Best Live Bands in Singapore

#1 – Wala Wala Cafe Bar

Introduction:

Enter Wala Wala Cafe Bar – relaxed yet sophisticated in an inimitable way, where beer aficionados rejoice and where Singapore’s live music used to reign (2001-2020). Set in Holland Village since 1993, one would soak up the atmosphere under the stars at the terrace which most draws one’s eye – where the crowd congregates with their drinks on a balmy night, either with their eyes glued to world sports broadcasted on the LCD screens with a beer or mojito in hand, or indulge the grub with close friends, perhaps doing a little bit of people-watching.

About

The bill of fare looks westwards with hints of local delights. The Wala kitchen churns out the signature cast of pizzas, pastas, chicken wings, and many more tapas. A must-try would be our homemade Jalapeños Stuffed with Cream Cheese and the Beef Meatballs in Spicy Tomato Cream Sauce.

Wala Wala Cafe Bar has a different experience depending on what you’re looking for and makes for a low-key evening out. Already a favourite along the Lorong Mambong strip, we say come on over and be a part of our history as we turn 30 next year!

#2 – Hero’s

Introduction:

The sprawling 2,500sq ft. venue, located in a prime spot on Circular Road, is decorated in a contemporary yet timeless Old West Saloon style. The concept of Hero’s came about as the group’s directors felt there was a gap in the market for a live-music establishment with a strong identifying theme. Its sister outlet Mogambo Bar & Restaurant, also in the Boat Quay area, opened in Singapore in June 2011. It boasts brick and stone wall fixtures, and dark recycled woods with steampunk accents. Longhorn skulls, saddles and other paraphernalia adorn the walls, lending to an authentic Wild West feel.

About

Besides its draft beer selection, Hero’s menu features a plethora of quality bourbons and whiskys, craft beers, cocktails (try our signature Hero’s mojito!) and shooters.

The kitchen, helmed by home-grown company Foodcoholic, serves up a mouth-watering fusion of Indian & Western cuisine, with kebabs, wraps, pizzas, pastas and loads of other pub grub on offer – perfect to enjoy while watching sports or listening to your favourite tunes played live.

Hero’s current resident band, Fusion Act, from the Philippines, performs a mix of rock and pop numbers from the 1970s and beyond every night from 10pm.

#8 – Maduro

Introduction:

To some, Maduro is a wine and whisky connoisseur’s dream come true. To others, a listening lounge devoted to preserving the virtuosity of the classics – both genres and libations alike. To the select few, Maduro is their own secret slice of heaven on earth. According to old Spanish etymology, Maduro depicts an act “to ripen, mature”.

But for those who know him, Maduro is, without a doubt, the sum of all the best parts that maketh a man none other than Mr. P.

About

Both a classically trained pianist and a dogged realist since young, P taught himself the ways of jazz and pop through pure experimentation, and—at the mere age of 18—started earning his keep by making his way around the local gig circuit. Within a decade, he found himself playing in some of Singapore’s top live music institutions, from the iconic Tiara Supper Club in Shangri-La Hotel to the Westin’s prestigious Palm Grill outpost, alongside the likes of Frances Yip and Anita Sarawak.

Fresh in his thirties, P was amongst the most sought-after first call pianists in Singapore. At the same time, he was also on the verge of making a name for himself as a real estate broker. Tired of living from gig to gig, P made the choice to let go of his first love and focus entirely on his second. With passion to a zenith degree invested in everything he does—unfazed by a city obsessed with building up—P soon carved a niche for himself in the dealings of Singapore’s stodgy, storied shophouses in the historic districts of Telok Ayer and Emerald Hill.

Eager for a larger slice of the pie, P broadened his horizons by travelling around the world, assessing some of the continent’s most promising developments, before ending up in London. Arriving in London in the early nineties—an opportune time with a market ripe for picking —and a few solid deals later, P was soon known as the trusted go-to guy for London property dealings amongst some of Singapore’s elite, a reputation that has only soared in the last seven years as he naturally moved on to larger commercial and investment deals; as well as deals beyond London – most notably the brokerage and conceptualisation of one JIA hotel in Hong Kong—Asia’s first Philippe Starck-designed boutique hotel—which went on to form the stepping stones of Singaporean restaurateur Yenn Wong’s legacy.
