Bar hop furiously with everything under one roof

Clarke Quay
First published on . Updated on 16 May 2013.

Clarke Quay – a refurbished riverside development of old warehouses – consists almost exclusively of bars and restaurants. A plastic jellyfish-looking roof has been built overhead, with fountains and huge fans in place to cool the customers moving between venues. Anyone studying branding should certainly visit, as it seems mandatory that each venue must be differently and strongly themed. Visitors from the UK might sense a similarity to a modern High Street at home (read: Croydon), with Aussie visitors feeling that this could be Singapore's Bondi. But who cares? Nobody, judging from the barely containable crowds there on weekends. If you like to bar hop furiously with everything under one roof, then Clarke Quay is for you; if you like kooky little places with no theme, then it’s not.
