Civic District Bars Singapore

Known as the historic birthplace of Singapore, the Civic District is an impressive mix of hubs and landmark colonial buildings on the banks of the northern end of the Singapore River. What were once British offices, banks, hotels and clubs have been restored and converted into shops, modern offices, restaurants and bars.

It’s at night that Singapore really comes alive, and you can appreciate the impressive electric light displays on buildings and see the locals let their hair out in the huge array of pubs and clubs. The Civic District is home to many of the best bars in Singapore and you’d regret not spending at least one night visiting these.
