Well this was just to say we had done it. OK, but not any atmosphere. Very expensive. Bar man had no service skills.

Yes, it will set you back some $$$ for this iconic cocktail, but well worth it. Great setting in the bar -- did not stay at the hotel. This is definitely a 'must see' spot in Singapore, so put it on your list.

Obviously when we booked our trip to Singapore we knew that we needed to have a Singapore sling at raffles. Unfortunately, it is closed for renovations but they have a pop up bar. It isn’t great however the Singapore sling was nice.

The drink is perfect. To bad about the renovation. The renovation make it less special and cool. The pop up bar is a dull.

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!!!
