Bernie Goes To Town
82A/B Boat Quay
Ph: +65 6536 1097
I hear Bernie’s is running under different management. Even worse, Impy (of belly button and attitude fame) is dead!! Top top it all off, the band now plays at Voodoo Shack.
Located at the other end of Boat Quay from Harry’s, Above the Coffee Bean and near the taxi stand is Bernie’s. Bernie’s serves a range of canned beers (including Sam Adams, for those smitten by America), a large selection of liquor and American snacks. But what it is here for is not the drinks but the music – a live Jazz band to die for. The music was something I really enjoyed, They play the whole round, from slow sad blues numbers to perky, jivy jazz riffs. There’s plenty of jamming, and ever so often customers walk up and start playing or singing.
This is not a place for conversation, but there’s a pool table, and plenty, plenty of music till the wee hours of the night. Watch out for the free snack rounds ever so often. And there’s always Impy, serving drinks with her pierced bellybutton and plenty of attitude.
