Party Like It’s The ’80s At This Retro Arcade Bar In Tanjong Pagar

Ah, the 1980s. Whether you were born in the 80s, grew up in the 80s, or never set foot in that infamous decade, hearing the term “1980s” probably makes you think of something.

It was the era of MTV, from which you (or your parents) watched music videos of the likes of Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Wham and Barbra Streisand on repeat.

Fashion was weird, colour combinations were the worst, music was over-digitised and commercialism consumed everyone.

Paying homage to the 80s, this arcade bar takes you back to the glory days. It’s throwback everyday at Nineteen80 – the latest bar to celebrate nostalgia with old school arcade games, 80s hits and neon-heavy backdrops.

[caption id="attachment_36736" align="aligncenter" width="2048"]bars singapore Image Credit: Nineteen80 Facebook[/caption]

Girls Just Want To Have Fun

Singapore’s latest retro arcade bar, will be sweeping you away with some serious waves of nostalgia. Step through the pink neon-lit entrance and you’ll be greeted by a row of retro arcade video game machines – think Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Mortal Kombat and Street Fighters.

[caption id="attachment_36728" align="aligncenter" width="1875"]bars singapore Image Credit: Nineteen80 Facebook[/caption]


[caption id="attachment_36729" align="aligncenter" width="1600"]bars singapore Image Credit: Nineteen80 Facebook[/caption]

That’s not it.

Strike your best pose and take a selfie amongst the many murals with 80s pop culture references like Bruce Lee and the iconic “1-177155-4” pager code (it spells out “I-MISS-U” on the pager if you didn’t know!).

[caption id="attachment_36732" align="aligncenter" width="2048"]bars singapore Image Credit: Nineteen80 Facebook[/caption]


[caption id="attachment_36731" align="aligncenter" width="2048"]bars singapore Image Credit: Nineteen80 Facebook[/caption]

Music wise – resident DJs will play a mix of in-house urban beats from the 80s, 90s and 00s. They also host weekly themed nights, including “Miss-Demeanor Ladies’ Night” on Wednesdays, ‘Fight For Your Right’ and ‘Radio Ga Ga’ nights later in the week, for guests to tease their glorious hair and get their groove on.

[caption id="attachment_36734" align="aligncenter" width="898"] Image Credit: Nineteen80 Facebook[/caption]

There’s no denying the enduring popularity of some of the eras classic cocktails. Staying true to their theme, Nineteen80’s signature cocktails are mostly sweet-tasting – just like the 80s.

Get yourself some modernised classics such as the ‘Ice-T Hustler Remix’ – a Long Island Iced Tea with a hint of cloudy apple, the ‘Super Disco Blend’ – a Blue Lagoon with a yuzu finish, or stick to the true ‘Vodka Ribena’ – a mix of vodka, Ribena and soda, sure to inspire those nostalgic feels.

[caption id="attachment_36733" align="aligncenter" width="2048"]bars singapore Image Credit: Nineteen80 Facebook[/caption]

If you’re planning on throwing a party, Nineteen80 are also open for private bookings! Whether it be a birthday, hens or stag night, corporate party or a brand launch – they’ve got you covered with old school arcade games, nostalgic cocktails and of course your favourite throwback hits.

Looking for a chill night out with friends? Grab your craziest outfits and step into the portal for your fix of nostalgia!

The Quietest Party In Town Turns Two This Weekend At MBS Observation Deck

Silent Disco Feature

Clubbing is a pretty good way to let off some steam after a long week, but it’s kind of a “do it once and you’ve seen it all” kind of activity — step into any club in Singapore and you can expect them to be sticking to the same formula of dim lights, tight crowds and music so loud that it’ll age your eardrums by five years.

Okay, the first two are an unavoidable part of the scene, but if you’re thinking of putting on your dancing shoes this weekend and want to experience something a little different, then Silent Disco Asia’s 2nd Birthday might be just what the DJ ordered.

Not Your Average Night Out

For the uninitiated, here’s a video showing what The Silent Disco is all about:

For the benefit of those reading this at work / school / public transport, here’s the breakdown: every participant is given a pair of LED headphones, and will listen to music from them instead of being bombarded by some blaring speakers.

