The Winner of Exquisite Awards 2022 – Best New Bar Bali: The Shady Flamingo
The latest establishment within the elusive Shady Family, a brilliant concept created by hospitality brand Tavolo Group, The Shady Flamingo takes guests to the decadent underworld of Los Angeles circa 1940s. Imagine the bootlegging scene with the infamous Genovese Family and America’s queen of the mob Betty Hood, and that’s The Shady Flamingo in a nutshell.
Just like the other bars under The Shady Family – namely The Shady Pig and The Shady Fox – this younger sister crafts top-notch experimental tipples to spin the thrilling stories of the intriguing underworld scene. Cleverly hidden on the second storey of a restaurant on the dynamic Petitenget street, The Shady Flamingo presents a seductive cocktail den imbued with the unmistakeable Hollywood glamour and the elusive gangster swag.
The hidden staircase takes you to a secluded lair, where an elaborate bar welcomes you at the door. The skilled team behind the bar is ready to greet you and concoct your tipple of choice. Take a seat on one of the plush sofas – maybe behind the DJ booth for a more intimate and hidden feel – and get happily lost in the night. The namesake flamingo can be seen on the stained glass at the end of the room, gracing the venue with its presence.
Before getting lost among the who’s who of the night scene, introduce yourself to Flamingo’s unforgettable cocktails. Take a sip of potent potions like Bugsy’s Old Fashioned with Wild Turkey 81, bitters and just a dash of sugar; Capone’s Negroni with Campari, Sweet Vermouth and Bombay Gin; or Marilyn’s Spritz with Bombay Gin, St. Germain Liqueur, mint and sparkling; as well as the Naked Alive with ginger-infused vodka, passion fruit, vanilla, coffee wine and citrus.
