Going In Deep With Attika


There's a new kid on the block, and it's up in the Attika! Nestled above the hustle-and-bustle of Oberoi and La Favela, there is a hidden bar & music spot called Attika which aims to attract a more sophisticated crowd with a super cool decor and genuine must-see resident DJs. We talked with Rossano Costella about Attika's promising foray into Bali's nightlife scene.



YOUR VENUE, LA FAVELA, IS SUPER POPULAR AMONGST MAINSTREAM PARTY PEOPLE AND TOURISTS AS IT PLAYS POPULAR REMIXES, CROWD-PLEASING OLD AND NEW COMMERCIAL TRACKS, SO HOW DO YOU SEE THAT ATTIKA WILL DIFFERENTIATE FROM WHAT’S HAPPENING DOWNSTAIRS? TELL US ABOUT YOUR CONCEPT?

There is no secret that La Favela has a reputation for over-the-top dining experience on the Island too. Featuring a tropical vintage décor that never goes out of style, Attika offers a far more intimate experience that expresses its gastronomy and drink culture and blends with the music to take it to a whole next level, more sophisticated on its own and speak-easy- ish. If these walls could talk, they'd tell lots of stories about some seriously good times.

WHO DO YOU ENVISION FREQUENTING ATTIKA…IS IT YOUR WAY OF ATTRACTING THE ISLANDS MUSIC AFICIONADOS?

Stay with an unparalleled music and nightlife scene, Attika draws casually refined locals and visitors who are looking to stay up late, from expats to globetrotters, young executive to adults craving for indulgement. Featuring the finest guest and collective residents DJs and producers who know what they’re doing, Attika attracts by itself.

DOES IT SHARE THE SAME ENTRANCE TO LA FAVELA?

Same main entrance but separate from La Favela, Attika is on the 3rd floor that you access via a hidden entrance.

WHAT’S THE VIBE YOU’RE GOING FOR WITH THE DECOR?

Not so different to La Favela, so scene-y but more like an alcove of  a red room, it’s sexy, and the bar and performance space fitted out with antiques from the metal and the wood elements, provokes a warmer atmosphere, and a 360° view over whats happening down below

TELL US ABOUT THE MENU AND YOUR SIGNATURE COCKTAILS?

Attika’s menu is an inspiring creation of our mixologist, Andrey Zakharov. Our goal is to wake your emotions and an “unexpected” experience over the sip. And it's not not only Attika’s signature cocktails and bites, but also a variety of premium and super premiums brands of spirits and liquors. On top of that we praise our amazing homemade liquors, tinctures and much more.

YOU SAID THAT YOU’LL BE OFFERING A BETTER MUSIC EXPERIENCE WITH ATTIKA, CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT THAT? WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC WILL YOU BE PLAYING THROUGHOUT THE WEEK AND WHO ARE YOUR MAIN RESIDENTS?

Attika has a narrow space on the dance floor, not so spacious but that’s the key, it’s all about intimacy and intense energy. When the DJs are playing, you can listen to a mixed bag of deep house, techno and progressive but also occasionaly other genres from all around the world, with international guests and local DJs. Take a note, the sound system works perfectly without smashing your ears.

Attika opens every night at 8 pm and live music starts at 9 pm. Twice a week, we have our residents DJ Bian and DJ Lalu, Mondays are “Nasty Mondays” with Los Brengos, every Wednesday is “Ladies on the Decks” with Dewinta and Alisa Musonova, and many guests DJs to play every weekend.
Not only about music, we are also planing on hosting international renowned bartenders behind the bar twice a month.
