About Clarke Quay – Singapore

A refurbished riverside development of old warehouses which consists almost exclusively of bars and restaurants. A plastic jellyfish-looking roof has been built overhead, with fountains and huge fans in place to cool the customers moving between venues. Anyone studying branding should certainly visit, as it seems mandatory that each venue must be differently and strongly themed. Visitors from the UK might sense a similarity to a modern High Street at home, with Aussie visitors feeling that this could be Singapore’s Bondi.

Clarke Quay is a historical riverside quay in Singapore, located within the Singapore River Planning Area. The quay is situated upstream from the mouth of the Singapore River and Boat Quay. The bridge that links the banks is Read Bridge (originally Merchant Bridge) named after the well-known businessman W.H.M. Read. It was officially declared open by the Governor in April 1889. A lane is named after the wealthy Chinese pioneer and timber merchant Tan Tye; there is also Cannery Lane where pineapple canneries were located.

On one side of Clarke Quay is one of the earliest Agency houses, the Paterson Simons which built their godowns here in 1893. On the other side is the godown of the Towkay Tan Yoke Nee who built the classical Chinese house in Clemenceau Avenue,  for many years the headquarters of the Salvation Army.

Along the Singapore River next to the River View Hotel is the “Warehouse” (a godown converted to a disco).

In 2012, Clarke Quay received about one million visitors per month. Restaurants and eateries occupied about 60 percent of its space, while another 30 percent was leased to entertainment outlets with offices taking up the remaining 10 percent. That year, CapitaLand announced a new S$15.6 million extension to Clarke Quay, with a new frontage on River Valley Road and more than 15 new dining and entertainment options. The extension and renovations were completed in January 2013.
