    • Description: Cuba Libre at Clarke Quay may be overlooked by some Singaporeans and expats as just a tourist bar, but it stands out for its lively atmosphere, live music, and overall feel-good vibes.

One should not miss trying the signature Mojitos, even though they come with a price tag of $S24.
