Long Bar

Historic watering hole at the Raffles hotel

A century ago, bartender Ngiam Tong Boon first mixed his now world-famous Singapore Sling at this bar in the city’s iconic Raffles hotel. Today, the two-storey venue transports patrons – a colourful mix of camera-wielding tourists and suit-wearing business people – back to the early 20th century with its oriental carpets, teak lounge chairs and atmospheric green pendant lamps. Guests are welcome to toss peanut shells on the floor – making it likely the only place in all of Singapore where littering isn’t only allowed, but encouraged.
