Best Romantic Bars Singapore

So you’re all dressed up and you’ve finished a satisfying Valentine’s day feast planned out a month ago…but now what? The night’s young. Here’s a go-to guide of recommended bars in Singapore and lesser-known hideouts that serve unique cocktails with sakura, lobster and popsicles so that you and bae can enjoy more one-on-one time together.

For hipster baes who love underground bars

1. Operation Dagger


Operation Dagger is a hipster’s haven. Its covert operation is so low-key, you’d walk right past it if you didn’t know any better, since they don’t have door signs. Plus, we hear they make a mean salted egg cocktail.

7 Ann Siang Hill, Singapore 069791
6438 4057
Tue-Sat 6pm-12am. Closed on Mon & Sun.

2. The Library


This elusive bar requires a password for entry, which changes every week. You’ll need to retrieve the code from their Facebook page, or from the restaurant next door, The Study. Once you’re past the faux shop front, you can indulge in their creative cocktails in a quaint, steampunk-esque lounge.

47-49 Keong Saik Road, Singapore 089151
6221 8338
Mon-Sat 6pm-1am. Closed on Sun.

3. The Secret Mermaid


Behind the door of what looks like an industrial storage room is The Secret Mermaid—a tasting room focused on American craft spirits. Displayed on shelf walls, the bottles can be reached via a rolling library ladder.

10 Collyer Quay, B1-08 Ocean Financial Centre, Singapore 049315
Mon-Fri 5pm-11pm. Closed Sat-Sun.

For baes who can never decide what to order—leave it to the bartender

4. Bar Stories


Look forward to your bartender performing some party tricks in this no-menu bar tucked away on the 2nd level of a Haji Lane shophouse. Here’s how it works: tell the mixologists what you’re craving, or your alcoholic preference for the ultimate cocktail concoction. For a more personalised experience, head down during off-peak hours.

9. The Other Room


This secret gem’s the definition of a speakeasy bar. Unlisted in the hotel directory, it’s in that other room on the Marriott’s ground level. Describing themselves as a “drinking house for the discerning”, its charming vibe is old-fashioned and laid-back. And when the man behind the cocktail is referred to as ‘the Wizard’, you know you’re in for a treat.
