Guys weekend in SIN -- need some suggestions

Planning a guys weekend in Singapore mostly for food. I have been there many times but never with guys only. Usually solo for one night at a time (long time ago) and most recently with family.

So, would like recommendations on the nightlife? Places to people watch and just have a good time.

We are not nightclub people - prefer a bar or an outside venue just to chit chat and snack on food.

We will be there from Fri-Mon in March.

Appreciate all the help.

Staying in or near Chinatown might be to your liking? Maxwell food center close by. Plenty of people watching to be had, large amount of food options and i saw a number of bars nearby as well.

28 HongKong Street should fit your bill. It's a well-regarded bar near Chinatown with great drinks and a good food selection and vibe. They might take reservations; I don't recall, but try to get one if they do.

D. Bespoke is a great bar as well. It's Japanese-inspired, somewhat formal, quiet, and expensive. Very different scene than 28 HongKong Street, but I highly recommend both.

None of these place have outside seating.

I haven't been to Tippling Club, but that might be another option.
You can also wander around on Amoy and Telok Ayer Streets. Jigger & Pony is a good bar. I just saw that Employees Only is there too. Their NYC location (the original) makes great drinks.

Have fun!

As this weekend gets closer, I might more questions popping up...here is one:

Can we take a bottle to drink at a hawkers center while we eat? Is it allowed?

Not after 1030pm. You cannot drink in public after 1030pm.

If the bottle refers to beer, most hawkers drink stalls will sell beer, but not wine though.

Read below link for the quick download of the regulations re drinking in public. What you can or cannot do under the new alcohol law, Singapore News & Top Stories - The Straits Times

Was at atlas yesterday night and one day every week prior. Its a good place to hangout with the best champagne and gin list in Singapore. Maybe before that you could visit me at JAAN too!
