Nightclubs, pubs and bars in Singapore
Nice to hear about your trip. Singapore is vibrant , bustling and well known for its cleanliness as well as a medley of various cultural identities. As Lonely Planet puts it
Ditch the image of Singapore as a dull, sterile Utopia - scratch the surface and you'll discover a strange brew of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Western cultures, a rich social stew that's anything but boring.

Ph: 6431-5681; 6837-3322
Hours: Sun.-Wed. 3 pm-1 am, Thurs.-Sat. 3 pm-3 am
The New Asia Bar is probably the best place for sundowners with happy hours extending till 8 PM. This is where your nightlife can get a really exciting! This bar is located on the 71st floor of the Swissotel Stamford. Two floors of bar space, magnificent views of the city and its skyline and a fashionable clientele are what you should expect here.
Even the floors are angled at a 20 degree slant to give you a fabulous experience! The DJ here is awesome and so is the collection of drinks and cocktails in particular. People frequent this place as much for the view and the experience as is for the drinks.

Here is a remark from a visitor
New Asia Bar is definetely one of the most unique and exclusive bars in Singapore. A panorama view over down town Singapore in the tallest hotel in Southeast Asia makes it worth a visit. Especially when the so called "heli-pad parties" is on. The party starts at the Heli-pad at the roof top of the building and continues inside the bar with DJ's.

If you visit Singapore and are looking for a special//memorable evening , then this is the place to go. I found it quite hard to find (it's on the 71st floor of the Stamford hotel, you need to go up a special elevator from the ground floor entrance of the shopping plaza - ask one of the employees if you're not sure and they'll be happy to help.).
You may need to reserve a table on busy evenings. Basically, this bar does what you'd expect - it's classy, pricey, and commands spectacular views north .The bar atmosphere is "chilled out" and modern, quite dark with coloured mood lighting, and feels like a slightly more atmospheric bar in a nice hotel.

Zouk is THE pub/bar to party and chill out. Break free from boredome and hangout with your friends. They play great music tunes- techno, pop/rock and some remix. Sometimes when there are events, they'll set up a temporary stage to hold performances. It's great here, come join the party!

Been there last Sunday and the jazz jamming was amazing. The spectrum of instruments played was awesome and the musicians came from all over including Latin America and local Singapore. If you are in Singapore and love jazz, this place is a MUST on your itinerary.
