Grab your friends, clean your dancing shoes. It’s time to bop, hop and rave at these insane parties.
Truth: Singapore is a city that never sleeps. Whether you’re up looking for late night supper haunts or late night shopping, there’s always something for us nocturnal creatures. In this monthly round up, we’re giving you one more (or a few more for the hardcore party freaks) to stay out past your bedtime. From themed parties to beach shindigs to just all out maniacal raving, here’s the lowdown on June’s late night shenanigans.
Herstory @ Canvas
Herstory parties are certainly renowned for their untamable fun. Who can forget that feral-like jungle party in April? This June, they’re taking a page right out of De Wallen, Amsterdam’s famous red-light district. Experience the infamous neon-lit windows as the performers move to the electrifying beats. Get yourself some UV tattoos at the door, grab your booze, double check your dancing shoes, and you’re ready to get your glow on.
Herstory: Get Your Glow On, 2 June, Canvas, 20 Upper Circular Road, #B1-01 The Riverwalk, Singapore 058416
EmonightSG @ Kilo Lounge
Ladies and gents, this is your opportunity to half sing, half scream as you sashay down memory lane. Featuring genres such as pop punk, punk rock and alt rock from the 2000s, expect to find yourself alongside people who pour every bit of emotion into their voice as they jam to the rhythms and lyrics of Boys Like Girls, Taking Back Sunday, and My Chemical Romance. Don’t be surprised when you realise everyone can belt out the lyrics word for word and with melodic precision: these beats enjoyed endless replays on those Sony Ericsson Walkmans. You’ve gotta experience this monthly event at least once (call in sick the next day if you must!)
EmonightSG, 6 June, Kilo Lounge, 21 Tanjong Pagar Road, #01-02/04, Singapore 088444
Sunset Madness Pool Party @ Baywatch poolside
Who’s up for a poolside party? Sunset Madness Pool Party is happening at Hotel Jen’s rooftop, so you can take in that picturesque view of Singapore. Chill out to lounge rhythms from Lazy BEATz and as the night progresses, rave to deep house music from local DJ Dr Foo. Add a BBQ station, sunbeds, and cocktails and you’ve got yourself a lit Saturday night. Oh, did we mention? Entry is free.
Sunset Madness Pool Party, 9 June, Hotel Jen Orchard Gateway, 277 Orchard Road, Singapore 238858
KAT DJ: Straight from Manila
KAT DJ is certainly no beginner in the party scene. One of the only female DJs from Manila, she’s performed alongside EDM giants such as Alesso, Afrojack and Steve Aoki, and played sets at music festivals across Hong Kong, Malaysia and Cambodia. With this much experience under her belt, surely bringing the house down at Bang Bang will be an easy task for her.
KAT DJ: Straight from Manila, 9 June, Bang Bang, 7 Raffles Boulevard, Marina Square, Singapore 039595
Eatmepoptart X Hopheads: The Kids Are Alright
For all those out there who can’t decide which generation of music to put on in the mornings, here’s one for you. Join mad moshing group Eatmepoptart as they bring you a rainbow of hits: 80s, 90s, 2000s and even today’s best tunes. This is all about promises to be pop round the clock and a roller coaster of emotions. Let your hair down and relive your lost youth; it’s okay to feel like a kid again.
The Kids Are Alright, 9 June, Hopheads, 178 Clemenceau Ave, #B1-00 Haw Par Glass Tower, Singapore 239926
Esquina X Barcardi House Parties: Little Havana Fiesta
Our favourite Spanish tapas bar Esquina is teaming up with Bacardi House Parties to produce a day of non-stop eating, drinking and merrymaking. Kick off the party with the rum classics such as mojitos (we heard it’s being served in a huge bucket) and Cuba libres. Feast on ropa vieja and tortilla de patata while you’re at it too. In classic Cuban style, show up in colourful outfits and don’t leave your party spirit at home!
Little Havana Fiesta, 10 June, Esquina, 16 Jiak Chuan Rd, Singapore 089267
Ultra After Party
15 & 16 June
Even Ultra isn’t enough for our party-crazy generation. Thankfully Ce La Vi understands that common predicament and has graciously opened its doors to us maniacs. Embrace this golden opportunity to continue partying with a view at the very top of Marina Bay Sands. Rave alongside your favourite DJs who share the same thought as us: the city shall not sleep tonight.
Ultra After Party, 15 & 16 June, Ce La Vi, 1 Bayfront Avenue Marina Bay Sands Tower 3, Singapore 018971
Back to 90’s @ Blu Jaz
It’s time to dig out those old baggy jeans, DJ K and DJ Andrew Chow will be taking you on a ride to the golden era of hip hop, R&B and pop. Shimmy shimmy ya to the superstars of the 90s: think Jay Z, Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube. It promises to be a night of nostalgia at Blu Jaz Cafe, so bring your crew!
Back To 90’s, 16 June, Blu Jaz Cafe, 11 Bali Lane, Historic Kampong Glam, Singapore 189848
Flochella @ Tanjong Beach Club
A sumptuous coastal dinner, barefoot dancing in the sand, and a view of the clementine in the sky emanating an orange hue as it sets. This is Flochella. On this magical night, groove to amazing party beats by Fat Fish Familia DJ Orio Leshem and finish off the night by jumping in the pool with giant floats. Come in your best tropical themed outfits, this party is happening rain or shine!

To sweeten the deal, the best dressed partygoer will win a stay at the Swissôtel Nankai Osaka in Japan, so bring your A game!
