Clarke Quay is where the young and restless come to play in Singapore. It is packed with restaurants, bars and nightclubs and buzzes with revellers every night of the week. The area received a dramatic $80 million makeover between 2004 and 2006 which included the installation of a ‘climate control canopy’ – a natural air-conditioning system which channels air along its canopy and funnels it into the interior spaces to provide a cooler atmosphere.
If you’re hungry you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to restaurants here – stand outs include Ras for Indian cuisine, Coriander Leaf for Asian fusion and Bayang for Indonesian. Other popular haunts include China One for loud live music, the Pump Room for home brew beers, Le Noir for al-fresco cocktails and Attica to dance the night away til the small hours.
