Clarke Quay is an area with restaurants and bars where you can have dinner on the bay. All types of cuisines at one place. Many restaurants offer a happy hour before 8 pm and it gets crowded after that time.

I have been visiting Boat Quay every couple of months for the last 10 years. It was always a lovely place to sit for a drink or a meal at one of the many "different" outside areas of the bars/restaurants. Since my last visit in July the outside area has been "modernised" with every unit similar to the next. What... More

Road Quay is exciting and is amongst bar, restaurant, shop and trendy small bars, you will find night club also disembark or embark on the canal back to the bay. Lots of colours and a fun little boat trip. the bars do have all something different and are all fun but on the weekend it is very busy.

We stayed further up at Clarkes Quay but walked down through here every evening, personally we felt it had a better atmosphere than Clarkes, still busy with lots of restaurants and bars but much less busy and more relaxed. Next time we visit we would definitely spend more time down here, much better atmosphere.

Food and drinks here are a bit pricey, but hey, it is the tourist belt afterall. The food is fancy, service is abundant and you're paying for all this. Nice to chill on a table by the water on a cool night.

This section along the Singapore River is busy with restaurants and eateries that start springing to life towards the evening and night. Otherwise, it's a place for enjoying the atmosphere by the river and also for photos.

This boat trip will cost you S$25 per person / trip, I think for around 45 minutes. Best done in the night when all the lights of MBS, Downtown and Clarke Quay lit the night. There is a small TV inside the boat explains the area. But for me the best place to sit is at the back of the... More

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.
