This historical riverside quay is located upstream from Boat Quay and Singapore River. It is named after Andrew Clarke, the second governor of Singapore (1873- 1875). He played a big part in making Singapore the main port of Sungei Ujong, Selangor and Perak.
Currently, the restored warehouses here are the location of numerous restaurants and nightclubs. This quay is a delightful combination of traditional and modern. Old shop-houses provide the perfect backdrop to Clarke Quay where you can have a merry time savouring in the delights of Mediterranean, Italian, Chinese and local cuisine.
