One of the most exciting clubs in the Singapore nightlife scene is eschewing entry charges completely from this month onwards. Helmed by nightlife entrepreneurs Josh and Sarissa Schwartz, Bang Bang will be unveiling its brand new look and elimination of the cover charge this Friday (12 January).

Located at Pan Pacific Singapore, the club, which has been around since 2014, is most popularly known for its Wild Wednesdays and weekends with well-dressed revellers dancing to club bangers and mash-ups, white cages and go-go dancers pumping up the crowds.

Speaking with Yahoo Lifestyle Singapore, Sarissa said, “Josh and I feel that a cover charge for regular nights is an antiquated vision of clubbing and goes against our core values of creating a fun and seamless experience for our guests at all points in the night.”

Doing away with the cover charges is part of the club’s new concept and design. This includes a newly raised dance floor, interactive tables with pulsating lights, and UV-coated dance cages. There is also a new metallic destination-bar with a statement Bang Bang bottle vault that showcases customised hand-painted bottles, each bejewelled by a local artist.

Other new design features include a raised stage, mirrored ceilings and illusion infinity tables – some equipped with their very own CO2 gun, adding to the entertainment.

The new look was curated by the Schwartzes, who are also behind familiar hotspots such as Employees Only and late-night live lounge Lulu’s, and brought to life by design innovators EDG. Bang Bang is also introducing a new concept to Singapore nightlife by leading a co-clubbing movement – inviting smaller groups to achieve the VIP table experience.

This new social initiative connects clubbers together at shared tables, enabling them to enjoy table hosts, queue-jumping and bottle service as part of a combined group – bringing the sharing economy to the dance floor. This is all part of the co-founders’ vision to “bring ageless, unpretentious fun and new dimensions of nightlife”.
