Refreshing new look and concept for popular nightclub.

Most clubbers will be familiar with the concept of admission fees, but Bang Bang has done away with that. With the unveiling of its new look in January, the 3.5-year-old nightclub at Pan Pacific Hotel has decided to drop cover charges.

Accompanying this bold move is a vibrant, sprucedup space that is the perfect backdrop for all the Instagram moments revellers desire to capture.

The interiors are a real doozy, bathed in groovy shades of magenta and wine, with mirrored ceilings and cool fittings like the UV-coated diamond dance cages and raised dancefloor.

Asked about the revamp, the co-founders of SJS Group – who also brought us bars Lulu’s Lounge and Employees Only – Joshua and Sarissa Schwartz said: “We believe strongly in reinvesting the business and that, after three years, it was a good time for a refresh.”

They roped in Bernard Johnson of EDG to spearhead the transformation, who aimed to make Bang Bang a versatile space that welcomes all partygoers.

The neon lights and raised stage will electrify those life-of-the-party types, but there are also cosy banquette seats for chill partygoers who just want to soak in the atmosphere.

Everything’s been taken care of – the cover charge, the space, and especially the music – so all that’s left to do is let down your hair, and start the night with a bang.

Check out Bang Bang at Pan Pacific Hotel, 7 Raffles Boulevard.
