Singapore is now a major tourist hub and one of the most visited destinations in the world. The world renowned shopping street, Orchard Road, is filled with shopping malls, cafes, bars and entertainment. In this article we will take a look at some of the best places to have an ice cold Singapore beer.
5. Cuscaden Patio Cafe & Pub
Located inside the Ming Arcade on Orchard Road, the Cuscaden Patio Cafe & Pub has a excellent atmosphere. This pub is more than 10 years old but still draws a sizable crowd on weekends. Beers and other adult beverages are available for cheap. You’ll spend only SGD 18 for a jug of 1.5 liters or SGD 30 for 6 bottles of San Miguel Light. If you can, come on a Tuesday, as that 1.5 liter jug is a mere SGD 12 only.
Location: Ming Arcade, 21 Cuscaden Road
4. Alley Bar
Alley Bar Singapore is truly a hidden gem. You travelers will be glad I told you about this place. True to its name, this place is actually located in an alleyway where you can enjoy a quiet cocktail with your friends. Alley Bar affords a nice view of the Orchard Road and serves delicious pizzas with your drinks to keep you going all night. Party on.
Location: 180 Orchard Road
3. No 5 Emerald Hill Cocktail Bar
The No 5 Emerald Hill Cocktail Bar is absolutely the most popular drinking joint among the locals. Apart from the regular Singapore beer selection, they serves shooters, contemporary cocktails, and an impressive variety of other beverages. The Happy Hour happens to be the longest in Singapore (that we know of). All in all, this place is a great choice for those who wish to gulp down a few beers at low prices (who doesn’t?)

2. Bar on 5
The Bar on 5 is aptly named, as it is located on the 5th floor of the uber luxurious Mandarin Orchard Hotel. Enjoy a wonderful view of the Orchard Road whilst sipping on cold beer at the bar. The Bar on 5 also offers a selection of whiskeys and martinis with great deals during Happy Hour. Order one of many excellent appetizers to complement your drinks. I recommend you come on a weekday, then you can relax and enjoy soulful R&B tunes while your friends back home are working at the office. The prices aren’t as low as some other locales, but if you want high quality, then Bar on 5 is the place to be.
Location: 333 Orchard Road
Located at the basement of the iconic Grand Hyatt, BRIX is the most popular entertainment hub in Singapore. Although you will get a good selection of beers here, it is the wine and whiskey bar that fuels the all night parties. The live music section has an outstanding selection of music – pop tunes, R&B and even live bands. The people at BRIX definitely know how to party, once you are here you will be treated to the best alcoholic beverages that Singapore has to offer.
Location: Grand Hyatt, 10 Scotts Road
