During my stay in Singapore I visited with some friends this famous colonial-style bar. Excellent atmosphere in traditional teak-wood style with a lot of fans at the ceiling. Of course a must to order a singapore-sling on the long-bar. At the tables are peanuts free...More

On the to do list in Singapore, have a (expensive) Sling at the original (now refurbished) Long Bar. The hotel is still being refurbished so for now it is just the bar with peanut shells on the floor. Bar is nice, great ambiance.

The only reason to go to Long Bar is to be able to say that you did it and tick it off your things-to-do list. The cocktails were way overpriced and very average. For me personally, it is the most overrated experience in Singapore. For...More

First impression: Tasty Indonesian peanuts with shells scattering all over the white, grey and black pattern floor, one might think that the bar has been frequented by monkeys, while air conditioners and ceiling of bamboo fans that are moved by electricity keeping the place cool....More

Nice place to chill out with friends, good ambiance and interesting decor. Friendly staff. But the drinks are quite pricey.

Due to Raffles Hotel currently under renovation, we were pleasantly surprised that the Long Bar was open for business. It was very refreshing to sit in cool comfort with a traditional Singapore Sling and do what is expected (shell the peanuts onto the floor). This...More

You need to check that the Raffles Hotel has reopened, as during our visit in April, it was under-going a complete refurbishment. To get the Singapore Sling experience, there was a very small temporary 'pop-up' Long Bar at... More

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!!!
