Located on the lower ground floor area of the restaurant, the Jungle Bar is a welcome retreat away from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street.
The inspiration behind the Jungle Bar is the Long Bar, the Raffles Hotel’s famous meeting point in colonial Singapore. It was the patrons of the Long Bar who first began the custom of throwing their empty peanut shells onto the floor as a show of rebellious appreciation. It is a tradition that has been resurrected at the Jungle Bar where guests are encouraged to do likewise. The bar has been designed to replicate a hunter’s perch with beautiful paintings of animals and forest scenery adorning the walls. Hurricane lamps, rattan wall-coverings, cane furniture, palms trees and tiger-skin rugs complete the scene. In the evenings, candlelight and soft background music give the bar a cosy and intimate feel.
Both the alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails have a unique Indian flavour and, most refreshing of all, you can try young coconut juice served straight from its shell. A delicious array of bar snacks are also available – Bombay Mix with sea salt and lemon, Spicy Grilled Salmon Salad rolled in betel nut leaves, Lemongrass and Prawn Kebab, Tandoori Smoked Cottage Cheese, and Sautéed Wild Mushrooms on a rice cracker.
