Bali’s iconic ‘grande dame’ hotel The Legian Seminyak is aiming to take its place among Asia’s legendary bars under the wing of globally renowned consultancy Proof Creative.
The creative cocktail team behind some of Asia’s 50 Best Bars is now curating elixirs for the legendary 5-star resort’s beautiful beachside Ocean Bar.
Proof Creative has pioneered the ‘Second Golden Age of Fine Drinking’ since establishing its flagship 28 HongKong Street among the most influential in Asia. They have won the top 1 of Asia’s 50 Best Bars and is consistently listed in the World’s 50 Best Bars.
The consultancy is waving its magical mixology wand at the Ocean Bar – introducing an extraordinarily curated portfolio of premium, craft, independent and award-winning spirits to unique photogenic cocktails bursting with meticulously infused flavours of the sun-kissed Mediterranean.
Mesmerising instagrammable icons range from St Tropez Summer blending venerated Sipsmith Dry Gin with elderflower, cucumber juice and sparkling prosecco, to Trip to Tuscany, with hibiscus-infused blanco with Vermouth and pomegranate.
Normandy Skies marries cognac with Maraschino cherry liqueur and green apple; Amalfi Coast blends luxury vodka Absolut Elyx and Italian bitter aperitif Aperol with passion fruit.
Bay of Marseille is a sultry rendezvous of Havana Club rum, cinnamon, coconut water and floral French dry vermouth; Costa Brava Plantation infuses dark rum with tangerine, chili honey and prosecco.
Cote D’Azur celebrates Taittinger Champagne, with legendary Mancino Secco vermouth, French rose and nutmeg; and Primavera Cup mixes thyme-infused Aperol with Muscat liqueur, lime and grapefruit.
Rounding up the drinks menu are classic cocktails, refreshing lower alcohol spritzes, selected old and new world champagnes and wines, and a sharp list of local and international beers to enjoy all-day libations.
Hans Joerg Meier, managing director of LHM Hotels says, “Combined with a chilled vibe and unparalleled location on one of Bali’s finest beaches, Ocean Bar is now setting a new benchmark for stylish and chilled cocktail bars among the stylish beach locations of Seminyak, the island’s most fashionable destination.”
