What do you do when alcohol is expensive and work sucks?
When you still need to drink the dark abyss of your sorrows away but Happy Hour deals aren’t cheap enough for you to drink your fill?
I almost always regret my decision after witnessing the stark irreversible damage to my wallet after a night of drinking. So much so that I spend my next sober day grieving over the emptiness of my wallet/bank account. So as a sad intern, I’ve decided to scout for some Free-flow Alcohol Deals in Singapore for us (not including weekend champagne brunches).
Here’s one fellow booze-lover doing a favour for the others.
1. Wine BOS
Wine BOS is a wine supplier, wholesaler and consult at Stanford Court. They have an impressive selection of wine from Australia, France, New Zealand, Chile, California, South Africa and Germany. Free flow wine occurs everyday from 6 – 8pm for only $20+ but of course not all of their wines are available for free flow (the cheaper ones definitely). Ladies get to drink for free from 7pm-9pm every Wednesday as well.
They also have really cheap deals for meals – on Saturdays and Sundays, their steaks go at $9 while their self-proclaimed “BEST pork knuckle in town” is only $12 on Mondays. For such affordable prices, I’d be more open-minded to the quality of the food. Cheers to idiosyncratic thrifty indulgence amiright?
Expected Damage: $20+
Wine BOS: 180 Albert St 01-09 Village Hotel Albert Court, Singapore 189971 | Tel: 6909 3828 | Website
If you happen to be nearby, or are looking for ridiculously cheap reasons to drink, Idle offers Liquid Buffets from Monday to Saturday, 5pm to 11pm. This already beats many happy hour deals out there. Cheap booze 5 days a week just a stone’s throw away.
Expected Damage: Guys $30 nett | Ladies $25 nett
Idle: 50 Prinsep Street, #01-01, Singapore 188672 | Tel: 9384 4557 | Website
Address 2: 21 Media Circle #01-05, Singapore 138562
3. Tomo Izayaka
During Tomo Izayaka’s Happy Hour period, you can opt to pay $48++ per pax for 2 hours any day to have free flow of Gin, Tequila, Vodka, Sapporo, Sake, Beer and more. So if you wanna drink so much sake til your sashimi starts swimming inside of your stomach, go to Tomo Izakaya.
Expected Damage: $48++ for 2 hours

For the party people, don’t miss out on Highlander’s awesome alcohol promotion that costs only $30nett, regardless of your gender, but the ladies get to enjoy the free flow beers and housepour spirits for an hour more than the gentlemen.
This special Thursday promotion lasts from 9pm – 11pm for the gentlemen, 9pm – 12am for the ladies. With its prime venue in Clarke Quay, this is a perfect excuse to pre-party for the weekend.
Expected Damage: Guys $30 nett for 2 hours | Ladies $30 nett for 3 hours

5. Club Taboo
Located in the bustling Chinatown, Club Taboo is no stranger to the LGBT community and it is still one of the most popular alternative dance clubs since 1997.
Party scene aside, Taboo’s pretty famous for its affordable Liquid Buffet with free flow beers and housepour spirits, available from 10pm – 12am on Fridays and Saturdays. Just make sure to drink at least four glasses to make your money worthwhile.
Expected Damage: $30 for 2 hours

6. J Bar
Strictly for the ladies, J Bar at M Hotel offers free flow of Martini and selected Champagnes and Wines every Saturday from 8pm – 1am, for $35++ per lady. J Bar is a contemporary bar with a sleek theme but don’t worry you don’t have to be rich and stylish hotel guest to visit this haunt. Any non-hotel guest female can just park yourself there for 6 hours of free flow alcohol, tasty tapas and to soak up the great atmosphere. At least that’s what I’ll be there for.
Expected Damage: $35++ for ladies only

7. Bar Canary
Bar Canary offers a Girls’ Night Out promotion every Wednesday from 7 – 9pm. At $50++ for ladies and $100++ for men, you get free flow of Champagne, housepour Wines, Spirits and signature Cocktails. The interior is designed with the canary bird in mind hence the al fresco dining area, abundance of yellow and astroturf you can sink your weary feet in. Sounds like a pretty ideal midweek refueling!
Also looks great for a romantic date (y’know, if you wanna hit up that sexy colleague of yours). Might be a bit pricey but for the reputation, laid-back ambiance and unique cocktails, I’d say it’s worth a try.
Expected Damage: Guys $100++ | Ladies $50++
Bar Canary: Grand Park Orchard, 270 Orchard Road, Singapore 238857 | Tel: 66038855 | Website
8. Oasis Restaurant @ Grand Hyatt
BBQ Dinner at a poolside restaurant with an open bar while watching chefs prepare your meal at the grill? Sounds nice. Plus free flow of selected Beers, Wines, Margaritas and soft drinks daily? Sounds veeeeeery nice. Oasis’ All-You-Can-Eat BBQ buffet gives you exactly that. There will be a selection of fresh seafood, quality meat and delectable desserts. It costs $98.00++ per adult inclusive of free flow alcohol from Sunday to Wednesday.
Though it is definitely pricey and not a trauma you would exactly like to put your wallet through, check out our review and decide if you’d like to Treat Yo Self (holla Parks & Rec fans).

16. Secret Lab SG
Tucked away along the corner of Dickson Road, this spot has a storefront that’s largely unassuming. Passers-by can be forgiven for overlooking the black awnings. But behind this quaint front lies the best part, free-flow cocktails. You could quite literally drink ’til you drop.
Additionally, there are different promotions for each night of the week. On Mondays, you can drink away your blues at only $22 free-flow for ladies, and $28 for gentlemen.
Tuesdays are reserved for the guys because the prices are flipped. Go on, gather your bros for a well-deserved dudes’ drinks sesh.
Thursdays, are the time for a girls’ night out with the low, low price of $18. Guys, you’ll have to shell out $38.
Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays are slightly pricier, with ladies paying $30 and the gentlemen shelling out $38. But wait! On Wednesdays, you get free-flow finger food too; how’s that for worth it?
