This Bohemian gem in Kampong Glam is comfortable and easy going, with funky light fixtures, slouchy couches, and intimate clusters of purposely mismatched tables and chairs both indoors and out. There is often live music, mainly jazz, funk, and blues, and a DJ spins most nights. There are also poetry readings and other cultural events. For the after-drinks munchies, Blu Jaz has a menu with Western and Eastern favorites, from a chicken shwarma for S$13 to  fish and chips or satay for S$9 a plate. There are plenty of other cheap Malay places in the 'hood as well for a plate of delish murtabak (roti bread stuffed with cheese, lamb or egg).
