When we first visited Singapore 25 years ago Boat Quay was the most popular and crowded nightspot on the river as Clarke Quay was only in its infancy. Now it appears that Boat Quay's popularity has dwindled, as Clarke Quay a little further up the river has overtaken its neighbour in terms of visitor numbers and variety of bars and... More

Lots of pubs and restaurant. If you don't mind the price, this is the place to bring out of town guests. I was here the morning of the Suprbowl and lots of pubs have big screen inside and outside even though it was 7.30 am. I come here at least once a week in the morning, lots of joggers, people...

These restaurants were quite expensive and you get accosted by the touts offering all sorts of deals. Were after traditional chilli crab and didn't actually see any so skipped this.

The dock boasts nice views, but all the restaurants look too touristy, with touts etc and pricey for what they offer. Better eat elsewhere.

Its a beautiful area and well worth visiting. There are many restaurants in the area and a very scenic walk around the Quay.

Similar to Clarke Quay but laid out in one line along the river so seems a bit confronting with so many venues chasing you for business. Plenty of choice for food & bars but looked a little over priced for what was on offer. If you walk from Clarke to Marina Bay you'll pass through Boat Quay.

We took the Singapore River tour and passed by Boat Quay. We walked back after the boat tour to see it up close. I was a little disappointed as it was mostly restaurants catering to tourists. Then again it's Singapore so maybe this should not be unexpected. But if you're looking to have a night out drinking and eating in... More
