The Hype is there, in this place of Seminyak... You feel it as soon as you get in this Restaurant & Bar. First you have the decoration: How to describe it ? The owner of the place, Australian Adrian Reed, tried to imitate a 1960's Acapulco ambiance (in Mexico), with images of Mexican Wrestlers and "Dia de Muertos", the Mexican Holiday. It is very colorful and very impressive at first sight. When you look closely at it, it is mostly an accumulation of old objects, weird paintings on the wall and other decoration that doesn't make any sense.
The people who are going to this place are 90% tourists and expats. That is the case for all the hype venues in Seminyak. Basically all the people who stay in Potato Head Beach Club during daytime are coming to this place after Beach/Pool time.
The music is good and the place hosts many events since they have a stage in the middle of the Bar. I like to go there for a drink since the place is very open. Pricewise, count 500 000 Rp for a pitcher of Margarita (5 drinks). I don't need to mention the fact that you can go there wearing flip-flops, Bali Bintang tank top. It's Bali, you don't need to dress up to go out !
Overall: I would recommend this place to have a drink before heading to Jenja Bar & Club or Townhouse. I did not try the restaurant yet but judging from the prices it looked expensive. Try the Margaritas, they are refreshing.
