It’s midnight, you’ve had a few and now you’re famished. You could go for teochew porridge or do another round at Spize. But wouldn’t it be better if you grabbed one for the road and a bite to eat? Settle your (almost) drunk bum down at these slick supper spots – and who knows where, and what else the night will bring.

If the night didn’t already take you behind its blinking pink Psychic neon sign, then round midnight is prime time to pop by. While the drinks (potent free pour cocktails) and company (always unexpected) are the main draw cards, their late menu is no slouch. Offered till 12.30am (Sunday – Friday) and 1.30am (Saturday), their staff meal ($13) is always a safe bet, or if you stay late enough, the chicken soup. However it’s the supersized Ramly Burger with Fried Egg, Smokled Aioli and Garlic Fries ($23) and chef Julia Jaksic’s signature Bone Marriw Poppers ($15) that’ll be the remedy your tomorrow self will thank you for when you wake. Time it right and you might catch ex-28 HK alum Michael Callahan shaking things up behind the bar, a great excuse for that one last drink.

Sometimes only comfort food will do. And when the cravings hit, Mitzo’s 1am last order comes in handy. With a menu of Cantonese standards given a contemporary spin, bar snacks like the golden friend soft shell crab with curry floss ($22) will keep you drinking well into the night. Pair dim sum orders like prawn dumplings with black caviar ($12), fried mango beancurd roll ($10) with one of their Asian Inspirations cocktails (from $20) made with ingredients like gingseng, tea and chrysantamum. Heavier dishes like the fried rice with lobster meat ($24) will hold off hunger pangs till lunchtime – just enough time to sleep off the hangover.
Available till 1am from Thursdays to Saturday, and the eve of public holidays.

For a nightcap – they have more than 50 whiskies to choose from – and possibly more, navigate to Adrift at Marina Bay Sands for their late-night menu. Served daily till 2am, the menu is separated into 5 categories (Raw, Snacks, Skewers, Vegetables and more, Bincho) and best tackled as a shared exercise.
Depending on everyone’s appetite, there’s everything from a seafood platter ($75 per person), abalone sushi ($17), skewers (the pork belly, $10 a pair, Wagyu beef served with achiote-chili vinegar, $24) to Iberico pork chop ($32) and live Hokkaido scallop ($30 a piece) grilled Bincho (hot coals) style. Not to be forgotten, Adrift’s signature cocktails created by New York bar consultant Sam Ross, we’re big fans of their martinis.
