Popular Spots

Bars and Clubs


      Most of Singapore's gay scene is concentrated in Chinatown, easily accessed by taxi or the Chinatown or Tanjong Pagar MRT stations. Everything within this area is a pleasant walking distance with lots to see, smell, taste, photograph and buy along the way.

    • Backstage Bar UTOPIA VISITED SEP 2013
        13A Trenggannu St (corner of Temple and Trenggannu St), Utopia Map, 6227-1712, email. A cozy, gay-owned bar, nicely decorated with posters from musicals, with a balcony for smokers or flirting with passersby. Same owner as Tantric. Fri and Sat are particularly jam-packed, so if you want a good seat, get here early. The staff are very hospitable and drinks are reasonably priced. Centrally located in the heart of Chinatown and close to dozens of gay venues. But Backstage is so happening that you might well make your love connection here. Double shots all night, every night. Premium liquor, like Bombay Sapphire, is served here. Open daily from 7pm until the wee hours.

        "Backstage Bar is my preferred weekend bar. Fri and Sat are busy. Use the purple line MRT and stop at Chinatown Station." -- riverrobles, Jun 12, 2013

    • DYMK (mixed) UTOPIA VISITED SEP 2013
        41 Neil Rd, Utopia Map, 6224-3965. The name stands for Does Your Mother Know. It was opened and is managed by the old crew from MOX. The bar is a double story, old style The crowd is mostly GLBT. The place is nice, cozy and perfect for unwinding after a hard day's work. It also hosts the local SM crowd every last Thu of the month.
        43 Neil Rd, Utopia Map, 6224-2865, email. Gay bar designed with touches of the iconic 60s Hollywood era up to today's Divas. Regular events, performances and guest DJs. The perfect place to unwind at happy hour prices after work. Try their mojito cocktail at a very reasonable price. Available for private events during the day. Open Mon 5pm-midnight, Tues-Thu 5pm-1am, Sat and public holidays 7pm-2am.

        Comments from Utopians:

        "Out Bar, next to DYMK, is a new gay bar on Neil Rd. Crowd is more young people and in groups. Busy on weekends and a good place to start the evening because it opens earlier than other gay bars. We did enjoyed this bar. The manager is funny and chatty and the staff are friendly, too." -- bbox , Jul 6, 2013

    • Taboo (mixed) UTOPIAN VERIFIED JUN 2013
        65/67 Neil Rd (opposite Tantric), Utopia Map, 6225-6256. Management and waiters are very friendly. Mixed crowd also has some lesbians. All races party here, so it's extra fun. Busiest on Fri and Sat nights. Reported not as gay as it used to be.

        Comments from Utopians:

        "For Taboo, you need to pay S$20 to get in (inclusive of drinks), unlike Tantric and Backstage wherein you do not have this door fee." -- riverrobles, Jun 12, 2013

    • Tantric Bar UTOPIA VISITED SEP 2013
        78 Neil Rd, Utopia Map, 6423-9232, email. Gay-owned and managed bar (same owner as Backstage Bar). Located in a beautiful heritage building with an open-air garden courtyard in front and a sophisticated lounge atmosphere inside done up in orange and red accents against velvety black. The music is a bit hotter here, definitely getting the crowd primed for later dance beats at the discos. Weekends groove to the deepest "deep house". The staff are cute as well as friendly and the courtyard has its own bar to keep the good times rolling outside as well as in. Double shots all night, every night. Premium liqueurs at very reasonable prices. Crowd is gay, but gay-friendly straights are also welcome.



    • Velvet Underground (mixed) UTOPIA VERIFIED AUG 2012
        719/21 Jiak Kim St (part of the Zouk disco complex), Utopia Map, 6738-2988. Best to go by taxi. Trendy hybrid of high and low design. Great music. More mature crowd than Zouk, flashy and upmarket, mixed ethnically, mixed sexually. Often Thu nights is very happening since it’s Crew Night (air crew can bring in a guest for free)! Admission varies, but you also get into adjoining Zouk for free. Best to come here with a friend.
    • Zouk (mixed) UTOPIA VERIFIED AUG 2012
        17 Jiak Kim St, Utopia Map, 6738-2988, email. Great music mix of progressive and techno most times. Often very organized about who's spinning on which dates. If you are interested in meeting gay folks Zouk it's best when there are guest DJs spinning, so check the schedule on their website and plan accordingly. Upscale, mixed crowd (be discreet). The fave dance club for many gays. Crowded on Fri and Sat. If you like Retro, Wed is the day (though not really that gay). Useful tip: when guest DJs perform, arrive between 7-9pm to get cheaper tickets (prices rise after 9pm).

        57 Neil Rd, Utopia Map, 6324-2802, email. Classy gay karaoke bar with nice crowd and friendly staff. Beverages are reasonably priced.

Free shot for birthday guys or gals with proof of date of birth. Utopia Member Discount
