All you need to know about Clarke Quay & Riverside
Clarke Quay brings in arguably the largest crowds on weekend evenings. Consisting of five restored warehouses, bars and restaurants now dominate the scene, perfect for bar-hopping under one plastic, jelly-looking roof. Visiting Clarke Quay on weekends, you’ll notice almost every inch of space along the riverside promenade taken up by the locals, expatriates, and tourists. The bars are packed with people looking for a fantastic night out with friends, and live music can occasionally be heard through the bustling crowds.
Riverside Point, a small shopping mall, is located on the opposite bank to the main Clarke Quay warehouses. A large seafood restaurant, Jumbo, offers another dining option to all the bars. Brewerkz the microbrewery famous for superbly brewed on-site beers is next door. Read Bridge connects the two banks, with makeshift stalls set up during festivals like Chinese New Year choosing to locate here. The center of the bridge offers you a great photo opportunity, though the huge crowds can be a put-off.
Every first Thursday night from 7.30pm till 10pm, be treated to live music from the best jazz bands at Central Square while you are dining and enjoying your night out.
