Where to go clubbing in Singapore
The Yang Club for a nightclub with live music
YANG Club is a great place to catch live music in a majestic building at Clarke Quay. The River House, which has been listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, was originally a 19th-century riverfront go-down, later converted into the palatial residence of a wealthy trader. It used to be Indochine’s Forbidden City. While maintaining its historic structure and façade, it has been extensively remodelled internally into a collection of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, offering some of the best nightlife in Singapore.
This nightclub in Singapore has an energetic atmosphere delivered by the groups and DJs who perform here. Don’t miss the seven-piece band Gravity, which plays everything from current pop hits to old-school rock and R&B numbers every Tuesday. It’s a fun night out! Check out their website for what kind of music is on that night.
Vibes: Indoor outdoor, with loads of space to disco dance, as well as sit and chill.
Wear: Strictly no slippers, shorts and singlets

Zouk Singapore for legendary DJs
A firm fixture on the Singapore nightlife scene, Zouk has been packed to the rafters with young, clued-in clubbers each week for over 25 years and counting. Recently ranked #10 of DJ Mag Top 100 Club’s poll, this nightclub in Singapore is known for roping in some of the world’s most legendary DJs onto the decks, including Hardwell, Tiseto and Disclosure.
Vibes: Spanning two floors, the massive club hosts three concepts: the main room (Zouk), hip hop and R&B spot Phuture and plush lounge Capital. There’s also Red Tail, a gastro bar that serves craft cocktails, vino and beers, as well as sharing bites for your pre-game disco fuel.
Wear: Stylish and clubby – no slippers or open-toe sandals!
Opening times: Wednesdays and Fridays 10pm to 3am and Saturdays 10pm to 4am
CÉ LA VI for a nightclub with a view
Perched on the top of MBS, this club’s view is reason enough to visit. It’s part open-air but very well air-conned to boot, so there’s little chance of getting too sweaty and putting people off while you disco dance!
The nightly DJ belts out a host of cool tunes. This isn’t a live band kinda number.
Vibes: Trendy and cool nightlife – quite touristy but a fab place to take visiting friends. A slightly older, seemingly wealthy crowd; think the cast of Crazy Rich Asians, alongside tourists from the hotel beneath with a few expats mixed in.
Wear: Nothing too frumpy please! This is a pretty slick and international venue and warrants a bit of designer-wear and some serious heels. Men, feel free to wear a crisp linen shirt, smart slacks and a good wristwatch!
Opening times: Open weekends, 11am till late, and weekdays, 12pm till late
