Down a random, albeit pretty quaint, alley in Seminyak, through a manned door, into an underground, speakeasy vibed cafe, is where you’ll find some of the best coffee I tried whilst in Bali. Revolver is the hipsteriest of the hipster and I loves it! The interior is thought out from corner to corner, with an upstairs and a kind of secret second cafe bar. From the pursian rugs, to the fragmented mirrors donning the walls, everything encompasses a artsy, pretentious aesthetic, all part of your coffee drinking experience. I went for an almond iced latte and my friend for a tell tale long black. Both of us left satisfied. As much as I loved the coffee aspect (when am I not overjoyed about good coffee?) the place itself lived up to the high expectations Australia has taught me about how coffee should be made and experienced. The music is alternate guitar based and upbeat. The reading material stretching from local newspapers, to quirky beautifully produced magazines, to an outdated (only just) copy of the Sydney Morning Herald. I fell in love with Belly magazine, a surf/urban culture magazine straight out of Kuta. The interviews were actually interesting, carried out with fascinating and talented individuals overlooked by most popular magazines. On the way out are printed T-shirts, product of a highly anticipated spot to visit. It’s a great place for a sit and cool down and perfect if you’re slightly homesick from Sydney and its coffee culture. It is a very western thing I’ll admit but its uniqueness makes it a worth while addition to your Bali bucket list. If you need a spot to catch up on some work, or an inspiring place to update your blog and edit some photo’s it makes stopping off at a coffee shop while you’re on one of the most beautiful islands slightly more excusable.
