Top 5 Nightlife Activities in Bali – Entertaining Escapades in the Island of the Gods

As the sun sets in Bali, this enchanting island is transformed into a night time playground offering everything from clubbing to cultural shows. Here are 5 not to be missed nightlife activities.



Beachside resorts are home to a happening nightlife scene fuelled by some of the hippest clubs in Bali. Kuta resort options are ideal choices for those wishing to indulge in some club hopping with Legian and Seminyak amongst the other popular destinations where one can find some of these stylish nightclubs. Well, known clubs include the Pyramid Club Bali in Kuta which plays host to local and international DJs, the Mirror Bali Lounge and Club in Seminyak which boasts a venue that has a cathedral-like design style and the Sky Garden which is one of the favoured venues at the 61 Legian Entertainment Complex.


Pub & Bar Hopping

Bali also has an eclectic array of bars and pubs that provide wonderful settings, be it laidback or lively, for a fun night out with friends where you can enjoy drinking and dining. One will find several English and Irish style pubs along with sports bars showing the latest sporting events watched by local and visiting supporters. As for drinks, you can look forward to local and foreign beers, cool cocktails and international brand name alcoholic beverages that are essential for any night out on the town. Popular haunts include Gracie Kelly's in Kuta, around a 10 minute drive from Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali, the charming Old Man's beer garden in Canggu and Nusa Dua's Nyoman's Beer Garden.


Exploring Night Markets

Bali has some rather fascinating night markets well worth exploring as part of your night time adventures. When it comes to such markets, locales such as Kereneng, Gianyar, Badung and Sanur are quite popular and one can not only expect to enjoy bargain shopping but also sampling some delectable local dishes and street food as well. The Gianyar Night Market, Sanur Night Market and the Kereneng Night Market in Denpasar are well worth checking out.


Cultural Dinner Shows

For a nightlife activity that incorporates some culture as well, you can try one of the intriguing dinner shows that feature everything from traditional Kecak performances to lively fire dances. These shows are generally complemented by some delicious local cuisine too. Examples of such shows would be the one at the Taman Saraswati (Saraswati Temple) which can be enjoyed while having a meal at Café Lotus which has a great vantage point across from the amphitheatre and the lotus pond in front. Another dinner show would be the Night at the Zoo programme at the Bali Zoo which features not only feeding elephants and petting certain tame animals, but also a chance to watch a fire dance before dinner.


Enjoying Live Music

You will also find some great live music venues in Bali where one can take in performances by both local and visiting international bands and artistes. The music on offer is eclectic indeed and everything from pop to jazz and R&B to Latin is on offer depending on the venue and the lineup. Amongst such hotspots are Zibiru Restaurant and the Ryoshi Bali restaurant, both of which are in Seminyak and are popular places in which to listen to live jazz.
