If partying at Zouk is not your thing, here are some other fun (and non-dodgy) late-night activities you can do instead.
Who says bowling is only for middle-aged uncles? SuperBowl Jurong is open until 1am on weekdays (and 3am on weekends), so you can spend all night aiming for strikes or reliving your teenage memories at the adjoining game arcade. Either way, it’s a relaxing (and comparatively cheap) way to spend a Saturday night.
Telephone: 6266 1000 (Jurong)
Opening Hours: 10am to 1am (Sunday to Thursday), 10am to 3am (Friday/Saturday/Eve of Public Holiday)
If you’re in the mood for a more low-key night, head to Natureland for a relaxing foot massage. The spa is open 24 hours, so you can pop by in the dead of the night if you wish. Remember to call ahead to make a booking though, especially on weekends.
For a list of non-dodgy late night foot massage places, see here.

Who cares if you don’t sound as great as you’d hoped on the mic? Karaoke with friends is lazy partying at its best – you still get the music and alcohol, but without having to dress up (read: minimal makeup and no constricting clothes). What’s awesome about Tang Music Box is that they have a mini supermarket area, so you can pick up some snacks and drinks to complete your night.
The place is also relatively clean and they update their songs regularly, so you won’t be stuck with just the hits of yesteryear (Justin Bieber cough cough).

We’re probably not helping your diet here, but…who can resist the mamak food at Al Ameen am I right? Nevermind about the extra carbs you’ll be eating, the prata and mee goreng here is worth it. Oh, and have we mentioned how Al Ameen is open 24 hours daily? That means you can get your prata fix at 3am in the morning if you want. If prata is not your thing, there are also other dishes like Nasi Goreng, Pattaya Fried Rice and Chicken Briyani there.

OK, so maybe prawning doesn’t exactly sound as glamorous as having drinks at Duxton, but it is something new. Plus, you’re almost guaranteed at least one catch (yes, even if you’re a newbie) because the supply of prawns in the pond is regularly refilled. Finish off your night by barbecuing your catch of the day and having a feast.
