Sticker Shock at the Long Bar, Singapore
My jaw just dropped when I saw this sign. S$29.45 (US$21) for a Singapore Sling?? Really? Granted, this was the Long Bar at the classy Raffles Hotel (1 Beach Road, 6412-1816). And sure, with that you got those endless buckets of local peanuts in a unique colonial setting where you could throw the shells on the ground. And maybe that price includes tax and tip too.
But seriously, US$21 for a drink?? Well, I suppose that if one is a tourist passing through town then this place is obligatory (and I've certainly been guilty of indulging in unnecessarily overpriced things). Can't one get this for free on SQ though?
