Long Bar

Long Bar at Raffles Singapore

As part of our restoration programme, Long Bar will be closed starting from 13 February 2017. The Singapore Sling will still continue to be served at it's temporary new home, the Bar & Billiard Room. For more details, please click here.

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 truest 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 offers a mélange 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.

What's Happening

The Singapore Sling, widely regarded as the national drink of the country, was first created in 1915 at the Long Bar in Raffles Singapore by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon. It later went on to gain international fame and a century later, is still enjoyed around the globe.
