The perfect path for an evening of unique culinary and nightlife experiences can be paved from the hidden gems of the Singapore social scene. From secret cocktail menus to sexy Middle Eastern hideouts, these spots provide an escape from the realities of everyday life, enabling you to lose track of time and place…. here are some of Singapore’s best-hidden drinking & dining spots from dusk to dawn.

From 6pm to 9pm – THE OTHER ROOM

Hidden behind an unmarked black curtain in the depths of Orchard Road, The Other Room takes after work drinks to a new intriguing level. A nod to the secret drinking establishments of bygone eras, The Other Room provides the perfect destination to begin the evening.

Indulge in some pre-dinner aperitifs from an experimental cocktail menu – each concoction pays tribute to a forgotten time and includes house-aged spirits for a truly unique drinking experience.

Those in the know can increase the number of stamps on their The Other Room Passport, and get one step closer to the Golden Key, which unlocks the secret menu of multi-sensory mixology creations. 

Address: Located at the Singapore Marriott Hotel, Tang Plaza. Behind a black curtain and doorbell | Opening Hours: 6pm – 3am (Mon to Thurs) & 6pm – 4am (Fri to Sun) | Website: | Facebook: The Other Room SG Instagram: @TheOtherRoomSg

From 9pm to Midnight – THE OTTOMANI

Having set the tone with some of Singapore’s most daring beverage concoctions at The Other Room, continue through to The Ottomani – an effortlessly cool yet opulent super club. Hidden behind an arched black and gold mosaic walkway in the back of a shophouse in Tanjong Pagar, The Ottomani brings a touch of the Middle East to Singapore. Entranced by fire, the space is adorned with hanging oil lanterns, providing an intimate glow along with eclectic handpicked antiques, luxurious Turkish rugs, and plush velvet sofas. The absence of a bar is inconsequential as Signature and Classic cocktails are made tableside on a beverage trolley.

The cocktail programme and wine list have been painstakingly selected by a great team of bartenders and feature a mix of exclusive regional wines as well as old & new world bottles chosen for their flavour profiles. New Middle Eastern cuisine is cooked by Chef Nic Phillip on a charcoal grill and wood-fired earth pit, providing a depth of flavour and variety. Genuine personal service and a music repertoire transporting you to another time and place combine to make The Ottomani a unique and immersive dining experience.

Address: 48 Peck Seah Street Singapore 079317 | Opening Hours: 6.30pm – 11pm (Mon – Sat). Closed on Sundays | Website: Ottomani Instagram: @TheOttomani

From Midnight to 6am – LULU’S LOUNGE

Continue to dance the night away at Lulu’s Lounge – a late night lounge, which is reminiscent of the back alley clubs of 1960’s New York. Sophisticated and charming, with just the right level of grime, Lulu’s is an underground hideout, boasting an abundant entertainment schedule featuring everything from sultry jazz music to burlesque performers and sets from international DJs.

Bright graffiti and neon signs punctuate the bare-bricked walls, and subtle tweaks to the theme of the lighting and musical genres throughout the evening create an evolving journey, which stretches into the early hours of the morning. Playful twists on classic cocktails include the ‘Whiskey Pucker Up,’ which is stamped with the same lipstick motif stained on the venue’s napkins. Lulu’s patio provides a more relaxed experience; dimly lit, it is the perfect alfresco venue. 

Address: 7 Raffles Boulevard Pan Pacific Hotel Singapore 039595 | Opening Hours: 7pm – 4am (Wed) & 9pm – 6am (Fri & Sat) | Website: Lulu’s Singapore | Facebook: Lu Lu’s Lounge
