If you are able to fill in the blanks, you are probably part of the generation that bought physical music albums before Youtube and Apple Music swooped in to make our lives easier.

Now, just picture yourself with your friends or colleagues, sipping on a cold glass of thirst-quenching beer on a Friday night. The waiter serves you a plate of mentaiko fries that tastes as good as it smells. The guitarist on stage lightly strums his guitar, signalling the start of their alluring performance… Without further ado, this is the 5 Best Venues with Live Bands in Singapore to Party Away.
