Good pubs around the river area , closer to metro stations and office spaces , at night the place just lights up with good offers on drinks and quick service , a long stretch of pubs and restaurants , sea foods are available at a discounted price and u can bargain too

Cute area walking distance on the river from Robertson and Clarke quays
Great place for a drink on the way back from a walk to city museum or art gallery
Older and more historic feel to the other quays

Nice area to visit even if only for a short period. It's a mix of commercial properties, many fine restaurants and bars, hotels, etc and is a historical area on the South Bank of the river stretching from the shophouses at UOB Centre to Elgin Bridge. The Quay dates to 1842 when it was built to accommodate the shipping trade. Nice views from the river while on the cruise.

Every time I come to Singapore, I always come to this place. There are many restaurants for tourists and behind there are many tall buildings of financial institutions. Boat Quay is the place where the ancient and the modern Singapore meet.

Great options for supper and drinks. Outstanding place to people watch. Also, a good place to start and venture to the other ‘quays’

Loved this place very much, many bars and clubs around here. Better plan in the evening after sunset.

A bustling “strip” of bars & restaurants in the heart of Singapore on the edge of the river!
Great Asian restaurants, good themed bars, lots of people & a great atmosphere!
A must to visit this place when in Singapore, but note liquor is very expensive, plan for Happy Hour.
So many restaurants to choose from, we enjoyed an Indian restaurant on the 5th floor with superb views across the city.

It is nice to sit by the river over an evening drink. The spruikers work hard to attract you to their patch. But the food is nothing special and the prices are quite high. You can do better.

If you visit Boat Quay for what it is, a riverside drinking & dining precinct primarily of the western tourist market, then you probably won’t be too disappointed. But it’s nothing more than this.

The location is stunning and on a nice balmy night (which is almost every night) it is nice to walk along the river and see the brightly painted buildings and their bright LED flashing signs. But venture just a little further down the road, to one of the more local street food venues and you will be richly rewarded. By better food at significantly lower prices.

Not as crass as Clarke Quay, but no that far off.
