Following the continued success of retro arcade bar and discotheque, NINETEEN80, A Phat Cat Collective is excited to announce the launch of its second bar and club concept, Pinball Wizard.

The new space draws inspiration from the vintage glory days of the popular arcade machine, the pinball, with imaginative drinks and music of the 90s mixed with 00s and current hits.

Pinball Wizard

Located in the basement of Sim Lim Square, Pinball Wizard breathes fresh life into the iconic building, in which after opening in the late 80s, has become known as the largest hub for gadgets and tech in Singapore.

Pinball Wizard is the first concept bar to open in Sim Lim Square, following the rejuvenation of offerings within the IT mall with hip cafes and retail spaces. Combining timeless pinball games with a great entertainment line-up and bar programme, Pinball Wizard will open throughout the evening before transitioning into club mode at night.

Shooters are the name of the game at Pinball Wizard, and there are certainly some tricks up its sleeve. Be enchanted by the Glitter Shooters (S$80 nett for ten shots), with two shimmering magic potions available: Crouching Tiger, with a mesmerising mix of tequila, lychee liqueur and chrysanthemum tea; and Peanut Butter & Jelly, a sparkly swirl of black raspberry liqueur, hazelnut liqueur, vodka and cranberry juice.

The equally quirky Signature Shooters (S$15 nett each) have the Mango Mojo containing a hidden surprise waiting at the bottom, while the Free Willy is visually stunning with a plasma jellyfish effect in a shooter.

Describing their latest venture, Joshua Pillai, Managing Director of A Phat Cat Collective says, “Sim Lim Square is an unsuspecting yet exciting choice for our newest concept. Fueled by the offbeat charm of Sim Lim Square, we wanted to create a hidden intimate space that is unexpected but stylish with lots of character.”

Yafith A. Hamid, A Phat Cat Collective’s Operations Director, adds, “Pinballs have become a rare find in Singapore, and we are thrilled to introduce a bar and club that puts a spotlight on it. We had requests for pinballs in NINETEEN80, and we thought that it was something that we could build an entire theme around. It is simple and accessible for anyone to play with just two buttons, but it’s a game that comes alive and has inspired a massive culture surrounding it.”

The resident DJs pump out a unique mix of 90s to current hits ranging from Pop, Rock, Hip Hop, R&B and Alternative and Dance. Weekly themed nights pay tribute to cherished genres of the 90s’ heydays. Wednesdays celebrate rock and alternative nights with Rock n’ Rolla, and on Thursday ladies’ nights, Tilt, Hip Hop veterans Ollie’des and YA5TH churn out tunes from the golden ages of Hip Hop.

Pinball Wizard

As Singapore’s only dedicated pinball bar, Pinball Wizard, which is also the name of the classic rock anthem by British rock band, The Who, is an endearing moniker for pinball enthusiasts. Playful creativity abounds in this imaginarium of the past and present, through an out-of-the- box and groovy perspective on music, games, design, innovation and popular culture.

Pinball Wizard’s bar programme is ingenious, cheeky and engaging, with original cocktail creations split into two categories - Signature Cocktails and Cocktail Remixes (all S$18 nett). The Signature Cocktails have an element of surprise, from the psychedelic colour-changing Flower Power that uses the blue hue of butterfly pea-infused gin to interact with the elderflower, apple, ginger and lemongrass concoction, to the Berry Poppins with strawberry caviar that literally bursts with flavour to transform the palate. Meanwhile, the Cocktail Remixes feature fun renditions of well-loved classic cocktails. The Salty White Russian is a salted caramel version of a White Russian with a douse of coffee and cacao spiced rum, while the Negroni Spritzer adds a light and bubbly twist to the otherwise bold and serious aperitif. The Banana Julius Flip, an elevated and adult departure from an Orange Julius, is a vodka-based cocktail with roasted and full-bodied notes from crème de banana, maple syrup and buttermilk. https://www.expatchoice.asia/things-do/new-retro-bar-club-pinball-wizard-opens-sim-lim-square
