Away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD, Potato Head Singapore will be turning itself into a giant tiki party for New Year’s Eve. Aptly titled the Tiki Tropic Rumble, 36 Keong Saik Road rooftop will be filled with tiki torches, island-inspired concoctions, and great music. Head over early for a scrumptious dinner before drinks, or from 9 pm to 12 midnight for a three-hour long liquid buffet of beers, wines, and cocktails at $68.

Address: 36 Keong Saik Road, 089143

None of these bars in Singapore tickle your fancy? Why not throw your own New Year’s Eve party instead? Celebrate the new year with loved ones in the comfort of your own home – and avoid the mad rush for a cab at the end of the night. Furthermore, it’s easy to get party supplies without breaking the bank. Honestbee is one such website that provides delivery of alcohol plus you get to earn Cashback if you order via ShopBack! How’s that for a great start to the new year?
