Clarke Quay is a historical riverside quay in Singapore, located upstream from the mouth of the Singapore River and Boat Quay. It was the centre of commercial enterprise in the late 19th century. Today, the restored warehouse features a whole range of restaurants, wine bars, entertainment spots and retail shops.

  • History – It was named after Sir Andrew Clarke, Singapore's second Governor and Governor of the Straits Settlements from 1873 to 1875, who played a key role in positioning Singapore as the main port for the Malay states of Perak, Selangor and Sungei Ujong.
  • Today - With its recent revamp, Clarke Quay today is one of the biggest entertainment zones of Singapore. It is taking centrestage with many new operators with funky styles, darling attitudes and sexy concepts to transform it into a world-class destination. It has a vibrant nightlife and acclaimed acts and clubs including Crazy Horse cabaret from Paris, UK dance club Ministry of Soundand Ibiza’s Café del Mar have opened their doors here – spearheading a revolutionary consortium that will define Clarke Quay as the essential nightspot. Head to the waterfront now!
  • Cruise by the River - Another highlight of Clark Quay is the Singapore River Cruise. Our editor had a try at this and this is what she said “I found myself a comfortable corner to sit back and absorb the cool breeze, dazzling lights and sounds coming from the little restaurants and pubs established along the river. I can so understand why tourists enjoy this short cruise that usually last between 15 to 40 minutes, depending on the pick-up and drop-off location. It is a great recess from the hustle and bustle that seems to be onshore.” We strongly recommend that you try this ride.
