The Raffles Hotel is a grand Victorian edifice rising from the
pavements of the colonial district. Its elegant charm has enticed
writers and entertainers such as Somerset Maugham, Rudyard Kipling,
Joseph Conrad and Charlie Chaplin. Singapore Slings have become the
hallmark of the Long Bar. Here ceiling fans whirr above the heads
of expatriates and tourists as they sip smart cocktails in superb
comfort. The Tiffin Room is best known for its afternoon teas and
sumptuous Saturday night buffets. Gin and tonics alongside the odd
game of snooker can be enjoyed at the Bar & Billiard. Other
distractions include an upper-level museum containing vignettes and
photographs on the lives of Charlie Chaplin, Elizabeth Taylor,
Richard Burton and Noel Coward, as well as a Victorian-style
playhouse and numerous specialty shops and restaurants.
