Bali’s once sleepy hilltop community of Ubud is enlivened by these four venues

Seniman

Seniman-Interior

The warmly lit interior of Seniman Coffee Studio.

With a name meaning “artist” in Indonesian, Seniman earns its artistic chops with a thoughtfully curated interior and coffee served in design objects. Co-founders Rodney Glick, David Sullivan, and their team of roasters travel to the ends of Indonesia to bring together a selection of the best national beans they can get their hands on. Sip the select brews in the comfort of repurposed rocking chairs, created by the in-house Seniman Industries team. Enjoy coffee served on custom paddles and even hand-cut recycled glass bottles in whimsical patterns. Across the street, discover the shop’s roaster-cum-cold brew bar. Don’t know what a cold brew bar is? Here, beans are processed for 12 to 20 hours in room temperature and cold water to produce a strong concentrate. For a crowd favorite try the single-origin chocolate shake or the cold-brewed teas paired with tropical fruits and vegetables. The shop buzzes with Ubud’s intellectual type giving new meaning to the saying coffee and conversation.
