La Favela Bar and Restaurant in Bali welcomes you to a different kind of bar and dining scene on Seminyak’s main Kayu Aya road. Since opening in 2013, it has become very popular thanks to its quirky vintage design, drawing much inspiration from the namesake urban scenes of Rio, hence its name. It’s open for lunch and dinner, but most come late and stay on for its chilled vibes, when the heavily decorated dining rooms and cosy corners look their best, each with different sets of antiques and art from the owner’s personal collection.
Entering La Favela, you are greeted to semi-indoor gardens covered by dense foliage, with artificial waterfalls and ponds and alfresco tables and chairs laid out beyond a mini bridge. Inside is its bar and lounge, with walls heavily adorned with funky old clocks and picture frames. La Favela was first meant to be a rooftop spot, since that’s how favelas usually are. The concept came with the idea that to enjoy real beauty is to be able to see the imperfections. This meant messy roofs with antennae and whatnot, so they attractively covered a part of their roof with old kiddie tricycles. Read More...
