Top 10 spots for students in Singapore

Top 10 spots for students in Singapore

CNNGo reader Zying Ng hops around town to find out how Singapore students procrastinate

By Zying Ng 10 March, 2011


Why study when you can be out having fun for cheap? Here are 10 best ways for students to put off that essay for one more day.

1. Wave House Sentosa



Looking to ride some waves? Wave House Sentosa is the place. Synthesizing skateboarding and wakeboarding styles, The FlowBarrel and Double FlowRider create sheet waves for surfers à la Dogtown and Z-boys.

The FlowBarrel promises some hardcore surfing at speeds of up to 50 kilometers per hour, while the Double FlowRider gets first-timers off to a good start.

Not simply a surfer’s paradise, Wave House Sentosa hosts regular beach parties with occasional live concerts. Past performers include LMFAO and Lil’ Jon, with Asian American electro hop quartet The Far East Movement set to get slizzard with partygoers on March 17.

36 Silosa Beach Walk. Find out more about prices at www.wavehousesentosa.com


2. Wala Wala, Holland Village



Popular among the college students -- both past and present -- Wala Wala at Holland Village is known for its daily live and acoustic music sets. Local favorites Jack and Rai built their fan base right here when they were getting started.

Away from the live music, the bar’s terrace is where you go for a chat with friends as acoustic musicians add background noise.

Incidentally, Wala Wala is one of the few places that serves fried jalapeños in Singapore and with a 300-minute happy hour that starts at 4 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m., it's easy to while the day away here.

Holland Village, 31 Lorong Mambong. For a full music schedule, check out www.imaginings.com.sg


3. Butter Factory, One Fullerton



No one does hip hop like Butter Factory. Splashed with bold colors and graffti cartoons, the club’s interior is a Pollock meets Banksy meets comic book space.

The factory is split into two rooms: Bump throbs with hip hop and is especially packed with college students on Wednesday nights downing shots, gyrating around the poles and dancing to the infectious beats of DJ Andrew T.

At Fash, spend an indie-rock fueled night with DJ Weelikeme. Butter also hosts various acts, with previous performers including Chingy and the Bangkok Invaders. Equally popular is the Wednesday Butter Cookies night where ladies enter free with free flow of alcohol from 10 p.m. till 1 a.m. You'll need ID.

Butterfactory is at One Fullerton.Visit www.thebutterfactory.com


4. Tom’s Palette, Beach Road



Ice cream parlors that infuse their icy, creamy creations with a local flavor have become a top student hangout.

Established by a husband-and-wife duo, Tom’s Palette offers over 90 flavors including the exotic and delicious Salted Egg and Sarsi; new flavors are launched every week and ice cream class is on every sun.- A new flavour is created every month, however everyday most of the flavours will be different.

Better yet, Mr. Chronos -- a partner at Tom’s Palette -- has extended a 10 percent discount for college students from SIM, NUS, NTU, NUS, Republic and Temasek Polytechnic.

From S$2.80-S$4.70 per scoop. #01-25 Shaw Leisure Gallery, 100 Beach Road. Visit www.tomspalette.com.sg


5. Spizza, Club Street: Bukit Timah: Jalan Kayu



College students love a slice of pie and even more so when a flash of a student ID grants a 15 percent discount.

Spizza has become a hot favorite with gourmet toppings such as proscuito, beef carpaccio and rucola salad topping the list of popular wood-fired pizzas.

With outlets found islandwide and reasonably priced pizzas from from S$17 to S$22, its no wonder the Club Street and Balmoral Plaza outlets have become particularly popular with the kids.

For full location details visit www.spizza.sg


6. Le Baroque, CHIJMES



It's well known that booze is way too expensive in Singapore. So where do 18 to 23 year olds go to dance and get beyond buzzed cheaply? Le Baroque.

Pay S$20 for all-you-can-drink Monday and Wednesday nights from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. and boogie the buzz away to the live band.

Occasionally, you might see a 60-year old breaking out the moves but aside from that curious occurence, Baroque is popular among students from SMU, NUS and particularly the exchange students.

B1-07 CHIJMES, 30 Victoria Street. Visit www.lebaroque.com.sg


7. Shots, Ann Siang Road



The shot in question is a shot of espresso, that is and the baristas here take coffee seriously.

The college set likes to come here to catch up with friends in the late afternoon, or just spend the day browsing the art magazines on the shelves as they savor their handcrafted java.

As dusk falls, sake replaces espresso; and do try the signature Café Coretto or Sakegatto.

From S$3.80-S$5.80 per shot. 8 Ann Siang Road. Visit www.shots.com.sg for more information


8. Players, Boat Quay



Players models itself as a bar for drinking games. Diversions here include beer pong, flip cup and local diversions involving dice and other paraphernalia.

The place offers up to three (beer) pong tables, and a tower of beer costs S$56, hence the place is packed out with college students on weekend nights.

29 Carpenter Street, Boat Quay. Visit www.players.com.sg for more details


9. St. Games, Handy Road



Wondering where you can play Rock Band with your friends? St. Games is the joint you’re looking for.

It's a video games café sporting the latest equipment and a menu that includes Rock Band and Rayman Rabbids.

St. G is crowded with tertiary students after 6 p.m. on weekdays, and on Fridays and Saturdays. Be sure to call and make a reservation.

#04-18 The Cathay, 2 Handy Road, tel +65 63972285


10. Haji Lane, Arab Street



Mention Haji Lane, and college students are sure to respond with words like shisha (or hookah), shopping, food and alcohol.

The eclectic hood is packed with shops selling vintage clothes, indie records and Egyptian food; add in an occasional cult street brand, and you've got a swatch of the unique fabric that makes up Haji Lane.

Check out Mono+, the Blog Shop and Wicked Laundry for shopping. Al-Tazzaq Egyptian Restaurant serves succulent shish kebabs. Come nightfall, breathe in the sweet smell of shisha wafting from the numerous streetfront cafés. Shisha costs between S$12 and S$15.

Near Kampong Glam, Arab Street. Al-Tazzaq restaurant is at 24 Haji Lane. Nearest MRT to Haji Lane is Bugis Station
