Highlander Whisky Bar

Our hotel takes its name from Sir Thomas Stamford Bingley Raffles – the founder of modern Singapore.

Noted as a great statesman, he was instrumental in the expansion of the British Empire, which included introducing the tradition of enjoying a fine whisky into the South East Asian region.

Our Highlander Whisky Bar celebrates his pioneering spirit.

Highlander Whisky Bar welcomes you into a classic, stylish relaxed atmosphere, serving a gourmet bar menu selection, a range of high teas and a grand selection of fine whiskies, liqueurs and cocktails.

Open from lunch until late each evening, Highlander Whisky Bar is a popular meeting place for both guests and those wishing to escape the buzz of the CBD while still being right in the heart of it.

Select from our diverse food menu that offers snacks, light lunch and more substantial meals for pre-opera dining or dinner.

For those that have more time, take advantage of our famous Sydney High Teas - designed to be a refreshing indulgence.

At night, Highlander Whisky Bar is a perfect sanctuary to wind down after an exciting day in Sydney. Relax and refresh with Highlander Whisky Bar's whiskies, cocktails, wine by the glass or your favourite beverage.
