Saturday Night at a Rooftop Bar in Singapore

You've been travelling for weeks, you are exhausted and arguing. It's a two day stopover and Saturday night in Singapore. Will you ever be in this city again; on a Saturday night, who really knows.. So what's to be done? Just for once I don't bother checking google maps or any of the guides. I want to go over to old Chinatown where exploring the city early one morning, I saw all these restaurants and bars packed in cheek to jowl. Quiet in the morning sure, but it looked fascinating and at night; now that's got to be be the place to be. We pull ourselves together, exit the Intercontinental from it's labyrinth of corridors and grab a cab over to old Chinatown. And the whole place is going off!

Ann Siang Hill and Club Street are packed with people; there are tables and chairs set out on the road, people are spilling from doorways, there's a pleasant vibe, a party atmosphere and no end of venues to explore. The place feels great. We end up deciding on a rooftop bar, old building no lift, six flights of stairs maybe more.. but we have been assured its worth the work. When we make it to the top we find a lovely terrace bar, couches, a view of the other bar across the way, beautiful coloured lights, new Singapore towering in the background. I'm outdoors in the humidity and loving it! It's like being out at a summer party in Brisbane back in college days, if only there had been bars like this - if only they had kept Brisbane's colonial heart.. I like this Singapore place, I like this bar, and we like the people; it turns into a great night out in Singapore after all, and truly one to remember.

We ended up at Screening Room Roof Top Bar - great location, friendly, our snacks were good though we did find the establishment a little pricey. No doubt on par with similar establishments with a view.