Another signature feature of the event is there’ll be not one, not two, but three DJ’s on the decks, and you’ll be able to seamlessly switch to a different genre of music at the touch of a button. These “channels” are colour coded via those LED’s, so it’s easy to find other like-minded people to dance with.


[caption id="attachment_36697" align="alignnone" width="1800"]Silent Disco (Image Credit: Silent Disco Asia)[/caption]

It might look like the biggest gathering of uncoordinated dancers to anyone watching from the outside, but chances are you’ll be having too much fun to notice or care.

Get High, Literally

For their 2nd birthday, it looks like the folks at Silent Disco Asia are pulling out all the stops — the event will take place at none other than the Marina Bay Sands rooftop, transforming the already-stunning observation deck into a 500 capacity dance floor.

And if you end up enjoying yourself a little too much and need a place to recover halfway, don’t worry: a ticket will also grant you admission to Ce La Vi, which — according to that video — is where the crazy rich asians hang out. As far as rest areas go, this is probably as posh as it gets.

[caption id="attachment_36690" align="aligncenter" width="786"]Silent Disco Ce La Vi Her words, not ours.
(Image Credit: South China Morning Post YouTube)[/caption]

Early bird tickets are already sold out, but you can still get in on the festivities for the regular price of $45. Considering that admission to the observation deck alone normally costs $23 and a ticket includes one complimentary drink worth $20, we say that’s a pretty good deal.

It definitely beats queuing up at Zouk again, at least.

Silent Disco Asia 2nd Birthday
Venue: Marina Bay Sands Observation Deck
Date & Time: 25th August 2018, 10pm – 2am
Admission: $45

Zouk’s New 3-Tiered Membership Gives Clubbers Free Entry To Their Clubs In The Region

If you’re a hardcore clubber, you might want to stop for a second and listen to this.

[caption id="attachment_33262" align="aligncenter" width="541"] GIF Credit:[/caption]

Singapore’s longest running music and nightlife institution, Zouk Singapore, recently unveiled their all-new membership programme – a three-tiered loyalty programme specially catered to old-timers and regular customers.

Along with the launch of the membership programme, comes the Friends Of Zouk card which is an annual subscription programme for those who are looking to be invited into Zouk membership and be kept in the loop of Zouk’s latest and hottest events.

Did we mention that they also unveiled a swanky new Members Lounge by American Express?

[caption id="attachment_33263" align="aligncenter" width="1600"] Image Credit: Zouk Singapore[/caption] [caption id="attachment_33267" align="aligncenter" width="1600"] Image Credit: Zouk Singapore[/caption] [caption id="attachment_33268" align="aligncenter" width="1600"] Image Credit: Zouk Singapore[/caption] [caption id="attachment_33270" align="aligncenter" width="1600"] Image Credit: Zouk Singapore[/caption]

The new Members Lounge is situated on the upper balcony of the Zouk main room, where members get to beat drink queues, hang out, and dance while overlooking the dance floor below.

Friends Of Zouk

Don’t be mistaken. The Friends Of Zouk card is NOT the membership card. It grants you the opportunity to be invited into the Zouk membership programme, based on how often you use the card.

[caption id="attachment_33258" align="aligncenter" width="1415"] Image Credit: Zouk Singapore[/caption]

But don’t worry, the Friends Of Zouk card isn’t just for show.

It rewards the cardholder with exclusive quarterly promotions, access to third-party Zouk partners promotions, as well as priority pre-purchase for cover charge for EP!C Nights and other special events.

If you sign up for the Friends Of Zouk card from now till 31 March 2018, you’ll get 2 complimentary drinks from Zouk!

Do note that there is a $20 annual fee for the Friends Of Zouk card.

For Star cardholders, there is a $30 annual fee, and the card grants you complimentary entry to all Zouk outlets across the region, access to the Members Lounge, member and partner promotions, and priority pre-purchase cover charge for special nights.

