For guzzlers who want hearty bar food
Brewerkz is an American-inspired microbrewery for lovers of the fermented, foamy liquid. Besides home-brewed beer, quality American chomps are available at this largely al fresco joint. Book yourself an outdoor spot – those are the best seats in the house. The snack sampler (fried calamari, chicken wings, mini-sausages and fried cheese sticks, $52) is good for sharing among four people, or six people with smaller appetites. Try the signature beers: the Golden Ale ($9 for 300ml) or the European classic, Pilsner ($9 for 300ml).
Book a table here (Stadium) and here (Riverside Point)| Address: 2 Stadium Walk, #01-06/07/K1 Singapore Indoor Stadium | Opening hours: Mon-Wed 5pm-midnight; Thu noon-midnight; Fri noon-1am; Sat 11am-1am; Sun 11am-midnight


New Asia Bar
For late-night partygoers
Have a swig of Moet and Chandon Imperial ($27 for a glass) at the glamorous New Asia Bar – perched 71 stories high and oozing deluxe swagger vibes. Finger food such as cube sashimi tuna ($25) and Chinese roast duck pizza ($36) are recommended if you've cash to spare, although window seats do cost more if you don’t fulfill a minimum bill. We also recommend the Yamazaki 18-year-old Japanese whiskey ($32), and the grand Cosmopolitan cocktail (Smirnoff black vodka, grand marnier, cranberry and lime, $15) for those who want something lighter. 
Book a table here| Address: 2 Stamford Road, Level 71 Swissotel The Stamford | Opening hours: Sun-Tue 3pm-1am; Wed & Thu 3pm-2am; Fri, Sat & eve of public holidays 3pm-3am; last Thu of the month 3pm-4pm


The Screening Room
For movie buffs with discerning palates
One of the older and still popular hangouts at Ann Siang Road is The Screening Room, occupying five floors in a shophouse. It is a regular draw for movie buffs (watch a movie for free with a minimum spending of $15 on food or drink) and foodies alike. The in-house restaurant, Mamounia, offers tapas-like dishes such as patatas bravas (potato cubes in spicy sauce, $8) and charcoal-grilled lamb kebabs ($30). Move on to the lounge in the basement and kick back with a glass of wine. We recommend the Chateau de la Roulerie Coteaux ($20 per glass). Do book early for your own velvet-cushioned spot.
Book a table here| Address: 12 Ann Siang Road | Opening hours: Mon-Thu noon-11pm; Fri noon-midnight; Sat 5pm-midnight. Lounge hours: Mon-Thu 6pm-1am; Fri & Sat 6pm-3am


Raffles Courtyard and Gazebo bar
For drinks and food in a colonial setting
At the courtyard of the grand Raffles Hotel is the quiet, al fresco-set Raffles Courtyard. This colonial-style cocktail bar is reminiscent of an idylic period in the past, with white arches flanked by tropical palms and native plants. The bar itself is housed in a gazebo and serves up cocktails such as the Superstar (bacardi limon, coconut Monin, pink guava, orange juice and star fruit, $25) as well as the iconic Singapore Sling ($26). It's not all about drinking: the linguini with basil pesto ($21) is recommended, among other Italian classics. 
Book a table here | Address: 1 Beach Road, Raffles Hotel | Opening hours: Daily noon-10pm


The Queen & Mangosteen
For British pub food  

Homesick Britons should feel right at home at this 200-seater gastropub in VivoCity – from the decor (art deco paintings of Queen Elizabeth II’s mugshot, for one) to the food options, such as pork bangers & mash ($26). The plump pan-seared black cod ($34) injected with piquant chili crab sauce is also worth a try. The cavernous eatery has an al fresco area that offers views of the waterfront and Sentosa island.
Book a table here | Address: 1 Harbourfront Walk, #01-106/107 VivoCity | Opening hours: Sun-Thu noon-midnight; Fri & Sat noon-1am
