Drinking In Singapore’s CBD? Here’s Where to Go Each Day of the Work Week

Drop your briefcases and grab a glass! It’s time to put your work woes behind and escape to the safe haven that is drinks, no matter how far along the week you’re stuck at. From an evening of flavoursome oysters and whiskies on Monday to a sophisticated night of signature cocktails and live music on Friday, we’ve got your sanity well covered.

Humpback Oyster Mondayshumpback

Shucks, is it Monday again? Chase those blues away with all-day Happy Hour oysters at Humpback, one of few seafood restaurants that just keeps us coming back. At just $2 to $3 a pop, expect super-fresh succulent oysters like the fleshy Shigoku Fat Bastard, the curvaceous Totten Inlet, and the petite Kumamoto – all sourced from the Washington coast and beyond. Of course, don’t eat them alone. Elevate those briny flavours with speciality white spirit-based cocktails (Lobster Tail Bloody Mary, anyone?) and a varied collection of wines, whiskies, beers, and ciders.


Humpback is located at 18-20 Bukit Pasoh Rd, Singapore 089834, p. +65 9772 9896. Open Mondays till 12am.

Alfresco Tuesdays at The Black Swan

If you need a break to brave through a rough week ahead, look no further than The Black Swan’s Alfresco Tuesday for $9 drinks, $2 oysters, and darn soulful tunes by resident three-piece band Fuze Collective. Set under the stars in the restaurant’s lush garden patio, binge on rose coloured glass of life, draught beers, and house pours, as well as $12 signature cocktails like the Whisky Business and Bloody Your Own Mary. In fact, check out the overhauled menu by Chef Daniel Sia too, seeing yummy dishes like the Smoked Eel Pâté and Caviar served with housemade crackers.


The Black Swan is located at 19 Cecil St, Singapore 049704, p. +65 6438 3757. Open Tuesdays till 12am.

Cocktail Wednesdays at Oxwell & Co.

On hump day, make your way down to British gastropub Oxwell & Co. for $10++ drinks from 6pm till 8pm! Everything on tap is going out, from the Gin & Chronic and The Mule to the Pina Colada (roasted marshmallow!), Proper Job IPA, Cooper’s Pale Ale, Sapporo Lager, and Thundering Molly Cider. Seeing as it’s a Wednesday, ladies can also skip the bubblies for some special ladies cocktails – namely the tequila-loaded Mexicana Spritz and chocolatey Scarlet Lady – at only $10++ all night. How about some Westholme Beef Wagyu Steak Frites and Stick Date Pudding to go with those tipples?

FRIYAY at Cook & Brew

There’s nothing like a sky-high view (33 stories high, to be precise) of the city to feel like you’ve made it. Rein in the weekend with an irresistible array of drink promotions at the contemporary gastrobar Cook & Brew, all night long till 1am. Start off the evening with some house pour wines and beers at $10 nett while lounging on lavish leather arm chairs. Then, be entertained by a live band from 6pm – because no party is complete without music, right? – as you sip on an array of perfectly crafted signature cocktails (try the berry-licious Black Rosemary for a refreshing punch) from $12 nett, or bottle deals from $88++!
