Cow & Coolies Pub, 30 Mosque St,+65 6221 1239. 5 PM-1 AM Mon - Thurs; 5PM - 2AM Fri and Sat. One of the very few drinking holes in the area that's neither posh yuppie hangout nor dodgy hostess lounge, this low-key pub draws an eclectic crowd of both gay and straight locals and backpackers, especially those hankering to sing a song or two on the heavily-used karaoke machine. The pub also has basic backpacker accommodation upstairs, from $25/night. $10 for a beer, $20 for a jug of Tiger beer.
