Think of the neighbourhoods in Singapore that you can rely on to get a solid drink after a tiring Friday, and Telok Ayer inevitably crops up. Situated in the Central Business District, Telok Ayer hugs a number of major financial centres and offices, making it a hub for after-work drinks, no matter your poison of preference.