Sun Member Privileges

If you’ve accrued a minimum spending of $24,000 within a 12-month period on your Star card, you will be promoted to a Sun member.

[caption id="attachment_33260" align="aligncenter" width="1415"] Image Credit: Zouk Singapore[/caption]

On top of existing Star member privileges, Sun members also have their $30 annual fee waived, priority table bookings, 10% bottle discount on selected spirits at Zouk Singapore and Redtail Bar by Zouk, and receive a complimentary bottle of champagne upon first table booking during your birthday month.

Kaleidoscope Member Privileges

Top spending members in a year will get to qualify for the much-coveted Kaleidoscope card.

[caption id="attachment_33261" align="aligncenter" width="1415"] Image Credit: Zouk Singapore[/caption]

Kaleidoscope cardholders, on top of the Sun member privileges, will get to receive a complimentary bottle of customised champagne during their birthday month, a complimentary bottle of whisky for their first table booking every 6 months, exclusive invites to in-house and private third-party partner events, and dedicated services and updates by the Zouk Singapore VIP team.

Ultra SG 2017 Was Lit – Offstage, We Got Up Close And Personal With Myrne, Rave Republic, And Sam Rui

For the party people, last weekend was THE long-awaited Ultra Music Festival Singapore 2017. Like last year, the 2-day electronic dance music festival in Singapore was ultra wet, ultra muddy, and ultra amazing!

EDM heavyweights Hardwell and Tiesto drew the largest crowd at the Main stage on Saturday, 10th June. And while the drizzle that started off in the evening turned into a heavy downpour, it didn’t stop us from partying hard with Dash Berlin. It was a fantastic experience and a god-sent respite from the scorching heat.

At the Live stage, we caught Indonesian rapper Rich Chigga, and fellow home-grown talents DJ-producer Myrne, and singer-songwriter Sam Rui. Sitting between the two stages is the Resistance stage, which featured iconic UK duo Sasha & John Digweed and American house DJ-producer Jonny Vicious.

We had a serious dilemma on Day 2, because the line-ups were crazy – in a good way. From Nicky Romero, Steve Aoki, and Steve Angello headlining the Main stage, to Pendulum and KSHMR on Live stage at the other end, it’s hard to go for one set and not have #FOMO from passing up on the other big names.

Not forgetting local acts on the Live stage: home-boy ShiGGa Shay, DJ Duo Rave Republic, and singer-songwriter Jasmine Sokko.

While it didn’t rain on day 2, it was perfect weather for the party. Knife Party made a special appearance too – a big treat to the fans!

Of course there’s cake. #ultrasingapore #steveaoki #cakeme #umf #singapore #ultra

The lights and visuals were stunning. So were the sound and special effects. The free stuff like neon face and body paint, foil tattoos, photo print-outs, and goodie bags from several sponsor booths around the festival grounds added to the fun too (because we love free stuff).

As for food, drinks, and merchandise, payments had to be made via the RFID (radio frequency identification) tags on our wrist-tags. We had to top up our wrist tags via cash or credit card before buying anything – an upgrade from last year and it definitely made the ordering and collection process much easier and faster.

Another thing they ramped up this year was security. In wake of the rising terrorist-related attacks at major concerts and festivals, entrance bag checks were extremely thorough and we even got pat-downs. Kudos to the organisers and security for ensuring our safety!

We sent our DiscoverSG ambassadors down too, and this video wraps up the amazing time we had there.

We also scored the chance to chat with three home-grown artistes, Myrne, Rave Republic, and Sam Rui to get to know them a little better!


Why “Myrne”?

Avicii was taken. I tried a few other names like Tiesto and Hardwell, but it didn’t really work out.

I was a big fan of Talking Heads. The front man David Byrne wrote a book “How Music Works”, and it was a very influential book. It really affected how I saw the music industry and my career. So I ‘stole’ his name and put in the ‘M’ from my name. It was Byrne, now it’s Myrne.

If you were not producing music, what would you be doing now?

I love writing and journalism reporting, and I wanted to be a war journalist. Then I realised the high-risk environments they work in, so I decided I’d do something a bit more stable.

