Robertson Quay

Considerably quieter than Clarke and Boat Quay, Robertson Quay has recently been rejuvenated and now attracts expatriates and locals with numerous Western and Asian restaurants, together with the odd pub.

Chijmes

Located within Singapore’s downtown core, this Gothic-style chapel and its grounds have been converted into a hub for nightspots and chic restaurants. You’ll find all sorts of cuisines here, including Japanese, Chinese, American, Spanish, Italian etc.

Dempsey Hill

Amidst the lush greenery, Dempsey Hill was once a British army barracks back in the 1950s. Restaurants, bars and gourmet groceries populate this area.

Club Street & Far East Square

Well-conserved shophouses line club street, populated with galleries, bars and cafes. Catering more to the yuppie and business executive crowd, this nightlife area is a notch more expensive than other districts.
