Hip Hop clubs

Postby Sissy » Sun, 03 Mar 2013 9:23 pm

Hi there,

I'm a 31/F/European and looking for a good club for Hip Hop music. So far, I haven't found anything good. Seems like Singapore is more about House and Electro.

Who can give me an advice?

Thanx!

Yep, good call!

I hadn't imagined that there would be ANY market for hip-hop in SG. But there are two clubs at Clarke Quay alone!? I stand very much corrected.

Well...I have been to both clubs and it's definately NOT Hip Hop or R'n'B. It's rather playing charts...and some songs happen to be a little bit like Hip Hop.

I know we are not in NY but even in my country they play more Hip Hop.
It really seems like Singi isn't da place for it at all..which is a bit frustrating if you really like that kind of music.

Anyhow..it is what it is.

Which clubs play charts or more hip hop than the others? Rebel and Arena?

I can't do house for too long.

In all honesty I'm not quite sure what passes as true HipHop these days, rock/metal is more what I'm on the lookout for...but I'm aware of a few nights at the Butter Factory that advertise themselves as being HipHop. Check out http://www.thebutterfactory.com/ quite a nice venue, I especially like the smaller room.

If you're looking for rock music, there are two names I can think of. JJs and Prince of Wales. I have not been there yet but I will soon :wink: Just found out about them from friends and fellow posters not long ago so I'm itching to check them out.

There is a band called The Heritage who plays at JJs regularly. I hear that they cover awesome rock songs from the good old days.

Sorry to hijack this thread. Thought I may throw in some pub names for chuckd to consider checking out. In fact, I'm supposed to update this in the other rock pubs thread.
