On Sunday night The Boy and I decided to treat ourselves to drinks at The Elephant bar at the Hotel Le Royal (Raffles).
I think everyone should visit the Le Royal at least once, the Hotel is an elegant Colonial building. The drive is lined with Frangiapani trees and red-carpeted stairs lead you to a grand foyer. I generally like to dress up when we go, just because I can. If you ever feel like you need to escape the noise, humidity, traffic and chaos, treat yourself to drinks here, it feels like you’ve stepped into another world. If you come at the right time you may even be treated to a pianist.
Raffles has prices to match its 5-star rating. But, thankfully, they also have a long happy hour from 4 pm to 9 pm (5 hours – all happy hours should be that long!), with 50% off selected cocktails and other drinks.
