Some days you go for the booze, and some days it’s all about the beats. We’ve cu­rated these hotspots ac­cord­ing to genre.

T E L O K AY E R ARTS CLUB PLAYS: ECLEC­TIC This Arts Club is one for CBD pro­fes­sion­als who ap­pre­ci­ate stray­ing from the norm. Mu­sic di­rec­tor and co-founder DJ Has de­scribes the tunes as “eclec­tic and worldly”. Trans­la­tion: soulful, funky and jazzy. The bar/restau­rant has a clean modern vibe, and on Fri­days after din­ner, Has turns the space into a mu­sic den.

Mu­sic ses­sion “Ke­lab Malam” brings in in­ter­na­tional DJs and fea­tures lo­cal ones such as Ash, one of the pi­o­neers of Sin­ga­pore’s un­der­ground mu­sic scene and co-founder of drum and bass col­lec­tive Guerilla. On the arts front right now is a group show by artists Me­gan Miao, Susie Wong and Zulkhairi Zulk­i­flee, which will be fol­lowed by mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary artist Dawn Ng’s show­case in Jan­uary.

Drinks like The Spiced Cup (a mix of Hen­drick’s Gin, fresh lime juice and Tabasco) are in­spired by the neigh­bour­hood’s his­tory. The Arts Club, for artists, cre­atives and mu­sic lovers. 2 McCal­lum Street

Bar­tend­ing stal­wart Din Has­san’s cock­tails are made fresh, with lo­cal in­gre­di­ents.
