Singapore is the quintessential holiday hot spot. And most seasoned travellers feel they know every aspect of the city. But here's a surprise, despite you knowing all top night spots in Singapore, there are a few places that guarantee to surprise. Here is a look at hidden nightclubs in Singapore.

1

Check Out the Elephant Room

Located in Keong Saik, this bar is housed on the 2nd floor of a shophouse. The area alone is quite popular for its collection of quirky and sophisticated bars, thus offering you a chance to enjoy bar-hopping one night. The décor at this bar has strong Indian roots, and you will be surrounded by rich magentas and surfaces bearing traditional Jaali patterns, thus, giving the place an exotic magical vibe. The cocktails served there are more than exotic. Examples include the King of Toddy, which is a heady mix of toddy, amaranth, buttermilk and pickled palm seed. The vibrant Keong Saik area is only 10 minutes from Citadines Mount Sophia Singapore, a fine example of a popular Singapore Apart'hotel.

Café Colbar for Vintage Vibes

Café Colbar is a lovely colonial style watering hole, that was once an army barrack for British soldiers in 1953. Thus, the bar manages to retain the 50s vibes, which is, in fact, the most endearing trait of the place. It is complete with an antique weighing machine and vintage photos of the Colbar football team. Located in a cosy spot along Whitchurch Road, Café Colbar is famous for its craft beer and a selection of tasty Hainanese and western food.

The Well-Hidden Native Bar

Native is an award-winning bar, located off the beaten track. The awesome bar is found within a no-fuss little shophouse. Find the place at 52A Amoy Street for an unforgettable night. The most popular feature of this bar is the cocktail menu; not too long but containing the right number of elixirs to bring a smile to your lips. There is even a micro-distillery located on the upper floor, which patrons can tour for some boozy information.

Bar Stories

Located along the vibrant Haji Lane, this bar is kind of hard to spot. This is one of the first customised bars to be set up in Singapore. The selling factor at this popular spot is the lack of a menu; instead, the barkeeper will make a custom drink to fit your palette. All you have to do is talk to the mixologist behind the counter and he will mix up a drink that has your personality in every sip.

5

The Other Room

The other room is a bar for the stylish. The place is a well-kept secret and oh so, exclusive that it is described as a watering hole for the discerning. The place is managed by Dario Knox, a master bartender responsible for the impressive drinks on offer. The Other Room menu features a range of classical drinks that have been given a modern twist.
