1. Bikini Bar
Address: 50 Siloso Beach Walk
Opening hours: 2pm – 10pm daily
Atmosphere: Vibrant, young, fun
Bikini Bar’s bright colours, upbeat vibes and beach-beautiful crowd will be familiar to anyone who’ve spent time immersed in the vibrant beachside living of Bali.
While the influence is undeniable, this Siloso Beach club nevertheless serves up its own unique blend of island chill, beach games and gorgeous seafront views.
The food menu consists mainly of bar bites rather than proper meals, so don’t come here expecting a gastronomic revelation (although, we hear the satay is quite good).
The bar is the real star here. Take your pick of mass-market favourite beers, ciders, shots, and house pours. There are also a few classic cocktails, in case you need an excuse to strike up a conversation with the hottie at the next table.

A beach club for all in the family – yes, even the family dog – to enjoy, look no further than Coastes. Enjoying a prime spot on the popular Siloso Beach near the shallow lagoon, this beach club is a popular choice for family outings.
Children and pets can play in the clean sand and the shallow waters nearby, while adults kick back with a beer or two.
Coastes’ menu is thoughtfully curated to include family-friendly choices such as pancakes, suitable for both adults and children. Drinks wise, the beach club keeps things breezy with light options such as frozen cocktails, sparkling wines and bottled beers.

Atmosphere: Laidback, idyllic, Mediterranean
If you’re hankering for a little slice of Barcelona’s world-famous beach culture, you’ll love FOC Sentosa. Known for its chill, laidback vibes – thanks to its location on the east end of tranquil Palawan Beach – FOC offers a Mediterranean-style getaway for harried souls seeking relief from the city.
The menu here, designed by Michellin Star Chef Nandu Jubany, offers up a winning selection of Spanish tapas and other popular dishes, including hearty paellas that can serve up to four pax.
The Spanish theme carries on through the drinks selection, which is headlined by a selection of Mediterranean spirits, served Spanish style in balloon glasses.

Atmosphere: Casual, relaxed, Hawaiian
A beach club in every sense of the word, Ola Beach Club serves up beachside recreation and fun with a side of DJ-spun music and a generous dollop of water sports.
Further cementing the theme is the Hawaii-inspired food and drink menu, starring native staples like Huli Huli Chicken and Kalua Pork Pizza.
For an authentic Hawaiian experience, opt for the Hawaiian Plated Lunch which comes with two sides and your choice of main. Then, finish up with your favourite cocktail, served in a mug resembling tiki-torches.
If you spend at least $50 on food and drinks, you’ll be entitled to book a single-size sunbed for up to four hours ($100 will get you a double sunbed). For larger parties of up to five people, go for the Bar Lounge Sofa, which is all yours for four hours (minimum spend of $250).

The menu here is split between casual staples like pizza, pasta and burgers, and Indonesian BBQ like satay, squid and river prawns. If you can’t decide on a main, just go for the Seafood Platter for a mixed grill of lobster, squid, prawn, fish and more, accompanied by an assortment of traditional sambal.
Beyond its food, Rumours is perhaps better known for its party-ready drinks package featuring premium spirits paired with four to six litres of popular mixers and soft drinks. And nope, there’s no beer or cider to hide behind here, so you’d better bring your A game.

The food menu stretches from downtown bar staples like fresh oysters, Atlantic prawns and calamari, to entrees plucked from fine dining like lobster rolls and fancy French-style bone-in ribeye steaks.
Drinks wise, Tanjong Beach Club caters to more discerning palates with premium labels and top-shelf fare. Those seeking to seriously party should check out the drinks package, containing Corona Beer, Perrier-Jouët Champagne and your choice of premium liquor in varying combinations.

At its tucked-away location on the edge of Sentosa, the Sand Bar’s open kitchen serves up contemporary Western grub and a drink manu populated with crowd-pleasers. This makes it the perfect hideaway to watch the world go by, cocktail in hand.
Adding to the charm are the prices here, which are relatively wallet-friendly compared to some other beach clubs on the list.
Beach clubs in the time of Covid-19
With their refreshing island vibes, Sentosa’s beach clubs and seaside bars offer a great way to escape our dreary travel-starved reality. Surrounded by alcohol and good cheer, it can be easy to forget that the pandemic remains a very real and immediate danger.
When visiting, be sure to keep the following tips in mind.
Book if you can, be early if you can’t
Many beach clubs are no longer taking reservations, or have drastically reduced their available slots. They are also likely to be operating at reduced capacity, which means fewer than usual seats and tables.
If you’re able to secure a reservation, make sure you are on time for your appointment. Otherwise, you might risk losing your slot if you fail to arrive within the grace period.
If reservations aren’t possible, try to arrive as early as you can. That way, you can increase your chances of getting a table before the club fills up.
Keep groups to eight pax, and do not intermingle
Despite numerous complaints and arrests, it seems some are still ignoring the rules on maximum group size and intermingling.
Seriously, it’s not worth risking a fine and having your name reported in the papers. Be sure to keep the size of your group to a maximum of eight.
if you happen to run into someone you know, resist the urge to run up to them. Instead maintain your distance and wave from afar. Or, just send a text.
Stay masked as much as possible, and keep your volume down
Taking a break between pitchers of Pina Coladas? Make sure to put your mask on. Also, when chatting or laughing with your friends, try to keep it down.
The louder you are, the more forcefully you are expelling saliva droplets, which means more germs are being spread.
Go contactless for added safety
Instead of digging for cash with sand-crusted fingers, consider using a credit card, smartphone or smartwatch to make contactless payments for your drinks and snacks.
Not only are digital payments faster and more convenient, they also help reduce potential Covid-19 transmission from hand-to-hand cash exchange.
In addition, going cashless also means not having to worry about lost cash, or having to deal with wet, sticky change from the bar.
And don’t forget the perks, such as cashback of up to 8 per cent when you pay with the UOB YOLO card.
