Inspired by Tokyo’s dimly-lit, low-key listening venues, Studio Eksotika is the latest audiophile concept by the creatives behind Potato Head Family.

The focal point of the space is a six-seat bar is made from reclaimed timber and recycled foam that is taken from mattress offcuts and is both sustainable and strategic in that it enhances the acoustics, allowing for the sound system to sound its absolute best.

The space is small but welcoming and feels more like a friend’s living room than a club and is best suited for deep listening. The music selection is provided by a library of obscure records that offers selectors a chance to play anything from 1970s Indonesian disco and psych to Japanese jazz and new-age under a soft pink light.

The pop-up bar offers only wine and beer, locally sourced to support the island’s producers.

The intimate and music-focused experience can be found just steps from Potato Head Beach Club and Katamama Hotel, neighboring 1/15 coffee shop and Canaan.

Studio Eksotika is open from 5pm until midnight, every day except Tuesday. Future programmes at the studio will include sustainability workshops, record launches, film and art projects.
