long bar, this way please

Step this way, to the Long Bar at the iconic Raffles Hotel. Haven't stepped in there really, heard about the peanut shells scattered all over its floor in the good ole days. Maybe they cleaned up leaving some tokenly strewn ones? Two storey bar, inspired by Malayan plantations of the 1920s, home to the (hic!) Singapore Sling, a pink cocktail originally meant for ladies, first concocted by a Hainanese bartender in 1915.

The bar serves up your favourite thirst quencher, alcoholic or not, and traditional pub fare, in the form of a meal or snacks. Cash to spare? Step into this historic bar and pocket some memories during a Singapore stopover.
