Fill your nights with music, food and cocktails down at the beach or up in the rooftop. You decide. These popular places in Seminyak will never let you down.
Ring Ring. It’s Bali Calling. Here's all the Seminyak after-dark bar-crawl maps and coordinates you need to enjoy Bali's most popular district.
Break Bad, and go from Walter White to Heisenberg here, if you know what we mean. Motel Mexicola is the perfect setting for a Mexican cartel themed night out. Be greeted by what looks like gun booths, neon lights, candles and wood, gangster memorial shrines, and kalaidescopic colours of summer. The bar offers more than tequila and standard cocktails and you can also dip your hands into a guacamole jar range of tostadas, tacos and ceviche. The live Latin music will perk up anyone’s dull night.

This unpretentious and casual bar is the place to be if you prefer a laidback vibe. Stretched out across the sand, pick a colour for your beanbag (if there are any left!) and you can get comfy for hours. They serve tapas and your typical cocktails in cute Hawaiian shirts.
La Favela Bar and Restaurant
“Favela” = Brazilian shanty town / slum. A sister of La Plancha, La Favela is an after-dark havana gangsta paradise without actual gangsters. Expect sweaty sun-kissed bodies, shorts and shades, bare chests, tropical heat, sick beats, and strong drinks. Its quirky hoodlum design is inspired from the urban cul de sacs of Rio. Although famed for being a good dining option, its bar opens till late, very late, and has an extensive collection of liquers. Last we checked, there’s a DJ competition going on. Definitely not just a place for food!
Set in the island’s hippest hotel W Bali - Seminyak, Woo Bar has a sunset happy hour deal (4:00 to 6:00pm). Also one of the finest destinations for watching sundown, be sure to come early so that you can score one of the first-row bar stools or their daybeds for a Mojito.
