WHERE TO PARTY IN BALI
Ubud is less known for its parties and more known for its cultural experiences and tourist attractions. We didn’t party in Ubud but we heard CP Lounge is a good place to hang out in the evenings.
The more touristy cities (Canggu, Denpasar, Seminyak, anywhere down south) have a more lively nightlife because there are less locals living there and it is mainly tourists. My favorite was going to the beach clubs: Finns Beach Club & The Lawn. There is also Potato Head & The Rock Bar but we didn't have time to go. We would go to the beach clubs about an hour or 2 before sunset, swim, have a drink and meet new friends. We would watch the beautiful sunset and stay to party at night.
The Lawn is free to enter and has a very relaxed vibe. There is fake grass laid out with small tables where you can chill and have a drink while you watch the sunset. It gets very busy here so if you want a seat you should show up early otherwise you will be on the waiting list! There is also an infinity pool that goes onto the beach. On the side is a restaurant area with actual tables and servers. Drinks are expensive here.
I personally felt that Finns Beach Club was the best. It is also free to enter but the beds have a minimum charge to spend on drinks & shisha. Food is served as well but it is not included in your minimum spend. Drinks are expensive here too. After 7pm, all beds are free! There is a dance floor and things get more lively than at The Lawn
We also paid a visit to Sky Garden which has recently been voted Indonesia’s #1 club! There are 4 floors, each with different styles of music. It is 99,000IDR for entrance fee that includes an all you can eat buffet and all you can drink bar! (Until 9pm I believe). However, the food is not the best and the drinks are not strong. But you get what you pay for. Each floor and room has a different style of music. Lots of fun but you likely won’t meet any locals here.
