Ambar at Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve proudly unveils the new look of its fine bar and dining destination on 27th November 2022. Ambar which means sky in Sanskrit word is a haven for cocktail and gastronomy enthusiasts who seek an elevated experience and a sense of discovery in Ubud.
Adjacent to Mandapa’s Wantilan lobby, Ambar welcomes guests to an elegant open space decorated with wooden elements and surrounded by greenery. The new outdoor wooden deck takes a scenic moment to a new level overlooking the abundant lush forest of Mandapa village during the golden hour. Accommodating up to 60 people, Ambar is a celebration of the rich flavors of Bali paired with the traditional beverage and culinary techniques of Japan. It is a destination to explore the reimagined creativity behind the handcrafted cocktails and Japanese fusion gastronomy.
Ambar’s inspiring menu will ignite the tastebuds and is presented in various tasting options, from Belantara, an Ubud focused cocktail menu incorporating handpicked ingredients of the surrounding forest and Japanese drinking culture, to create a modern take on hyperlocal herbs, fruits, and spices, such as Yuzu Negroni, Sarapan Reviver and Koko Kohi. The Fruits of the Forest features a selection of classic cocktails, such as Lemon Grass Gin & Tonic which is a combination of unique twists and eclectic spirits including a range of Gin & Tonic’s and Tropical Aged Cocktails for guests to sample.
The Canopy Collection consists of a list of unique spirits that are the specialty of Ambar and which constantly evolve to keep creativity flowing. A diverse offering of international wines, curated craft beers, and non-alcoholic sippers also adorn the selection of drinks to be enjoyed.
Complementing the handcrafted cocktails, guests can indulge in the Japanese fusion gastronomy such as Udang Salad, crispy prawn topped with tonkatsu served with green soya olive oil, Toro Tartare, fatty tuna served with ginger, spring onion, egg yolk and avruga pearl, selections of Usuzukuri and Maki, as well as the sweet delights such as Matcha Mascarpone Cream Puff and Strawberry Mochi Ice Cream Sandwich.
The creative and unique concept of Ambar has been curated in collaboration with Singapore-based Proof Creative, an award-winning hospitality consultancy created by leaders and ambassadors for the Second Golden Age of Fine Drinking, anchored in the intersection of Balinese ingredients and Japanese culinary techniques. The specially crafted beverages are modern in approach, photogenic and refined, while focusing on Japanese methodology in the individual cocktail elements. New Japanese fusion cuisine such as Toro Tartar is one of the delightful must-try food available at Ambar that will elevate the dining experience for guests.
“We are excited to welcome everyone at Ambar, with the rejuvenated look and concept. Our vision for Ambar is to create a relaxing place with an elegant atmosphere to enjoy crafted cocktails before dinner, or to lounge and relax whilst watching the golden sunsets of Ubud accompanied by the soothing sound of live jazz music in the background. It is a destination that offers a bar experience like no other and we are thrilled to bring the very best to the Ubud drinking scene through Ambar.” said Masanori Hosoya, General Manager of Mandapa, a Ritz- Carlton Reserve.
