If only the coldest pints and the stiffest drinks with the lowest prices during happy hour will do, then you’ve landed on the right article. 


Let’s be honest, regardless of venue, all alcoholic beverages in Singapore are expensive. This is mainly due to Singapore’s
alcohol tax (S$88 per litre for hard liquors and wines, S$60 per litre for beers and ciders) that is charged on top of the 7% Goods and Services Tax; which is why if you’re planning a night out, it is pertinent to conduct research for a convenient place that caters to groups, and serves good drinks at affordable prices — or risk running up a high tab.

Take it from someone who has spent years searching for the best happy hour deals, these are the ones that are conveniently located and give you the best bang for your buck. Read on to find out where these 9 bars and restaurants are and get ready to be amazed at how much you’ve been overpaying for your drink.


Updated as of 5 October 2022. Best happy hour drink promotions are subject to change without prior notice. The legal age to buy and consume alcohol in Singapore is 18 years old. Please drink responsibly.

It is always a happy hour at Al Capone’s. Depending on the outlet, prices for a pint of Guinness draft beer start from just S$8.80 nett, Heineken beer tower from S$39 nett and hard liquor bottles from S$85 nett onwards. To top it all off, these prices are inclusive of all prevailing taxes!

3. Stickies

Happy hour time slots: 2pm onwards

Happy hour at Stickies works a little differently, in the sense that the prices here go by the time of day. The earlier you start, the cheaper certain drinks are. A half pint of beer or a glass of housepour liquor with your choice of mixer goes for S$2++ at 2pm, and prices increase a dollar every hour. Wine and soju shots begin from S$3++ and S$1++ respectively.

For instance, prices increase to S$3++ when the clock strikes 3pm, S$4++ when it is 4pm, and so on. But if that’s not your elixir of choice, there are other drink promotions that include S$8.50++ for a pint of Guinness, S$30 for a 3-litre beer tower, a party platter of 20 shots for S$30 and more.

What's stranger than fiction is the fact that you haven't tried their Even Stranger Things promotional food and drinks starting from as low as S$32. In honour of one of the best minor characters in Stranger Things (R.I.P Barb 🙏🏻), get the Barb Slug Bucket to fill your bellies for only S$32 on weekdays or S$38 on weekends.

After that, you and your mates can quench your thirst with the Upside Down Tower which costs S$68 on weekdays and $74 on weekends. It might seem a little pricey at first, but all for the spooky season right?

We interrupt your October month of drinking with... even more draft beer towers featuring Tiger, Tiger Crystal, Heineken, and Guinness beers starting from S$50 (U.P. S$65).


Source: Stickies

But if you're not in the mood for a beer tower, Stickies also has a great beer bundle promo of 3 Guinness Draft beers for S$21++; that makes each pint only S$7! (For context: The average price of a pint of beer starts from S$10). Best of all, it's available daily at their Aljunied, Sungei Kadut and Jurong outlets.

Lastly, if beer's not your cup of tea, indulge in Stickies' Jameson Whiskey Special prom where you can buy the 2nd bottle at 50% off! Prices per bottle start from S$47.50 on weekdays and S$62.50 on weekends, while stocks last. Only available at the Aljunied, Sungei Kadut, and Jurong outlets.

Prices are before GST and service charge.

Tel: +65 6238 8348
Happy hour time slots: Sunday to Thursday (2pm to 8pm) | Friday & Saturday (2pm to 6pm) & (8pm till late)

When your feet get tired from all that retail therapy and you want something more than a fancy overpriced latte, head over to Oriole. Located near 313 Somerset, happy hour here starts at 2pm daily and consists of special prices attached with their draft beers -- half pints from S$8++ and full pints from S$13++.

Their wines are priced from S$9++ and 1-for-1 promotions on housepours like Red Sangria for S$16++, Jing-A for S$18++, and Rosé also for S$18++.



5. No.5 Emerald Hill Cocktail Bar

Address: 5 Emerald Hill Road, Singapore 229289
Tel: +65 6732 0818
Happy hour time slots: 12pm to 8pm daily

Yes, this is the bar at Peranakan Place that serves you free groundnuts and allows you to throw its shells on the floor without being fined (or judged)! No.5 Emerald Hill Cocktail Bar may be best known for their 1-for-1 martinis at S$28++, and 3 for S$33. There are also other drinks like house pour liquor with a mixer of your choice and half a pint of draft beer for S$8++ on their happy hour menu. 

Go for their drinks, but stay for the delectable bar bites. Be sure to give their shrimp-paste marinated chicken wings a try during your visit. Crispy, umami-packed and served piping hot, I dare say that they are, perhaps, one of the best along Orchard Road. 

6. Chupitos
