Long Bar

Bar in Colonial District, the Quays & Marina Bay

Famous the world over, the Raffles Hotel's Long Bar is the very place that bartender Ngiam Tong Boon invented the now legendary Singapore Sling in 1915. Having undergone a sensitive restoration, the colonial plantation-inspired bar reopened in September 2018. Thankfully the beloved Sling remains the same, as does the tradition of discarding peanut shells directly on the floor.

Raffles Hotel is closed for renovations until mid-2019.
