This is a little mini blog diary dedicated to showcasing the restaurants and bars we are frequenting whilst in Bali…Enjoy…
Night #1 :
We Headed out of the villa and went to the Canggu Country Club, which our villa has reciprocal rights to…Handy…I would compare it to a very pared back Raffles Hotel In Singapore..White Building, lush grounds, great pool, gym..and well priced cocktails…A definite draw card..The Bloody Marys were Bloody Hot and hit the spot..A nice way to ease into the Bali Holiday.
Then it was off to Sardine for dinner..Behind its stone feature wall on busy Jalan Petitenget, Sardine boasts the Bali diner’s latest must-have accessory – a private rice paddy. Savvy operators are realising that the tourists want authenticity whilst dining..So introduce a paddock..tres chic?…It works..It was super windy and the power blacked out a few times, but it was a lovely meal, more hot and spicy Bloody Mary’s, these came with a prawn instead of celery..Cute..Great first night Dining…
Today the weather was good..less wind, so we booked dinner at Ku De Tah..It’s a must do for sunset drinks and dinner there is always good…However, the weather turned and it was a red hot mess…Sand stuck on ones cheek is not a pleasant way to dine…So we canned Ku De Tah after a strawberry daiquiri ..and headed elsewhere..
A friend told me about this bistro called Petitinget..I googled it and loved the design..So we headed there to check it out…It was really cool…Great floor detail which to me set the tone for the whole place….Understated decor, exposed cement curved walls, pressed tin walls and old school Parisian Pendant lights set the mood. The food was good, but the vodka shots were better….
The 3rd stop on what was fast becoming an old fashioned pub crawl was the infamous Potato Head Beach Club…now this is a feast for the eyes…Designed by acclaimed architect Andra Matin as a modern take on the Coliseum, the towering elliptical facade is crafted in Potato Head’s seminal trademark of mismatched 18th century teak shutters collected from across the Indonesian archipelago. The beachfront bar and 500-square meter emerald lawn leading to an infinity pool is all housed inside a state-of-the-art amphitheater. We drank more cocktails, more than deemed necessary and took in the semi Euro vibe of the club….
The 4th and final stop…was a bar that we passed on our way home…we told the driver to wait and we jumped out.. I have no idea what its called and I have no idea where it was…It was a cabaret style club, full of every nationality all getting into the groove of the magnificent band…the singer sang blues, jazz and then launched into a Russian song, of which we understood not a word, however the table of Russians were all singing and even teared up..Pretty powerful …Even more so with a belly full of vodka…..Night #2..Done
