With the bars and clubs at The Cannery pumping every night of the week, Clarke Quay is now the “it” precinct to party in. Even the seemingly endless rain of the last few weeks hasn’t deterred punters, with The Clinic, Kandi Bar, and other hot new places like a Scottish pub Highlander and microbrewery The Pump Room, packing them in. Relative old-timers Attica and MoS and enjoying this wave of popularity too.
Adding to the vibe is the live music played in the center of the new development. With people spilling out of various bars, club and restaurants, this is a heaving, happening space to catch some tunes or just catch up with your mates. Those who prefer to chill out over a nice meal and a glass of wine need not fret either. Clarke Quay has a well-balanced mix of cuisines on offer from Indian to Mongolian to Balinese to molecular gastronomy.
