Ubud Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Ubud

In contrast to the fancy bars, swanky lounges and exclusive clubs of Kuta, Legian and Seminyak on the island's south, where international DJs spin the decks and every night offers the wilder kind of nightlife, Ubud serves up a more relaxing ambience and traditional atmosphere.

This is the place to break away from that kind of crowd. However, a few cafes, limited seat bars and performance stages cater to the Ubud night owls. Some venues cater to the pub and social gathering scene, but are much more relaxed and easygoing in nature.
