Indulgence | 6 May 2022

Mari Beach Club

Opening with style on 26 March 2022, Bali’s newest destination, Mari Beach Club, presents an original approach to your typical beach club with a venue steeped in nature-based design and cultural inspiration. Found lining the shores of Batu Belig Beach, bordering Seminyak and Canggu, the new hotspot presents a chic and tropical Bohemian-style venue that has all the right beach club ingredients: an inviting, freeform infinity pool overlooking the ocean, with a swim-up bar and daybeds under the shade of palm trees.

 

Envisioned by Syah Establishments, an Indonesian hospitality and entertainment company, the beach club marks a new venture for the group and as such they have set out to create something unique: a beachfront destination that presents Bali as its muse. This is done subtly through the thoughtful design, with their iconic bamboo buildings engineered by Ibuku, a Bali-based company who master in sustainable bamboo architecture and design. Traditionanl alang-alang (elephant grass) roofs and the shading Balinese parasol umbrellas, or tedung, emphasise the island’s aesthetic influence. The eye-catching centre-piece at Mari Beach Club is a traditional wooden swing that is a recreation of those found in Tenganan Village, home to the indigenous ‘Bali Aga. Overall Mari presents a unique destination to immerse oneself in, a venue that matches its milieu, remaining stylish yet understated.

Platonic

Nightcrawlers on the search for the latest nightlife scene in Canggu will find new excitement in a brand-new bar that recently opened: Platonic. Tucked away in a small alley at Jalan Tanah Barak, Platonic is a warm, eccentric bar and intimate community space that celebrates art, people and music. First-time visitors can find the understated entrance to the bar against the venue’s black-brick façade.

 

Taking inspiration from today’s social culture, the name “Platonic” reflects the modern embodiment of sexuality, relationships and human-to-human intimacy that plays a role in forming the present-day cultural zeitgeist. The quirky venue is designed with a diverse mix of contradictory concepts, from neoclassical elements featured in the antique apothecary bar counter, rough plastered walls, bare cement floors, recovered floor tiles, and a cabinet adorned with liquor bottles and peculiar objects combined with mid-century modern furnishings with the leather upholstery, sleek organic curves and plywood walls.

 

Featuring a weekly line up of DJs spinning different genres of music including R&B, house and disco, Platonic’s laidback and welcoming ambience presents a space where modern creatives can gather for an intellectual night of indulgence with the innovative and refined cocktail menu. Signature cocktails to try include The Plan B, Ay, Dios Mio, Naked n Famous, Gone with the Gin, Hot Girl Summer, Purely Platonic and so much more!
