It’s Singapore’s Golden Jubilee and there are countless “SG50” parties and deals out there for anyone in the island nation during this long holiday weekend (from 7 – 10 August). We’ve picked out 5 party options during this period that you shouldn’t miss.
7-9 Aug: Get your jig on at Jig-a-Jig bar
Nestled in the middle of Chinatown, get like Jenko and Scmidt on uh… 22 Mosque Street – Jig-a-Jig Bar. With all the hustle, bustle, closed roads and crowds expected in the heart of town, get away from it all and take advantage of the long weekend to shoot some pool and have drinks that don’t blow up your wallet.
Grab your buds and get a bucket of 5 Bud(wiser)s for $40 or beer towers for $50 (till midnight). Not into beer? well, pop in before 9pm and get a bottle of vodka for only $50.
Feel like showing of your skills with a stick and some coloured balls? Once you knock your challenger down in pool, he (or she) gets to knock back some Jaeger for only $5.
Feeling magnanimous and just want to spread that SG50 love? Ring the bell to buy everyone at the bar a shot… go ahead you know you want to.
Pro tip: the honey glazed wings are to die for.

1-9 August Nightly: High-Tech Visual Showcase to Transform Facade of the Fullerton Hotel
Inspired by the hotel’s illustrious 128-year history as a city landmark and the pivotal role the Fullerton Building played in the history of Singapore, the 8-minute long music and video extravaganza, entitled “A Celebration of Our Heritage”, will offer glimpses of Singapore over the past 50 years, showcasing the various key moments that have taken place at the Fullerton Square, including scenes from the numerous election campaign rallies that took place during Singapore’s development years.
In a significant nod to The Fullerton Hotel’s previous role as Singapore’s General Post Office from 1928 to 1996, much of the visual masterpiece will incorporate colourful stamps that were circulated in Singapore during the last 50 years. People watching the video projection will get a chance to see these stamps ‘come to life’ in large 3D images that will move and dance their way across the hotel’s façade, as the latter is transformed into a stunning theatrical backdrop.
On 7th and 8th August, from 7.30pm, The Fullerton Hotel will also distribute complimentary kachang putih (roasted or sweetened peanuts or beans traditionally sold in paper cones) and potong ice cream (rectangular popsicles in local flavours such as red bean, yam and durian) at One Fullerton to add to the sense of nostalgia.
Additionally, visitors to The Fullerton Heritage precinct during this period can also stand to enjoy a whole slew of festive celebrations taking place around the area during this celebratory period. As part of the National Day Celebrations, spectators in the vicinity of One Fullerton and The Fullerton Bay Hotel can view the parade ‘live’ via LCD screens that will be set up around the bay.
In keeping with the celebratory mood, The Fullerton Hotel will also be rewarding ten lucky winners with a complimentary weekend night’s stay.
