Peels Records launches new collaborative space

Bandung-based Peels Records is back with its new collaborative space that fuses music, art and signature cocktails. Named ‘Peels Pocket Bar’, it’s a listening room that will present an annual rotating concept for its art pieces and furniture design, creating a novel experience for its visitors each year. Just when you thought Bandung couldn’t get any cooler.

Settling within a restored Dutch colonial heritage building, Peels Pocket Bar was founded under the notion of collaboration; something most of us came to realise is of great importance, especially since thrust upon by the pandemic. With a curation of homegrown artists stocked up for future projects, the uniquely conceptualised space has chosen Arin Sunaryo and Dendy Darman to showcase their work and ideas for its initial décor.

Both creatives contribute to Peels Pocket Bar’s electrifying yet comforting blue tone throughout. Arin Sunaryo furthers the avant-garde ambience with his vision of distorted TV abstraction, adding a touch of the eclectic. This is then balanced out by Dendy Darman’s royal blue low chairs that are a twist on retro mid-century ones.

The new collaborative section at Dago 113 has been in operation since Saturday May 14 2022, and also features a tailored variation of cocktails along with attentively-curated sake exclusive to Peels Pocket Bar.

Reservations are a must since seats are limited. After all, it does pride itself on being an intimate space. More updates on Peels Pocket Bar here.
