    THE IRON FARIES: Seminyak *Best New Restaurants December 2023 In Bali

    What Happens When Fire Meets Fantasy

    The Iron Fairies have landed in Bali alongside Seminyak's Jl. Petitenget. This new hotspot for high-end entertainment captivates through stunning industrial design, tasty comfort food, signature cocktails, live music and more. Both kids and adults will discover an otherworldly sanctuary within The Iron Fairies' walls.

    The Bali venue marks the largest Iron Fairies branch thanks to interior designer Ashley Sutton's award-winning vision. His fantasy-inspired decor transfers guests into a reimagined Western Australian mine where miners once forged iron fairies from ore. Hand-hewn timber, leather upholstery and iron furnishings echo the rugged charm of subterranean workshops.

    While families dine on innovative bites, "steampunk" accents like customized machinery offer interactive glimpses into this fictional miner narrative. And the twelve resident fairies, represented through sculptures with unique personalities, seem to playfully keep watch, bringing a touch of magic to the industrial ambience.

    The Iron Fairies crafts an experience beyond just drinks and meals. Every evening from 7PM onward, both lower and mezzanine seating areas come alive through DJ beats, live music and possible mischief from the venue's fairy hosts.

    OAKBERRY: Ubud *Best New Restaurants December 2023 In Bali

    Acai Fruits, Straight from Amazon to Bali

    Oakberry Acai Ubud brings vibrant plant-based goodness to central Bali. This little health haven uses nature's bounty to craft scrumptious superfood blends that make wholesome feel indulgent.

    Oakberry uses antioxidant-rich acai berries straight from the Amazon rainforest rather than syrupy substitutes. Kickstart your day with the sunshine-hued "Sunrise" smoothie enlightened by pineapple and mango.

    Beyond acai, the menu brims with lighter options, too - from detoxifying green smoothies to the hazelnut and banana-fueled "Nutella Dreams" toast. And community matters here as well. The communal tables invite friendly conversation while rooftop yoga overlooking rice paddies cultivates deeper connection.

    Recently opened, this place is a must try in December. Visitations allowed from 9AM to 9PM.
