King Cole Bar At The St. Regis Bali Resort

King Cole Bar At The St. Regis Bali Resort

The St. Regis Bali Resort is the epitome of suave chic and sophisticated elegance and its King Cole Bar is a perfect reflection of this. Light, airy and with a welcoming ambience, guests can choose whether to take advantage of the tropical ocean breeze and sit outside on the terrace with views across the tranquil garden to the sea, or to sit in air-conditioned comfort in the comfortable lounge or at the bar.

Renowned for upholding tradition and rituals, the décor at King Cole Bar is a delightful combination of classic style with a distinct sense of place through the hand-crafted Indonesian artefacts and art. In fact, the prized seating spots, found in the lounge and on the terrace, are the traditional four-poster Javanese daybeds with their intriguing carvings.

Offering live piano music during the Classic Afternoon Tea Ritual and live jazz each evening, as well as perfect views of the nightly Fire Ritual at sunset, King Cole Bar is an enjoyable venue whether you are looking to relax over a holiday cocktail, indulge in some of the excellent Champagnes from the extensive award-winning cellar, have a business meeting over drinks or perch at the bar and discuss vintages, premium spirits and cocktail recipes with the talented bar team.

During The Champagne Hours, a treat available every day of the week, the King Cole Bar presents, by request only, the dramatic sabrage ritual, in which the sommelier opens a bottle of Champagne with the sweeping flourish of a traditional Indonesian dagger known as a Kris. This rarely seen talent is taken very seriously at The St. Regis Bali Resort and features at its most prestigious events.

Of course, the bar team take drinks very seriously, crafting proper martinis, island-inspired cocktails shaken with fresh-squeezed juice, and, continuing the legacy of the original King Cole Bar in New York, a selection of Bloody Marys for guests’ sipping pleasure, including the resort’s very own Bali Mary, a spicy concoction of Absolut vodka peppar, jicama, cucumber, brown sugar, tomato juice, lemon and a secret mix of spices.

“At King Cole Bar, we always keep in mind that we need to provide excellent service and exceed guest expectations.”

The resort’s head bartender is Balinese-born Ida Bagus Kartika Ariana, who has been with The St. Regis Bali Resort from the very beginning on the pre-opening team. He shares, “What I love the most about being a bartender is interacting with guests. At King Cole Bar, we always keep in mind that we need to provide excellent service and exceed guest expectations. I love to recommend the Bali Mary to our guests because of its composition; it is made of a popular Indonesian fruit salad called rujak, which gives the cocktail a unique taste. It’s one of our signature cocktails and can be enjoyed at any time!”.
