New in Town

Postby newgirl » Sun, 06 Feb 2005 11:18 am

I've recently arrived from the UK and am a 31 year old female here on my own. I enjoy travel, good food, good wine and good conversation. I am just wondering where everyone hangs out at the weekends and if any formal events are organised? Everyone I work with is lovely, however, it would be nice to meet some new friends and have some fun.


welcome to Singapore!

Welcome to Singapore! :-)

Unlike what you may have heard, Singapore night life is not that bad and there are good places to hang out...

Since it seems you are really new, here are some popular areas for night life:

- Clarke Quay / Boat Quay (either clubs, bars or restaurants there, very nice altho a bit touristy)

-Orchard area (nice places around Somerset)

- Mohamed Sultan Road (mailny clubs there)

I am pretty sure I am forgetting something, so if anyboy wanna add...

By the way, last night I found out a place open until really late with live music (And it's not a sleazy one!!! :-) )

Unfortunately, wine is extremely pricey here... but you still can get some good one :-)

I'm European as well, if you care for a drink somewhere or a dinner, please drop me a line at

Hey newgirl,
I'm from the UK and have been here just over a month, still trying to find my way around and trying out the various bars and restaurants !! Have met a few people since being here and meet up for drinks during the week and weekends. Drop me an email if you fancy joining us, always good to meet fellow newbies ....
