Sun's Out, Drinks Out

Bali Denpasar

Days in Bali are spent basking in the sunlight, sinking toes into the sand, and chugging Bintang Beers. The island’s myriad of beach clubs and bars guarantee that there’s an atmosphere, crowd, and refreshment fit for any personality! Take it easy, daytime drinking here is totally acceptable—imperative, even. Pick your poison, and get ready to wait for that famous sunset!

Potato Head Beach Club

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 13 August 2018

Potato Head is the poster child of Bali’s beach clubs. Indonesian architect Andra Matin designed the iconic amphitheater-like structure. Its facade is made up of antique teakwood shutters gathered from all over the archipelago. Within, a gorgeous beachside infinity pool sets the mood for a laid-back tropical afternoon. Kick back at the lounge with one of the bar’s exotic cocktails, most of which are infused with local ingredients. They also have a menu of classic beverages for the purists. Arrive early (we’re talking around noon) and claim a coveted spot to marvel at the sunset!

Old Man's

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 13 August 2018

Old Man’s in Canggu village calls itself a “beachfront beer garden.” The institution is located along Batu Bolong Beach, giving it an easygoing vibe. Grab a bottle of beer, plop down on a bean bag chair, and observe surfers riding the waves. Booze is two-for-one every day at 5:00PM, attracting droves who transform the place into party central! “Dirty Ol’ Wednesday” is the highlight of every week; a DJ plays in the background while you revel in a night of games, beer pong, and carefree dancing!

Jungle Fish

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 13 August 2018

Situated amidst the forest, Jungle Fish is known as Ubud’s “no beach... beach club.” It provides the ideal setting to embrace the greener side of Bali.

Motel Mexicola

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 13 August 2018

Every corner at Motel Mexicola is photo-worthy! Loud colors, bright geometric patterns, and odd votive decor deck the restaurant. Gorge on plates of traditional Mexican street food while you watch guests capture the eccentric space. Go ahead and take a few snaps as well! Enjoy as many margaritas as you're able to. Once the sun goes down, Latin American music fills the air; and you’ll need that kick of liquid courage to keep you dancing through the night!

Single Fin

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 13 August 2018

Perched on a cliff in Uluwatu, Single Fin grants stunning vistas of the Indian Ocean. Settle in with a cold brewski, and stake your territory on the wooden terrace. On the horizon, you’ll see professionals navigating the area’s famous surf breaks. They convene at the bar at the end of the day, so expect it to get crowded the later you stay. Sundays bring in live bands and DJs, so definitely drop by then!

The Naked Coconut

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 13 August 2018

Off Jalan Pantai Berawa, keep an eye out for the dirt path leading to The Naked Coconut—one of Canggu’s best-kept secrets! The tiny shack gives you a no-frills Bali beach bar experience. There aren’t a lot of people here, except for a few regular locals and expats. Lie down on a hammock, and sway along with the palm trees overhead. While we know you love your tipple, opt for a fresh coconut instead to get into the island feeling!

Rock Bar Bali

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 13 August 2018

An inclinator from Ayana Resort and Spa Bali slides along the cliffside to Rock Bar Bali. The picturesque centerpiece lounge (which was built using recycled glass canes) sits atop remarkable rock formations. Head to the counter, and ask the bartender for one of the specialty cocktails designed by bar consultant Sebastien Bonnefoi! At sundown, majestic colors fill the panorama, complemented by strong waves crashing onto the giant reef like fireworks. It’s easy to see why it’s recognized as one of the best sunset viewpoints on the island!

Sundays Beach Club

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 13 August 2018

On days that call for peace and quiet, make your way to Sundays Beach Club in the Bukit Peninsula. The secluded stretch of white sand and turquoise waters is only accessible through a funicular from The Ungasan Cliffside Resort. Once you descend, you’ll be welcomed by a team of staff ready to shower you with top-notch service! In between drinks, take advantage of the joint’s array of free activities: kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, and snorkeling. Take note that there’s an IDR450,000 (around USD30) entrance fee, which includes an IDR250,000 (about USD18) credit for food and beverages.

Mrs Sippy Bali

Bali Denpasar, Indonesia • Recommendation • 13 August 2018

Mrs Sippy only opened in 2017, yet it has already set itself up to par with the archipelago’s best hangouts. Its biggest draw is the spectacular saltwater pool (the biggest in Bali!) which comes with one-, three-, and five-meter high diving boards. People show-off their diving skills, which makes for great entertainment. Stop by the poolside bar to get some refreshments, before dancing to the sounds of resident international DJs. Energies are usually high here, but it’s okay to take a rain check on the party. Unwind on a comfortable daybed instead!
