Chinatown

The main bar areas in Chinatown are Far East Square, Club Street, Duxton Hill and Tras Street and, as is the trend, they're only a short walk from each other and from the shops, boutiques and galleries of Chinatown itself. Heaven for foodies and a haven for tourists, The Far East Organization won awards for the architectural aesthetics of Far East Square. Restaurants, bars and caf�'s can be found throughout the square, which is a completely pedestrianized area that also houses the Fuk Tak Chi Museum and various handicraft stalls. Here you will find the famous Carnegies, a bar popular with ex-pats and Bisous Bar, clubhouse for ex-pat rugby team the Bedok Kings. Where food is concerned you can sample the delicious flavours of Africa at Mama Africa, as well as cuisine from France, Italy, Israel, Vietnam, Japan and of course the local flavours of Singapore. Far East Square is also home to Boom Boom Room, Singapore's only cross-dressing cabaret bar. Fancy some karaoke? Then mosey on up to Duxton hill where you'll be spoilt for choice or walk round the corner to Tras Street where you'll find fine dining and "alternative" entertainment at the Why Not? Bar. Just across the road from Far East Square is Club Street, a pretty hill dotted with gorgeous shophouses transformed into trendy bars, restaurants and galleries. A popular area for yuppies and business execs who have a few extra dollars to spend.
