  • Clarke Quay has undergone a $62 million rejuvenation to transform into a vibrant day-and-night destination.
  • The new FairPrice Finest store adds a unique cultural and commercial element, blending grocery shopping with local heritage.
  • The introduction of daytime amenities like a fitness studio alongside nightlife ensures Clarke Quay remains lively around the clock.

Singapore's iconic Clarke Quay has undergone a significant transformation, reemerging as a bustling day-and-night destination. This revitalization comes after a $62 million rejuvenation project aimed at enhancing the area's appeal beyond its famed nightlife. The reopening of Clarke Quay introduces exciting new tenants like FairPrice Finest and an upcoming fitness studio, promising a diverse range of activities for both locals and tourists.

A Fresh Look with New Offerings

Clarke Quay's facelift is part of a strategic move by CapitaLand Integrated Commercial Trust (CICT) to broaden the precinct's appeal. The area is now divided into three zones: The Riverfront, The Warehouses, and a new section that includes the FairPrice Finest and the fitness studio. This segmentation caters to different interests and times of the day, ensuring that Clarke Quay remains lively from morning till night.

FairPrice Finest: A Nod to Local Heritage

One of the standout additions to Clarke Quay is the FairPrice Finest grocery store. This store is not just any supermarket; it is the 40th Finest store in Singapore and the first to incorporate an experiential concept that pays homage to the rich heritage of the precinct. The Grocer Food Hall within the store features vendors offering meals and heritage dishes that celebrate local flavors and history.

"Since the store’s opening in February, we have seen increased footfall from both locals and tourists," said Ms. Tan Huey Ling, head of channels for the retail business arm of FairPrice Group. The store also includes a bar with curated cocktails infused with local flavors, exclusive to Clarke Quay, enhancing the shopping experience with a taste of Singapore's culinary culture.

Fitness Studio: Promoting a Healthy Lifestyle

The upcoming fitness studio at Clarke Quay is another significant addition, aiming to attract health-conscious visitors. This facility will complement the daytime offerings at Clarke Quay, providing an option for those looking to integrate fitness into their daily routine amidst the scenic views of the Singapore River.

Balancing Day and Night

The challenge for Clarke Quay has been to maintain its reputation as a premier nightlife destination while evolving into a day-time hotspot. Richard Phua, the general manager of CQ, emphasized the importance of this balance. "It’s about the balancing act to curate between the day, and day-and-night trade," he explained. This strategic positioning is crucial for attracting a diverse crowd, ensuring that the precinct is vibrant at all hours.

The reopening of Clarke Quay marks a new chapter in the area's storied history. With its strategic new additions and thoughtful redesign, Clarke Quay is set to remain a key attraction in Singapore's urban tapestry. Whether you're shopping at FairPrice Finest, enjoying a workout at the new fitness studio, or exploring the nightlife, Clarke Quay offers something for everyone, at any time of the day.
