The Most Romantic Bar in the World – contest!

What a great idea… designers were invited to tender for the Most Romantic Bar in the World – and it was gonna be in my hometown of Ubud (even though I’ve recently heard that the idea has been postponed).

Bridges restaurant already has great charm, a wonderful romantic location, superb food and wine and excellent service.  However,  they also have a downstairs area that isn’t used at the moment and they want to turn it into the Most Romantic Bar in the World and so now the race is on to find the designer, for what must be: the most romantic job in the world!

The would be designers have to complete an initial form that includes great questions like ‘What does “romance” mean to you?  They are also asked how they would ‘ensure that a single person walking into the Most Romantic Bar in the World does not feel singled out’.

The contest was launched on Valentine’s Day and they aim to open the Most Romantic Bar in the World on Valentine’s Day next year – guess where I’m gonna be on 14 Feb 2013? (Actually since writing this, I’ve found out that the project is on hold, but I hope it will be reinstated soon)

Meanwhile, I was at Bridges just a few days ago and here are some mouthwatering pictures from that evening:

One of the most impressive aspects of eating there is the service… there were five of us and our meals were delivered by five waiters – all at once… and they all placed the plate on the table at exactly the same time.  This will happen even if you are in a party of 10.

hmmm… I wonder what speciality cocktails they will have in The Most Romantic Bar in the World

  1. I love the idea of everyone’s dinner arriving at once. They must have a HUGE staff! How many times have we read reviews of restaurants where the food was described in glowing terms but service got a thumbs down? Exceptional service is a dying art and if they can offer that consistently people will be lining up to dine there.
