Enjoy your Scotch, single malt, or bourbon without worry as these bars around Clarke Quay, Duxton, Chinatown, and Tanjong Pagar roll out whisky happy hour deals
Cocktails and beers might be fine if you’re planning to paint the town red, but there is nothing quite like kicking back and savouring the oaky, intricate flavour of a glass of whisky on the rocks. Here’re nine happy hour deals for whisky connoisseurs to enjoy their spirits without breaking the bank.
No fancy-schmancy gimmicks, no flamboyant concept, no secret passwords for entry; this is one fuss-free dive bar to simply enjoy a drink with your gals and mates. Helmed by the trusty hands behind Jigger & Pony, Gibson and Humpback, The Flagship is all about rock & roll and whiskies. The Flagship’s happy hour from Monday to Saturday, 5pm-8pm, offers house pour whiskies for just $12++. Being a whisky centric bar, its house pour offerings are a class above the rest – you can expect Monkey Shoulder scotch, Bulleit Bourbon, and Rittenhouse Rye.
The Flagship, 20 Bukit Pasoh Road, Singapore 089834.
Despite its distinctly high-end metropolitan surroundings, this brasserie and bar offers a mean happy hour from Monday to Thursday 9am to 8pm, and all day on Fridays (oh my!). Let your hair down and enjoy $8.50 housepours which include spirits, whiskies, and bottled beers so even your non-whisky-loving friends can get in on the action.
The Exchange, Asia Square Tower 1, 8 Marina View, Singapore 018960, p. 6636 1200.
This shots bar is well-known for their staggering selection of shots and even crazier happy hour deals: $6 for all selected shots, bottled bottles, and housespours (including whisky) from 6.30pm till 9pm daily.. It also opens ’til 3.30am on party nights (Wednesday, Friday and Saturday), and that means, if you’re gutsy enough (or have an infinite alcohol tolerance), you have time to sample all 130 shots at The Chupitos Bar. G’luck!
The Chupitos Bar, #01-05, 3B River Valley Road, Clarke Quay, Singapore 179021.
This Scottish whisky drinking den plays a real good mix of rock & roll tunes, and it’s no wonder why patrons are always seen dancing ’til closing time. Here’s how you get some liquid courage before getting jiggy on the dance floor: down a couple of whiskies that are 50% off ’til 9pm every day.
