Before the Covid-19 pandemic, Singapore’s vibrant nightlife scene was one experience enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. Some of the best spots in town include (in this writer’s humble opinion), Zouk, Yang Club Singapore, Marquee and Ce La Vi at Marina Bay Sands, the former The Butter Factory and some of the rooftop bars along the city’s CBD, Boat Quay and Ann Siang Hill.
For some locals, turning 18 and hitting some of these spots was a rite of passage. While some eventually got tired of partying quickly, others never quite weaned off the heady and freeing experience of partying till the wee hours with good music and strangers they’d probably never meet again.
In a bid to curb the pandemic, nightspots, bars, and so on were told to shut with effect from March 26 2020.
