Lockdown syndrome is real, but surely you’ve noticed how a knock at the door and a booze delivery can put a smile on your dial in an instant? Sad but true; you’ve spent WAY too much time at home, the drive you had when this crisis first hit, all the plans you dreamed up, seem to have wound down under the weight of TV and takeaway. Try as you might, resisting the urge to whip up a cocktail, open a cold beer or savour a nice glass of wine with dinner is often the brightest light at the end (or beginning, oops) of the day. Resistance is futile and luckily your bar never has to run dry with these flashy players who can be at your door in as little as half an hour. That’s service, that’s fabulous. If you’ve got any friends left (on the island I mean) then call them up and let’s get this party started.
The Boogaloo Bali is your 24 hour, 7 day-a-week alcohol delivery service. They don’t just deliver the goods (well, they can), but can also provide pop-up bars staffed with your very own bartender, just in time for your coming-out party or that sneaky celebration. The Boogaloo Bali keeps their shelves stocked with your favourite spirits of top imported and local brands. Pick from an impressive selection of gins, tequilas, whiskeys, rums, and vodkas and of course the bubbles.

Originally GypsyLand launched the largest techno festival in Bali, an annual event looked forward to by many across the globe. Sadly, the festival isn’t happening this year BUT they now have an online alcohol delivery bringing the party to your door. Their ready–made cocktails come in all shapes and sizes (our favourite is the lychee martini) that arrive in cute bottles, that remind me of Alice in Wonderland. Very fitting. They are 24/7 delivery, contactable on whatsapp with all the payment methods.

Based in the heart of Ubud, some say Room 4 Dessert serves some of the best cocktails on the island, expertly blended by their master mixologist. Each cocktail has been carefully created, tried and tested in their ‘lab’, to make sure the flavours sing with voices of all the personalities behind the ravishing dessert bar. Our boss’ favourite is the Manhattan Sour, transporting her right back to the seedy jazz bars of Greenwich Village. We’ll have to take her word for that. Check out their deliriously good Take-out menus to make a meal out of this dial-up delivery service.
