The weekend’s just around the corner, and chances are, deciding on where to go is becoming a stressful affair. While once the choice was very clear, now, you cannot help but wonder, “ Where did everybody go?”. You’re not alone, buddy. Singapore’s landscape has gone through more changes than Kumar and his entourage. What used to be in, is now either out or just plain defunct. However, with stiff competition and a more conscious party crowd, what’s in now, is not necessarily set in stone yet. Why? Because it’s not about one club, it’s about one place.

Clarke Quay is now the new Mohammed Sultan Road. The stretch that once paled in comparison to it’s across-the-bridge competitor, has gone through massive renovation works. Its historical value is still retained through its shophouses but, the facelift came with funky lighting and funkier décor for the Singapore River resident. With the many restaurants there, you’re up for an endless gastronomical feast. Indian, Chinese, Fusion and Spanish, are some of the options lined up for you along the riverside. Throw in one or two coffee houses and you will have your exercise regime cut out for you, walking up and down the quay.

Aside from food, Clarke Quay is also known to be the party place for the beautiful, the hip and the insomniacs. New offerings come in the form of Attica, a place famous for more models pouring out of its doors than a fashion show, and Ministry of Sound, the number one club from the UK. If all you want is just a chill out session, there are many pubs that make up the festival village, with happy-hour promotions. Go one step further and literally kick back at Bar Cocoon in Indochine, complete with daybeds, the new rage in town. Most clubs here are licensed to operate till way past the standard 3 a.m rule so, you have all night long to go up to that hottie in the corner or shake off that drunken feel!

Unfortunately, the Crazy Horse theatrical show which was once the talk of town here has ceased operations. No more full-fledged cabaret show for now for your men. But dont be too dissapointed, the Integrated resorts are coming to town.
