ROBERTSON QUAY
Next PageNo trip to Singapore would be complete without checking out its hip and happenin' night scene, and there's no better place to do it than Robertson Quay (also known as the Mohamed Sultan area). In recent years, this riverside party strip has surpassed both Boat Quay and Clarke Quay as the party capital of Singapore, to be crowned the Sultan of Swing.

one of the pubEach pub and dance club is stylish is its own way. Some have an oriental theme, with ancient Chinese-style signboards, red lanterns, and Chinese art pieces as a decorative base, whilst others are chic, mysterious, or sporty. Some have table top dancing, whilst others have sprawling dance floors. Some have themed nights, whilst others have drag shows. There's something for everyone.

club seventhMany of the pubs and dance clubs at Robertson Quay have no cover charge, so you can go hop from one pub to another and boogie all night long for FREE!

Entrance of dbl-0 On Fridays, Saturdays and eves of public holidays, the area is packed with throngs of party-goers having a good time. Even if pub crawling and jamming are a turn-off, it's still an excellent place to people watch. The crowd is youngish and the atmosphere casual. Of the 3 quays, Robertson Quay is the least touristy and it's definitely worth a night out by any backpacker in Singapore.

Spearheading the dance scene at Robertson Quay are DBL-O and Liquid Room.

The pubs are just too plentiful to name. There are several helpful websites with write-ups or reviews on those pubs. Check afterdark.hotspots.com, and e-clubbing.com. Bear in mind that competition for business at Robertson Quay is keen and there's a considerably high turnover rate for the pubs in the area. These sites help update you on whether a particular pub or club is still in business.
