A Guide To Singapore’s Live Music Scene
Singapore is a major tourist destination famous for its hawker centers, shopping on Orchard Road, and views from one its many skyscrapers. The Super Tree forest in Marina Bay has become a symbol for the city which attracted over 18 million tourists in 2018.
But there’s more to the ‘Lion City’ than incredible food, remarkably clean streets, and modern architectural marvels. A vibrant nightlife scene dominates Singapore after the sun goes down.
Live music is becoming increasingly popular across Asia and Singapore is at the forefront of major cities throughout the region. Below is a list of some of the hippest spots in the city to watch musicians ply their trade while enjoying a beer.
Located in Raffles Place, Crazy Elephant is one of the oldest spots in Singapore to catch a live music performance. For over 20 years, this legendary bar with graffitied walls and dim lighting is a favorite for rock n’ roll cover bands. A musical institution packed nightly with expats, locals, and tourists.
On the classy side, Astor Bar is specializes in jazz music with local resident pianist/singer Ron Sinclair serenading through the night. In the Orchard neighborhood, Astor Bar is a great spot to enjoy a refined cocktail and drift into the evening.
This alfresco café in Bugis is the perfect place to unwind after a long day of sightseeing. Relaxing tunes from local and international artists in the Himalayan inspired establishment soothe the body, mind, and soul. The music starts daily from 9 p.m. until late and some tempting specials on beer buckets make Going Om a neighborhood favorite.
Another Raffles Place staple, Hero’s is a modern day saloon on the banks of the Singapore River. A resident pop and rock band gets the wild-west themed bar honky-tonking every night. Hero’s also has a comedy night every Tuesday.
Timbre X @ The Substation
A stone’s throw from City Hall, Timbre X @ The Substation is an open-air venue featuring live local bands every night of the week. Packed on weekends, Timbre X has a large seating area and extensive food menu making it an ideal spot to grab a meal while kicking back to the reverberations of local musicians.
Wala Wala Café Bar
A top pick among locals, Wala Wala Café Bar is a real taste of life in Singapore. Singaporeans have been enjoying live music at the Holland Village spot for over 20 years. Out of the downtown core, Wala Wala is worth the trek and the raucous atmosphere makes it one of the best nights out in the city.
Boutique hotels in Singapore have made a name for themselves over the past decade and are often located in the thick of the nightlife.
One of these unique hotels in Singapore is Hotel G. Hotel G Singapore is located in Bugis and is walking distance to both Going Om and Timbre X @ The Substation. This Singapore lifestyle hotel is equipped with a vintage American style boxing gym, restaurant, wine bar, and 25 Degrees; a funky burger bar with sister locations in Los Angeles and Bangkok.
If taking in a live performance at one of Singapore’s entertainment haunts wasn’t in the itinerary, be sure to include it while visiting the city. A night out in the heart of the ‘Lion City’s’ burgeoning live music scene will surely not disappoint.
