    Hard Rock Cafe Kuta Still the No1 Spot: Rock & Roll the Night Away;

    by BesarRahasia Written Feb 24, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is still the No 1 spot in Bali, for serving genuine alchoholic drinks (many places are still selling the cheap fake stuff, since the ban on imports took effect last year) great food, probably the best steak in Bali (except for Mah Joly, but then that is twice the price) The staff are great, and love to celebrate someones birthday with a dance,traditional music, and a cake.

    Live Music is played every night, with a resident band, and they often have concerts with recording artists, Indonesian and International stars performing.

    Every Monday night from 10:00pm to 12:00pm, is "Beer o Fest" when for 80,000rp per person, you can drink as much of the draught Ankor Beer as you can. They also serve a large selection of spirits and coktails.

    A great place to unwind listen to some good music, meet nice people (me included especially after a hard day in the office, just the place for me to go and relax for a couple of hours.

    Dress Code: Fairly relaxed dress code, but you won't get in without a shirt or blouse for women. Shirtless and with Bikini can sit outside on the veranda if they so desire.

    Basically show respect.

    Khaima Moroccan: Seminyak Streets

    by mstinawu Written Aug 20, 2008

    I was kind of "babysitting" one night on a family trip in Bali so I took my boyfriend's female cousins and his sister out. They were bored sitting around in the villa waiting for their parents to finish up their massages.

    We stopped by this place because it was the prettiest on the street our villa, The Amasya, was on. They had a great Morocan theme going on and the price list for their drinks was not too bad (compared to the US, anyways). There was also a hookah, but I think I was the only one out that night old enough to do it. Though, now that I think about it, they probably wouldn't have checked ID there.

    Dress Code: None that I observed. You're on vacation!

    Nice comfy

    Police Raids = looking for drugs and extortion

    by balisunshine Written Jun 17, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For those who have fond memories
    of a Bali when one was carefree,
    and here to have fun,
    well, things have changed
    at a certain level.

    Those fun villa parties,
    have been reduced by fear
    caused by the clamp down
    by the police force and their raids.

    But these raids don’t stop here!
    They are conducted in public venues too!
    No matter how chic they are!

    The police arrive in large numbers,
    loaded in their trucks,
    block all exits and entrances,
    carrying guns,
    and ready too kill any party
    weather you have drugs on you or not.

    They will definitely leave you gazing in awe
    at this aggressive gesture and once they leave,
    it will definitely take a while before
    your heart stops pumpin’ and
    you will feel the ease of the party again.

    Lights are turned on,
    while they walk around the premises
    with their sniffing dogs searching
    their next victim of extortion
    or to just simply put away in a Bali jail.

    Shocked are those new-come visitors to Bali,
    and even those considering to invest here,
    and are left after an experience such as this,
    with shock and the question if
    this is the place they really want to be.

    So, party safe.
    Keep alert,
    and realize that if you get caught with drugs,
    it’s a serious crime here.

    Hu'u: Ho-Hum

    by SFHulaGIrl Updated May 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hu'u is as much a nightclub, as it is a bar/restaurant. The decor is beautiful & plush with a great sound system. There truly wasn't much happening on a Thursday night around 11:00 p.m. The male bartenders weren't particularly friendly; the overpriced cocktails weren't particularly good. A Bellini cost 95,000 rp, plus the 5% service charge & the 10% tax. Even so, we'd be willing to give it another try on a livelier night.

    Dress Code: Casual.

    Sukawati Market At Night

    by imran8852 Written Dec 25, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The car park will change to food center at night & this is one of the places that you can try the local food. A good place to buy some snack like Banana Fritter (Pisang Goreng) or Fried Sweet Potatoes. For none Muslim there’ll be more variety of food to choose from! If you happen to stay nearby maybe you could drop by to join in & mingle with the local, enjoy a cup of coffee …As per normal just be careful with your belonging though!

    Warung Wayan’s: Magic Mushrooms

    by balisunshine Written Aug 23, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In a country where,
    narcotics carry a hefty penalty,
    Magic Mushrooms are legal.

    I guess they can’t stop
    the cows from pooing
    and the rain from falling,
    and well, Mother Nature
    doing her stuff, like creating
    Magic Mushrooms.

    In Bali, there is a location
    where you will find
    its knowledgeable owner,
    selling these psychedelic shrooms
    packed in small bags
    ready to consume.

    One bag provides
    a mild dose for one person.
    Take two if you are a pro at the stuff.
    But don’t over do it,
    or you may never come back!

    Also, if you do have a bad trip,
    try consuming warm milk with sugar.

    It’s important that
    you do this journey
    amongst friends that
    you are comfortable with.

    A natural setting where
    you can lay back
    and relax is best.

    There are different ways
    to prepare them such as,
    in an egg omelet, mixed with juice,
    or in a tea form, or just eat them raw.

