When we were told by a globetrotting friend that Potato Head was "the new 'new'", we simply had to check it out all for ourselves. And it really is seriously cool!
Born in to the Jakarta bar scene and created by Indonesian international art collectors Ronald Akili and Jason Gunawan with a view to revolutionising the south east Asian bar/restaurant/bistro concept, Potato Head is totally different to anything the city, with its thriving nightlife, has ever had on offer. It became synonymous with style, with a design that is based on a vintage industrial setting and divided in to three sections; ground, mezzanine and outdoor area. A bespoke cocktail bar at its epicentre, helmed by a team of professional mixologists, and the Potato Head phenonamon took flight - the cocktail list is totally customised for cool.
And the concept has taken a shining to neighbouring Bali, with the recent opening of the Potato Head Beach Club quickly cementing itself as THE hottest new place to be seen! Taking up pride of place smack bang on the beach at one of Bali's most prestigious addresses, at Jalan Petitenget in Seminyak, the Potato Head Beach Club is part art gallery, part lounge bar, part beach club complete with infinity pool and resident DJs. The new venture carries on the good name of its Jakarta sister, with a cocktail list that serves as a defining point for any and all who attend. And in a location that takes modern exotic to a whole new level of amazing, Potato Head is stylishly evocative, and just made for simmering away the day and melting in to memorable nights. Cocktail in hand, of course!
