Being the foodie and night owls that we are, Singaporeans are always on the lookout for late-night restaurants and watering holes to have supper at and wind down from a long day’s work. The latest addition to the local nightlife scene is Overflow which has set up camp at Singapore Changi Airport. Grab a seat at this cosy hideout located at Hub & Spoke (just outside Terminal 2) for some drinks and delicious bites on your night out. There's no need to head out to the city centre for some night-vibe recharge!
Here are five things to look forward to when visiting Changi Airport’s first alfresco bar with live music.
1. Chill among the stars and greenery
Looking for a new place to chill at Changi Airport? This is it!
Situated away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, chill out and have a drink at Overflow as you enjoy the greenery and cool evening breeze of the outdoors. If you prefer to be near where the action is, indoor and bar counter seating are available too! The warm lighting and striking neon lights from the stage set the mood for hearty conversations and a good time. Whether you are seated inside or outside, you are sure to get a good view of the live music performance to complement your time there!
Have your furry friends join you too. Keep them comfortable by laying out their pet accessories like their water bowls or favourite toys.
Even if nightlife isn't your jam, dropping by in the afternoon and enjoying the natural sunlight amid beautiful Mother Nature is a serene experience you'll definitely enjoy.
2. A drink for every occasion
Overflow boasts a good selection of alcoholic drinks that caters to all tastes and preferences. Drinking with your mates? Go for a three-litre Asahi Beer Tower. Or, go for their list of fine wines and spirits if you’re looking for variety. For the adventurous, look forward to specialty creative cocktails and Overflow's very own collection of rare spirits that will be available from end-April.
Pro-tip: Head there earlier to enjoy happy hour prices from 3:00pm to 7:00pm with final bar orders by 11:30pm.
3. Bar bites and local delights
It’s almost impossible to drink without having some snacks on the side. Besides the usual Truffle Fries, go for elevated dishes like their Surf & Turf Potato Dippers where crispy potato wedges are served with a luxurious truffle crab meat dip! Not exciting enough? Consider trying some Swalty (sweet and salty) Pork Sliders. They are filled with rich Nutella sauce, sauteéd onions and banana slices – talk about having the best of both worlds. Plated beautifully, they're one reason why you must prepare your camera phones for Instagram clicks!
From April onwards, you’ll be spoilt for choice with over five flavours of handmade pizzas.
Here’s a plus point. If you’re craving local soul food, order a warm, comforting bowl of Laksa or other local delights such as Nasi Lemak from its neighbouring Hub & Spoke café! They also carry a variety of Western and Asian mains to satisfy any craving.
Local delights from Hub & Spoke: 8:00pm
Western mains from Hub & Spoke: 9:30pm
Bar bites from Overflow: 11:00pm
4. Enjoy live music by resident bands every day
A key highlight of Overflow is the live music performance by their house bands that rotate every night. The fantastic line-up each week makes it one of the best places to enjoy live music in Singapore.
Expect a wide selection of popular songs in Singapore that will make you want to sing your heart out! Here are some familiar bands and song genres to look forward to when you visit –
Pop Music Mondays
Performing top 40s English and Mandarin Pop is the trio group, D.A.S. The live band is fronted by singer-songwriter, Ariane Goh, together with Daniel on vocals and the keyboard, as well as Shawn on the drums. Sway to the tune of familiar songs every Monday at the bar.
From The 80s Tuesdays
You might have watched Little Band perform at other notable live music venues over the years. Awarded as one of the Best Live Bands in Singapore in 2022, you can catch this multilingual group performing hits from the 80s to current top 40s hits every Tuesday.
If you’re looking for a mix of music genres on a single night, head down on Wednesdays to catch REVERIE. Formed in 2003, they have proven to be versatile musicians who can take on acoustic unplugged pieces to headbanging rock songs. Expect jazz music, a hint of Latin, a surprise of classic tunes and more, all live!
Radio Hits Thursdays
Covering a wide range of top radio hits, Felicia x Long Jam Band have long been a crowd favourite in the live music scene thanks to their entertaining performances and ability to engage their audience. Led by vocalists Stanley Neo and Felicia Kusumo, with KC Lau on the electric guitar and Mark on the drums, you’ll quickly find yourself being drawn into their music and humour.
Modern Classical Fridays
Look forward to singer, Alex Chia, famously known for working closely with Paul Wong from hit band, Beyond. Together with local band Pandora, they perform hit Mandarin songs as well a variety of popular Cantonese and Hokkien songs that audiences of all ages will have a good time singing along to.
Formed as an offshoot from Mandopop band, Voices, MANIFEST has since gained a large following of their own within Singapore and internationally. The group consists of vocalist, Jeremy Teng from Mediacorp Campus Superstar 2009, percussionist, Geling on the drums, self-taught pianist turned music director, Marcus Sim on the keyboard, and Boo Ming Hui on the electric guitar.
