You know how life is in Bali. Well, at least for most of the expats living here. If “Yoga in the morning, party in the evening.” thing doesn’t apply to you, we seriously think you’ve reached a higher level of enlightenment here. Please accept our congratulation. However, there are far more people who still need to do worldly affairs in an attempt to balance their mental-physical health. While it’s admittedly rather questionable to “heal” ourselves by intoxicating it at the same time, people seem to do it anyway. If parties and alcohol-consuming is your idea of having fun in the night, then this article will prove useful to you. Below, we compile five of the hypest clubs in Bali that you just can’t miss out.
- Atlas Beach Club
Carrying along the tagline of “Bali’s No.1 Destination and Largest One-Stop Entertainment, this spanking-new beach club is all everyone has been talking about these days. The first-ever beach festival in the world (or so they claim) houses the longest beach bar in Asia with the longest pool side in Southeast Asia (again, there’s no way to check if the statements ring true or not). While various choices of luxury accommodation are provided in the beach club area, they also have a massive free-to-enter communal area with the biggest street market in Bali, carrying out the best of the nation’s Food & Beverages vendors for you to enjoy.
With a general admission of IDR. 150K to the club area, you’ll get a redeemable voucher for selected drink and access to selected pool area. If you have a children under 120 cm (funnily enough, they measure by height instead of age here, so parents, be advised) they are free to enter the premise, however taller children are subject to a normal admission price and get a free cereal and selected non-alcohol drink. Sadly, they are banned from the dance floor starting from 7PM onwards. Sounds great to you? Go book a spot here through https://reservation.atlasbeachfest.com/ and have a great day.
Not much of a party-goer? Explore their free-entry communal area and find a wide variety of instagrammable areas for you and your family to sit and enjoy the day at. This huge culinary ground carries out some of the best brands the island can offer, ranging from coffee shops to sushi-ya. Tasty and colorful snacks are also available along the thematic Night Market section which your little ones will definitely enjoy; and, talking about enjoyable moments, there are several stages offering different genres of live music that you can surely pick from. Enjoy Atlas Beach Festival today if you want to avoid the busy weekend crowd; or come in the weekend if you want to remember what life was like pre-pandemic. Your choice. Just remember, staying safe and healthy is always the best decision to make.

What? Another one in Berawa? Yes, you heard (or should we say read?) it right. Canggu is THE hype these days, and while you can find pretty little spots in the area, you really can’t miss coming to Finns if you have the word PARTY written on your forehead because let’s face it, every day is a party at Finns Beach Club, one of the hottest nightlife destinations in Bali.

Pretty neat, huh?

Opens everyday from 9AM to 11PM
- La Favela
With a handful of inspiration in mind, La Favela cozily combines the jungles of Bali, the favelas of Rio, all the way to the underground bars and clubs of London and New York with a thick early 90s vibe for a fresh clubbing experience in Bali. Designed to take its visitors to a whole new world, this cozy space offers semi-indoor gardens, artificial waterfalls and ponds, alfresco tables and chairs all laid out beyond a mini bridge that will captivate your breath upon entry into this enchanted garden and treasure trove.
From the architectural wonder, the street art exhibitions, the fluorescence lighting to the cracking music, La Favela aims to bring to Bali the very first underground party scene. No techno, no house music, just music that everyone loves and can dance to. Old school but never cheap, very much like those house parties we went to when we were in high school. After all, just like the owners intend, “La Favela was an extension of what it was I looked for in my own youth and party experience…. The extraordinary decoration and the underground house party vibe … was born out of people … they booked their flights, planned their holidays and La Favela as we know it today was born. A destination in itself.” – Sandra Assiego
If that sounds like a gem to you, then we have a great news: you can even book the place for private events too! We mean… if you want to party but still anxious about being in public, then this sounds like a perfect answer, doesn’t it?
