    Best Places to Go at Night in Seminyak

    Seminyak nightlife has flourished over the years with its rich collection of sophisticated and chic entertainment venues, bars and hotspots. These complement the upscale beach resort area’s stylish fashion boutiques, dazzling galleries, luxury spas and classy dining spots. Most of the venues double as favourite dining destinations by day, with attractive menus and splendid beachfront settings, and also cater to the evening crowds from sundown and well into the wee hours. Seminyak serves a more classy nightlife scene compared to neighbouring Kuta and Legian, and it often features international live performers and well-anticipated annual gigs.

    Most of the lounges and clubs in Seminyak offer elegant interior designs and outdoor landscapes with green beachfront lawns and pools lined with shaded daybeds and facing the surf. Some also feature poolside bars, serving an extensive array of fine quality cocktails, martinis, wines, champagnes and vodkas. From the long-standing Ku De Ta, the elegant Potato Head Beach Club and WooBar at the W Retreat along the famous Jalan Petitenget, to the slightly far end of Batubelig Beach where the refined Mozaic Beach Club resides, Seminyak offers night owls among the island’s greatest haunts and watering holes.

    WooBar is also easily one of Bali’s most happening nightspots, featuring a regular agenda of world-class gigs. Not only is it one of the perks of staying at the W, offering a lively scene right by your suite, it is also open to outside guests. As a roster of international live DJs and performers liven up its events, you can simply descend into the bar for sunset and lay by the poolside with its delicious row of cocktails and tapas. To add to the fun, you can also go Ottoman and puff your way through the evening with a cool assortment of fruity-flavoured hookahs. If you aren’t a staying guest at the W Retreat, getting there is easy – every driver knows the Seminyak neighbourhood like the back of their hand, and WooBar is one of the new bastions for sunset chill outs in this upscale resort area that is a great place to head out to after dinner, any day of the week.

    Potato Head Beach Club has fast gained popularity as one of the most happening venues in Seminyak, joining the array of world-class hotspots that line this upscale, cosmopolitan coastal village. The venue is next door to the W Retreat, and its access from the main Jalan Petitenget road is similar to W’s, with a long and narrow lane that transports you to a world of drinks, dining and partying on its lawn beachfront. From the end of the driveway, you’ll see the quirky architecture of the beach club, particularly its trademark towering feature comprising a patchwork of old and worn teakwood window shutters. The signature structures and main venue resembles a stadium or coliseum, and the thin curved path into the beach club even makes you feel like a gladiator entering battle. International DJs and celebrities take the stage that stands in front of a backdrop of the Indian Ocean, while lively crowds graze over the 500sqm lawn. Read More...
