J Bar is one of Singapore's premier downtown contemporary bars. Sleek and stylish, it is home to top local bands - making it the excellent venue for unwinding while enjoying drinks and tapas. Let the repertoire of songs and dances mesmerise you as you kick start your weekend parties!

Was here on a Wednesday night when there was a live band. At first, the live band sucked, then after the break, it got a lot better to the point of amaze-balls. So I said to my date, “WOW, he’s an alcoholic singer. That’s why he got a lot better after the break because he has some alcohol to perk him up.”
Then weeks later, on 8 days, I saw a very familiar face and OMG!! the singer is Douglas O, the sexiest man in Singapore in the 80s, the good old days when there was zero muscle tone and men didn’t need to gym.
But sadly, on that day, the clients–mostly executives from nearby offices–were all outside on the balcony. Only my date and I were inside, listening to Douglas O, as we held hands.
The service was decent too. When we told the liquor promoter that we didn’t want a bottle, she was very polite and still served us promptly.
The ambience reminded me of a sad little bar that lonely people come to nurse their broken hearts, which is kinda nice. Full of solitude and isolation. Quite lovely.
Would definitely drop in again.
When the weather permits, my colleagues and I prefer to sit outside 'cos the volume of the live band can get very loud, making it impossible to chat even when you're shouting. We frequent J Bar 'cos of the One for One happy hour promotion, which also extends to the hard liqour. Most of the waiters are ok here - friendly and more or less prompt. The cocktails are not consistent though - sometimes they're quite strong, sometimes we feel we've been cheated of the alcohol.
