6 Late-Night Diners

Think late night eats are all greasy, grimy, neon-lit free-for-alls with the questionable clientele to match? Not so!

Whether you’re craving a nocturnal nibble or, ahem, disembarking the tipsy train, these decidedly civilised after-dark eateries are your starvation salvation.

2am: dessertbar, Singapore

Sating sleepless sweet-tooths since 2007, Janice Wong delivers artfully constructed treats until, you guessed it, 2am. Her sultry, low-lit charcoal boîte backdrops a sensational selection of spoils including a diet-derailing Earl Grey mousse topped with cacao liqueur, whisky vanilla ice cream, and blackcurrant and white-choc Cassis Plum. Plus each pud comes paired with a wine to match.

21A Lorong Liput, Holland Village. +65 6291 9727.

Belleville, Melbourne

While ending the night with a kebab is an Aussie right of passage, for something a little more sophisticated beeline to this shab-chic, Latin-tinged funkster shuttered behind the heritage-listed facade of the old Globe Hotel. On weekends Belleville kicks on till 1am with a pitch-perfect, post-tipple menu of tasty global bites spanning kimchi quesadillas, rotisserie chook, lobster mac n’ cheese croquettes, and the mother of all moreish carb-fests: poutine. Now if that don’t stop the hangover…

Globe Alley, CBD. +61 3 9663 4041.

Palmer & Co, Sydney

Thankfully, Sydney’s heavy-handed lockout laws haven’t yet prohibited all the late-night revelry at this sepia-tinged, knees-up bunker in the CBD. Although the vintage 20s imbiber may be better known for its rakish barmen, flapper gals and rum runners, you’ll also find a hearty German-American menu of meatballs, pastrami, pretzels and hotdogs available until 3am. Wunderbar!

Abercrombie Ln, City. +61 2 9240 3172.

Sujinho, São Paulo

In this round-the-clock city there’s a plethora of sup spots for that end-of-eve bite, but when seeking something more substantial, teeter into one of two side-by-side antique bistros dishing up juicy T-bones, polenta fries and beans. You won’t find much in the way of design, but who cares about furny when there’s filet mignon until 5am? 

Rua da Consolação, 2063, Consolação. +55 11 3231 5207.

La Latina, Miami

If you came to Miami in search of a Latin lover, stopping looking – we’ve found him for you… A meaty, gooey cheese-stuffed Venezuelan arepas, that is. Snuggled in the design district, vibrant cantina Latina rocks into the wee hours with brightly coloured wall murals, classic cocktails and heart-stopping deep-fried carby goodness. It’s a match made in Midtown. 

3509 NE 2nd Ave, Midtown. 305 571 9655.

Duck & Waffle, London

This sky-high 24-hour supper is London’s late-night go-to, with a stellar open-kitchen serving comfort eats and Champagne tipples to pair. Not only can you find a belt-busting array of waffles, Colombian eggs and sloppy Joes, but its prime posi affords killer city vistas over the sparkly cityscape. Snag a window perch for two.

40/F, Heron Tower, 110 Bishopsgate, EC2. +44 20 3640 7310.
