Circular Road might be named after the curve road that was built parallel to Singapore River. This place used to be a Teochew enclave and most of the shops here were selling fabrics and textiles. In 1989, Circular Road and other areas in the proximity of Singapore River were gazetted and the shophouses were preserved and transformed into new businesses mainly restaurants, pubs and bars. Interesting post about the old days here.
