People typically visit Tiong Bahru for one of three reasons — food, cafés, or an abundance of Instagram-worthy backdrops. There are plenty of decent hawker centres and markets around, as well as the beloved Tiong Bahru Bakery flagship that remains a firm favourite (those kouign amanns, right?).

The neighbourhood is also saturated with restaurants, and any hungry visitor will find options ranging from sushi to gluten-free bites, and more. But what happens if there’s the need for an after-dinner drink, or if you have plans to start your Friday night there?

Fret not, as Tiong Bahru has a handful of fantastic bars where you can park yourselves. And we’ve got you sorted with this list of drinking destinations around its various streets.

But you don’t plan to head to Tiong Bahru anytime soon, check out our Tanjong Pagar, Telok AyerOrchard Road, or Ann Siang Hill and Club Street bar guides. Those looking for new bars around the city can also see our latest round-up here. You’ll never run out of options.
