Nightlife in Legian is a rich mix of nightclubs and dining spots that stay open until late along Jalan Legian, which connects Kuta and Seminyak. There’s also a variety of notable and unique bars found on the branching alleys such as Poppies Lane 1 and 2. Using Legian’s Ground Zero memorial site as a central landmark, it’s hard to miss the high-rising 61 Legian Entertainment Complex, which is one of the area’s main attractions after dark.
After you’ve spent the day relaxing on the beach, you’re never short of fun options in Legian. The area is home to some of Bali’s favourite bars and clubs, and always promises a night to remember – or forget, depending on exactly how long your night lasts.

Sky Garden Bali is the revolutionary enterprise that taught Legian’s night owls just how great time spent on a soaring rooftop can be. With a range of different venues where you can hang out, drink and dine under one roof, it’s actually the complex’s roof that everybody heads to first. Under the Sky Garden Rooftop Garden Lounge, there’s the Sky Dome club, the Bang Bang lounge and the Blarney Stone Irish Pub.
The top floor buffet is impressive – a mouth-watering display of barbecue sauced roast chicken, assortments of salads and pastas, and smoking skewers on a blazing grill. There are many seating options to choose from, with comfortable padded benches and long tables around the edge if you’re in for the view. Or, for more mingling, you can opt for the long table in the centre under a single tree. Behind, a large projector screen plays action movies, with music provided by the DJ. Read More...

Bounty 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 ship of the same name, on which the crew mutinied, which gives the place its alternative name of Bounty Ship. Inside are 2 dance floors arranged like a ship’s decks.
The bar has an entrance fee that pays for your first drink. After that, the beer and brightly coloured liqueurs and cocktails from its Captain’s & Cadet Bar are famously cheap. With tried-and-tested dance anthems and an almost too-carefree vibe, the club is something of a Legian legend. Read More...

Engine Room is a hip, 3-storey nightclub that jumps nightly with a mostly young crowd. The club’s doors open in the afternoon, earlier than most of the late-night spots along the same strip. Partygoers can drop straight into the main dance floor from the Legian sidewalk, and it’s a popular first stop on their club-hopping adventures.
The atmosphere builds up steam around midnight as its team of resident DJs turn up the beats with a good mix of hip-hop, dubstep and trap. You’ll find a convivial atmosphere as the staff here are seemingly trained to spread fun, either inviting you to dance or challenge you with a round of pool. Read More...

Vi Ai Pi occupies the 2nd and 3rd levels of a single block, and its main venue is a quick hop up a main entrance between 2 surf boutique shops. Its 1st level features a bar with cool blue LED lighting in acrylic circles, bordered by tall stools and a casual dining area at the back. Upstairs is a roomy club area, which takes on a livelier pace 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. Resident DJs carry on the party into the wee hours, playing tunes from electronic to trance as partygoers hit the dance floor. Vi Ai Pi is one of the few venues in the area offering free entry for all. Read More...

Paddy’s Pub is the 3rd incarnation of the legendary Paddy’s Club, and retains much of its former appeal with its fun themed parties and reasonably priced drinks. Open from the late afternoon, you can step right in from the sidewalk and pick a seat on its open-air terrace to enjoy street views and people-watching, or go further inside to the bar, lounge or dance floor where a mostly young crowd begins to gather in the wee hours.
The venue is a sight of contrasts, and somehow deliberate. Paddy’s Pub’s entrance is a Balinese-style gate decorated with statues and parasols, yet, the ‘temple’ buzzes with an interplay of colourful laser lights and thumping beats. You’ll experience a different set of décor almost every week around this façade, depending on the theme, so one evening here might not be the same as the next. Most enjoy Paddy’s better when it’s not too packed, notably during weekdays and non-holidays. Read More...

La Plancha is a thriving café on Mesari Beach at Seminyak’s southern end, teases your senses with splashes of colours throughout its 2-level structure and with a menu of tasty grills and Spanish cuisine. With large and colourful parasols on its beachfront, it appeals most at sunset, when you can sink into beanbags around mini tables laid out on the sand.
Living up to its name, La Plancha (literally ‘the grill’) serves a variety of Spanish and barbecued delights. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the café is a welcoming stopover on morning beach strolls, a day out in the waves or for fun evening gatherings. Look out for regular live music events throughout the year. Read More...
