Known as Singapore's premier "rock and roll blues bar," the Crazy Elephant lives up to its name with pulsating rock music intertwined with smooth, groovy blues. One sure thing you will notice when you step into this bar is its sheer size; big, spacious and perfect in case a certain creature decides to drop in. For drinks, you cannot go wrong with the house specialty, Singapore Sling. Live band performances nightly (except Mondays) ensures that the crowd has a good time. Jam sessions every Sunday.
Located in a 1910 shophouse, this bar offers more than 35 varieties of local and imported beers. Cosy and relaxing, it is a hit with both locals and expatriates. Listen to soothing classic rock from the 1960s and 1970s, while having a go at a game of darts or pool. The nine-inch hot dogs are well worth a try and you even get to choose the toppings. Selections range from chopped onions to French or American mustard and pickled relish. And while you are here, it will be insane not to try the beers available. The beers are chilled in glass tanks and served, well, ice-cold!
Molly Malone's Irish Pub is a charming Irish pub, the first to open in Singapore. The dark green exterior makes it hard to miss. Occasionally, live music is performed when guest bands from Ireland drop in for a visit. Ever since this pub opened in 1995, business has been booming. New visitors and regulars alike keep coming through the door for their regular pints of Guinness and Kilkenny. Food-wise, try the Buttered Day Fillet with French Fries, and the traditional Fish and Chips.
Famous for originating the Singapore Sling, The Long Bar is known to both tourists and locals alike as the place to go for this unique concoction. Like the name suggests, the interior is indeed long.

The dress code is smart formal. All cocktails sold here are generally of a good standard, but most people still go for the Singapore Sling.

Part of a growing trend towards bespoke cocktails, Bar Stories at Haji Lane is trendy yet intimate. The lack of a menu at this joint is easily its most remarkable feature, and each drink is tailor-made to suit your individual taste. Whether you have a clear idea in mind or just a vague feeling, simply tell the bartender what you fancy and a few shakes, splashes and dashes later you have before you a drink that is uniquely yours.
