The Beer Market has a very interesting and cool concept of replicating the stock market except your companies have been changed for the beers on draught and in bottles. Depending on sales and “new” IPO’s the price of drinks fluctuates…


The Beer Market is up a flight of dangerously shallow and high stairs, beware if you have size 11′s and are a few sheets to the wind like me! On entering there is a large stock market wall to the left and various screens relaying whats happening on the market at that moment. There was also a very loud and rather poor band playing. On a Friday night this place is absolutely jumping and we failed to get a table or even a table to sit drinks on.


Being a Friday night all the beers on the stock market even under “new” IPO seemed to be more expensive than any other bar we were in. I suppose if you are willing to just follow the market and drink anything you could have a cheap night but if your particular poison is all you will drink and prices are high that evening its going to cost…

Cool concept though, perhaps elsewhere in the world where booze is cheaper this would be a great night out.

I've been to the Beer Market twice - both times with a bunch of friends for wings & beer. The wings are pretty good and the service is also decent. If you go during the week, they have wing specials and it really is a good deal (we went on Thursday). The beer prices fluctuate like a stock market but you can get some really good deals (e.g. Corona for as cheap at $9.45 which is quite good by Singapore River standards). If you are someone who can drink just about anything, you can constantly order the cheapest thing on the menu drinkwise. The prices are displayed on a big screen and change every so often (I think it's every 30 minutes maybe). They had a great band the nights we were there. They also have some dart boards and a pool table so you can have some fun with that. The dartboards are all automated (if that's the correct word for it) so you don't have to do any subtraction, it calculates your score for you. We had a great time playing. Go early for the best deals (we went around 6PM).

Located at the tail's end of Clarke Quay, the drink prices change all the time. Fun concept, but I was a little confused figuring out the pricing on the board. Ended up just asking the bartender how much each drink costs, haha.

Come earlier to score seats, the tables are all clustered close together so it's really awkward to be standing anywhere except at the bar top and tiny dance floor. Good live band though.

Didn't try the items on the menu, but they had a large selection.

We were able to drink some good imported beers at quite a good price. There was a good band playing as well. Quite a nice set up. It wasnt so busy the night we went and the staff were a bit slack with their table service. It is worth a look in. However (quite surprisingly) the toilets were quite dirty an obviously not properly serviced for sometime. Lift your game Beer Market and service those toilets. Believe me its the main thing that I remember about my visit
