The Keong Saik hood is fast becoming one of our favourite after-work hang-out spots, mainly because there are some seriously cool spots close by that have buzzing vibes, enticing food, and fab happy hour specials going on. If you’re looking for great happy hour deals on bites and bevvies, check out these hip hotspots around Keong Saik Road.
If you haven’t checked out Humpback yet, you should definitely go for the seafood alone, as this cheerful little place has simply superb oysters, seafood dishes, and small plates from the land and the sea. Even better if you go during their new extended happy hours between 5pm and 8pm, as you can get freshly shucked oysters from Washington and British Columbia for as little as $2 a pop, plus great drink specials on signature cocktails for just $14, wines by the glass for $13 and pints of draught beer for $13.

Located in a shophouse on Craig Road, this laid-back little spot is part bottle shop and part industrial chic bar. Sporting concrete walls and smattering of wooden high-top tables, this is a great place to pop into after work for a glass of vino, premium whisky or chilled sake. Hip music adds to the vibe, and the bartenders are happy to help you pick out a selection either for drinking in or taking away. They also have a good selection of bar bites on offer.

Step inside this stylish izakaya and you feel as if you’ve been transported to a dimly lit underground Tokyo bar where leather benches abound, cartoon strips adorn the walls, and the bar serves up an array of Japanese-inspired cocktails and eats. As an added bonus they have great happy hour drink specials from Tuesday to Friday between 5pm and 9pm and Saturdays from 6pm to 9pm when you can get one-for- one premium spirits, cocktails, wines by the glass and bottles of sake.

We love the fun and funky vibe at El Tardeo, a modern Spanish tapas bar serving up specialty cocktails and small plates, especially on Tuesday nights when the Moscatel bubbles flow freely from 6pm to 8pm. However, this one’s just for the ladies, so all you gents will have to look on in envy. Not to worry though—we’re sure you’ll find more than enough on their ample beverage list to keep you occupied for while.
