A six-seat audiophile bar, made from reclaimed timber and recycled foam, is the focal point. Taken from mattress offcuts, the terrazzo-look foam is sustainable and strategic, enhancing the acoustics and allowing the sound system to operate at its best.
From 1970s Indonesian disco and psych to Japanese jazz and new-age, a library of obscure records offers a resource of sounds for daily selectors to play under the soft pink neon light which gently illuminates the space.
With little to separate DJ and guest, the small but welcoming setting recollects a friend’s living room more than a club, and is ideally suited to deep listening due to the clarity of the sound. A pop-up bar offers a ‘local only’ selection of wine and beer, supporting producers on the island. Programmes at the studio include sustainability workshops, record launches, film and art projects.

A British-born DJ, producer and all-around edit king, Mark Seven became entranced by dance music in the ‘90s, during the height of the Acid House movement. A legend in the making, he is definitely not to miss when he comes to Potato Head Beach Club’s bar deck for Night Moves on 28 July.
Hitting the bar deck at Potato Head Beach Club on 22 July is the absolute icon Tony Humphries.
