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.

Very interesting drinking concept where you can litter the floor without anyone frowning. You are given peanuts in shells, eat and throw the shells onto the wooden floor! Drinks are wide ranging including the Singapore Sling.

The bar is famous from the movies Casablanca so well worth the visit as it remains very much the same. Drinks are very expensive and I would stir clear of the peanuts on the table.

We were told by eveybody you have not been to Singapore if you did not have the Singapore sling at Long bar. There is no friendly people. Once you get a place upstairs dont think you can have peanuts. They dont even smile. Was so looking forward to this but the people working there is not friendly like expected

We visited this bar as we were recommended to do so by pretty much everyone we met in Singapore. The Singapore sling cocktails are delicious and it's very easy to consume 2 even 3 very easily. They are a bit more expensive than other bars in the city but you pay for the name! The floor of the bar is... More

Four of us went for a Singapore Sling, after brunch, but were slightly disappointed. Lacked atmosphere and felt a bit gloomy.

It's one of those things you HAVE to do, a Singapore Sling in The Long Bar. The bar itself is quite big and there are plenty of seats and staff around. It wasn't as touisty as i was expecting after reading some of the reviews and it was a very pleasant experience. Go and do it if you are in... More

I loved the long bar, it's everything I imagined! Yes the drinks are expensive, but they are everywhere in Singapore. I loved my Singapore sling, though the frozen ones at the top (viewing area) of the Bay View Sands Hotel win hands down! Only one complaint the monkey nuts are tiny! Come on long bar...invest in bigger nuts!

Enjoyed the traditional Singspore Sling but I missed all the peanut shells on the floor. This is a place worth visiting for 1 drink and then move on to the next place.

Throwing peanuts on the floor brought back childhood memories. The Singapore sling was wonderful more than one would have killed me

Experience this historical bar eating groundnuts from the hessian bag on the table while waiting for your authentic Singapore Sling. I actually preferred the Gin Sling which is not as sweet and is nicely refreshing with a plate of chicken sate. Alcohol is very expensive in Singapore but its worth paying the price to experience this iconic bar. It gets... More
