We all love a good night out at the end of a long work day and if you are looking for a spot to impress your colleagues or simply celebrate the end of yet another week, here are five of our favourite to check out.

Did you know you can watch mermaids perform while you drink in Singapore? Equipped with an Olympic-depth diving pool, you can get up close and personal with mermaids and synchronised swimmers at Fish Pool, a glamorous raw bar at The NCO Club. Enjoy the performances as you sip on champagne and enjoy a range of caviar, oyster and canapes.

Don’t let the simplicity of this bar drive you away. Ah Sam serves up some of the best handcrafted cocktails and local bar bites.
