Raise your glasses, JustSayees! Affordable drinking options (be they to unwind or get sloshed) is not entirely fictional!
With alcohol prices in Singapore going through the roof and the ban of alcohol in public areas past 10:30pm, you can expect to empty your pockets every time you decide to spend a night out drinking. But fear not, we’ve got your back!
These five bars will save your day (and night) by giving you prices that ensure it’s you leaving feeling lighter, not your wallet!
At Five Izakaya Bar, it’s happy hour all day. (Really, what’s the point of calling it happy hour if it’s all day?)
The drink deals at their four outlets are sure to leave you all smiles with all kinds of drinks and snacks, that will cost you just $5. These include house pour spirits (whisky, gin, tequila, rum and the likes), Asahi draughts, wines, shochus, and choya, at anytime that you want.
By the end of the night, you can’t help but think the reason for the simple pricing is to make it easier for you to drunkenly read the bill.

Prince of Wales
This hidden gem of a pub/backpacker hostel is sure to win your heart, even if you’re not a fan of its relaxed Australian ambience, and wonderful live music.
Lift your spirits with the insane drink deals at both their outlets, conveniently located in central areas like Little India and Boat Quay. You can prepare to leave the pub swaying at their weekly liquid buffets (on Wednesday at BQ, and Thursday at Little India) that will not cost you more than $30.
Whether you’re looking for a light drink after another day of work, or you just want to go with the classics, Prince Of Wales is a stellar choice thanks to its happy hour prices that’ll cost you only $8.50 for a good range of house pour spirits, $9 for most bottled beers and ciders, and $9.50 for a glass of wine.
Take note though, both outlets have happy hour and liquid buffet promotions at different times, which you can find on their Facebook pages!
