Clarke Quay & Riverside Restaurants

Where and What to Eat in Clarke Quay & Riverside

The banks of the Singapore River have evolved over the years into bustling hubs of activity. Dining establishments have popped up on both sides of the River, taking advantage of the balmy breezes and lapping waves. Formerly part of the colonial district which played a major role in the maritime history of Singapore, Boat Quay is now a lively area where old shophouses have been converted into restaurants and bars. 

Opposite Boat Quay is the new Parliament House and Asian Civilisations Museum, both of which are home to trendy dining outlets. Further up the river lies Clarke Quay, another hotbed of themed restaurants, nightclubs and bars transformed from five 19th century warehouses. Opposite Clarke Quay is Riverside Point, home of Brewerkz, an American-style microbrewery.

Wings Bar

Wings Bar takes its name from both the food it serves and the 1940’s aviation theme which is evident throughout. To find this popular American eatery, head to Clarke Quay and look for the replica plane hanging above its entrance (which is actually the largest P-51 Mustang model in Asia), and then follow the replica runway down into the main restaurant area. As for the food, you’d can’t come to a place with a name like this and not try their speciality; their tantalising variety of sticky chicken wings (as well as ribs) are certainly not to be missed. Wash all that feel-good American food down with a beer and you’ve got yourself an all-round fun, tasty, (and a little gimmicky) dining experience.

  • Opening Hours: 17:00 - 02:00 Daily
