The Butchers Club Bali broke grounds early 2015 at the hard-to-miss corner of Jalan Cendrawasih and Petitenget in Seminyak. Its eye-catching street-side patio with alfresco setups is guarded by a makeshift driftwood mascot with colourful patches naming the main cuts, slightly reminiscent of Gladys the Swiss Dairy Cow. You’ll instantly know that beef is the main draw here.
The key factor, however, is the signature dry-aged beef they use in all their burgers. First debuted in Hong Kong two years prior to much praise, The Butchers Club brings and pulls off well with this specialty to the highly diverse Seminyak dining scene in Bali. With a dry-ageing facility off-site, this restaurant uses premium cuts with Black Angus beef brought in directly from its own farm Down Under.

Inside are cosy corners laid out with rustic black steel frame and timber-top table setups, and adjacent is a main semi-open kitchen where the succulent morsels are prepared to order. Here, the kitchen guys whip up recipes created by foodie, butcher, fishmonger and restaurateur Jonathan Glover. Rumps, chucks and briskets are dry-aged up to 45 days and marinated in a secret sauce before passing through the grinder.
Without fuss, you can go straight for the signature burger (IDR 140,000), which gets you a medium rare, dry-aged Black Angus patty topped with cheddar, gorgeously glazed strips of bacon, pickles, and tomato and onion slices. The homemade buns are fresh and plump, sinking firmly with every squeeze and bite. Served on the sides are tasty, triple-fried duck-fat fries.
For an element of surprise, dig into their ‘secret menu’, with rotating specials that you can preview via a QR code scan off the menu with your smartphone. We notice a ‘Return of the Mac’, which seems quite a stack (we’ll help keep it a secret for now). You can opt for a spot at the kitchen counter to witness your secret burger being built freshly from scratch. The Double Happiness (IDR 220,000), duple the pleasure of the original signature, towers with a knife stabbing firmly through it.
Those looking for a non-beef treat will love the Captain Ahab (IDR 160,000). This panko-breaded barramundi fillet, topped with homemade tartar sauce and a spicy coleslaw, eclipses any fish burger we ever had. Our hungry party shares slices around, and the totally unique Wu Tang turns out as winner. This flavoursome burger features the original patty, fried in Sriracha sauce and topped with soft cheese, zesty Korean kimchi, kewpie mayonnaise, and a generous wedge of sweet potato tempura. Heavenly clash of textures and flavours follow each awesomely sloppy bite.
The usual brands of soft drinks, plus root beer, floats and root beer floats, are among the drink selections, and there’s Bintang and Jack Daniel’s cola slushy (IDR 65,000) that go well with the beefy meals. Your scan will also reveals additional beers, including Albens English and mango cider, as well as Shearwater wines by the bottle.
