The best spots to get your drink on in Bali

Jul 20 2018, 8:20 pm

Bali is a magical land for many reasons. It’s serene, beautiful, friendly, and diverse. And what better way to enjoy all of these aspects than with a drink in your hand?!

Here are our picks for the best spots to enjoy a drink or five in Bali.

Tequila and table dancing: Motel Mexicola

A post shared by Motel Mexicola (@motelmexicola) on

Come here for tacos and a delicious coconut cocktail and by 10 pm you’ll find yourself dancing on the stage, joining a congo line, and singing along to classic bangers like YMCA and Whitney’s “I wanna dance with somebody.” This is non-negotiable for Bali, in our humble opinion.

Epic cliffside bar: Rock Bar at Ayana Resort

A post shared by Rock Bar, BALI (@rockbarbali) on

Bali is all about epic cliffside views, and Rock Bar cannot be beat. Drinks are a bit pricey, but it’s so worth it for the view of this stunning multi-platform bar built into the rock, which you access via a little elevator. Just be careful not to get splashed (we speak from experience.)

Epic pool party: Finns Beach Club

Day drinking (in moderation) is encouraged at this impressive multi-level bar right on the beach of Canggu. Kick back at the second-floor lounge bar, watch the sunset go down at the pool bar, or hang loose at the surf bar. Whet your appetite at the sushi bar or slightly classier dining area (by classy, we mean you might have to put on a shirt).

Some say it’s douchey, some say it’s a must. Either way, with eight pubs and clubs under one roof, this epic dance house is named one of the top nightclubs in the world for a reason. Whether you’re dancing on tables to top 40, bopping around to house music, or seeing a DJ through to sunrise, Sky Garden’s got you covered. PLUS there is a $10 all-you-can-eat, all-you-can-DRINK buffet until 9 pm. We repeat. All. You. Can. Drink. Got it? Good.
