This location is very close to the business district and there are a lot of restaurants, bars, and gentlemen clubs in this area. Tons of outdoor sitting. Street is filled with people, and music. Great variety of restaurants to choose from. It is a must see location.

Try this place on a Friday night (NO KIDS - just you and your partner) and you will have a night to remember and take back to your grave.The choice of parties and pubs and restaurants are simple amazing. You have to be there to soak in the spirit.

Restaurants line both sides of the quay, which are reached by a bridge and /or underpass. Be careful when selecting where you eat. We ended up in a fairly robust, laid back seafood outdoor place and spent £130 on crab, prawns and two beers, I found the menu slightly misleading. Food was good, but not that good.

Plenty of choice here, whether you want Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, Malay it's all here. Situated across the bridge from Clarke quay you cannot go wrong as the choice is so vast. Only down side as with all of Singapore, it's not cheap.....

Boat Quay used to be Singapore most vibrant shophouses area in the Singapore Port, until the Government decided to "clean" it. It now hosts hundreds of very expansive restaurants, catering mainly to tourists, sometimes with poor service. It makes up for a nice walk and people watching at night.
