Best Romantic Bars Singapore

Whether you’re meeting your match from a dating app IRL for the first time or celebrating a major anniversary with your SO, picking the right bar for drinks can make or break a date. Some folks are all about hidden speakeasies, others prefer aesthetic bars, then there are those whose main concern is that the pub grub is legit. Whichever vibe you’re after, this list of romantic bars in Singapore has you sorted.

1. Dragonfly

Buzzing over from its home ground of Hong Kong, Dragonfly is now fluttering its wings in Singapore – at Vibe Hotel to be exact. Situated on the outskirts of Orchard Road, the swanky enclave is a must-go if you’re into whimsical bars that will take your mind off your stresses.

Step inside and be transported to another world reminiscent of Avatar’s Pandora. Think blue hues, wing-patterned lamps and a huge dragonfly made out of stained-glass. The cocktails are equally impressive – vodka lovers should try the High Mountain, a concoction of Oolong vodka, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, vermouth and honey. Meanwhile, rum aficionados can toast with Murphy’s Law, mixed with sweet corn ice cream and mala oil – a combination that has to be tasted to be believed.

Beyond the drinks and aesthetics, the bar also serves as a perfect date spot if you love live music, with performances and DJ sets lined up in the coming months.

Address: 24 Mount Elizabeth, #01-05, Singapore 228518
