McGettigan's Clarke Quay has quickly become a vibrant nightlife and entertainment hub, since

opening its doors in April 2015. The bar is open daily, for lunch, dinner and drinks, and draws a

lively week-long crowd – who enjoy its award-winning Irish cuisine, the city’s best live music

performances, ladies’ nights, regular happy hours and promotions, plus the world's top sporting

events, which are shown live on its numerous HD screens.

Private parties and events can be accommodated in The Malt Room, which can be found on the

mezzanine level at McGettigan's Clarke Quay. This private room provides the ideal space for

after work drinks, leaving parties and social corporate gatherings and celebrations. Tailored

packages are available on request.


Steeped in Irish family history, the very first McGettigan’s Pub was opened in Ireland in the

1960s on Queen Street in Dublin by company founder, Jim McGettigan. In late 2010, the

awardwinning bar crossed continents from Dublin to the United Arab Emirates, opening its first

international branch in Dubai at the Bonnington Hotel, JLT before returning back home to

Ireland and subsequently opening bars in New York, Singapore and various locations throughout

Ireland and the UAE.

About Clarke Quay (

Located along the iconic Singapore River at the fringe of Singapore’s Central Business District, Clarke Quay sits on a historical commercial site dating back to the 19th Century. Today, Clarke Quay has been boldly restored and refurbished into five beautiful waterfront godowns under a climate controlled canopy illuminated by coloured lighting, creating a modern and cosmopolitan ambience amidst the tradition and history. Owned by CapitaLand Mall Trust and managed by CapitaLand Mall Asia, Clarke Quay plays host to a wide array of about 60 restaurants, wine bars and entertainment outlets, attracting about one million visitors every month.

Clarke Quay was crowned Singapore’s best nightspot at the 2014 AsiaOne People’s Choice Awards, organised by AsiaOne, Singapore’s leading news portal. Last year, Clarke Quay was awarded the 2015 Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor and identified by TripAdvsor as one of 50 iconic places to visit in Singapore, based on the travel website’s data on the most-reviewed attractions and eateries.
