The Pump Station 1965 Bar and Bistro is a lovely place to chill with friends or family on any day of the week. Located in Punggol East Container Park it is open every night and has an extensive drinks menu as well as a wide selection of Western and Asian dishes and bar bites. Go before 8pm and you can catch their daily happy hour food and drink deals as well as to nab the best table on a Saturday and Sunday night to catch their live entertainment.
On a recent visit on a Saturday night, we got there at around 6.30pm just in time for their current 30% off all food promotion. I ordered the Chicken Teriyaki Don ($14.90++) and my friends ordered the Chicken Carbonara and the Unagi Don which are two of Pump Station 1965’s recommended dishes. They were having a promotion for their beer tower at the time which was $54++ for a 3 litre tower of Asahi Super Dry White draft beer so we decided to get this.
The beer tower which was generously filled to just over 3 litres has a compartment in the centre that is filled with ice so this helps to keep the beer cold so that you can take your time to drink it slowly. If you’d rather drink fresh beer straight from the tap though I’d recommend getting their happy hour offer of 3 pints for $28++ and you can choose between Asahi Super Dry White, Asahi Super Dry Black and Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc. Their bottles of North Coast Steller IPA are also very nice.
The food was not bad, my Chicken Teriyaki Don was Japanese comfort food at it’s best. The sweet and tender chicken, along with the half poached egg and Japanese rice with a bit of heat from the kimchi, made a satisfying meal.
My friends also enjoyed their Chicken Carbonara and Unagi Don.
The live singers that night were a couple called Anchorblanc, they sang well together and the guy’s voice was particularly good. They started at around 8.30pm and sang a mixture of Mandarin and English songs as well as taking requests from the audience.
Overall we had a great evening at Pump Station 1965 and ended up staying there for nearly 5 hours! It’s a really relaxed place just next to the river and although all the seating is outside it’s very breezy in the area and not hot at all. They also have seating upstairs just above their stage so you can sip a glass of wine whilst gazing at the stars. Service was very friendly and informative and I’m sure we will be back there again soon! They’re currently taking reservations on Eatigo too so you can save up to 50% on all food!
