You Just Can’t Miss Clarke Quay If You Want To Have A Taste Of Singapore Nightlife
As the evening sun sets, the place comes to life as you’ll find many professionals and expatriates dining and clubbing along the jazz bars, English-themed pubs and restaurants throughout the night
Let us meet on a Wednesday evening to unwind the office stress and make new friends over Drinks in a Lounge.
Venue: Anastasia Lounge
The Forbidden City, Clarke Quay
3A Merchant’s Court, River Valley Road, #01-02
Step into the Forbidden City via the river entrance and you'll find yourself in Anastasia Lounge, aka the red room.
Anastasia is decked out in opulent red chandeliers and baroque-style black and silver furniture, a perfect chill-out spot fit for royalty.
Located in the longest-standing building in Clarke Quay, it was established in the 1880s as a mansion for the Chinese Gambier trader, Tan Yeok Nee. It is one of only two World Heritage Sites in Singapore, as claimed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
Anastasia Lounge is part of the new multi-concept Forbidden City where Anastasia takes up around half of the first floor of the River House. She is separated from her sister outlet, Bianca Supper.Club by soundproof folding doors and glass windows, allowing for dual types of music to be played to attract different crowds. The folding doors can also be pushed back to create a larger space for big events.
