Disappointed to hear that Raffles will be closed on our visit in two weeks time. :(
Can anyone tell me the cost of a sling please, I’ve heard contrasting prices ranging from £20 to £85?
Thanks in advance.
roughly about 35 SGD , just under £20. I would like to know who paid £85 !!
When Raffles reopens I imagine there will be a period of promotion where they’ll be offering “Slings” at a discounted price, somewhere around the $20-$25 mark, maybe even less. It’s only a guess, but I’d like to think a moderately experienced one.
Whoever said they paid @$85 had drunk too many to know, or telling fibs. 😆
The popup bar was charging about 40SGD per sling once you add in taxes and service this June. At current exchange rates thats about 22-24GBP. Its never been close to 85GBP. The popup bar is kinda cute but its not the full Long Bar feel despite the peanut sacks, though the longer the restoratino runs the more is visible of the hotel.
Thanks everyone who’s responded. Anyone know when it’s reopening?
I don't think that have actually named a day yet, the website states " planned reopening in the end of 2018 "
Hello, I have just returned today from Singapore,we went to the raffles pop up bar for an original Singapore sling it was $31++ for a drink, ++ is the taxes they add on,it cost us $72 for 2 drinks,I saw plenty of places were it was a lot cheaper don’t know if they would be as good,hope that helps, enjoy Singapore.
Thanks for all of your feedback. We will go to the pop up bar and try a sling and perhaps return next year to engage in the true Raffles experience.
Will arrive their on Thursday and truly looking forward to it. :)

That depends on the recipe and your taste. There is one called the Heritage Brew that I dislike, but it sells well so presumably hits so e peoples taste buds.
So you need to know the mix and go with the one you like. I make them at home myself and tend to drier ingredients, so in Raffles ask for more bitters in mine.