But otherwise, if I wasn’t into music, I’d probably do something total opposite. Probably a professor at a school, or just surround myself with learning and writing opportunities.

If you could pick out just one track of yours that represents who you are as a DJ-Producer, what would it be?

It’ll be Tiger Blood. It really represents what I am interested in when making music – collaboration. I did the track with my friend Graves, who is based in Hawaii.

The elements in the track are very symbolic of how I approach music. It’s a bit more melodic, very high energy, and a lot of old school chords and influences from R&B and old hip hop. I think that’s the best interpretation of my kind of music.

What about now? Who are some of your favourite artistes?

I’m really inspired by everything local. By people who grew up the same way I did, under the same circumstances, and yet they’ve gone on to do really interesting things.

Local artistes like Jasmine Sokko, who’s a good friend of mine and came from the same JC as me. She’s been doing electronic music and from Singapore as well so it’s really inspiring.

Sam Rui – her voice is really great. Also, Gentle Bones.

Any tips for aspiring DJs?

Don’t drop out of school.

To get good at anything, you have to spend a lot of time on it. If you’re going to be out at a cybercafé or a club all night, you’re not going to get good at DJing or producing music. You have to make some very significant lifestyle changes to improve your craft.

Rave Republic

How different is it to DJ together compared to doing it solo?

It’s completely different. We’re more reserved alone and we don’t go on the mic as much. We also have our own tracks, so we surprise each other quite a lot with tracks that we drop. Through that, we build up each other up. Whereas when we play alone, we tend to just play what we’re used to.

We complement each other and together, we have so much energy.

Working together, were there disagreements that both of you had to work out?

Surprisingly, we’ve never had an argument for the 3 years we’ve been working together. We usually see eye to eye and never really had big differences. We’re both really chill too, so we’re good.

Why “Rave Republic”?

We wanted to create a community. Like a republic, or nation kind of thing. And Rave Republic just came to us.

We asked a few people and we had a few names like Rave-olution and Rave Nation, but Rave Republic just stuck.

Any crazy fan girl stories?

A girl broke into our house once and played our PlayStation. It was very strange.

The girl walked into our Swedish house-mate’s room where he was sleeping with his girlfriend, and that girl just went: “Shhh, shhh, I’m gonna use your bathroom. Shhhh.”She was really drunk, and so was our house-mate. So the next morning, he was like: did I imagine all that?

Apparently she had broken in to use our bathroom, played our PlayStation, and left. It was very confusing and weird for all of us.

What are your future plans for Rave Republic?

We’ve only been playing in Asia this past 2 or 3 years. The next will definitely be global expansion. It is one of our biggest goals to put Asia in the global map.

If you think about Asia-based artistes, there’s pretty much no one who’s hit it big overseas. And I know we’re ang moh, but we’re proud to call ourselves Singaporeans. We’ve lived here for 7 and 9 years. We grew our act here and it is our home. We really want to take the sound and our inspiration that comes from living in Singapore and Asia, and export it world-wide. Hopefully, Rave Republic can be that act!

We’ve going to announce some big news that will help with our goal of global expansion soon!

Sam Rui

Credit: Sam Rui

Why “Sam Rui”?

My stage name kind of happened by accident.

When I was creating my Youtube channel back then, I typed my first name (Samantha) into the name box, and “Wong Sze Rui” into the surname box like an idiot. Youtube took the “Rui” as my last name, so “Samantha Rui” showed up. I liked the sound of it, and it wasn’t so far off from my actual name, so it just stuck. I cut it to Sam since everyone calls me Sam anyway.

If you were not producing music, what would you be doing now?

I don’t actually produce, I think there’s this common misconception that I produce my music since it’s electronic, but my producer is GROSSE. I write the music and lyrics, he does the actual production. I feel the need to clarify that because I’ve been asked this a couple times and I can’t take credit for something I didn’t do.

If I weren’t making or writing music, I’d be in university studying psychology. Before music, I really wanted to pursue clinical psychology and eventually take over my mom’s private practice – she’s a counsellour and linguistic therapist. I was straddling school and music but felt like I was doing both at a 50% capacity, so I decided to focus on music at this point. However, I still plan to finish my degree and pursue that.

