There are lots of live band joint in Sengigi area. Well actually, here is THE place for nightlife in this island (other than this area, you can get good dose of nightlife at Gili Trawangan). You can choose from few places to hang out at night. All the joints are nearby to each other.
Few names to mention, Papaya Cafe, Happy Cafe, Bukit Sengigi disco etc
Dress Code: No dress code, anyboby can come with or without anything!
I give this place a thumb up for its nice decor. Located right in the heart of Senggigi, just beside Ray hotel, features live entertaiment. Serve dinner from local to western menu. Covered 1st and 2nd floor, with pool table on the upper stage.
Open daily from 6pm - 4am. Entrance fee/Cover charge = 20000rupiah, include 1 standard drink.
Dress Code: No dress code require. Wear as you please...
Because there are
no police on the island,
mushroom omelets, drinks,
pizzas are sold openly.
You will see plenty of signs
along the main road.
So no need in finding the right contact.
The average trip goes for 150,000- 250,000 Rp.
You can have a strong dose or a mellow dose.
If you’ve never tried them,
It’s important to be amongst friends
that you are comfortable with.
The mushrooms contain psilocybin,
which is a powerful hallucinogen.
Psilocybin may give you a stratospheric high,
giving you the giggles all night.
But it may also result in paranoid or
psychotic reaction that
can be extremely unpleasant.
Don’t expect to be sexually active
when under the influence.
The high can last up to 8 hours,
until you excrete them.
If you are having a bad high,
drink warm milk,
or a glass of hot water mixed with sugar.
It is very important that when taking them,
you are relaxed amongst friends,
allow yourself to go with the flow,
and just enjoy.
The next day,
you may feel a bit tired.
This is normal.
This is not an upper,
it’s a total mellow state of mind.
You desire to be outside in nature
may be intense at some part of the journey.
Just connect with the universe.
Don’t expect anything.
Just let it happen.
And it will be all good!
Have a great journey!
A lovely little restaurant tucked away run by a Belgian lady (who loves scuba diving) with a mixed international & local cuisine variety on the menu.
The restaurant is set outdoors next to a lovely romanesque pool.
The ambience and setting made for a romantic meal and the food tastes great.
Dress Code: Smart casual
There are several restaurants which plays movie in a big screen at night.
They will put the title and the time in the afternoon in front of the restaurant
I was watching Halle Bery's movie in Dive Indonesia. They have comfortable chair where we cozily tucked in sipping our drink and enjoy the movie
Trawangan really live up to its reputation as Party Island.
Basically all the Pubs in the island take turn to create a party everynight.
People said the best one was when it was hosted in the Irish Pub Tirnagog
Senggigi has about the only nightlife club scene in Lombok and even then it is rather low key and quiet as compared to Bali.
Your best choice would be your own hotel lounges for some lively music and drinks.
There are several establishments that cater drinks and music in central Senggigi and they are distinguished by the music they play and the crowds there. Popular establishments include the Papaya Cafe and Senggigi Seafood Restaurant. Not cheap, mind you for affordable night dining with music.
Mataram is fairly quiet and at night, surprisingly is quite safe. No nightlife scens but several restaurants and coffee houses do upon up till late for locals and people to drink and laze around.
The parks in Mataram are dead quiet and dark since Lombok is going through an electricity problems--- it is not uncommon for blackouts to occur.
On Trawangen, try to find out where the party night will be. Its usually advertised on trees and notice boards. The best ones are the beach party, the one at the hotel and the one at the Blue Marlin. The partys are one big *** up! Drugs are taken freely on the islands and you can get magic mushroom shakes.
During the day, the bars are great to chill out and watch movies. One of the best for this is the Irish bar, they have huge comfy seats and do fantastic sandwiches. In the evening its pretty good too for a bar and they often have quiz nights!
On Air, the only bar I tried was GoGo.
