Bali Nightlife has created stories for many travelers which they will never forget! A prominent province in Indonesia, Bali can offer a lot to travelers. You can enjoy nightlife in Southern Bali or bask in magnificent glory of pristine nature as you go up North. In this post, I will give you an idea about where to party in Bali and enjoy Bali Nightlife to the fullest!
Bali Nightlife is mainly concentrated in Southern Bali. From the Airport, you can reach the hot nightlife venues in Bali easily. You can check-in your accommodation and quickly leave to be enthralled by the glamorous Bali nightlife.
During my stay in Bali, I met a group of Couchsurfers in a cafe. Later, we decided to checkout the nightlife in Bali.
Where to party in Bali?
Categorically, best nightlife in Bali can be clustered in 3 areas; Seminayak, Legian & near Kuta Beach. There are some Bali nightlife venues in other areas as well. But, these 3 areas contribute maximum to the nightlife in Bali.
1) Near Kuta Beach
Bali Nightlife venues near Kuta beach consist of creme la creme of pubs & clubs. The nightlife in Bali shimmers because of these glossy nightlife venues. You can go to many venues which can help you enjoy the best nightlife in Bali.
However, along with experiencing the premier nightlife in Bali at the beach, be ready to burn a hole in your pocket. A beer bottle will cost you a minimum of 40,ooo IDR! But, the crowd will be classy and you can almost not worry about pickpockets or any other scams.
Seminyak area has a mixture of expensive Bali nightlife venues and affordable ones. This area is also recommended for staying and there are some beautiful villas near Jalan Saraswati lane. Bali Nightlife in Seminyak can be rewarding if you are able to find a good spot.
Some recommended nightlife venues in Seminyak are Kudeta, Charlie Bar, Mint & Strawhut. I went to Strawhut with some friends and had a couple of beers, enjoying the peppy numbers & the pleasant ambiance. One beer costed around 35,000 IDR.
Are you on budget? Think no more and head towards Legian area to enjoy Bali Nightlife. Legian can offer the most affordable nightlife in Bali. You can dance all night here and the Bali nightlife always sees the morning sun in Legian! The best part of Legian nightlife is that people come here with a plan of partying hard! If someone wants to spend a laid back evening, sipping some wine, Legian wouldn’t offer much.
Some recommendations in Legian are Eikon bar & club, Sky Garden & Bounty Discotheque. These and many more clubs keep the beat up in the Legian lane. You will be able to see loud & buzzing Bali nightlife venues in legian.
However, with great & affordable prices, there a huge risk of pick pocketing here. Your Bali nightlife experience can quickly turn into a nightmare if you don’t find your wallet or mobile!
After partying till 4:30 AM in Bounty Discotheque, we were sitting in front of a convenience store and watching tourists head back after enjoying Bali nightlife. But, suddenly, we saw a guy pick pocketing right in front of us! He pierced a needle in a girl’s arm. She reacted to it and jolted in pain. Simultaneously the thief snatched her wallet and she didn’t even know!
We saw this happening in front of us and the thief winked at us with a wicked smile, sending waves of disgust in our body! The blatant attitude of the thief who just pick pocketed was unnerving! After 15 minutes, he again attempted to pick a pocket. But, this time, he got caught! He calmly gave the wallet back to the tourist, laughing mockingly at the same time; like it was a game!
So, explore the Bali nightlife like crazy! But, be very careful about pick pocketing especially in Legian area. I recommend to carry just a certain amount of cash which you think will be help you enjoy Bali Nightlife. If you are walking back after partying without any cash, the pick pocketing is out of question! Also, if possible, wear trousers with buttoned pockets. This will make it difficult for thieves to steal your stuff!
