Club Hopping

Well, things seem to be on the move again at Bali’s first private members club, the Canggu Club. Last week I attended the launch of their fabulous new poolside bar, aptly named the Sunset Lounge. Designed by gorgeous New Caledonian Stephane LeBaube of On the Other Side designs, the bar adds a wonderful new appeal to the club. Located under a timber pergola on the decks of the 25-meter pool with banquette-style seating and oversized cabanas to lounge in, it’s the perfect place to hang out and dip with a crew for those morning Bloody Marys or sunset Mohijtos. A fashion show by Rhapsody (on another floating stage over the pool) and DJ Cozi got the poolside crowd in the groove as cocktails, canapés and the social set of Bali circulated to meet newly appointed General Manager Jean-Philippe Bernard (aka JP). The suave French native is new to Bali but has lived in Jakarta, where he previously managed the sports club ISCI, the Financial Club and the Mercantile Club. Also new to the club is young Australian Executive Chef Brad Harrison, who headed premier establishments in Noosa before being enticed to share his culinary mastery at the club. After sampling the brilliant new cuisine and sunset lounge beverages, I think these boys might be on a winner!
