Wild and crazy theme bars at Clarke Quay in Singapore

Over the years Clarke Quay has come a long way.  From the laidback comfortable bars and restaurants on the river  to the theme bars that are the dominant and sometimes bizarre species, it has gone from slightly dilapidated to super glossy.  Sure there are some tasteless establishments like the watering hole with the wheelchair seating, but overall, its more interesting than the run of the mill watering holes found in other cities.  There is a certain sense of plasticity (real word?) to the area but it’s still fun.  Kinda like a Disneyland for adults.
