In one of the busiest streets in Seminyak – Bali, you can find a new speakeasy bar entices with crafty cocktails, scrumptious mouthfuls, Manina.
On Instagram account, Manina tells keen visitors to follow the smell of Bakso (Indonesian meatballs). And this will supposedly lead them to a Cendana meatball hawker, who will then show them the red door entrance of the new bar.
Manina is the latest from 8 Degree Projects (the Bali-based hospitality and lifestyle group that also houses Bo$$man Burger and Sisterfields Cafe).
By utilizing the unused space of fine-dining restaurant Bikini, which has been temporarily closed since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia, it provides a new experience of a speakeasy bar with a new array of tasty cocktails and scrumptious mouthfuls inspired by Bikini’s menu.
As information, these cocktails crafted by award-winning Arey Baker.
With COVID-19 restrictions in place, Manina only opens on Fridays and Saturdays, from 4 pm to 10 pm (though opening hours may change depending on official regulations), and have a 40 pax seating capacity.
