This year, Raffles Singapore is paying tribute to one of the world’s most iconic cocktails as the Singapore Sling marks its Centennial Anniversary. 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.
To celebrate this milestone anniversary, a myriad of activities has been planned throughout 2015. From commemorative merchandise to desserts inspired by the Singapore Sling, there are many opportunities to participate in the celebrations. Sign up for the Singapore Sling Masterclass, where bartenders from the Long Bar will divulge the secret to making the perfect cocktail or spend the night at the Raffles Singapore with the Singapore Sling 100th Anniversary Suite Package.
As Singapore marks the 50th anniversary of its founding in 2015, Raffles Singapore is celebrating this milestone with interesting tours of the property, delicious dining promotions and irresistible suite packages, and all guests are welcome to join us in the festivities. Find out more here
About the Long Bar
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 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.
