Jazz bars in Singapore

Post by nanana » Mon, 18 Jan 2016 11:30 pm

Ok guys, just wonder if any of you have been to any jazz bars recently? (Apart from blu Jazz cafe). Any reviews?

I'm trying to find a cool bar with some eargasm music to go to. Read some recommendations online, only to find out that some of the best jazz bars already closed down!

Any suggestion will be great. Thanks.

Elephant bar like proctor & gamble said there. But time to time prince of Wales in little India is a good place to go, lots of interesting backpacker crowd too, used to be my haunt for many a time.
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

Walked past some bar called The South Bridge Hotel, on South Bridge Road last night.

210 South Bridge Rd, Singapore 058759

It claims to be a Jazz bar.

Are the other bars mentioned Jazz bars?

Or is my stereotypical thoughts of Jazz bars , i.e. some fella on a Saxophone incorrect

This young lady, much like you, has swallowed some age-defying pills. Actual age is a myth. Looks can be deceiving. Hahahaha

ok. an update on the jazz bar.
I checked out the singjazzclub at the Sultan Hotel last night. I love the band. Atmosphere was great. Drinks selection are so-so. But I was not there for the drinks anyway. I thought it was free seating event, as I was thinking to find a quiet corner to enjoy the show. But only to find out that I was allocated to sit at the table with a group of family. It was awkward initially but most of them were there for the music anyway, so they kinda didn't mind my presence.

A piece of advice to those who are keen to visit this place, it may be better to get your ticket from the website. Then you will be reserved a seat. I saw some of them bought the ticket at the door and they had to stand at the back of the room for the show.

Overall, I enjoyed the music very much, although I would prefer the sound of a grand piano than keyboard. Will definitely visit this place again. Thank you guys for your recommendation!

We were there as well last night! Jeremy was fantastic! I have to agree with your analysis of the layout but I'd say that the space is expensive to rent and the management are doing their damndest to get as many people in as they can.
