Bali, 2013 - Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa continues to innovate and invigorate the local hospitality landscape, with the launch of The Lobby. This chic lounge bar is the only in the Nusa Dua area to serve spirits, cocktails and other drinks until 2.00am, providing its valued guests as well as visitors and residents with another quality food & beverages option to join its existing seven.
Renowned Indonesian architect and interiors experts Hadiprana oversaw the design. The firm, known for its use of cultured and crafted spaces, recently opened an office in Bali.
As such, The Lobby incorporates authentic Balinese touches in a lounge bar and veranda setting, with an ergonomically sensitive interior. This extends onto a visually striking outside area where visitors can enjoy the chilled ambience and evocative views over the resort and the ocean. “The idea behind The Lobby was to create an upscale venue where specially created beverages can be savoured in a comfortable and beautiful environment,” said Urs Klee, General Manager.
“In The Lobby, Balinese tradition gels with contemporary lounge ambience, and warm wooden design flourishes mix with quality art,” he added. “Vibrant colours and our own carefully crafted music and backdrops adapt to the different moods of the day, with the charm and soul of Bali surrounding visitors.”
Importantly, The Lobby offers a stunning range of beverage options and services, provided by Fling International Bar Services. These include a bespoke cocktail list focusing on homemade and fresh local ingredients highlighting aged Caribbean rums and a variety of fresh and trendy cocktails. The afternoons will see a selection of freshly prepared juices and smoothies.
Fling International Bar Services is a team of professional bar developers and hospitality operators dedicated to the improvement of bartending, hospitality training, bar operation and drinks service world-wide. In summer 2011, Flings International’s award-winning team designed the menu and trained the staff at Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa.
The bespoke cocktail list will focus on homemade and fresh local ingredients offering a focus on well-researched classics with a twist such as cherrywood-smoked Manhattan, Two Islands Ice Tea and Nusa Dua punch. The afternoons will bring a selection of freshly prepared juices and smoothies. “Apart from a great selection of cocktails and smoothies, Nusa Dua will have one of the finest collections of spirits in the Balinese scene, making it the trendy and sophisticated, to-see-and-to-beseen venue,” said Wilkinson.
The Lobby is open daily from 11.00am to 2.00am with live DJ performances every Thursday and Satruday starting at 9.00pm onwards. Reservations are recommended to +62 (361) 771210.
