Vi Ai Pi is one of Legian’s most frequented nightspots, which offers a convenient location in central Legian, just a few steps from the Legian ‘Ground Zero’ memorial site. It occupies the second and third levels of a single block, and its main venue is a quick hop up a main entrance between two surf boutique shops. Its first level features a bar with cool blue LED lighting in acrylic circles, bordered by tall stools and features a casual dining scene at the back, while upstairs is a roomy club area, which takes on a livelier scene later into the night.
Fashion shows and exotic dancers fill the weekend agenda, and dazzling drag queens lip-synch to remixed songs under disco lights, with sexy pole dancers in the background. Resident DJs carry on the party into the late night hours, playing tunes from electronic to trance as partygoers hit the dance floor. Vi Ai Pi is one of the few venues offering free entry for all.

Bounty, also referred to as ‘Bounty Ship’, became famous for its rave foam parties and is a regular watering hole for Aussies and young ‘schoolies’. The nightspot also features pool tables and a karaoke section at the front. The Bounty’s exterior is inspired by the legendary mutinous ship, and inside are glittering disco balls of different sizes reflecting colourful lasers over two dancing floors arranged as the ship’s decks. Another of Bounty’s signature features are the peculiar ‘bird cages’ in which sexy dancers and members of the crowd climb into and dance away.
Be it beer or brightly coloured liqueurs and cocktails from its Captain’s & Cadet Bar, large clear plastic drinking jugs replace glasses here, and dancing away with one of these in hand has become one of its fun traditions. You get one for free with the IDR 75,000 entry charge. It might not be the most sophisticated bar in the area (by a long shot), but it has a tried and tested formula of dance anthems, cheap drinks and a carefree vibe. Read More...

Apache is one of Legian’s slightly hidden bars, just off the main stretch and not far from the Ground Zero memorial site.

There’s a dance floor smack-bang in the centre of the venue, which is surrounded by seats from where crowds enjoy the flowing music with cold beers and local cocktails.

The aptly named Greenbox is quite literally a small green-walled, 16sqm box-like roadside bar found on a small alley behind the Ground Zero memorial in Legian.

Both of these one-stop spots get crowded with circles of friends looking for a great evening out together, and the main attractions are the fun beer mixes and vodka infusions that come in a variety of fruity flavours.
