Description: Home of the Singapore Sling, this two-storey bar located on the second...
Home of the Singapore Sling, this two-storey bar located on the second floor of Raffles Singapore is the place where travellers undergo one of the true rites of passage of travel. While there, sip on the world famous pink cocktail created in 1915 by bar captain Ngiam Tong Boon, and toss peanut shells onto the floor, the only place in Singapore where "littering" is permitted. The menu also offers a melange of cocktails and non-alcoholic concoctions, together with traditional pub favourites. The earthy interiors are inspired by Malayan plantation life in the 1920s. Oriental carpets are overlain on tiled floors and the furniture is traditional stained cane and rattan. A charming timber spiral staircase connects the two levels of the Long Bar with the seating above interspersed with teak lounge chairs.

If you visit Singapore and don't stop in for a Sling you need to go directly to jail and don't collect $200. This is the whole reason Singapore is a country. The peanuts, the too slow ceiling fans and the drink that makes you feel at home here even if you have never stepped foot anywhere in Asia before. If... More

Two drinks....a Singapore Sling and a glass of Penfolds Shiraz.... For just under $70 ....but the peanuts are free, and you do get to throw the shells on the floor!! It's a tradition, and it is touristy, but worth going once. (Don't be tempted to buy a second round!)

I loved to atmosphere at the bar but was disappointed that the price of a Singapore Sling, or any drink for that matter, was so expensive. A total rip off for a cocktail at $35! Probably would never go back because of this.

OK it is a very touristy thing to do but it is a great way to spend an afternoon - relaxing in the cool of the long bar sipping on a Singapore sling and feeling decadent by dropping the monkey nut shells on the floor ! The bar snacks were a good idea to soak up the drinks ! It... More

Coming on the heels of our seven week trip to SE Asia, we bid adieu to a fantastic trip with three days in Singapore with a friend from Malaysia who met us there. Amongst many memorable activities we indulged in, we went to the Long Bar at the Raffles Hotel to have a Singapore Sling where the drink was created.... More

Have to close out a visit to the Long Bar at Raffles Hotel. Entrance is from the outside of the hotel at the back so we had to walk all the way from the entrance. As you walk upstairs they have the history of the Singapore Sling which is informative. Quickly seated as we were only 2 and the menu... More

Yes it is a touristy thing to do, but why not? Enjoyed the Singapore Sling and peanuts on the tables. Historical colonial feel to the bar and an air of excitement makes it even more memorable.

This is one of the places you must visit whilst in Singapore. Yes the drinks are expensive but where else in the world can you eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor. So sit down and have a famous Singapore Sling, eat peanuts, check out the beautiful old wood work, roof fans and soak up the atmosphere......you will... More

Step back in time at the iconic Long Bar in the Raffles Hotel. We visited for the famous Sling and ended up ordering Summer, Spring, Autumn and Winter Slings (there were 4 of us). You were given a large bag of nuts and could throw the shells onto the floor which was littered when we left. We were served by... More

Since it's a Singapore institution and included in 1000 places to see before you die you kind of have to make a stop here when in Singapore as a tourist. Most people are drinking the famous Singapore Sling - but if you don't like fruity drinks or incredibly over priced drinks go for an overpriced but cheaper Tiger. It goes... More
