Eat, Drink and be Merry at Robertson Quay

You’ve got so many choices to eat, drink and be merry in Singapore: Holland Village, Dempsey Hill, Chip Bee Garden, Emerald Hill, Rochester Park, ORTO, Ann Siang Hill & Club Street, Clarke Quay, Prinsep Street among others (I’m just naming as many to link to other posts really)…

If you are a little more mature and can afford slightly more expensive meals, then Robertson Quay is the place for you.

Robertson Quay 1Located upstream from the rowdier Clarke Quay and Boat Quay (at the mouth of the Singapore River), Robertson Quay was the largest of the three wharves along the river.

Robertson Quay 2The long stretch from River Valley all the way to Tiong Bahru spreads the crowd over a larger area and makes the whole region much quieter.

Robertson Quay 5The relative calm of the place is reflected in the fact that all the clubbing in the area was done mostly at one place, Zouk at Jiak Kim Street. Zouk ended its time in Jiak Kim last year with a bash and has moved to Clarke Quay, making the Robertson Quay area even quieter.

Here is a video about the club when it was still at Jiak Kim.

Zouk was the same company that started ZoukOut and Sentosa.

The quay area is also great for a walk on a breezy night after dinner or drinks.
