The best of bali nightlife

hellobali Guide to Bali - - ISLAND NIGHTLIFE - Text: Re­bekah E Moore

To the more than four mil­lion vis­i­tors land­ing an­nu­ally, Bali is pre­dom­i­nantly ped­dled as a trop­i­cal idyll where one passes lazy days on tran­quil beaches or strolling cas­cad­ing rice fields in the hills. But for the last two decades, it has also been one of South­east Asia’s pre­em­i­nent party des­ti­na­tions, popular with both the Jakar­tan up­per crust week­ender and Aussie coed on re­cess. But the in­fa­mous Kuta night­clubs, with their pound­ing jun­gle, house, and drum and bass grooves played for sweaty, scant­ily-clad bod­ies are not the Al­pha and Omega of Bali’s nightlife.

For an is­land of less than 6,000 square kilo­me­tres, Bali is teem­ing with noc­tur­nal plea­sures, from the store­front bar to mul­ti­storey club gi­ant. Yet with so much to tempt one’s bac­cha­na­lian taste buds, how does one choose the best lo­cale to wine, dine, and dance after dark? Herein is your go-to guide to the best of Bali’s nightlife, whether you have a pen­chant for a pint or prance on the dance floor.
