Eat & Drink: The Plantation Grill & Sling Bar Refers to Jay Gatsby

TRUE GRILL. What would happen if Jay Gatsby from “The Great Gatsby” came to Bali and set up a posh eatery? The Plantation Grill & Sling Bar (Double-Six Luxury Hotel, 66 Double Six Beach, Seminyak, Bali; +62 361 734 300; comes pretty close.





The brainchild of famed Australian restaurateur Robert Marchetti, this 1920s-styled eatery boasts a classy interior and serves up a wealth of delicious offerings. Luxurious leather booths make a fitting setting for the wood-fired meat cuts and grilled seafood, while the main bar area whips up cocktails along with lobster rolls or burgers. Post-dinner, head upstairs for wicked martinis at the Sling Bar. And for the Jay Gatsbys of today, there is a secret door that leads to a private “boudoir,” perfect for some undisturbed privacy.
