Robertson Quay used to be one of the 3 largest wharfs at the source of Singapore River. The other two quays are Boat Quay and Clarke Quay. Robertson Quay occupies roughly 50 hectares of Singapore River starting about 1.5 km from river mouth and ending near the Kim Seng Bridge. In the 1880s, the warehouses and wharfs are built in European and Chinese style. In 1990s, the URA (Urban Redevelopment Authority) made this area for hotel, commercial and residential uses. It is currently urbanized area filled with restaurants, pubs, cafes, condominiums, offices and other recreational facilities. It is under Tanjong Pagar GRC.
This gem of night entertainment located at the furthest reach of the Singapore River offers a tranquil ambience for an intimate dinner by Singapore River or a hip and happening evening to chill out with friends.
With its eclectic mix of international restaurants with alfresco dining, wine bars, arts houses, hotel cafes and high class condominiums, Robertson Quay has come into its own with a string of pleasant dining spots that have attracted their own following.
