    Boat Quay & Clarke Quay: Clark Quay.

    by cachaseiro Written Nov 12, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clark Quay is the former trading harbour of Singapore that has today become a real nightlife mecca with lot's of bars, restaurants, cafes and clubs.
    The place can be very lively at night especially during weekends and it's a nice place to go as long as you are ready for prices that are not very cheap.
    It's located in the center of Singapore about 1 kilometer from Raffles Hotel.
    Most buildings there are still old fashioned lowrise buildings and that gives it a cosy charm.
    One other good thing is that if one place is not what you expected it to be then you can just walk next door to see if that is better as you have dozens of places in Clark Quay that are alive at night.

    Boat Quay & Clarke Quay: Romantic lights at night

    by rohany Written Oct 3, 2010

    The Quays in this area where the old culture was first established is house with fine dining and outdoor restaurants with view to the river and other historical places. The place has got a beautiful view and it is packed with people who come to good food and nice talks. It is a perfect place to dine with your special someone and close to place where you can dance the night away or just watch people and talk the night away.

    There are plenty of resto bars, restaurants indoor and outdoor in the area. You will never have hard time finding the best spots since the place itself will be calling your attention.

    Dress Code: Some place asks to dress appropriately. Best to be casual and look smart.

    Clarke Quay: One Night At Clarke Quay

    by pres_16 Updated Jan 13, 2008

    Not knowing much what to see here in Clarke Quay, we just head on here after our Sentosa discovery. As we got in here early evening, I was stunned to see the vibrant, beuatifully lit up Clarke Quay. I sat by the riverside watching the boats come and go by, feeling the touch of the cool breeze just like relaxing my tired body. After about one hour of chilling out by the river, we started walking up again, took pictures, passed by the bridge and head on walking by the restaurants, cafes and alfresco bars at the other side of the river.

    Boat Quay, Clark Quay, Riverside Walk: Along the SIngapore River

    by SLLiew Written Oct 14, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Along the Singapore River, the old godowns carrying goods from the Keppel Harbor and unloading here, have all been converted to vibrant riverside walks teeming with restauratns and entertainment night outlets.

    It is popular with locals and expatriates as well tourists alike. It is a bit calming and cooling along the river and to see lighted boat cruises going up and down the river.

    Great place to chill out after dark. During the day, it is hot.

    Boat Quay & Clarke Quay: Touristy - but chic!

    by Ines28 Written Aug 26, 2007

    Some years ago, Clarke Quay was a nice spot for evening entertainment and rustic eating out - hawker stalls selling satay, mixed vegetables and fried rice. This is all gone, and I admit I was a bit disappointed, but what they made of it is still great!
    Extremely modern and stylish, the old houses have been restorated and there is an uncountable number of international restaurants and bars to hang out. When we were there, some special week-end entertainment took place with acrobatic shows, dancing etc. which was fantastic.
    Though of course all the tourists go there it is a very nice place and should not be missed!

    Clarke Quay: Clarke Quay is underrated!

    by redhotwax Updated Apr 20, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most tourists tend to stroll towards Boat Quay when alighting a the Clarke Quay MRT station. But instead of turning right, turn left towards the other side of the Singapore River, where you find Clarke Quay. A little spacier than Boat Quay, Clarke Quay boasts some fine restaurants and bars as well. If you want to combine the two Quays, I suggest having dinner at Clarke Quay, and head to Boat Quay for the bars!

    Clarke Quay does have a nice hawker style food court in the Riverside promenade. Singapore Satay and Chicken Rice while having a late night beer in the open air is a great combination!

    Dress Code: Come as you are.

    Boat Quay & Clarke Quay: Amazing clark quay

    by yatingchen Updated Feb 27, 2007

    Taking boat from clark quay on Singapore river is a thing what a tourist must do. You see amazing landscape of Singapore city.

    Like Chijmes square Clark quay also has many stylish bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants, but they are on various streets and covered by big mushroom-formed unbrellas. Its river scene makes it unique romantic.

    Dress Code: Please dress up and enjoy the night with your belove one.

    Clarke Quay: Watch the lights change!

    by litekimchi Written Aug 17, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the things I look forward to every night returning to my hotel is to take time to briefly pause in the middle of Coleman Bridge to either stare at the Clarke Quay's "umbrella" lights change or watch the people passing by. It's a great place to take pictures, too.

    Try it. It's for free!

    Dress Code: If you're going to bars right after, dress to kill. Otherwise, any attire will do.

    Clark Quay: Clark Quay

    Clark Quay has revamped itself and after the facelift it is now a popular night spots where you may wine and dine. It is now more popular than Boat Quay.

    You may dine by the riverside with many restaurants and pubs to choose from.
    Not forgeting the famous reverse bungy where many passerby will just stand there to hear the screams of those taking the challenge.

    I would suggest that you take a bump boat ride to the Merlion/Esplanade after your meal.

    Boat Quay & Clarke Quay: Bumboat Ride

    by tophat30 Written Jun 10, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're staying in Singapore even for only one night make sure you don't miss the opportunity to take a bumboat ride down from clark quay to the Merlion and back. ( about 30 Mins). The scenes you see from the land cannot even be compared to what you see from down the 'river'. And the elaborate work of the different bridges can only be admired from the bumboat.
