Steak and Wine

Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse

Most steakhouses you find around town are American style, but Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse goes the Italian route. The restaurant is currently undergoing a facelift that includes plenty of exposed brick and beams to match their overall rustic theme. However, the menu will stay the same with their signature Wagyu steaks seared to produce a crunchy char on the outside and finished over a wood fire. Start with a few martinis, then try the massive Fiorentina steak with your choice of side sauces and bottles of Italian wine.

Gordon Grill

Located in the Goodwood Hotel, Gordon Grill has been around for over 50 years, so it should come as no surprise that you’ll find more of an old fashioned vibe here with white tablecloths, artfully folded napkins and even a meat trolley service where chefs carve up roasts right your table. The prices here are pretty reasonable considering the quality of the meats and seafood is spot-on and the preparation and cooking is executed expertly. If you’ve got a big group of guys looking for a carnivorous feast, Gordon Grill is a great option.

L'Entrecôte at Duxton

Simplicity is the key at L'Entrecôte, a Parisian bistro style spot where the signature dish is entrecôte steak cooked to your preferred temperature and served with free-flow crispy golden fries, a fresh green salad, and lashings of their secret buttery sauce. They also have enticing appetizers like Homemade Foie Gras Terrine and Oven Baked Bone Marrow, as well as a carefully curated wine list with plenty of bottles of French vino, some of which come from their own wineries.

Boat Quay Bar Hopping

Boat Quay is one of our go-to spots in Singapore for bar hopping because you’re pretty much spoiled for choice when it comes to pubs, patios and clubs here. We suggest starting the evening at BQ Bar for a few beers in a buzzy atmosphere, and then hitting up the drinking dens along the strip, eventually making your way to Skinny’s to end the evening with some karaoke and games of pool and foosball.

Whiskey & Cigar Bars

Singapore has a slew of whisky and cigar bars where you can sip on a few drams and sample fine smokes in celebration of a special event or just for an easygoing evening with the boys. The following are some of our favourites:

Quaich Bar

The Connoisseur Divan

The Olde Cuban

CÉ LA VI

 

Poker Nights at Home

Chicken Up

For those nights when you’re having mates over and want to put out an easy-going spread, you can’t go wrong with Chicken Up, a contemporary Korean spot that specialises in chicken wings. Here they marinate the chicken for 12 hours in their special blend of spices, then deep fry it to crispy perfection. Go for the Spicy Yangnyum wings, the Gangjang wings in an umami soya blend or their signature Crispy Up half chicken. Wash it all down with some Watermelon Soju.

Smoke & Mirrors

Located in the National Gallery, this chic spot offers a great selection of whiskies and wines, comfort food bites like Popcorn Chicken with dried chili and Salted Egg Yolk Chicken Wings, and stunning views of Marina Bay and the Padang.

/public/file/article/Aura.jpg 

Aura

For sunset drinks it’s pretty hard to beat Aura, also located in the National Gallery. The space is massive at over 9,000 square feet, but the Sky Lounge rooftop bar is the main draw for us with its stellar views over Marina Bay. Aura does special packages for private events from cocktail parties on the balcony to full-on sit down dinners. They can also customise something bespoke for a birthday party, bachelor’s party or corporate shindig.

Ice Cold Beer

When it’s easy-going vibes you’re after, Ice Cold Bar is a long-time favourite housed in a Peranakan shophouse in the Emerald Hill enclave. You won’t find dress codes or designer drinks here, just 60 different beers to choose from in custom-made vats of ice and pub grub like hot dogs, burgers and wings. For a private gathering, look into booking space in the Stellar Bar upstairs where you can play a few rounds of pool and catch matches on the flat-screen TVs.
