Attraction details
Owner description: Widely known as the home of Hip Hop in Singapore, The Butter Factory constantly delivers quality music and is a favorite amongst both locals and foreigners living or visiting the country. The club is a melting pot of urban culture and within its walls honor not only music, but art and fashion as well.

1st - miscommunication between 1st flr staff and serving staff. supposed to be 10 free entry if you bought 2 bottles but serving staff said no such thing.

2nd - we went there early to get a table but minimum spending is $400. what the hell? there's no one there and we cant even choose a table to sit? if No bottle, please stand at the corner. 1 bottle, you will have a small round table (which you can put only 3 jugs). 2 bottles, you will have a rectangle table with 4 seats for $400!!!!
Trying too hard to be an upmarket club.

3rd - crowd? most of them army dudes, undergrads which i wonder how much they squeeze their money from their parents.

this place is small so that's why it is always a long queue, creating an impression that this place is THE place to be. Once you see it for yourself, you regret paying for the cover charge. the management is definitely money-oriented. Don't bother going. my first and my last visit.

If you like r&b, and if you like mingling with the younger crowd, The Butter Factory is 1 of the clubs you should visit. It gets quite packed so you might have to queue. Personally not 1 of the clubs I enjoy much in Singapore, but it's just because it's not my cup of tea. They have still done pretty well and garnered quite a following.

The line outside Butter Factory was about 15 deep when I rocked up about 10pm. There are 2 rooms (House music and Hip Hop). You can either pay to go into the House Room or into Both so there are 2 lines to accomodate this.
Once inside, the hip hop room had a few people although like most clubs, people don't start dancing till at least about midnight. The music was a mix of old and new hip hop and if there is ever a place for men to perve at women dancing this is it. There were so many guys eyeballing the women with no shame whatsoever (yes, ok I may have been one of them too).
The house room had more of an electronica/trance feel to it and was very glowy as most raves are.
2 drinks are included in the cover charge but I imagine drinks to be be quite expensive.
If you're looking for good hip hop music, butter factory is definately the place to be in Singapore, it has a skater vibe which is slightly casual and less pretentious than other places.
