BALI’S FIRST SPEAKEASY

Exquisite Taste - - Grapevine - – By Amanda Lux­ford

Baker Street So­cial is a tiny bar that is full with just 30 peo­ple. While this speakeasystyle venue has no sign out­side and a small cock­tail menu, those in the know love its rich am­bi­ence and cre­ative bar­tenders.

The ded­i­cated bar team, led by Cre­ative Direc­tor Jimmy Burchett, is fo­cused on ar­ti­sanal spir­its and craft­ing cock­tails es­pe­cially for you. The shelves are packed with home­made in­fu­sions, se­cret con­coc­tions and all the tools of the trade. Tell your bar­tender what drinks you like and he will choose, or per­haps de­sign, some­thing to sat­isfy and tit­il­late your palate.

The new sig­na­ture cock­tail menu shows a quirky sense of hu­mour. The pitch black Scar­lett was in­spired by Scar­lett Jo­hans­son and hints at her mys­tique, dan­ger and al­lure with an in­trigu­ing mix of char­coal-in­fused gin, cherry bit­ters, ab­sinthe and sparkling wine topped with a cherry. Sur­pris­ingly dry on the tongue, Scar­lett slips down eas­ily and packs a punch.

An­other movie-in­spired drink is Dead­pool, a won­drously de­li­cious com­bi­na­tion of rums, whisky, rasp­berry syrup, ap­erol, lime juice, bit­ters and rose­mary, ac­com­pa­nied by a tiny Dead­pool fig­ure slouch­ing in the glass.

What­ever your cock­tail choice, be it a sim­ple ne­groni or a Red Vel­vet “cake in a glass”, Baker Street So­cial's bar­tenders will look af­ter you.

Si­t­u­ated above Shear­lock Bar­ber­shop, op­po­site Metis, Baker Street So­cial is open Mon­day to Satur­day from 8PM to 2AM.
