Taylor Adam, Raffles

Place Every evening, a clandestine set of speakeasies comes alive in Singapore. Among them, the excitingly elusive bar Taylor Adam sits cleverly concealed behind the doors of a tailor’s outpost at Raffles Place in the city’s Financial District. To enter, make your way past the mannequins and play along when the staff confirms your ‘appointment’. Then, watch in awe as mirror-clad walls slide open to reveal an intimate watering hole! Try The Perfect Summer, a fruity concoction of gin, orange liqueur, and passion fruit, or indulge in the palatable pub grub, including chorizo quesadillas and Argentinianstyle pizzas called fugazzas. Sip back, relax, and don’t judge this undercover bar by its cover!

Science Centre, Jurong

The night is always young with a constellation of experiential activities on offer at this wonderful world of knowledge and technology. Enthral your little one at The Observatory with a private tour of a sky full of stars! (Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult). Weather permitting, it opens up rare vistas of the northern and southern hemispheres for celestial viewing. Peer through the in-house telescopes for optimum results. Next, book tickets at the Omni Theatre, Southeast Asia’s first 8K 3D Digital Dome, to encounter butterflies, mammoths, and more in a truly immersive experience! Dine at the Phoenix Indian Restaurant, for the perfect end to your starry, starry night., Guillemard Road

This luxe 24-hour spa, modelled on traditional Chinese therapies, caters to your holistic wellbeing with its bespoke offerings. Come as you are as no carry-ons are required (for specific treatments, an advance booking is advisable). Take a dip in the bubbling hot or cold pools for instant rejuvenation, or opt for the trademark Shiatsu-style deep tissue massage! Next, head for a meal at the lavish buffet, before calling it a day at the Relaxation Lounge, home to a personalised entertainment system. It’ll be a night to remember after a long day of sightseeing, or when the kids are asleep!

Southern Ridges, Mount Faber Park

As the sun sets, head to this extensive walkway that connects Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park, and the Labrador Nature Reserve. This overhanging oasis hosts a 10-kilometre-long treetop trail that takes nearly two hours to complete, but visitors may choose to explore only parts of it. We recommend Henderson Waves, the city’s highest pedestrian bridge, shaped like an undulating wave. Here, you can engage in birdwatching with the kids, jog along the Balau wood pathways, or unwind in the alcoves. Illuminated with LED lights, the bridge oˆ ers stunning views that’ll turn your long evening stroll into an enjoyable walk in the park!

Makansutra Gluttons Bay, near Esplanade Theatre

Picture this: an endless stretch of food stalls, serving up a mouth-watering melange of local dishes, set against the aesthetic backdrop of Marina Bay. Welcome to Makansutra Gluttons Bay, where the name says it all and the stalls serve it all! This al fresco hawker hub is a local hit as it houses the island’s most famous stalls. Gastronomes, head straight to Syifa’ Satay for smoky, barbequed prawns or try out chilli crab at Hong Kong Street Old Chun Kee for a taste of Cantonese cuisine. To beat the heat, wash it all down with a refreshing sugarcane juice at Gluttons Bar, where kids will love the chocolatey Milo Dinosaur. If you’re visiting after midnight, don’t miss Do Rae Mee’s Nonya Laksa, a slurpy noodle dish with a hearty coconut curry. As the Singaporeans say: ‘makan lah’ or ‘let’s eat’!

Ensure you’ve stocked up on cray• sh rolls, buˆ alo wings, and French fries from the nearby kiosk for this is not your average weekend binge-watch!

This rooftop outpost is a testament to the city’s bustling nightlife. Perched on the 39th floor of the iconic Andaz Singapore hotel, Mr Stork offers breathtaking 360-degree views of the landscape: a glittery mosaic of skyscrapers at night. Opus, a signature cocktail where bourbon, yuzu, shiso, and cucumber merge to form a tropical tipple, is a must-try. Teetotallers can sip on the zero-proof mocktails, like the Melati Spritz, a tantalising blend of cinnamon and artisanal, non-alcoholic bitters. Couples can book a teepee for the night for added privacy, where they can munch on small bites like Wagyu sliders while snatching a few leisurely moments away from the crowd. With stunning views and cocktails, every hour is indeed happy hour over here.
