After $14.6-million makeover, new nightspots to bring new buzz to Clarke Quay
A new crop of nightclubs and food and beverage outlets have popped up in Clarke Quay in the last six months, in an apparent bid to revitalise the nightlife mecca and draw a more sophisticated crowd in their 20s to 40s.
The arrival of these newcomers - including futuristic-themed nightclub Dream, Asian-fusion nightclub Playhouse, brasserie and ultra-lounge Cassis, and New Zealand-themed bar and eatery Fern & Kiwi - comes after the January completion of a $14.6 million spruce-up of Clarke Quay by its landlord, CapitaMalls Asia.
New food and beverage outlets have also set up shop in the past year, such as the 1940s aviation-themed restaurant Wings Bar, Korean restaurant BOSS BarBQ and Chinese hot pot restaurant Hai Di Lao.
Mr Keith Low, Clarke Quay's centre manager, noted that the "refreshed tenant mix" has contributed to increased visitor traffic in the area. From 500,000 a month a few years ago, the area now sees more than a million visitors every month.
