Overview

Long Bar is now closed as part of our restoration programme and is slated for a grand reopening in the middle of 2018, along with the rest of the hotel. Home of the Singapore Sling, this two-story 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.

Peanut Shells on the floor. Yes. But that is as crazy it gets here. It was fun visiting this historical place but it's nothing special. Really. Just a nice bar with cozy atmosphere.

Whilst the renovations are being done on this beautiful hotel, a pop up bar has been made available for the glorious Singapore Slings 🇸🇬🍹 at $31 each! Well worth visiting as pasty of your trip here and enjoy the monkey nuts 🥜

The Long Bar has been replaced with a very small pop-up bar. On the day we went there was a long queue, and we decided not to wait. I enjoyed a Singapore Sling back at our hotel!!

Yes, they are. They serve cocktails and snack type foods. They might enjoy throwing peanuts on the floor! Be prepared for the really expensive prices!!!
