CLARKE QUAY – If you end up in Clarke Quay and want somewhere lively to go where you can rock out to great beats and drink really good beer, The Pump Room should be on your radar. Part microbrewery, part bistro and part club, this is the place to go for fresh beers straight from the vat and fist-pumping parties that keep going until the early hours of the morning.
Why you should come here:
The beer of course! For ten years now The Pump Room has been getting rave reviews for their small-batch handcrafted beers that they make on site. They usually have five different beers on offer including the signature Pump Room Lager, Golden Ale, Scottish Ale, Wheat Ale and India Pale Ale, and they also do seasonal beers like Cherry Ale and the Brewmaster’s Reserve Bohemian Lager. Throw in great happy hour deals on beers, house pour spirits and wines, plus some pretty awesome DJs hitting the decks, and you’ve got a reason to stay out way past your bedtime.
What we love:
The Pump Room’s Golden Ale has won tons of gold medals at beer competitions in Asia and around the world, and after one sip it’s pretty easy to see why. The taste is nice and hoppy with just a hint of citrus, and the flavours are super clean owing to the fact that the beer is unfiltered, unpasteurised and they don’t use any chemicals in the brewing process. If you’re looking for something a little bit more malty, go for the India Pale Ale.
Even though the party at The Pump Room usually doesn’t get going until the DJs go on a little bit later in the evening, we highly suggest coming during happy hour when all of their beers are one-for-one and house pour spirits and wines are 50% off. Happy hours take place every day from Sunday to Thursday from 5pm to 10pm and on Fridays, Saturdays and public holidays from 5pm to 9pm.
Draught beers from $10.50++ to $16.50++, appetisers start at $12++, and mains start at $22++.
