Expats may not be able to vote but they can join in the fun! Our friends at The Straits Times clued us into some bars getting into the political spirit — with spirits! The following bars and restaurants will be hosting “election themed” parties this week – (the only requirement you must meet: be sure to bring enough money!)

Admission: $30 (including two drinks). Free entry for Singaporeans before 11pm
At the f.Club Singapore nightclub at Clarke Quay, partygoers are invited to dress up on Thursday in blue, orange, red, white or yellow – colours commonly associated with political parties. The club will reward those it thinks are “well-dressed” with a bottle of vodka worth $298.
The club’s marketing and events manager, Ms Melanie Romilien, 30, says: “We pride ourselves on being relevant to our local customers. We’ve decided to go with a playful twist on the election theme.”
