Bali After Dark: The 20 Best Nightlife Spots in Seminyak – Updated 2019

You already know where to stay in Bali, what to do, and what to eat, and here’s where you need to be when the sun goes down. Kuta might be the party town, but Seminyak has all the class. You’ll find the best bars and clubs at this address and just around the corner in Petitenget– (sorry, Rock Bar but you’re in Uluwatu!). So include nightlife in Seminyak spots in your travel plans:

#1 Bar 68 at IZE Seminyak 

The vibe: Gatsby on vacation.

Music selection: Live DJs playing blues, soul and rock. Some days feature house music.

Whiskey drinkers will enjoy this watering hole as it claims to have the most extensive selection of whiskeys on this island. Meja downstairs is good for a light dinner before heading up to the amber-toned welcoming lounge. The place has a very 1920s feel with leather chairs and brick walls.

Address: IZE Seminyak,  Jl. Kayu Aya, Kuta Utara. 

#2 Mirror Lounge and Club 

The vibe: Halloween at Hogwarts.

Music selection: DJs playing deep house and hip-hop.

If the Adam’s family wanted a night out, they’d come here to drink countless pints of beer and get weird on the dance floor. The decor resembles a Gothic cathedral with stained glass windows and high ceilings, but the laser lights are a stark contrast. Mirror isn’t the kind of place you can likely get a seat at — not even at the bar — so wear some comfortable shoes that adhere to the “dress to impress” dress code.

Address: Jalan Petitenget No.106, Seminyak.

#3 Motel Mexicola

The vibe: Cinco de Mayo.

Music selection: Live Latin music.

Come for the food, stay for the tequila. This is absolutely one of our favourite spots in Bali because of its welcoming ambience, the open-air and music (Mariachi bands!). Motel Mexicola is floor-to-ceiling true to its Mexican theme with melting candles around an actual shrine and painted tiles. And there’s no way you can miss the tiny Mexican flags along the street. You might get frightened off by all the table-dancing Aussies though. 

 Address:  Jalan Kayujati 9X, Petitenget, Seminyak.

#4 Potato Head Beach Club

10 years. 600 events. Thank you for dancing with us 💃🏻🕺🏽 #GoodTimesDoGood #DesaPotatoHead #JoinTheCircle

A post shared by Potato Head Bali (@potatoheadbali) on

The vibe: Beachside music festival.

Music selection: Deep house and mostly indie electronica.

Think splendour on the beach. During the day it’s a family-friendly lunch venue with nice sun loungers, but when the sun goes down, the kids should head to bed so the adults can have all the fun at the Beach Club. There are people in the pool, some sitting at the bar, some relaxing at the lawn — it’s like one big Bali house party you don’t want to miss. Hey, there’s a reason everyone recommends Potato Head, right?

Address: Jl. Petitenget No. 51B, Seminyak.

#5 La Favela

The vibe: Jungle party.

Music selection: Diversified tracks from across the globe.

For the “Partay! Partay!” crowd, there’s something so memorable about nights at the famed La Favela. It might be that it encompasses exactly what you have in mind when you envision partying in an exotic location. The decor comes from all over including South America, Mexico, Costa Rica and Brazil. It might also be the huge space with tons of nook and crannies that you can claim for your own. And you’ll be sipping on excellent house cocktails.

Address: Jalan Laksamana Oberoi 177x Seminyak.

#6 Baker Street Social

The vibe: Sassy speakeasy

Music selection: Retro 1920s jazz

The vintage interiors might make it seem a bit 1920s gangster, but take one look at the House Rules and you’ll know that this is one bar that doesn’t actually take itself too seriously. This speakeasy, which can be found between a Greek and an Indian restaurant is a pretty chill place to have a “mystery drink” from the bartenders and have a chat.

Address: Jalan Petitenget Street No.17, Kerobokan

#7 Double-Six Rooftop

The vibe: Grown-up, but still got it!

Music selection: Retro pop

50 feet about the Double Six Beach, the sunset views here are phenomenal, the people are chill and every seating option imaginable is there – we particularly like the sunken circular ‘floating’ pods for eight. The atmosphere here is pretty mellow, so you can actually have an intimate conversation. 

Address: Jalan Double Six No.66, Seminyak

#8 Los Gringos

The vibe: La Vida Loca

Music selection: R&B and Hip-Hop

Imagine one of those American university spring break trips to Tijuana, and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what Los Gringos is serving up. This Mexican Tequileria is all about Tequila, Tacos and staying up way past your bedtime. 

Address: Jalan Kayu Aya No. 68, Seminyak⁣⁣

#9 Ku De Ta

⁣Our Endless Summer season has arrived, marking a string of exhilarating events throughout the months of July, August and September. ⠀⁣⁣ ⠀⁣⁣ The party period will kick off with two big acts in July – rising Parisian talent Phil Weeks on the 18th, followed DJ Maestro & Manga Elektrika on the 28th. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⁣⁣ ⠀⁣⁣ The summer heats up a little further with a sizzling, all-day party “Some Like It Hot”, and if that wasn’t enough, there’s an uber-chill hangover-soothing session by Ray Mang (one of the summer party’s main acts) the following evening.

Address: Jalan Kayu Aya No.9, Seminyak

#10 Red Carpet Champagne Bar

The vibe: Glamour meets resort casual

Music selection: Feel-good 70s, 80s, and 90s hits

If your cocktail of choice includes champagne, you’d do very well to find yourself at this bar which serves the most comprehensive champagne selection in Bali. The interiors are glamorous with the red carpet all rolled out, and celeb photos adorning the walls. The waitresses are all decked out in flight attendant-like wears. It’s a good vibe, even if most of the patrons tend to look like they’ve just rolled out of bed (but not off the beach). 

Address: Jalan Kayu Aya No.42, Seminyak

#11 Sling Bar

The vibe: 1920s New York Speakeasy

Music selection: All about the 20s

This Great Gatsby-esque speakeasy is all about the Roaring Twenties. The art deco martini bar is intimate and luxe, with plush armchairs flanked by Tiffany-style lampshades. If you can figure it out where there is a private boudoir you can gain access to. And the cocktail collection here is all about the biggest Rock ‘n’ Roll legends. 

Address: Double-Six Luxury Hotel, Seminyak

#12 WooBar Bali

The vibe: Vibrant sophistication

Music selection: Primarily house and techno 

See and be seen at WooBar. Take in the sunset from the sky deck or chill poolside. It’s all relaxation as the beats take over. If you want to feel super at ease with the world, try the shisha – it’s the talk of the town. 

Address: W Bali – Seminyak, Jalan Petitenget, Seminyak

#13 Red Ruby

The vibe: Disco glam

Music selection: Underground avant-garde European beats (also known as techno)

This underground nightclub marries New York cool and European cutting-edge with the Bali spirit. The place is super high-energy, and the music will keep you moving until your feet can’t move any longer – that is unless the Hookahs that can be found on most tables slow you down first. 

Address: Jalan Petitenget No.919 Seminyak

The vibe: Palms Springs in the Cosmos

This progressive cocktail bar is the little sister of Hong Kong’s multi-award winning Pontiac bar. Like a cosmic road trip through 1950s/60s Palm Springs, this place is all about art and energy.

#18 40 Thieves

The vibe: Industrial speakeasy

40 Thieves is where the expats in-the-know spend their weekends. This New York-style speakeasy is a dark, industrial space that radiates luxe 1920s style with distressed leather and vintage artwork.
