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.

Even is not the better place to eat. The view is amazing to have drinks and dinner. Is not a cheap place, so ask for the prices after u get into a restaurant. They close so late.

Spent a short while here early evening. With more one we would certainly have come back. It seemed a great place, not shiny and glossy but a little more real somehow. I would guess that you would come here if you lived in Singapore.

We first visited it while we were on the way from Raffles Place MRT to Merlion Park. The river itself was a bit boring but came lively at night with a lot of restaurants surrounded.

This is one of my favourite places to sit at night. The view is awesome. You can sit at one of the many bars along the Quay and just look at the fantastic view sitting by the Singapore River. Here you can see the fantastic Fullerton Hotel , the Singapore Wheel and Marina Bay Sands Hotel. Its a great place... More

Interesting mix of restaurants ,cafes and bars by the river and linked to Financial District and Fullerton Hotel . Good seafood restaurants but Clarke Quay has more variety of food and bars

This is the best area to have a couple of drinks and chill out. Street full of bars and pubs on one side and beautiful riverside view on the other. There are a few bars with good Live music as well. Definitely recommend going here at least once during your stay.

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.
