The Singapore Sling is served at the long bar. It's quite a nice place. When we were there, a very good jazz band was playing. The weird thing about the place is that it is perfectly acceptable to throw peanut shells on the floor!
The drink was a bit of a letdown. It tasted like cough syrup. I think i've actually had better tasting cough syrup. I only managed to drink a few centremetres of mine. The rest went to my friends.
I'm sure I've also had cheaper cough syrup. We had assumed that the price mentioned in the Lonely Planet guide was correct. Not the case. Apparently there had been a price rise. We had also forgotten to consider that tax would not be included in that price (it is included for most things) or that they would add a service charge. In the end it cost S$27 a drink! (AU$21, US$19). My friends were so shocked at the bill that they asked for copies of the receipt to keep as souvenirs.
