6 Singapore Bars That Offer Free Drinks with Amex Platinum Credit Card

Here's how you can get free drinks in Singapore on a night out (without flirting with the bartender).

Since the cocktail renaissance of 2011, Singapore’s bars have become more vibrant and adventurous, each promising drinks that differ. But the pleasure of sampling these world-class tipples has a price.

Expect to pay S$12+ for a craft beer or S$20++ for a fancy cocktail by the bar’s star mixologist. Depending on how much you can drink, and how fussy you are about what you drink, a night out can cost anywhere from S$50 to S$300.

We’ve already shown you how the American Express Platinum Card can save you 50% off Singapore’s best restaurants.


This very same card also gets you complimentary cocktails, 1-for-1 deals, or 10% off your total bill at Singapore’s trendiest bars. Check them out below:

Ah Sam Cold Drink Stall
