Description: A BON-VIVANT'S MANSION HOUSING AN AWARD-WINNING COCKTAIL BAR, named Best Bar in Bali 2013 by the Yak magazine. The bar is all comfy sofas, leather-clad armchairs, golden-framed mirrors, and red velvet curtains - helmed with a dramatic crystal chandelier, reminiscent of London's gentlemen's clubs. The bar offers a delicious tapas menu together with an extensive list of whiskies and signature cocktails custom-created for Charlie by the international mixologist Carson Quinn. On certain nights, the bar becomes a happening club-lounge, known for playing some of the best electronic music on the island. Be sure to check out the events schedule.

“Great place for a bite, a full meal or just for drinks.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

I've been to Charlie few times recently and it's one of my fav places to hang out in Seminyak, Petitenget area.
Quick lunch, afternoon cake, late dinner or just to enjoy few drinks (more than a few usually) at the upstairs bar with friends are possible in this magnificent 3 floors bakery, resto, bar, lounge and club.
The air conditioning is a plus in Bali's tropical heat and music is usually perfectly selected to accompany conversations.
Wine list is complete and reasonably priced.
Liquors are not spoiled and hangovers are smooth.
Fresh baked bread it's also a specialty...outlet is open since early morning to take away.
Thanks Charlie guys/girls.

“Must to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Every time I come to Bali tons of new places spring up but Charlie stands in the league of its own. Once I stepped in, I forgot where I was – the place could be anywhere from London to Hong Kong. The environment is rather laid-back and welcoming, with a retro feel to it - multiple levels with custom-made furniture, impressive crystal chandelier centerpiece, candles and velvet curtains upstairs. We had Duck Three Ways and Lamb Loin for dinner – both were delicious. The wine list has many Italian wines, reasonably priced by local standards. We also really liked the music. We love a place with a soul, and will not hesitate to recommend Charlie.

“Loved the place! great food, cocktails, vibe and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Been in Charlie for a brunch, were amazed not only by the food but by the venue and the service. Excellent bloody marys, Japanese is highly recommended.
After a week we returned for a diner, had really great time - the vibe and atmosphere, food, everything was perfect. Loved my See the Sea salad! Definitely coming back!

“If you don't like smokers - don't go here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The place si wee done, food is good, drink are indeeed okay but if you don'tlike smoke-infested bars and especially restaurants then DON'T go to Charlies. It is over-powering on all floors from top to bottom, inside out. Why they don't make top floor only for smokers is anyone's guess. Bad luck really cos it is quite a nice place. My freinds and I wont go back.

Ivan_Katanaev, Owner at Charlie, responded to this review, October 9, 2013
Dear denpasar52 we are sorry to hear that you found the bar uncomfortably smokey, therefore, we would like to point out that our ground floor is fully non-smoking which we set up specifically for our non-smoking patrons to enjoy the smoke-free environment any time day or night. Hope you will come back and try it out.
