potato head – jakarta/bali, indonesia

potato head jakarta is on the ground floor of pacific place mall. with the bonus of an outdoor seating area giving you the full jakarta humidity, diesel fuel, clove cigarette experience. my dad took us there for a late afternoon drink, and it seems like a pretty fun and trendy place. had the potato head mule: vodka, lime, ginger; can’t speak for the food but the drinks are good, and apparently it gets pretty cracking at night.

potato head beach club bali is right on seminyak beach. there’s an infiniti pool that overlooks seminyak beach making it the perfect place to watch the sunset with poolside lounge-beds, cocktails and food. if you order a reasonable minimum you get pool access all day. my highlight drink was the prohibition ice tea (what would happen if a long island was actually good): vodka, gin and rum served in a teapot with mini teacups and a side of vodka infused orange slices. i had to stop myself from drinking too many of these and ending up too drunk to enjoy bbq and martini’s later.

both outposts have a similar design aesthetic and the personal highlight for me were the walls of old window shutters. solid drink list with some interesting history and facts about each cocktail.
