Clarke Quay is a bright and exciting lifestyle precinct along the Singapore River. Combining dining, nightlife, shopping and adventure activities, you can easily spend a day exploring the historic site. Once a fishing village, Clarke Quay is now a mixture of the old and the new, embracing both in its offerings to tourists.
Clarke Quay boasts some of Singapore’s most popular nightspots, including nightclubs, bars and lounges. At night the colourful restored warehouse design lights up the river and fills the area with many different tunes. If you like live music and jazz, you’ll enjoy the ‘Crazy Elephant’ live music venue, which is iconic for bringing locals and tourists together. ‘Fenix Room’ is dedicated to champagne lovers and houses special champagne cocktails.
Directly above the Clarke Quay train station is ‘The Central’, a five-storey development showcasing a predominantly Japanese theme. Over 150 stores, food and beverage outlets take advantage of the waterfront views. Independent fashion boutiques and home wares also have a Japanese feel and are a refreshing treat once all the designer brand outlets have been exhausted.
Waterfront and Alfresco Dining
Tourists flock to the many riverfront restaurants and bars, particularly by night. The bright lights and waterfront atmosphere are a major drawcard, and despite commercialisation the fishing village feel is still a strong and unique element to the area. With almost a European feel, the dining options include seafood, casual cafes and eateries (and even the commercial Hooters restaurant). Twenty four outlets offer $15 lunch options for all different tastes during the day.
Various riverside cruises and tours are on offer through Clarke Quay, including tours of the broader Singapore Rivers area - Clarke Quay, Boat Quay and and Marina Bay. The closer you get to the water the more beautiful this area becomes. Thrill-seekers can enjoy more than just the beautiful river backdrop and immerse all their senses in the G-Max Bungy and G-X5 Extreme Swing.
