Today, I am blogging about something different as all the while I was covering mostly all my day events. As Singapore was ranked second for its nightlife and dining by the Global Country Brand Index (2006), I thought it will be good for me to cover a night spot which I have patronized a couple of times recently – The Arena (beside Whopper Bar Singapore) which is located at the prime entertainment hub of Clarke Quay (Address: 3B River Valley Road #01-08 Clarke Quay Singapore 179021).
With a huge 10,000 sq. ft area and S$3 million renovation bill, the decor is modern, classy and luxurious. Ever since its opening in 2007, The Arena has established itself into a popular R&B / Hip hop live music destination for a crowd of all ages in Singapore. The place was still empty when we reach early around 10pm but most of the good tables were already reserved. Photo above shows the entrance and exit doors.
The party-goers will start arriving around 11pm and in no time, the place will be packed! In front of us, there was a group of ladies celebrating Hen’s Night for their bride-to-be friend. Also, they played a few games with the other party-goers, including us as well. 😛
The Arena’s house band that comprises of the multiple talented African-Americans will entertain you with the popular R&B / Hip Hop hits from the likes of Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce and Shakira.
Bar counter at The Arena – classy chandeliers and meretriciously-detailed illuminated walls. Nice!
We sat near the bar counter, away from the stage and dance floor area, as it was quieter so that we could still talk. For those who like to catch the best action, do camp near the stage area! Beware as it’s going to be loud but still it has it’s perks! 😛
Spotted a disco ball near where we were seated. Hmmm, let me check whether I brought along my laser light? ^_^
Our booze for the night – 2 bottles of Chivas Regal (comes with 3 mixers free for each bottles).
Some snacks to go with the drinks – chicken wings and cheese fries. Oh yes, no smoking in the club! You have to go out of the club to get burn your ciggies.
Also, in The Arena, there will be numerous friendly ladies going round to sell tequila shots. If you need extra boost of alcohol, do call out for them and they will be most happy to serve you. Finally leaving you with some videos that I took in The Arena. 🙂
