10 Best Nightlife in Tanjung Benoa

Best Places to Go at Night in Tanjung Benoa

Tanjung Benoa nightlife shares the lower key atmosphere of its neighbouring Nusa Dua. While clubbing or late night hangouts are few and far between, there are still plenty of great ways to have a fun evening here. And while most establishments close at midnight, some restaurants take on a bubbly bar and pub scene where you can stay on after dinners with some great live music too.

Some highlights are inside hotels, such as the cabaret shows at the Sol Beach House, while one of the island’s must-see theatrical shows, Devdan – Treasure of the Archipelago, is only a short taxi ride away to the hub of Nusa Dua. For a totally different approach to nightlife, there’s Pasar Malam, a night market-inspired concept and extension of the pioneering Bumbu Bali cooking school. Here are the best places to go at night while in the peninsula.
