The historic Long Bar has reopened! Now fully restored, the Long Bar continues its proud tradition as the home of the Singapore Sling, widely regarded as our national cocktail. First created right here at Raffles Singapore in 1915 by Hainanese bartender Ngiam Tong Boon, the rosy-hued cocktail is primarily gin based and also contains pineapple juice, lime juice, curaçao and Bénédictine. The earthy decor of the two-story Long Bar is inspired by Malayan life in the 1920s. The deep, rich colours and lush greenery transport patrons to the edge of a tropical plantation. In keeping with the relaxed atmosphere, guests are invited to brush peanut shells off the table and bar counter to the floor. With its newly polished counter, the bar now shines amidst décor that marries bespoke architecture with contemporary motifs.
