We visited Raffles, The Long Bar in particular, as part of a Singapore by Night tour. It was quite an experience. The music from the live band was excellent. We spent an hour or so there before leaving. We didn't have a Singapore Sling as it cost $72, just too much.

The beautiful old Colonial building is well maintained and allows you to imagine what life was like in Singapore a century ago. If you get a chance, stop for a Singapore Sling in the Long Bar.

surrounded by busy roads and tall buildings Raffles hotel is an oasis of calm. Staffing within the walls of this hotel is like stepping into a different world it's a good examples of poor and no visit to Raffles would be complete without a Singapore sling in the long bar, and the chance to throw your peni and the chance...

This hotel is everything you have read or heard...a grand old beauty and yes you really must have a Singapore Sling in the bar....just keep in mind that while the bar is casual, you are not allowed into the hotel or its upscale restaurants in anything less than business casual. This hotel provides a real glimpse into the world of... More

Beautiful historic building and grounds. I followed my Dad's advise to go there for a Singapore Sling, which is a drink that originated at Raffles. This was a 31 Singapore dollar Drink, but probably worth the expenditure to try it and be able to say you did it. Raffles rooms were going for over 2k a night when I was... More

Went for a visit during our stay in Singapore. $163 for a round of Singapore Slings which is even well over the top but has to be done....Cheers

Home of the famous Singapore sling and icon bar. If you stop to have a drink be aware it will come at a very hefty price to say you had a sling at Raffles. I got on a night tour that included a video sot to the bar and a drink. Less expensive this way
