Men are allowed to come, but in this case, let's just say the ladies get preferrential treatment at these drinking holes.
Recently announcing the launch of women's C.O.M.M.U.N.I.T.Y that will be held every Wednesday night, Potato Head Singapore brings the empowering concept to life with soulful '90s beats belted out by icons like Janet Jackson and Missy Elliot, as well as remixes spun by residential female DJs. Be pampered with free flow Zardetto Prosecco and if you are looking for something fancier, try their new Hendricks Gin cocktails — Mad Hatter & Friends and Ti Cup.
