Are you looking for a club at which to drink and dance till dawn? We cover all the best clubs (and bar-club hybrids) in Singapore and how much you can expect to spend for entry.
Like most major cities in the world after dark, Singapore transforms into a vibrant entertainment hub. With COVID-19 restrictions finally loosening, everyone wants to go out and have a good time.
Singapore has a wide range of clubs, so you're likely to discover one that meets your requirements --- we’ll explore some of the best and the costs involved.
What's a cover charge?
A cover charge is an entry fee that is paid at nightclubs. In Singapore, cover charges usually apply only to clubs, and may include one to two drinks.
In light of COVID-19 measures, most cover charges have been replaced with table bookings and reservations (and ART tests) instead. So do check each establishment's rules and regulations prior to whiling the night away at the club.
Supervised COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test (ART) test before clubbing
Before entering the club to get lit, a supervised ART test is required for all clubgoers. An ART test kit will cost between S$12 to S$15, with validity lasting only 24 hours.
To avoid unnecessary crowds and skip ahead of the test queue, book an appointment with one of the Combined Test Centres (CTCs) or Quick Test Centres (QTCs). Alternatively, you may even do it remotely with these approved ART providers.
Note: Only a maximum capacity of 10 fully-vaccinated pax per group will be permitted into clubs each time. Should your group exceed that limit, separate into smaller groups and re-queue to enter.
