Singapore, perhaps surprisingly to some, has one of the best bar and nightlife scenes in Asia, and it just seems to be getting better and better.

Not so long ago, a new government law was passed that allows table and bar top dancing ala 'Coyote Ugly', but more importantly the new law allowed some bars and disco's to stay open all night!! Somewhat ironically, this was around the same time, when Thailand, famous for its more sleazy nightlife, was introducing a law that was dramatically cutting the opening hours of bars and clubs across the Kingdom.

 Of course, most people could not afford an all night session in Singapore as prices are still very high, but these changes are very interesting, and reflect how the government is adapting to global competition by making all aspects of life in Singapore that much more appealing and less restrictive. After all, if expats are happy to move to  Singapore then this will help to increase investment, making more jobs and opportunities for locals the economy as a whole.

In fact, if you delve deeper into the situation, then you will find that Singapore is gradually managing to change its image from a "Fine City" - referring to the numerous penalties and unusual laws in the city state, to a "Fine City" that refers to the quality, cosmopolitan, well educated and sophisticated lifestyle that is available to its residents and to visitors alike.

Below we take a look at some of the best bars in Singapore :

 Brix - This is the site of the infamous old Brannigans, located beneath the Grand Hyatt Hotel on Scotts Road. A few years ago Brannigans was closed and one of the trendiest bars in Singapore re-opened it in its place. Decorated in a refreshing use of, yes you guessed it - bricks, this very popular bar gets very busy at weekends and late during the week. When the bar opened management said they were trying to keep away the 'professional ladies' that Brannigans was so famous, at first they succeeded but recent visits suggest that this policy has been relaxed or was simply too difficult to enforce. Prices are staggeringly high with a beer costing around Sin $ 17, wines by the bottle can be a cheaper option.

 The Bus - Not a bar but a pub crawl! This unique idea offers people the chance to be driven around 4 different pre-determined bars, enjoying some tequila on the bus and stopping at the different bars to enjoy more!  The bus generally departs at 19:45 and runs till late with tickets costing Sin $ 35. This is a fun way to see some of the different bars in Singapore, especially if it is your first visit to Singapore.

 Coyote Ugly - One of the bars that offers bar top dancing, where the bar maids dance on the bar, offer the lime from their mouths after a tequila shot etc. To be honest we felt that there was not an awful lot to see but it was very busy especially with local Singaporeans enjoying their new found freedom.

 Orchard Towers - This is not somewhere to take the wife or girlfriend - nudge, nudge, wink, wink - but as many travellers to Singapore are business travellers it could come in handy. Orchard Towers is one tower block on Orchard Road that is full of 'girlie bars' with girls from Thailand, Philippines, China etc. The most famous bar/disco in Orchard Towers is called Top Ten and can be found on the last floor.

 supperclub - located opposite the famous Raffles Hotel, this trendy club is related to the famous supperclubs in Amsterdam, Istanbul etc. We were surprised to find supperclub Singapore is not related to the Bed Supperclub in Bangkok, which we were surprised to find is a copy - albeit a very good copy - of the original supperclub concept from Amsterdam. Full review to come.
