Off on the Road to Singapore

Traveling for work later this week to Singapore with a colleague. We both enjoy interesting bars. Any particularly odd sights to see? We have a couple mostly-open days to recover from the 12 hours in coach. What will impress two business travelers whose previous travel focuses around Northern Europe and the USA?

As noted in the question, we have a couple open days and could use some good recommendations for bars, so we don't end up drinking only at the hotel every night. Leanings would be more toward casual/less trendy/hole-in-the-wall/interesting theme kind of places, but can be convinced otherwise if there is some particularly interesting feature. We are both beer drinkers. So, no super trendy wine bars...but yes on the border-line hip bar with the revolutionary theme--even if it only serves beer in bottles and especially if it has some sort of Singapore twist to it.
As for off-the-wall sights, I have already found the Haw Par Villa
and the other items listed on Atlas Obscura
. And have seen the suggestions here
. Are any of those particularly recommended for well-worn business travelers with most of Europe and the USA under their belts?
For food, from what I have read, it looks very easy to find great food. Are there any particular experiences/types of food recommended?
