10 Best Nightlife in Kuta
Best Places to Go at Night in Kuta
Kuta rose to international fame from surfing hype and its golden sand beach, but once the sun sets you’ll find an exciting nightlife scene with its wealth of bars, clubs and sunset chill-out spots. Some are outright late clubbing venues that are open as late as 04:00 in the morning, while others are great bars that transform into livelier spots with exhilarating dance floors and resident and international guest DJs spinning their best beats to a play of colourful lasers.
A long-running club is District, which is the evolution of the legendary Musro Bali on Jalan Kartika Plaza. Also on the street is Gracie Kelly’s at the Bali Dynasty Resort, which is unique in that it is the only Irish Pub on the island. On the beach street of Jalan Pantai Kuta, there is the Hard Rock Café, and the newer Hypnotized on the third level of the Kuta Beachwalk which also makes up the nightly scene. Here we’ve picked out the Top 10 spots in Kuta for those looking for a great time after sunset.
