What
Clarke Quay is the premier nightlife hub in Singapore. As soon as the sun sets, Clarke Quay transforms into a lively and vibrant night spot.

This historical riverfront district was named after Singapore’s 2nd Governor, Sir Andrew Clarke. The quay was home to warehouses that stored commercial goods transported from the nearby Boat Quay.

Today, the old warehouses have been converted into blocks of bars and restaurants that attract partygoers to this side of Singapore.

Why
Clarke Quay’s riverfront location makes it a perfect spot to hang out and unwind after a day touring Singapore. The cool breeze from the river lends fresh air to the crowded night scene.

Everyone is guaranteed to have a good time at Clarke Quay with its varied choices of trendy dance clubs, live music bars, and beer pubs.

Break a sweat on the dance floor, chat with bartenders at the bar counters, or go al fresco and enjoy your drink by the river beneath the moon and stars.

Best bars in Clarke Quay
Chupitos Shots Bar is a favorite starting point for a quick shot before heading to other bars. Select one or two from the dizzying 130 shots that range from the mild to the life-threatening!

If you have the talent or the guts, you can jam with the bands at Crazy Elephant. This casual blues and rock ‘n’ roll bar is the favorite hangout of live music fans.

Dance the night away at Attica! There’s plenty of room at this waterfront club with two dance floors that can fit up to 500 people. If you’re not into dancing, you can just relax and chill out with your cocktail of choice at the club’s bar on the river.
