For music closer to home:

Tipsy Penguin

Where: 300 Tampines Avenue 5

Singapore’s very first co-op restaurant – where many chefs come together to create dishes of their expertise – serves from a variety of cuisines, and has live bands Monday through Saturday. Perfect for hanging out with friends for a warm meal without actually leaving the neighborhood… if you live in Tampines.

For nights in town:

LuLu’s Lounge 

Where: Pan Pacific Hotel (Marina)

It’s about to get warm all up in this jazz, as Duke Silver says it. Skip the impossibly loud and obnoxious clubs for a quieter night out at Lulu’s, where everything – including its music – takes you back to a ‘60s New York back alley.

For free live sets:

Esplanade — Theatres on the Bay

Where: 1 Esplanade Drive

This performing arts venue has everything you’d need for a night out – dining options, quirky/niche shops, a stunning rooftop, best views of the Singapore river, and best of all, free music shows from local/indie artists happening daily.

For flexin’ your musical muscles: 

Panic At The Quiz Night

Where: White Label Records

Get quizzed on everything from indie pop to black metal. Hosted once every two months, this trivia night includes house rules of having at least one drink in your hands and leaving your phones off.


[BONUS] For the homebody:

Stay home on a Friday night

Where: Your house

Okay, this is a cop-out for the Gojek team, but there’s really nothing we’d recommend more than spending a little me-time at home when the rest of the world goes by. Best of all: you get to pick your music. Your mini-guide to a DIY staycation at home, as follows:

  • Put on your fave Spotify playlist. We like this for a healthy sing-along, and this on your commute home.
  • Find the lyrics to your favorite songs, and call your friends over for a karaoke sesh. 
  • Pair with some hot tea – or your (non)alcoholic poison of choice. Our fave: ETTE TEA COMPANY’s Tigress Mint, which is a soothing blend of peppermint, verbena, and lemon peel. 
  • Order in from your favorite restaurant and dig in.
  • Add a candle for mood lighting, if needed. IKEA’s scented ones start from just $2.90!
