Kuta Nightlife

Party central. Kuta at night refers to the area extending about 7km north of the original village of Kuta. This area now includes Legian, Seminyak and even Basangkasa.
The Kuta area is the epicenter of Bali's nightlife. The majority of Bali's better entertainment places offer anything and everything a 'night owl' would want. Located at the center of the original village are Kuta's many open-air pubs and discos.
Entrance to bars is usually free with special drinks promotions and Happy Hours from 6pm to 9pm, and sometimes even longer. Jalan Legian and Jalan Padma have the biggest concentration of watering holes.
Take up the option of joining surfers to guzzle beer, play pool and watch surfing videos at Tubes Café. Or drop by the eye-catching and uniquely sailship-shaped Bounty Restaurant I, which sways to the music of its dance floor till dawn. Other happening outlets in town are the trendy 66 Club (but say 'double six'), terrific Goa 201 Pub Restaurant and hyper chic Gado Gado.

For Kuta's magnetic live music, The Maccaroni Club is irresistible. One of Bali's latest and most extraordinary, this place jazzes it up every Sunday from 10.30pm and invites guests to jam along on Friday nights.
For a rare and special combination of Balinese dancing and rock bands near the beach, head straight for the Zero Six in Tuban; while the new Hard Rock Café draws the crowds with live music and pricey drinks.
Other live music spots include the Aussie-style 'pubs' along Jalan Melasti and the semi-submerged Joni Sunken Bar & Restaurant. Classier up-market hotels like the Bali Padma Hotel on Legian Beach offer more relaxed entertainment.
