We get you, Bali’s been busy the last weeks and you may think “Is there not enough cool places to eat now?” as you queue in packed places.
Be still… if you are (still) here, or plan to return soon, this month’s lineup can be your guide!
The Pontiac Stardust
Sits next to the Alila Seminyak, The Pontiac Stardust is a cosmic road trip thru 1950’s/60’s Palm Springs. A progressive cocktail bar inspired by the art and energy of mid-century modern Palm Springs, this is a culture not a concept helmed by award-winning bartender, Beckaly Franks. Reinvention with continued ethos and drive. The Pontiac Stardust is dubbed the First Lady of Mixology, Beckaly, who is the first female mixologist to win the prestigious 42 Below Cocktail World Cup.
