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.

It's an iconic bar, one of the most famous in the world and needs to be visited when in Singapore. The interior of the design is dark and moody as you would imagine and oozes character and history. The drinks are very expensive but you would expect that. Singapore Slings , Dark and Stormy and Moscow Mule all consumed and... More

Ali baba & Alex were the best of all. Fantastic Singapore slings and prawn spring rolls to die for. Beer wasn't bad either and loved having the nuts on the table and no one looking over your shoulder to see where the shells.went. Brilliant experience that must be done if visiting Singapore.

I visited the long bar with a friend and we were not disappointed. The singapore slings tasted very good, not too much alcohol but also not too sweet. The service was very attentive and good, exactly what you'd expect of such a place. On the second floor there was even a live band playing very nice music. We really enjoyed... More

Really enjoyed eating and drinking in the Long Bar, still amused at the price paid for the meal and drinks 'deal'. We were tucked away in the corner so it was little quieter, but the place was very busy and a good interesting experience, particular when a wrong drink was served and it was opted to keep it, turns out...

So it may not be the place it was but when in Singapore you have to go to The Long Bar for a Singapore Sling. 70 singapore dollars for 2! You don't have to go through Raffles main hotel entrance to get to The Long Bar. It can be accessed directly off the Bras Basah Road which is just around... More

We visited Singapore for one night on a stopover. Took a taxi to the Raffles Hotel for a look around the historic building. We went upstairs to the Long Bar for a Singapore Sling. I don't even like them, but when in Singapore. The hotel is a throw-back to a bygone age, with the Long Bar being a magnet for... More

Well...you kind of have to stop here when you're in Singapore because (duh!) it's where the Singapore Sling was invented. BUT - it's a definite cattle call where customers are herded in and herded out as quickly as possible to keep the cash rolling. That being said - the Singapore Sling really is a delicious drink. Menu items are ridiculously... More

Wow. I'm not sure where to start. I'd heard this place was a bit of a joke now but wasn't prepared for the upstairs karaoke at 11:30pm. Karaoke! We had a Singapore Sling and a Gin Sling. They had "run out" of Gin Fizz which was my wife's preferred choice. Total came to $69.95 with service and tax. £35. Bonkers.... More

Yep I know it's touristy but it has to be done - had fun getting there - it's literally a 10 minute walk form our hotel - somehow we got a little lost and an hour later we found it. Really needed a drink then so 1 Singapore sling for me; 1 winter sling and 1 summer sling were ordered... More
