‘SingaPob’ brings the best of Singapore’s nightlife scene to Poblacion

The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) shakes up Manila's nightlife scene for the first time ever with “SingaPob” – a two-week bar takeover featuring a lineup of Singapore bars recognized as some of the best watering holes in Asia and the world.

The Lion City's drinking scene is as diverse and eclectic as its cuisine. Both locals and visitors in search of creative libations will find no shortage of spots. From speakeasy cocktail bars to craft beer purveyors, two neighborhoods that masterfully showcase Singapore's vibrant array of nightlife destinations are Chinatown and City Hall. Tucked in between their heritage sites and historic buildings are many of the country's award-winning bars which the STB has handpicked to bring to Manila.

A lineup of award-winning drink spots from Singapore will take over select establishments in Makati. A lineup of award-winning drink spots from Singapore will take over select establishments in Makati.
