Exploring the Singapore Quays

106 Reviews
It’s hard to believe when looking at Singapore’s modern skyline, but the city was once no more than a small fishing village along the river. In the city’s early days, life revolved around the river; today, that hasn’t changed. The three quays, Boat Quay, Robertson Quay and Clarke Quay, not serve as the hub of the city’s entertainment, dining and nightlife scene.

Robertson Quay
Originally, Roberston Quay was filled with warehouses, boatyards and industrial offices, but today, it’s home to a burgeoning performing arts community, along with a series of excellent bars and restaurants. Of the three quays, this is the most relaxed. Thanks to a significant Japanese expatriate population in the neighborhood, Robertson Quay offers some of Singapore’s best Japanese cuisine as well.

Clarke Quay
Clarke Quay, one of Singapore’s most historic neighborhoods, is today a hotbed of restaurants, bars and clubs housed in five blocks of repurposed warehouses and colonial shophouses. If you’re looking for variety, whether in food options or nightlife styles, you’ll find it here. In the same evening, you can dine on Singaporean chili crab at a floating restaurant, listen to live jazz tunes, sip on a craft beer and dance the night away.

Boat Quay
During Singapore’s heyday as a major maritime trade center, the commercial action centered on Boat Quay. Now the historic shophouses contain affordable seafood restaurants with great views of the Singapore skyline. Where tourists tend to be drawn to Clarke Quay, Boat Quay is a favorite among locals and Singapore expatriates.
