The Long Bar has a famous backstory, and is a “must-visit” spot when in Singapore. The Singapore Sling is a delicious, festive drink. Drinks at the bar are overpriced, to be sure, but there is great ambiance and lots of tradition, including peanut shells on...More

Of course we had to have a Singapore Sling, it was expensive but one has to taste the original recipe and it did not disappoint. The bar was remodeled and had a snazzy British flair. The rest of the building was still under renovations.

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.

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!!!
