Mexican drug lord Oscar Nava Valencia A.K.A. El Lobo probably had so much money he wanted to be like Nigo or Pharrell and bling out more than his grill or neck piece.  What would be the next trend for drug cartel bosses? Oh yes, bling out your artillery.

The World’s Coolest New Bar

Posted in Luxury Hotels, Luxury Lifestyle with tags , , , , , on December 18, 2009 by The Goodie Bag

The world’s coolest new bar has just opened at the ultra-luxe Ayana Resort & Spa in Bali.  To get to the Rock Bar, towering 46 feet above the crashing waves, you have to take a special lift that traverses the face of a dramatic craggy seaside cliff.  There are uninterrupted, 360-degree views on all sides in a setting any Bond villain would love.  Designed by Yasuhiro Koichi of Japan‘s Design Studio SPIN, it’s an enviable feat of engineering, architecture and mixology.  Designed to ensure maximum seclusion for every guest, the Ayana’s 78 free-standing, cliff-top luxury villas are set in traditional Balinese compounds with private pools surrounded by tropical gardens.
