Boat Quay is a historical Quay of Singapore. It is situated on the southern bank of the Singapore River. It is a social waterfront located between Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay.

Boat Quay went on to become a phenomenally successful port and played a significant role in Singapore’s economy. One of the reasons was that Boat Quay had a free port status. Even though a second harbour was built in Tanjog Pagar to handle the increasing traffic, Boat Quay still received more than half of all shipping in Singapore. This was because of the opening of the Suez Canal, which saw steamships coming into the port. Boat Quay started declining in the 1960s as computerisation and mechanisation took over the bumboat’s role. Today, Boat Quay is a business and entertainment district with a vibrant night life for the locals, western expats and tourists that swarm the place from all over the world. There are a number of best in class service apartments in Boat Quay Singapore.
The Boat Quay of today that we see is the result of the efforts of the Urban Redevelopment Authority, which made plans to preserve Boat Quay and conserving the entire Singapore River and its environs in 1986. The two and three storied shop houses were converted into new businesses. The warehouses were also restored and converted into restaurants, bars and shops. Boat Quay is now a vibrant commercial area and is also home to a number of start-up companies. There are a numbers of multi cuisine restaurants, cafes, bars, designer shops and boutiques and various clubs for partying and a thriving night life.
