Nearly all nightclubs in Singapore, and especially those in the Marina Bay area, are gearing up for their biggest parties of the year to bid 2019 adieu. Among them are:
The Marquee nightclub at Marina Bay Sands is ringing in the new year with Dutch DJs W&W. Known for their 2014 breakthrough hit Bigfoot, among others, the duo was formed in 2007 and has headlined dance festivals around the world.

Countdown to the new year by the beach and under the stars at Sentosa island’s Tanjong Beach Club. Sip champagne and boogie to funky tunes by DJ Andrew M while you’re at it.
120 Tanjong Beach Walk
Bar Rouge at Swissotel The Stamford is hosting an electrifying countdown party with a view of the annual fireworks display set to light up the Marina Bay area. Those coming for their “Electric Sky” party are expected to be dressed in midnight blue.

This might be a good option for party lovers with a taste for fine dining. Monti is welcoming 2020 with a special new year’s menu with highlights that include beef ribs and Agnolotti pasta served with truffles. The party starts at the stroke of midnight.

Enjoy dancing in a quiet environment? The Silent Disco party returns for a countdown this year at the Empress Lawn in front of the Asian Civilisation Museum.

The Kampong Glam precinct’s Haji Lane will be transformed into a funky town brimming with partygoers sipping on tequila and margaritas while dancing to old school hip-hop and funk music. It’s an outdoor shindig for those who prefer street parties to nightclubs.

If you’re not into parties but still feel like marking the occasion, there’s a host of concerts and performances happening at the end of this month that might fit the bill.

Uncle Ringo, the organizer behind the neighborhood funfairs known fondly recalled from many childhoods, has roped in international talents from the Great Circus of Europe troupe.
