Bars around Singapore Club Street have been popping up on a regular basis over the last couple of years, making this one of Singapore’s best places to go bar-hopping right in the heart of Chinatown. Most of our handpicked entries specialise in quality cocktails, but with fine food, lively music and impressive interior designs all thrown into the mix, these bars offer so much more than just shaken up booze and juice in a glass.
Find the ever-hip and happening Club Street by walking up Cross Street from the nearby Teylok Ayer MRT station. Alternatively, walk up the pretty Ann Siang Hill (which is so close, we have also considered it within this list of bars on Club Street).

Step inside this converted shop house and you’ll instantly feel like you’ve escaped the city, with its bright warm colours, tropical garden greenery, jungle props and giant Buddhist statues dotted around the spacious bar.
Downstairs you’ll find more of a relaxed vibe, with a mix of city workers and young locals lounging around with a pint or cocktail in hand, whilst the upstairs IndoChine Restaurant presents a slightly more formal dining experience. In fitting with the decor, the menu encompasses most parts of Southeast Asia, full of Vietnamese, Thai, Laotian and Cambodian delights that we can’t pronounce. Fortunately, there is a translation provided and so we can recommend their green curry with duck (S$24), crispy soft shell crab (S$30) and of course, sticky rice with mango for dessert (S$10).

Whilst we love the distinctly Spanish atmosphere, authentic decor, and long list of cocktails concocted by their in-house mixologists, what really makes Los Primos one of our go-to Club Street bars is the fact that their kitchen stays open late, perfect for a post-club alternative to McDonalds.
Whilst most bars on Club Street – and all across Singapore – stop serving food at around 22:00, you can order off Los Primos’ impressive a la carte menu until midnight, and the tapas is available until as late as 02:00. The tastiest late night treat here in our book is the Jamon Serrono (S$20.90 for 100 grams) although their Spanish tortilla or meatballs (both S$14.90) soak up all the beer just as well. Sit inside for their air-conditioning or outside on the street to watch the world go by. Happy Hour: 18:00-20:00 every day.
- Opening Hours: Lunch: Mon - Fri 12:00 – 15:00 (Closed on Sat & Sun);
Dinner: Sun - Thu 18:00 - 23:30, Fri - Sat 18:00 - 01:00

83 has closed.
Deriving its name from its address (so there’s no excuses for not finding 83 on Club Street), this quirky bar offers slightly more generous seating options than some of its neighbours, and the whole decor of the place is pretty funky too. The huge comic book-esque poster sits next to an Art Deco installation, some of the seating looks like it’s been picked up from a car boot sale, yet the main bar and light fixtures are distinctly modern.
The cocktail list here is pretty extensive and they also do lots of tasty European beers as well as a satisfying array of pub bites like fish and chips (S$14) and a trio of mini burgers (S$24). If that’s not enough to convince you that 83 is one of the best bars on Club Street, then their mammoth four-hour happy hour from 17:00 every day surely will, with spirits from S$5++ and pints from S$9++.
- Opening Hours: Mon - Sat 17:00 until late (Closed on Sundays)

One of the most recognisable bars around Club Street with its almost billboard-like exterior fronting a grey-on-white colonial building, Oxwell and Co. serves up a fine range of cocktails and mains all in some rather flamboyant settings.
Sitting near the corner of Ann Siang Hill and Club Street, this self-proclaimed gastrobar has numerous area all offering something a little a different, including a rooftop dinging area for a more formal setting, downstairs bar and some alfresco seating outside. House drinks are all poured from some pretty quirky plumbing-style taps, including their own Oxhorn Larger (S$12), as well as Pimms, sangria and Prosecco. There’s also a study range of pub grub as well as free bar bites when you spend enough.
- Opening Hours: Tues - Sat 10:00-late

Gem Bar has really evolved from to your run-of-the-mill after work drinking spot to one of the most lively and diverse bars around Club Street. The smart Victorian themed decor and cute outside alfresco garden are well and good, but what’ll really make you coming back to Gem Bar is their generous drinks promos and line-up of quality DJs throughout the week.
Monday is S$5 happy hour all night long; Tuesday is buy-one-get-one free on house drinks; and cocktails are all S$8 each all night on Thursday. In-house DJs play house, tech, dub, hip-hop and funk from Wednesday-Saturday, further bringing this once ordinary Club Street bar to life. As for the food, think posh pub grub like burgers, pizzas, fish and chips and sausages and mash (most mains S$15-25).
