New Year's Eve in Singapore

So how do Singaporeans usher in the (Western) New Year? Do people mostly go to special (and overpriced) dinners at favorite restaurants?

I'll be in Singapore during the run up to and including New Year's Eve and need some advice on where to take my brother on the night of the 31st. I'd appreciate any recommendations on good restaurants that won't be too fancy (I'd prefer not to pack any suits), or alternatively, directions on how to look those places up.

Thoughts about where to do or watch the countdown (if that's done in Singapore) would be welcome as well.

I've never really gone to a special dinner for New Years eve....mostly its been private parties, sometimes clubbing.

All the six major countdown parties - mind you, its going to be crowded no matter where you go.

If clubbing away to the countdown is your cup of tea.

Some hotel deals if you need it.

Nope...you're thinking of zoukOut which is also held at Sentosa every year.

For the OP, China Jump is having a NYE buffet dinner at S$70 per head with a free flow of beer and house pours and no cover charge into the countdown party inside. No suits necessary

Yep, zoukOut is run by zouk. Except it's not on New Year's eve. The OP was asking about NYEs.

I believe Orchard Road itself will have full festitivities. Can't say what will happen as I haven't spent NYE in S'pore in yonks. Ask the hotel concierge who might be able to give you a fairer update on events.