How would you describe your music style? What would be the one track of yours that really represents who you are?

My sound changes between songs on the album, so I’d loosely say my music is alternative-electronic R&B. The one thing that ties the whole album together is what I like to think as “soul”. Again I say this loosely. I don’t mean “soul” as in a powerhouse vocal, or any sort of jazz influence.

It’s the honesty I put into my music – the way I write, the way I sing and even the way we craft the tone of the beat and lay down the vocal. For example in my album, the aim was to capture whatever I was feeling at the time – heartbreak, sadness, loneliness, clarity – and fit them into songs, like time capsules.

The one track I feel captures this best is the outro of the album – 20,000. It means a lot to me because I wrote this as sort of a summary, a letter to myself.

Outside of Ultra, where else can we catch you perform?

I’ve got a couple shows coming up later this year.

I also live stream on Instagram every once in a while, where I basically see how many songs I can play to the 1 jazz chord progression I know. If you request a song in the chat there that I know, I’ll probably sing it. Like a fun DIY acoustic show.

What are your future plans for Sam Rui?

For now it’s just putting this album out and seeing my baby finally come to life. I’ve been sitting on it so long and it’s my first big project. After it’s out I hope to do some local and regional shows.

I’d want to get back to writing and I really want to collaborate with other local and regional artists. Performing is one thing but creating the music is a whole other ball game and I haven’t done that in a while, so hopefully I get the chance to again in the tail end of this year.


We thank Myrne, Rave Republic, and Sam Rui for their time!

Zouk At Sea: Party On A Luxury Cruise Like There’s No Tomorrow

Guess where Zouk’s latest outlet is? If you’re guessing Marina Bay or Resorts World Sentosa… you’re in for a brand new experience because Zouk is sailing into new waters by opening a club on a luxury cruise ship – Zouk At Sea! And the best part of all, this ship will stop in Singapore on November 4 this year on its maiden voyage to Guangzhou.

Titled Zouk At Sea, this club will be housed in Genting Dream, the newest cruise ship by Genting Hong Kong, the casino and cruise-line conglomerate which bought over our home-grown most happening club from its founder Lincoln Cheng last year.

[caption id="attachment_8745" align="alignnone" width="980"]zouk3 Image source: South China Morning Post[/caption]

Singaporeans can join a two-night trip with this cruise from $561 per person when the ship stops at our shores this November 4. If two nights of partying is too short for you, there is also the seven-night cruise from Singapore to Hong Kong departing on November 6 which stops by three cities of Vietnam – Ho Chi Minh City, Nha Trang and Danang. Prices start from $1,759 per person, including a night’s stay at Hong Kong and a return flight on Cathay Pacific.

[caption id="attachment_8752" align="alignnone" width="1024"]Zouk Singapore souce: Asia Bars Zouk Singapore souce: Asia Bars[/caption]

Like the one at Jiak Kim Street, Zouk At Sea is made up of several concepts. It consists of an indoor dance club, a retro sports bar with billiards and a two-lane bowling alley, as well as the Zouk Beach – an outdoor day and night party deck with a splash pool that spells party More importantly, top international DJs will be brought on board for special events.

[caption id="attachment_8753" align="alignnone" width="700"]Image source: Alux Image source: Alux[/caption]

So what is this Genting Dream cruise all about? It’s an 18-deck, 3,352 passenger liner which cost a massive €707.2 million (about $1 billion) to build. Unlike the traditional family-oriented Star Cruise, this cruise line caters to the lifestyle-oriented and hip travellers who are looking for something fun yet different. It boasts over 1,100 square metres of luxury shops, champagne bar, whisky bar, Shanghai-style lounge for cabaret and burlesque acts, and more entertainment and gastronomical options.

On top of that, the Genting Dream is the only vessel in Asia to offer underwater tours. The tour takes up to four guests and one pilot for a 45-minute trip to explore the sea in a submarine. That is literally setting the bar super high!
