A Brief Introduction To Clarke Quay In Singapore

Known as The Lion City, Singapore buzzes with excitement and comes to life when the sun goes down as each night is a celebration. It is most famous for its nightlife with parties, clubs and live concerts keeping the crowds moving from one venue to another in search of fun that never dies down. Dancers and partygoers love this beautiful city that is brightly lit up every night with different colored lights to welcome visitors and locals to its many bars, clubs, and restaurants. Here are more info from our team.

Clarke Quay is situated on the bay side on the Singapore River where the best clubs in Singapore like Attica, Zouk, and Canvas can be found. This riverside development of old refurbished warehouses, consisting mostly of bars and restaurants, is spread over five blocks of roughly 292,000 sq. ft. Most venues are clustered in Block C, bounded by Clarke St, Read St, and River Valley Rd. The one hundred-seater Butchers Club Burger from Hong Kong is in Block A as well as the premium Faigo Hotpot outlet from China.

Each exclusive venue is strongly themed and seems to have gone to great lengths to be branded differently from all the other establishments operating in Clarke Quay. This is where crowds can hop furiously from one themed bar to the next, all under one roof, without coming across one kooky little place with no theme.

UK visitors may liken it to the modern Croyden High Street back home, while Australians may find it feels a little like Singapore’s Bondi. Judging from the huge crowds that flock to Clarke Quay and Boat Quay on weekends, it is as popular if not more so. The overhead roof is a huge plastic construction that looks a bit like an enormous jellyfish, with massive fans and fountains along the way to keep the crowds cool while they are moving between venues.


One of the most popular clubs in Singapore that has also gained tremendous international recognition is Zouk at Clarke Quay. Zouk is world famous among young dancers who enjoy house music and consider it ‘the’ place to be. Every weekend Zouk is filled to capacity with young folks who follow different music styles and the club has established ‘sister’ discos that play different kinds of music genres.

Older folks enjoy going to Velvet Underground where they can listen and dance to garage and soul music. Many internationally famous DJs like Steve Aoki and David Guetta have performed at Zouk which adds to its irresistible attraction among disco dancers. On Wednesdays, Zouk offers free entry for women and is very popular among the young girls who like to let their hair down with their girlfriends. The club also has a Mambo Jambo night when they play the popular hits of the 70s, 80s, and 90s.

The Prive Clarke Quay is the 4th restaurant to be opened by the Prive Group with a 300-seater eatery that faces the center fountain in Clarke Quay and serves on-the-go food all day.

Clarke Quay is managed and owned by CapitaLand Mall Asia and according to the Center Manager, almost one million people come here every month to experience the food and entertainment offered by the best quality restaurants, clubs, and bars in Singapore.
