Melbourne’s Favourite Coffee ST. ALi Hits Bali’s Shores

Cool Sh*t, Melbourne / 20 April 2024

Melbourne’s beloved coffee roastery, ST. ALi, has opened in Bali with its newest outpost at the FURTHER HOTEL in Pererenan.

The new ST. ALi space marries the beloved Melbourne coffee culture with the rich, communal spirit of Bali. The venue itself, a perfect meld of design and ambiance, offers both locals and travellers a serene backdrop to enjoy world-class coffee and exquisite culinary offerings in a uniquely inviting setting.

A Fresh Brew in a New Locale

Nestled in the up-and-coming district of Pererenan, ST. ALi’s new venue is perfectly situated on the ground floor of the recently opened FURTHER HOTEL. Known for its innovative hotel concept that integrates into the local community, the hotel offers a unique backdrop for ST. ALi to share its coffee culture and esteemed menu. “The immersive culture and burgeoning food scene in Pererenan provides the ideal environment for our expansion,” noted CEO Lachlan Ward.

Collaboration and Culture

The launch of ST. ALi in Bali is not just about serving coffee; it’s about creating a community. In collaboration with FURTHER HOTEL and Common Grounds, a local roasting partner, ST. ALi is set to cater to the eclectic mix of surfers and travellers drawn to this picturesque part of Bali. Simon Digby, Co-Founder of FURTHER HOTEL, expressed his enthusiasm, “Integrating Melbourne’s rich coffee scene into Pererenan is truly a dream realised.”

Melbourne Flavours with a Balinese Twist

Overseeing the culinary direction, Executive Chef Daniel Dobra, affectionately known as ‘Dobbers’, has moved to Bali to ensure the authenticity and quality of the food mirror the Melbourne experience. The cafe will serve all-day breakfast and lunch, featuring favourites like ‘Dobber’s Pancakes’ and new additions such as ‘Tapioca Pudding’ and a ‘Royale With Cheese’ beef burger. “We aim to bring our iconic Melbourne brunch to Pererenan, offering both familiar tastes and new indulgences,” stated Dobra.

A Design That Tells a Story

The aesthetic of the ST. ALi Bali venue draws significant inspiration from the quirky and meticulous style of filmmaker Wes Anderson, with a decor that features terracotta tones, marble tables, and khaki green rugs. This design is the brainchild of award-winning Australian architecture studio MORQ and Melbourne-based Fivefold, ensuring every corner reflects a fusion of creativity and comfort.

Connect and Experience

For those eager to experience this blend of Melbourne coffee culture with Balinese charm, ST. ALi Bali is open daily from 6 am to 10 pm. Reservations are available via Whatsapp, and more details can be found on their website, ensuring every visitor can secure a spot at this exciting new venue.

Melbourne’s ST. ALi continues to make waves far beyond its home shores, proving that good coffee, when mixed with innovative design and cross-cultural collaboration, can create a unique and memorable experience for all.
