    the rooftop of the famous Legian 61 buidling in JL Legian is the main party venue of Bali. Legian 61 is the hotspot of partying but the roof top Legian Sky Garden 61 (oficially caled Sky Garden Rooftop Lounge) at the top of the six story buidling is the most packed of them all as this is where most of the action for foreigners, particularly the young and hip australians and other caucasians and a smattering of Japanese, chinese and koreans go to. the rooftop is always crammed full of people and many drunk chicks and local indonesian girls dance at the ledge in the middle of the rooftop garden. there are many tables and chairs around the place but since it is packed full of people standing, you can hardly move as you dance to the live DJ hits of Trance, House, Club, RNB, Hip Hop hits that starts at 6:00 pm to 3:00 pm everyday.

    there is an entrance fee of 50,000 rupiah for foreigners at the ground floor of the buidling, however if you look indonesian, you will be allowed free entrance.

    drinks are expensive here and an example is that beers costs 55,000 rupiah and more before 12 midnight and 75,000 rupiah and more after that!

    4 more images

    Legian Sky garden is the most crowded and most popular club in Bali but it inly occupies the top floor of Legian 61, so this tip will be on the Legian 61 Complex, I will have a separate tip on the Legian Sky Garden.

    61 Legian is the tallest building in the JL Legian area and you would not miss it as it lies just beside the Vi Ai Pi and a stone's throw away from the Bali Bomb Memorial. this buidling complex houses 6 floors and 10 different entertainment complexes like ESC Urban Food Station, Blarney Stone, Club Cyclone, Brandy's Club, Heineken Beer Garden, VIP Gold Pass Lounge, The VIP Sky High Club, George's Sports and the most popular of them all, the Legian Sky Garden at the Roof Top. these complexes have different opening and closing times but the main entrance is located at the ground floor of which foreigners are charged an entrance fee of 50,000 rupiah for entrance for all venues (we look like Indonesians so we were not charged he he he).

    the different complexes are interconnected by several stairways and different dance lounges and you would hardly know where the specific area you are unless you read the signs signifying you are in this particular place.

    prices of drinks like beers are less expensive before midnight like a bottle of bintang beer will cost 55,000 rupiah and after midnight will cost 75,000 rupiah. cocktails and hard drinks are also like that.

    most of the venues are open from 6:00 pm to 3:00 am everyday

    4 more images

    besides having several snack stands and a food court, waterbom bali has a number of bars in the premises where you can order beers, cocktails and hard drinks and you pay via the cashless payment band which you can pre load with money at the entrance or at several money reloading stations along the park. There are two bars areas along the park, then sunken pool bar, right beside the biggest swimming pool in Waterbom park (however no smoking is allowed as there are children swimming here too) and the more secluded by trees, the shack bar (where smoking is allowded). the shack bar offers a dizzying array of both foreign and international beers and assorted cocktails and hard drinks and some bar chow and even a full meal too. prices are on the high side though since this is an amusement park after all! they also blare loud music too.

    bintang beer bottle at 55,000 Rupiah, draft beers at 50,000 rupiah, cocktails at 70,000 rupiah and more!

    Opens: 9:00 am to 6:00 pm everyday

    Dress Code: none, you can come in your swim wear or fully clothed, the only thing they don't allow is going by your birthday suit!

    according to their website:

    Waterbom’s Bali latest play toy ‘The Shack’, is another escape within an escape. This rustic wooden structure is what stereotypes the image of being in a tropical environment, away from an urban setting, the opposite of being in a concrete office space. This new installment will add to the overall experience at Waterbom Bali. Need a break from all the slides, the shack offers the alternative, a full serviced bar serving the freshest ‘Mojito’s’, the mint is literally picked from Waterbom’s own garden. Drinks or no drinks, the shack also offers a place to ‘chill out’, sit in a hammock, play a game of backgammon, chess or any other strategy games and define the word ‘RELAX’, another relaxing option is to have a reflexology treatment, all whilst having great music to satisfy the soul.

    The Apache Surfer Bar is one of the top 5 bars in Kuta and it competes with the nearby bars and lounges like Bounty Discotheque and Sky Garden 61 and Vi Ai Pi for the loudest music as a come on to mostly australian and caucasian patrons and a smattering of japanese and korean tourists too, as JL Legian is the Party Central of Kuta. this Bar is located in between Bounty Discotheque and Sky Garden Legian 61 and has the less ear splitting sound of them all. the place has two stories and the ground floor is the reggae bar where mostly reggae music is played (think bob marley) and there is a live band playing starting from 9:00 pm to 2:00 am everyday with no covercharge and the second floor is the surfer bar of which the more mainstream music is played.

    Poppies Lane 2 has a vibrant nightlife unlike Poppies Lane 1, which has just a few bars and clubs and restaurants. The area of Poppies Lane near JL Legian is the favorite of mostly australian and european tourists and a smattering of asians and they tend to hang around the famous clubs and bars here like Alleycats, Bagusn Pub, The Steps, Piggy's Bar, Twice Bar and more, before hitting the dancefloors at the clubs on Jalan Legian like Sky Lounge or Vi Ai Pi or Bounty. Gets busy from 9 pm until midnight.

    along the 3 alleyways that connect JL Pantai Kuta to JL Legian aside from the main roads, Poppies Lane 2 is the most popular of the backpacker alleys and The Alley starts just before the beachwalk mall in JI Pantai Kuta and zig zags along and it has a side entrance to the beach walk mall along the alley and proceeds to JL Legian where the exit is. Near JL Pantai Kuta are mostly the assorted souvenir shops that sells assorted souvenir items and crafts and some sprinkling of bars and then a number of budget hotels, Inns, Guesthouses and then lots of restaurants, sports bars, bars and pubs and convenience store as it goes near the entrance to JL legian. The alleyway has a more vibrant nightlige than Poppies Lane 1.

    hard rock cafe: pub crawl

    by andrewyong Written Feb 26, 2006

    while there are many pubs strewn around Kuta, the one I remembered well must be the Kuta Hard Rock Cafe. it certainly is the place to go to if you like people watching as there are huge croweds every night. the name fame helps to draw in the crowds indeed. the Hard Rock Hotel is situated right opposite the club. i heard it's bloody expensive though i heard.

    Dress Code: smart casual...your party clothes

    Centrestage, Hard Rock Hotel: Rock and Roll Time

    by hassan_abu Written Nov 26, 2005
    Dancer

    Centerstage at the Hard Rock Hotel had an Indonesian band called Silout so we checked out that scene at around midnight.
    Great Rock songs.
    There was no cover charge at Centerstage although drink prices were steep (30,000rp for a small Bintang).

    Kamasutra: Kuta's nightlife

    by freshia Written Aug 23, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kamasutra is a bigger nightclub than Hardrock. The building and waiters & waitresses were dressed Indian style...
    The dance floor was big and Live music starts from 11pm. Nightlife in Bali started very late. The crowd only began at 12pm.... and ends at 4am
    Expect to pay 75,000 rupiah for first drink which acts as cover charge
