Prefer quirky to classic? Head down to this delightfully kitschy little bar (pictured above) tucked away in the Red Dot Traffic Building – one of our favourite buildings in Singapore.

There’s much to try here, so go crazy because cocktails go for $15, wine at $7, house pour spirits at $8 and beers at $9 from 4-8pm daily.

Don’t Tell Mama
You certainly won’t want to tell Mama about your boozy shenanigans at this Korean/Mexican bar-restaurant. After all, with pints of Stella and Hoegaarden going for $10 and $11 respectively, and a slew of Korean-inspired tacos and quesadillas, you’ll find yourself here way too late, even on work nights. A trio of Corona, Sol and Heineken also goes for $25 while three bottles of Hite will set you back just $20. Happy hour runs from Mon-Sat, 5pm-8pm.
Don’t Tell Mama, 52 Tanjong Pagar Road, Singapore 088473. p. 6221 2007.
Quietly tucked away under Block 7 next to Tanjong Pagar Plaza, you’ll find this casual hole-in-the-wall bar with happy hour offers on all draft beers. From Mon-Sat, from opening ’til 8pm, you’ll get a pint of Guinness, Kilkenny or even Erdinger white and dark ales for just $10++. The food here ain’t too shabby either; definitely try the crispy pork belly if you need a coupla bites with your beer.
Bluemist, 7 Tanjong Pagar Plaza, #01-03, Singapore 081007. p. 6220 1820.
A Vietnamese pho joint isn’t the first place you’d go to look for happy hour beers, but Pho Stop stocks quite the selection of tasty pints. Grab a pint of Asahi or Guinness for just $12, or bottles of tiger at $9 from Monday to Saturday, 12pm-9pm. And as an added bonus, you can stave off any potential hangovers with a hearty bowl of pho!

Livening up the already-animated Club Street is this new waterhole that pretty much cuts to the chase in its specialty – it’s daily happy hour until 8pm will get you a Jim Beam with mixer for $10, or a Jim Beam cocktail for $12. Fancy cooling off with a beer instead? Tiger on tap is just $10.
Bourbon Street, 72 Duxton Road, Singapore 089531. p. 6221 1670.
Just next door to Hopscotch is this quiet white-collar haunt popular with the after work crowd. Pop by for a tipple between Monday to Friday, 3pm-10pm, and you’ll get a pint of draught beer for $14.80. Buckets of four Asahi or Stella Artois also go for the very affordable price of $32.
