A NIGHT OUT IN CLARKE QUAY

Further up the Singapore River from Marina Bay and Boat Quay is another one-of-a-kind destination with a little more of a party vibe. Clarke Quay, named after Singapore’s second Governor Andrew Clarke, is a dining and party destination which has housed some of the city’s most-loved nightlife institutions. Whether you’re looking for adrenaline, great food, live music, or clubbing, this vibrant slice of life along the river can offer all of it. 

 

Clarke Quay River

 

Clarke Quay wasn’t always fun and games, though. As you walk through the colourful streets, remember that these were commercial and residential quarters in the 1800s and early 1900s. The ground floors of the shophouses usually contained offices, and the top floors would be crowded living spaces for coolies. Small river boats known as tongkangs would transport goods from the large ships in the harbour to be stored in Clarke Quay's godowns and granaries. It was a space of promise, of profits for business owners, and better lives for labourers from around Asia. But there was entertainment too: live Chinese opera performances and other street entertainment, that livened up the place at night. 

 

Clarke Quay Night

 

Today, Clarke Quay offers entertainment of a different variety, but just as dynamic and exciting. Find bars with live entertainment - from blues to rock bands to open mics on Sunday nights.

Speaking of adventure, adrenaline junkies may want to head over to the G-Max Reverse Bungy and GX-5 Extreme Swing, where you’ll be propelled into the air or dropped from a height of 50 metres, experiencing high speeds and G-force in a safe setting with highly-trained staff.

If less strenuous activities are more your thing, explore the many dining options on the ground – with colourful sitting areas, outdoor dining, and street stalls scattered all over Clarke Quay and even on the river. 

Keeping your feet on the ground can also be pretty exciting in Clarke Quay. Sip champagne in a sophisticated setting at the waterfront bars, where the view of the river is matched only by the view of the beautiful people inside. If you feel like partying, dance the night away at one of the many clubs, where you might just catch a world-renowned DJ in action. 

 

 

There’s no such thing as a dull night in Clarke Quay, especially if you’re surrounded by great company. A night out in this part of town could become one of the most memorable of your life, so make it count!
