Sticking true to its roots of an Indie Live Music Venue, both our pub in Boat Quay and Little India provide platforms for up-and-coming local bands, hosts fun activities from weekly quiz nights to quarterly beer pong tournaments and serve the cheapest drinks in town, guaranteed to provide an unforgettable party and crazy good times. Prince of Wales Little India is a delightful treat for culture vultures looking to dive into Singapore's vibrant ethnic neighbourhoods. The tiny bylanes of Little India are constantly buzzing with activity, and provide a multi-sensory treat with vivid colours, aromatic scents of spices and scrumptious traditional Indian dishes. Little India, east of the Singapore River, is flanked by other cultural hubs of the city, with Chinatown located right across the river and Kampong Glam to the south, both accessible by bus.

About the only pub in the area. With an average selection of outrageously expensive brews, and a bored looking staff that goes through the motions. You're better off getting your drinks from one of the Indian run groceries around than spending any dime in that joint

Good rest stop in little inda, with air conditioning and cheap beer (3 Asahi or Carlsberg for 15S$). They have a wide variety of drinks and some food too. It's quiet in the afternoon and the music is nice. You can book a table to make sure you have a spot there.

"I did not review the rooms - just the bar.. I would guess backpacker style though."
"if you can afford it, go for the private room. you will enjoy the "social" part of a backpacker and the independence of a private room"
"A bit pricy for a backpackers."
"Darwin private room is good value"
"don't be turned off if a website advertises it as a 22 bed dorm, it is actually three separate rooms of 8, 8 & 6, totaling 22 beds."
