Canvas Singapore is offering a free flow and free entry promotion for ladies, and a one-for-one promotion for men.
Canvas Singapore added in its Instagram post that it will be taking measures and precautions to prevent any spread of the disease, including contact tracing, temperature-taking, and area sanitisation.
They also warned that the management will reject customers who fail to adhere to their safety measure protocol.
Cherry Discotheque Singapore shared its "farewell party" promotion, waiving the 10-person cap per VIP sofa, going at S$600 each.
The establishment added in their caption to call them for "sofa reservations and public backlash".

Clubs and all other entertainment venues will remain closed from March 26, 11:59pm, until April 30, or until further notice is given.
