Singaporetourismmap: St Monica's

I bring to acknowledge that Boat Quay is non to a greater extent than oft than non my get-go alternative of places to become for a nighttime out inwards Singapore these days.  Nearly 5 years of living hither bring made me appreciate at that spot is a lot to a greater extent than to the isle than this niggling stretch, but when St Monica's came on to my radar I was curious too decided to give it a go.  St Monica's is at the far halt of Boat Quay, good past times all the initial bars too restaurants that engulf the unsuspecting tourists equally they explore this spot.  Make certain y'all proceed on walking to uncovering it for yourself.

St Monica's is marketed equally a dive bar which, according to Wikipedia, is an informal pub or bar oft considered disreputable, sinister or a detriment to the community.  When I thought well-nigh it a niggling to a greater extent than I realised that I bring oft described places equally dives (though mayhap non inwards Singapore) too that this was never meant inwards a gratuitous way.  St Monica, afterward who the bar is named, is the patron saint of alcoholics, disappointing children, victims of adultery too hard marriages which alone adds to the thought of it beingness a thoroughly dodgy but, let's facial expression upward it, an interesting type of house to become to.  These 2 points got me fifty-fifty to a greater extent than curious!  St Monica's didn't disappoint too is rather cool too definitely worth a catch whatsoever your personal province of affairs may be.

The bar is genuinely inwards the sometime location of the Spiffy Dapper, expect out for the sign (pictured below) higher upward the side entrance door of the shophouse too brand your agency upward the steep, black staircase to the instant flooring above.  Once y'all are within you'll straight off notice that St Monica's is stripped back, dimly lit, basic too wonderfully unpretentious, a breath of fresh air with all the other bars inwards the area.  The decor is minimalist with unproblematic tables too stools for sitting on too simply a twosome of framed collages of diverse stone band logos on the wall behind the bar.  There is no drinks carte du jour to peruse, what y'all encounter behind the bar inwards price of beers (they acquit a attain of American too English linguistic communication arts and crafts beers), ciders too spirits is what they bring but the barmen tin dismiss also brand y'all a cocktail or 2 if y'all want.  I'm non a beer drinker thus stuck to spirits too also had a cocktail, a especially skillful daiquiri.  I create involve to larn dorsum ane time to a greater extent than to sample around others though.  My hubby tried ane of the beers, equally recommended past times the barman, an odd whisky based ane from Scotland.  The beer is brewed with Scottish H2O which is too thus conditioned inwards barrels used to mature Scotch whisky giving it a unique taste.  You tin dismiss encounter the bottle inwards the photograph below.

The soundtrack to savor your drinks besides is a fabulous stone one, at that spot was around peachy music the nighttime nosotros visited too enough of those stone anthems nosotros all know too tin dismiss sing along to from the 70s too 80s.  It's loud too fun too has had me humming a few of those classics all week!  With St Monica's set dorsum vibe it'll hold out no surprise that it feels similar y'all tin dismiss become at that spot dressed equally relaxed equally y'all want, it's all well-nigh turning up, enjoying a few drinks too having fun.  Naturally beingness on the instant flooring of a shophouse inwards Boat Quay also guarantees a prissy thought over the Singapore river too downwards on to the crowds passing past times below.  We sat correct past times the windows too at that spot was something form of fun well-nigh spying downwards on everyone walking past times underneath.

I loved St Monica's too its 'couldn't attention less' mental attitude too recollect it's definitely a welcome add-on to the scene inwards the Boat Quay area.  Somewhere I would definitely pick out to become to again.  Go detect it besides asap too allow me know what y'all think!  

St Monica's is opened upward Mon - Sabbatum from 6pm - 1am.