    Prices per bag go according to season,
    since they grow only when it is raining,
    and where cows graze and poo.

    So, no rain, makes them difficult find.

    Also, during high season,
    many other look to do the same journey.
    Hence, the demand can be high…as a kite!

    The Warung The dose He knows it all! Don't go too far!

    Up in the Sky Garden

    by balisunshine Written Jul 16, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kuta, after a few years of silence,
    is getting it’s swing back,
    to not only it’s past reputation of Kuta Cowboys,
    teenage party animals, cheap accommodations, etc.
    but it’s also breeding newer places such as
    Sky Bar which is also known as ESC.

    This bar has a bird’s eyes view
    of all the action happening
    below on the main road,
    and also offers some
    of the best house music in town.
    Because of their 24 hour deli operation downstairs
    they also offer food service up to
    the wee hours of the night.

    Don’t like the smoke from bar smokers?
    This isn’t a problem here,
    since the bar itself is under the open sky,
    and can become a covered venue
    with the touch of the button
    of their retractable roof top.

    Once the music kicks in,
    people wonder off to what is their dance floor.

    This venue has become not only become
    popular amongst the Kuta visitors,
    but also amongst the ex-pat community in Bali.

    Plenty of cute surfer boys, drop in!!!

    Open from 1 pm to 4 am.

    We're having fun!!!

    Hopping to M Bargo

    by balisunshine Written Jul 16, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A popular dancing bar in Kuta is,
    M Bargo which is filled with surfers
    and visitors of the Kuta area.

    It’s mostly a younger crowd here,
    looking to have a drinking, good time.

    Plenty of the local girls here,
    looking for that dream, foreign guy
    to make a change in their lives.

    It’s mostly hip hop music here,
    with the occasional fashion show
    and special night events.

    The action starts around midnight, here.

    Wine and Dine at Sentosa

    by balisunshine Written Jun 13, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A brand new location
    that has opened in the
    Kerobokan area is
    Blossom Restaurant & Lounge Bar
    at Sentosa.

    This complex has villas and
    a very slick bar and restaurant.

    When you walk in,
    there is a Bali and non-Bali feel to it.

    With plush sofas,
    a swimming pool,
    gym, an amazing upstairs deck
    and plenty of food to eat.

    This is becoming a popular venue for events,
    and a place to eat and/or have a drink.

    It’s an older crowd with a twist of youth.

    Paddies bar: So many choices

    by austarman Updated May 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This photo was taken of me and a friend in the old Paddies bar that was blown up by a bomber in October 2002.
    However they have rebuilt it just down the road next to another popular club called the Bounty.
    Both places usually get busy but not until midnight usually,mostly they are filled with Aussies and are quite loud.
    For more of an laid back and upmarket type of club with more of a mix of different types of people you may want to get out to the Seminyak strip.
    Maybe try the Sante fe club for a good band or 66 club for a good dance club.

    Dress Code: Very very casual because it's just to hot.

    This was a great place

    Sri Ratu hotel: Balinese dancing

    by austarman Updated May 8, 2007

    One of the staff from our Legian hotel (the Sri Ratu) has a family of three girls that are very good at the Balinese dancing.
    In fact the oldest one has won awards in Ubud and the other younger two are very good also.
    So one night after reading about them in a brochure we decided to hire them to come and entertain us in our hotel while we had dinner.
    They were excellent too and I would not hesitate to get them in again.
    They brought some friends too so there were seven of them dancing for us that night and thier dancing instructor was there too with Wayan the Mother watching on.
    A fantastic night.

    Dress Code: For us the guests it was very casual, but the dancers all went to a lot of trouble to look very beautiful.

    All Over Bali: Thirsty for a Beer? Bali Has Its Own!

    by Ubudian Written Apr 9, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yes! A micro brewery in Bali! We have our own, and the beers are awesome, as are most micro brewed beers. It is called Storm Beer, and anyone who is serious about their beer will truly love this fantastic brew. Currently there are four regularly available beers, but on occasion, and of limited availability, special brews are concocted for the beer connoisseur’s pleasure.

    Storm beers are not available all over Bali as is Bintang, but it is surely worth the extra effort to find it. More information can be found at these two web sites:

    FUEL FOR LIFE! Long overdue in the heart of the Kuta, Fuel will sustain you until the early hours of tomorrow. It's an oasis. Refuel at Fuel.

    Order cocktails from the downstairs or upstairs bar, chill in our comfy sofas and on the patio, or groove to the DJ sounds on the dance floor.

    Every night of the week, you'll feel your body beginning to sway and groove with the beat as midnight approaches.

    Our finely honed sound system carries the crisp sounds of DJ's lining up to put FUEL on their itineraries. Special party events are posted in Bali's publications.

    So where is fuel??? Food at fuel
