Mohamed Sultan – the name connotes royalty and religiosity. This district, however, is nothing of the sort, unless God really is a DJ. Mohamed Sultan today is filled with everything (legal) that feeds your desires. The area has an enticing nightlife and is the locus of Singapore 's clubbing scene. These clubs are submerged in a flurry of shop houses; they are caves of modern partying embedded within a traditional façade. As you enter, say hello to the gatekeepers of club worship – also known as the bouncers – and be prepared to have a religiously good time.
This district is named after Mohamed Sultan Road, which came into existence around 1898. The area was once a quiet residential district that contained no bars and pubs. The first one was opened in 1992. Thus, Mohamed Sultan's identity as a hotspot for nightlife is a relatively young one. Perhaps the only historical artifact left in Mohamed Sultan is the Hong San See temple, built in 1912.
