Ah, happy hour. There’s something about happy hour that puts a smile on our faces and a spring in our step (before happy hour starts, that is). Happy hour means deals on drinks, and who doesn’t love it when prices are slashed just so you can get a little sloshed? While happy hour also doesn’t mean anything in terms of actual time, we all know it as a magical time period (night or day) when all you need to think about is unwinding and whether or not you want a pint, a cocktail or a shot.
We’ve got the scoop on which watering holes and bars have the cheapest (and therefore happiest) happy hours in Singapore. Read up, and soon you’ll be drinking up!
Japanese izakaya bars are spots where you can socialise with your buddies, snack and drink on the cheap, after a day’s hard work and toil. Five Izakaya Bar lives up to its name, with Kronenbourg 1664 half pints, red and white wines, house pour beer, Asahi half pints, house sakes and yumeshu at only S$5 during their happy hour time slots, which are long and generous. No can say no to this five-dollar deal!
