Boat key is on the Singapore River and is a hive of activity with many bars and restaurants as well as river boat trips. It is very popular and very busy. As a result most bars and restaurants charge a premium for the location.

If you come Singapore never forget to visit this neighbourhood; Boat Quay Riverside. This area, in my opinion, was the great place to spend time at the evening. Here, you can walking around, eating, drinking, or just sitting and enjoying the atmosphere. Have sit at the outdoor of a bar, order a glass of cold beer, and enjoy the situation.... More

Take metro to Raffles Place station to go to Boat Quay. Part of the promenade is dotted with bars and restaurants with terrific view of the Asian Civilisations Museum and other historical buildings on the opposite side of the river, both day and night.

I love this place. eating, drinking, walking or just sitting and enjoying the view, any one (or all!) of them are them are a great way to spend an evening. there's a nice variety of restaurants, fresh seafood, Chinese, American/British ex-pat bars, Indian, etc. Sometimes the restaurant workers are a little aggressive about trying to invite you in, but it's...

Boat Quay is nice especially at night but really is a poor relation of Clarke Quay. If you don't want the louder noise etc of Clarke this is a good spot.

Great deals here at restaurant and bars. Where else in Singapore can you buy a Jug of beer for S$9++ Many choices of different meal types and most is good food. That having been said be careful these places are for tourists so the food IS EXPENSIVE and the beer pricing the draw

This is a splendid place for a beer after a hard day's work. You can find many good restaurants and bars along the side of Singapore river. You can also find good spots for photos to keep your memories of this place now that you had visited this spot.

Staying in The Quays

Neighborhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
