Feature Friday: MAMA San Kitchen Bar Lounge, Bali

Mama San Kitchen Bar Lounge in Bali is the first of its kind. Placing a restaurant, lounge and cooking school under one roof is proving to be a huge success. Will Meyrick envisioned the large empty warehouse to be more than just a restaurant. His goal was to have "an environment where people can feel comfortable to eat, try their hand at cooking or just lounge in a bar." The warehouse or "gudang" was divided into two stories where guests can leisurely dine downstairs, toast to a drink upstairs and move on to a bit of cooking lessons immediately after. 
The majority of restaurants in Bali are open-air and provide no escape from the heat and humidity. Diners who visit Mama San will find themselves in air conditioned comfort, inviting them to stay as long as they wish. Besides the luxury of A/C, Mama San is beautifully designed and a treat for the eyes. 
The overall design of the large warehouse is surprisingly warm and comforting. Mah-jong marble top tables are pushed up against long caramel leather chesterfield sofas that are flanked by red floor lamps and old framed photos cover the walls behind. A larger than life Mama San overlooks guests as they dine downstairs. These vintage details create a sense of aged beauty and warmth, as if you just walked into your grandmothers home.  As Will Meyrick says “the interior is a feast for the eyes, while the food is a feast for the soul.”
Mama San’s Asian menus include an array of culture and flavor. Featuring Chinese, Indonesian, Indian, Malay, Singaporean, Thai, Cambodian and Vietnamese.
Access to the upstairs lounge and cooking school is provided by two large staircases that frame the bar downstairs. The black staircase pressed up against the brick wall provide the industrial feel, reminding you that you truly are in a warehouse.
The upstairs area of Mama San speaks out in a soft yet masculine tone. Leather club chairs, amber tones and dim lighting create an upscale gentlemen's club atmosphere. The upstairs bar sits next to the cooking school, creating an interesting mix of personalities... those who are eager to drink and kick back and those who are eager to taste and learn.
Even the restrooms provide a unique experience with its co-ed washbasin.
In addition to dining downstairs, drinking upstairs and joining in cooking lessons, guests can purchase wines from the wine room and keep the party going at home. Talk about a full day of indulging in fine food, drink and relaxation!
