Best Places in Clarke Quay?

Post by Raul_Mel » Mon, 04 Apr 2011 3:08 pm

Hi there... Just arrived in Singapore. I'm from Jakarta Indonesia and I've heard a lot about Clarke Quay - Mostly from friends who visited Singapore a couple of years back. I heard they have eateries as well as clubs to party.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Depends on the music u prefer and the crowd. A very expat crowd is available at Attica or Le Noir. For food, if u're from Indo u might like Indochine. OctoTapas is good for Mexican and for a live band I tink The Pump Room is most popular in that area =)

They're all the same, Clarke Quay = the most boring, soulless tourist trap in Singapore

How do you feel about Holland Village?
J.A.N. Just Another Noobie. Hoping to make some friends and branch out from the regular 9 to 5 crowd at work. Cheers!

Pretty similar, although less of a tourist trap and at least I can eat my dinner without different music blasting at me from all directions.

Most nightlife in Singapore sucks, but I don't live here for that so it's ok

Best place to eat in Clarkey Quay for me would be Las Iguanas - always has good food and the margharitas they make there are top notch.

If you are looking for a good night out and don't mind the wild younger crowd (including myself haha) then I would check out Attica or Le Noir as the previous person suggested. Clarke Quay tends to be a tourist hotspot and there are much better places out there like the number of bars in Dempsey Rd. I recommend checking that out!

Ras for Indian food
Cafe Iguana for Mexican (nothing like real Mexican or TexMex but still very good)
Breworks for Beer and good bar food.

I can’t help you with night life. I’m usually on my way home well before anything starts happening.

@ BillyB - Why would the best part of clarke quay be the cab ride home :???:
@ Calmday - I just visited Ras yesterday for lunch. Good recommendation! The food was truly amazing. And it seems they had this promotion going on where a meal is only $15? Does anyone have information on this lunch thing?

Because it bores me and is full of p*ssed-up expats and travellers trying it on with anything that moves. I'd rather sh*t myself than go drinking in that tourist trap.

You could have a point there.

Although I went down to where the tanjong beach club is recently and it wasn't too bad there, not too many people around
