What we say: 4 stars

Going strong since 1990, the Substation is Singapore's one and only alternative arts venue.

This is the place to catch local rock bands, quirky plays, independent film festivals and contemporary art exhibits. A full schedule is available online or just drop in to see what's going on — it has a very welcoming vibe.

Admission is always affordable and many events are free.

The Substation also offers courses and workshops for aspiring writers, photographers, filmmakers and other artists.
