Its my favourite hangout! Not just because it is walking distance from my house. I feel that is the ideal place to chill at night, regardless whether it is weekdays or weekends.
Wala Wala has 2 level, level one is for guest that wanted to catch the sports action on the television. While level 2 is for the guest that wants a piece of live band performance.
Level 1 will usually be packed on a match day, if not it will be quite spacious. So if you are not into any sports action and does not like to squeeze like sardine. Please go on a Weekday!
Level 2 is packed almost 24/7. Well especially on thursday night, sometimes they stop guest from going up as early as 10pm. OH yes! every guest that go up got to at least purchase a drink, unless level 1 that you would be able to just free load and do not purchase anything.

I think is up to individend, if you do not like people, i guess it sure "NO" to you to even gets anywhere near holland V. Because it is like packed everywhere. Im definitely fine with crowds and sardined-like feeling!
Do not expect cheap drinks from here, as they do not even charge you for entry. 10 bucks and above for simple house drinks!
Seriously i had never try the food yet! But seeing from the menu, i think it is quite costly!
Monday to Thursday
4pm – 1am
Friday and PH Eves
4pm – 2am
3pm – 2am
Sunday and Public Holidays
3pm – 1am
You could also book table by calling them, but i had tried alot time. it is always fully booked!
I've been here a few times and never wrote about it!
The 2nd floor is a great place to just chill and enjoy the music but the drawback is that there aren't any seats and it's constantly crowded. Not to mention it's easier to get in if you just buy a bottle. Just to skip the long queue. Being there early means you get seats... and also get eyed by later patrons cos they really want your seat. My friend went in super early just to reserve seats for us. The drinks are ok, not too diluted and I guess reasonably priced for a bar. I enjoy the live music though I'm not really a fan of that genre.
The ground floor is more for the soccer crowd and those who want to eat. Though it's quieter here but not quite the place for conversation either as it's quite cramped with people mostly.
Great place to unwind. I love thursdays and saturdays for my favourite band 'The Unxpected' plays on that day.
If you're into live music, head up to the second level and be immersed by the great music. If you prefer watching soccer or just being able to have a chit chat with your friends, you're better off at the first floor.
Top fave snacks: Pizza, chicken wings and calamari are to die for.
Love the place! Do come early to get good seats infront of the band and to enjoy the happy hour!
Nice cool place to hang out with friends.
The place has a nice and wide collection of beer and wine. For me, it will be Hoegarden by default.
The food selection is also very large. My fav are the pizza and the chicken wings, big and juicy!
Most of the time, I will be sitting at level one unless I wanna to hear he band on the 2nd level. However to go up on weekends, you better start queuing early! The two bands that plays there are really good! Worth the wait though. Hee...
Second floor of Wala will need you to be extremely legal to get pass the 'bouncer'. I always get Vodka Extra Lime there, some fries.
Gotta looooove Shirlyn Tan and The Unexpected...the occasionally singing-while-drumming Brandon Khoo. I guess their music draws the crowds. I am only there when they are there.
On bad point is that the upper floors always gets over crowded and there weren't enough seats. They may wanna consider to get a bigger space ;)
Other than that, the atmosphere is rather cool, and best of all, the TOILET is clean heh.
Went for another time...
This time I had more bucks and ordered more...wings and fries, many baileys with milk, and this something new I tried called Appletiser and Grapetiser. It looks like white wine and red wine respectively...
The waiter there so so funny because Shirlyn thought I was drunk and the waiter told her I was drunk on the non-alcoholic Appletiser.
After when I left, the cheeky bartender treated me to another Tuborg...(though I hate Tuborg...)
Excellent place to chill out! Probably the liveliest place to be in Holland Village. The live band performance and the enthusiastic crowd is what make the place a favorite of mine.
Every Thursday and Saturday, The UnXpected will play here. Shirlyn's lovely voice, Brandon's drumming skills, and Rene's proficiency with his guitar never fails to amaze me.
Oh, their chicken wings and alcohols are awesome too!
