Clarke Quay served as a dock for the loading and unloading of cargo for commercial houses and warehouses. It was named after Sir Andrew Clarke, governor of the Straits Settlements from 1873 to 1875. Because of the earlier cargo services at this place, the river got polluted hence the government then cleaned up the Singapore River from 1977 to 1987. This is spot is one of the key tourist attractions in Singapore. Clarke Quay is filled with different restaurants with different cuisines, pubs and clubs alongside the Singapore River, so the atmosphere here is usually crowded with loud music to light jazz. I can simply describe this place as every tourist to there says, "Clarke Quay comes alive at sunset". This is the excellent place for the people who loves the Nightlife.
