at the Insomnia from 9pm onwards. You can find the Insomnia at Chijmes, along with other favorites, such as the Liberte Bar and the club China Jump.
The biggest and internationally most recognized club in town is Zouk, which you can practically only reach by taxi. Go there on Friday or Saturday night, and watch out for the club's special events, such as the beach party or the Halloween party. Zouk really consists of three clubs, namely Zouk itself, Phuture and Velvet Underground, which play Techno/House, Hip Hop and House music, respectively. If you enter the place through the Velvet Underground entrance, you have to buy a ticket that is valid for all three clubs (S$30/S$35 for girls/guys). Otherwise you only buy a ticket that is valid for Zouk and Phuture (S$25/S$28 for girls/guys). Tickets include two free drinks. Also make sure that you go to ZoukOut, if you happen to be around! ZoukOut is the biggest outdoor music festival in Singapore, it lasts for two consecutive nights, and features some of the world's best DJs on several stages.
Clarke Quay is probably one of the hippest places to go nowadays - after the place's complete makeover. It currently hosts clubs like Attica, Ministry of Sound, 1Nite Stand, and a number of nice bars such as IndoChine's Forbidden City or Hooters.
If you like R&B music, you might want to check out China Black, which is located close to Orchard Road's upper end (where the Lido movie theater is).
Finally -and once you're on Mohammed Sultan Road- you should consider going to dbl O (pronounce double-O), which is both a bar and a very stylish dance club. The music is the same as at Zouk, and this place tends to get really full after 10pm. So, unless you want to wait in line for an hour, you should make sure that you get there by around 9:30pm.
There are certainly more dance clubs in Singapore, but hey, this website is not a travel guide!!! The following places are other popular hangouts among interns: the New Asia Bar, located at the top of the Swissotel, offers a great view of Singapore's skyline; Bar None, located in the basement of the Mariott Hotel on Orchard Road, has one of the best live bands in the city; the En Lounge, located on Mohammed Sultan Road, can be a good place to chill out (among with the other bars around it); the Acid Bar, located on Emerald Hill Road (near Somerset MRT) is another nice place to chill.
For bars you should consider going to Carnegie's (ladies's night on Wednesday - free Champagne!), where you can also dance on the bar! If you like dancing on bars, just walk down Mohammed Sultan Road and you'll find a few other places that also allow you to do that. Boat Quai is Singapore's tourist spot No.1, but you can get a pitcher of beer for S$18 in some of the bars towards the end (going to Clarke Quai). It is possible to bargain down the price, so give it a try! Clarke Quai has a number of nice restaurants where you can sit outside, and it also has Asia's first Hooters restaurant, which you definitely would not expect in Singapore!!! Holland Village offers you another decent stretch of bars, but it's sort of difficult to reach unless you live in the area. Finally, it's worth walking up Emerald Hill Road beyond Acid Bar, as there a a number of nice other places that allow you to relax inside or in front of the historical shophouses. Beware of the new smoking rules
in many bars and clubs around Singapore. Some people have been spotted using the electronic cigarette to avoid the smoking ban.
Movie theaters in Singapore are generally cheap compared to international standards. Expect to pay between S$6 and S$8 for any movie.
A good bowling alley can be found at Cineleisure at Orchard Road.
