BARONG ZOM­BIE

Have you been to Potato Head Beach Club yet? What was I think­ing – of course you have. Af­ter all, it’s only the best beach club on the is­land. With its iconic de­sign, punchy tip­ples, deca­dently de­li­cious dishes, great playlists and fab­u­lous beach­front lo­ca­tion, it’s no won­der beau­ti­ful peo­ple keep flock­ing to this place (es­pe­cially its refreshing swim­ming pool!). Re­cently the club has been gen­er­at­ing a Poly­ne­sian tiki-style am­bi­ence, vis­i­ble in the dé­cor of their reg­u­larly pump­ing par­ties and sun­set ses­sions.

The tiki fun doesn’t stop there though, as they have also in­cor­po­rated the con­cept into the drinks. Look for the Ex­ot­ica sec­tion in the menu, which lists drinks in­spired by the world of tiki but with refreshing In­done­sian twists. The cock­tails boast flavours from the In­done­sian archipelago, and are served in lo­cally crafted cups with in­dige­nous leaves and flow­ers.

My favourite is the Barong Zom­bie (al­though af­ter my third glass, it’s kind of hard to choose). Potato Head Beach Club puts a Bali twist on a clas­sic Zom­bie cock­tail by Donn Beach – a pioneer of tiki cock­tail cul­ture – in the 1930s, by in­clud­ing arak in the mix. With a name like Barong Zom­bie (Barong is be­lieved to be the king of spir­its in Ba­li­nese mythol­ogy), it’s only nat­u­ral to take a sip of this one to com­plete my in­tox­i­cat­ing Bali af­ter­noon.
