To help you find the coolest kids party venue in Singapore (that doesn’t require a year’s worth of savings and planning), we’ve put together the ultimate list of children’s birthday party venues in Singapore, including cool restaurants that host kids’ parties too!

And for the home bodies out there, we’ve even included some at-home party options too. Let’s get this party started!

Things are changing daily, but we’re doing our best to keep up! Ans psst – some of these venues offer virtual parties too, and special Covid packages with utmost health and safety in mind!
THE COOLEST KIDS PARTY VENUES IN SINGAPORE
1. Climb Central
For an adrenalin-pumping party with a difference, scale to new heights up the rock climbing walls at Climb Central. It’s a unique and ideal party venue for the slightly older party child. Our gung-ho little lady went to a six year-old birthday party here and was high as a kite. You can join in the fun too as parties with kids under 13 require two adult volunteers (or if you’re afraid of heights just outsource to the professionals). Parents can watch on from the viewing platform in the air-conditioned mall, and head down to the party room after the fun is over for a slice of cake and a refreshing self-catered beverage.
Where: #B1-01 Kallang Wave Mall, 1 Stadium Place, Singapore 397628
Best for: Active kiddos that love climbing and clambering!

For some good,
clean muddy fun, go for a rip-roaring outdoor party at Centaurs Kids. For the first hour your kiddo crew will have a ball playing a game of their choice – like capture the flag, soccer or touch rugby. And then the REAL fun begins, when they dive into The Pit and navigate Singapore’s most fun, challenging dirty obstacle course. It’s suitable for little adventurers aged 6 – 13, with shower facilities on-site to clean up too. Afterwards, the kids can tuck into plenty of cake and food (bring your own for an outdoor picnic!) before heading home mud-free.

Gallop Stable will doll up its team for the occasion.

9. Forest Adventure
Kids aged seven years and above will love harnessing up and negotiating an obstacle course high among the treetops at epic Forest Adventure. Bear in mind (to avoid disappointed tears) that the various sections require kids to be 1.1m, 1.35m and 1.5m in height respectively. Once the kidlets are let loose on the course they’ll traverse wobbly logs, rope swings, rickety bridges and a couple of leaps of faith. We personally tried out the Forest Adventure experience so we can vouch it is super-fun! What did we love best? Zip lining over Bedok Reservoir at the end of it all! Our tip: bring scooters to save little legs a long walk from the car park.

What you need is our hit-list of child-friendly restaurants in Singapore that can host parties for kids that are not only delicious, but super fun too. We’re talking fun places that are quirky and think outside the box when it comes to entertaining a junior entourage. Read on, party people…
Yes, UK household name Pizza Express is on Singapore shores – dough balls and all. It offers some pretty fun hands-on kid’s cooking parties. Pizza-making parties run for two hours – during which time your little chefs will don a hat and apron and get messy with flour, dough and delicious ingredients (our pick is pepperoni with olives). A slice of cake and glass of juice will round out proceedings nicely.
Where: Various locations around Singapore
If you’re after a super-chilled kids party venue with bang-on mod-European nosh, then look no further than Kith Cafe. There’s good reason it’s hard to snag a seat with the family on a Sunday morning! The outdoor tables all offer a great spot for kids to treat as a base – while scooting, playing on the rocking horses and generally running off excess energy. You can tailor the party to suit your special birthday poppet, with the Kith peeps willing and able to organise balloons, magic shows, toys and goodies (or anything else their little heart desires – just ask!). Rough cost is a fab $20++ per head.
Where: Robertson Quay, Millenia Walk and Sentosa Cove
We’re happy to hit up Jamie’s Italian any time! It’s the place where wholesome kids’ nutrition, impeccable styling and service collide – all with a good dash of fun. Your kid and their crew will receive the VIP treatment as mini-pizza chefs – kicking off with a guided tour of the herb garden, followed by a stint on the giggle-inducing pasta extruder machine and a make-your-own rustic Italian pizza sesh. Junior diners then enjoy their spoils while being entertained with all the usual Jamie’s Italian extras like old-school viewmasters, stickers, crayons and colouring sheets. Feel free to bring your own birthday cake or else outsource the pressure to them on just three days’ notice. And the whole event is affordable (phew!) at only $45++per kid (minimum of 10).
Where: VivoCity and The Forum
Another café with rustic charm offering fabulous Birthday parties with a difference is cooking school Cravings. Aiming to provide a one-stop service, the lovely people at Cravings provide catering (from a super cheap $11 per person), event entertainment like face painting and magic show, and a dessert table that has to be seen to be believed. Rainbow paddle pop cheesecake anyone? (20 – 30 pax from $448). You won’t even need to fret about making party bags, they’ll sort this for you for just $6.90 per child. It’s perfect for the time-poor parent wanting a walk-in and walk-out experience that won’t break the bank. Easy!

The food is healthy and moreish, and perfect for a kids party where parents want to drop in for a bite to eat and a refreshing tipple. Once the air hits the on-site bouncy castle you’ll be free to sit back and enjoy the relaxing vibe.

We love the vintage whimsical styling of this place (indoor green grass and powder blue mini Eames rocking chairs – cute!). Check out the seemingly endless variations of part-ay packages available (and you can order from Ben & Jerry’s menu of cleverly named ice-creams). Unbelievable 3D party cakes too!
