Despite very long queues to get inside, we did not have to wait long. As a Singapore Sling costs $32 I assume people don’t hang around in there for too long! We enjoyed the Slings and a mocktail as well as throwing the peanuts around...More

This bar has been recently renovated but the rest of the hotel continues to be under wraps. There was a short queue to get in, the atmosphere was not what it was years ago, the drinks were very expensive and there were nutshells all over...More

Raffles hotel is still closed for refurbishment, but the Long Bar is now re-opened for business. Although refurbished it seems just the same and still retains that old colonial character. The drinks are expensive, but you're not just paying for the drinks, you're paying for...More

The Long Bar has a great history and a Singapore Sling shaken with the historic shaker is a must as is eating monkey nuts and throwing the shells on the floor. A must do while in the city.
