The Best Bars in Bali

24 February 2017

From beachside cantinas and laid-back pubs to swanky lounges and pumping clubs, bustling Bali has more bars than you can shake a cocktail umbrella at. So whether you’re in the mood for a quiet sundowner, ice-cold Bintang, exotic cocktail or sophisticated whisky, we’ve put together a list of some the top spots in Bali to grab a drink. Cheers!


Beach Side Bars in Bali

It’s no surprise that Bali has some of the best beach-side bars in the world. Hop on a cable car and enjoy the stunning sea view as you head down the steep cliffs of Ungasan to Karma Beach Club. Not to be outdone, Uluwatu Surf Point offers its own jaw-dropping views with the ancient Uluwatu Temple as its backdrop. Perched on the rocks with plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from, it’s easy to see why this is such a popular spot for surfers and beach lovers. For something a little more upbeat, don’t miss sundowners at vibey Single Fin, a cliff-top bar and lounge featuring live music and DJ sessions – plus a chance to watch some night surfing! Or chill out on comfy daybeds beside the sparkling pool as you enjoy organically grown nosh and ice-cold beers at chic Komune.

On top of the world

Grab a cocktail, kick back and enjoy the air up there at these breathtaking rooftop bars. At the very top of the all-suite boutique U Paasha Hotel in Seminyak, you’ll find a sparkling swimming pool, cosy loungers, designer margaritas and some of the best sunsets you’ve ever seen. Stick around for monthly highlights featuring international mixologists and live acts. Keen for some gourmet tapas to go with your designer drinks? Head to Luna Rooftop Bar where three unique private dining areas, including a Japanese teppanyaki bar, Balinese style eatery and fancy banquet room, await. Gaze out over Jimbaran Bay as you tuck into fresh a seafood barbeque at Smoqee Lounge and Sky Bar. Or head to scenic Anantara Seminyak Resort featuring a stunning glass-bordered edge with uninterrupted views of the beach. Grab a signature cocktail and stick around for a live DJ session while the sun sets.  


In the club

Feel like a fancy night out? KuDeTa in Legian is the place to see and be seen. Put on your party shoes and get ready to dance the night away at their famous themed parties. Next up, surround yourself with colourful cocktails, mouth-watering food and banging electro beats at Cocoon – one of the best party bars on Legian Beach. Mirror Lounge and Bar is a sight to behold with its glittering décor, dazzling laser shows, gothic cathedral vibe and hard-core dance music. Then swing by wild Woobar where the name is just as fun as it sounds! Step through the leafy green forest entrance and into a world of lofty sky decks, beautiful party people, international DJs on a revolving dance floor and much more.


Out of the ordinary

If you’re bored of the regular bar vibe, try some of these unusual bars in Bali. Sip champagne, check out the quirky art installations and kick back in the chic Jacuzzi at Legian’s H8S Rooftop. Just like the name says, Bamboo Bar is made entirely from bamboo where you can swing on cradle seats while sipping drinks and admiring the amazing architecture. Need a trim? Spruce up your look at the BARber where you can get a stylish haircut while sipping your favourite tipple. Or drift away on a floating platform at Puri Santrian Bar. For something really different, head to punk-rock Pretty Poison, a one-of-a-kind bar where you can grab a drink and show off your skills at the skateboard park.
