Singapore Nightlife 2022: Best Nightclubs And Karaokes To Dance and Sing (Incl. Estimated Cost For Entire Night)

Last updated Apr 08, 2022

The last time we danced in a club till 4am and belted out mushy love songs at the karaoke was more than two years ago, and we can’t wait to be back.

On Monday (4 April 2022), authorities announced that all nightlife businesses, including clubs and karaoke establishments, will be allowed to fully reopen from 19 April 2022 onwards

This means we can finally party, sashay away on the podium (do they still have those?) at Zouk and wolf down maggi goreng at the 24/7 prata joint in our clubbing attire. 

If you’re looking forward to raving like us, here’s all you need to know about the best clubs and karaoke studios in Singapore, the estimated costs of partying (including a supervised ART test), and hacks on how you can save money on your night out. 

As this announcement is pretty recent, some establishments have yet to announce their opening and prices. Do keep a lookout on their respective websites and social media platforms for more information.

Supervised COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test (ART) test required before clubbing

Once nightlife resumes, partygoers will have to take a mandatory supervised Antigen Rapid Test (ART) before entering a nightclub or any establishment that offers dancing as an activity. 

The supervised ART test will cost between S$12 to S$15 and will only be valid for 24 hours.

The cheapest and most convenient way to do it is with Minimed, which provides remote ART test at only S$12 (test kit not included).

You will receive your digitally authenticated ART certificate within 30 minutes, and it will be accessible via Healthhub and TraceTogether. 

Clubbing Safe Management Measures

Before getting turnt up on 19 April, here are some safe management measures you (and your nine other friends) must adhere to/know: 

  • Maximum group size of 10 full-vaccinated people
  • Produce your supervised ART test result
  • Wear your masks while indoors
  • Keep at least a 1m safe distancing between masked off groups and individuals 
  • There is a 75% capacity limit for large events with more than 1,000 people
  • There is no capacity limit for events with less than 1,000 people

The estimated cost of clubbing in Singapore 2022

We’re estimating that the cost of a night out in Singapore is similar to pre-pandemic times, with the additional charge being only the mandatory ART test. 

Here’s the breakdown of how much you’ll probably spend for a night out at the club once it reopens: 

  • ART test (24 hours before): S$12
  • Pre-drinks (Assuming two bottles of soju per person): S$20~
  • Club cover charge: S$25 to S$30~ (or free for ladies on Wednesdays, based on our past experiences)
  • Supper (assuming you dine at more affordable spots like a prata joint): S$8~
  • Transport home: S$15~

Total: S$80 to S$100 per night out

Hacks for a cheaper night out at the club

Get your own alcohol

Buy cheap drinks at wholesale stores outside before heading in. OGs hide them in the bushes and come out every once in a while for a shot (if you know, you know). 

Avoid paying for cover charge

For the ladies, it’s free entry on Wednesday nights. If you’re lucky, there are also free drinks as well. If our memory serves us correctly, F.club used to offer a wristband to ladies on Wednesday nights (on top of free entry), which includes two free drinks every hour before 1am. 

Unfortunately, nothing is free for the guys. 

Wait for the first train or bus in the morning to get home 
Most people would simply take a Grab home, but private hire transport on a Friday night usually comes at an exorbitant cost after all your surges and midnight surcharges. If you’re on a budget, the best thing to do is wait for the first train or bus and pay less than S$2 to get home. 

Pay With Credit Cards
Nights out are expensive, so remember to use your credit card to maximise your spending. Sign up for these credits cards to earn miles and cashback on your spending!

Hacks For A Cheaper KTV sessions

Flash your student card for better deals
Before COVID-19 hit, KTV had student deals where sessions can go as low as S$5 per hour. 

However, we’re not sure if those are still available as they probably need to recoup losses after a two-year shutdown. 

Sing in the afternoon 
Weekday afternoons (aka happy hours) are the cheapest sessions to go for singing sesh. 

Squeeze as many friends (but not more than 9 others) into a room
If your KTV charges per room, make your bill cheaper by bringing in as many people as you can. For example, Teo Heng charges S$16 for an hour and you can bring 10 people, which means each person only pays S$1.60 per hour!

Conclusion

Be it clubbing or karaoke, remember to always mask up indoors and don’t forget to do an ART test 24 hours before entering the dance floor. 

Do adhere to the safe distancing measures and don’t be complacent as COVID-19 is still a real problem — if Shanghai can go into lockdown again, so can Singapore.
