Opened in December 2016, OPIUM (officially named OPIVM Bali Obsession) is the newest nightclub in Seminyak, South Bali. It is managed and owned by Mac Pedari (creator of Pyramid) with Mark Baker from Townhouse as a partner. Both are figures of the Bali expat and nightlife community so I guess OPIUM will create a buzz for at least several months.
The club is located on the "gay" street Jalan Camplung Tanduk (ex Dhyana Pura) and features two floors. The total capacity is not more than 400 pax. It is rather dark, with a sexy, almost underground vibe. The best part are the sexy pole dancers and acrobats that perform all night long.
The music is similar to that of other expat-oriented nightclubs in Bali (Jenja, Shanghai Baby, ex-Mint) which is not surprising considering the DJs are the same: Ben Burgess, Pyrope, Shammui. You can expect progressive house, deep house and tech house.
There is not entrance fee at the moment as it is still new and the prices are reasonable (Rp100,000 for spirits + mixers, Rp1,000,000 for a bottle of Champagne). Note that there is normally a dress code that applies: They aren't so strict with it but avoid looking like a bogan.
From 10PM to 5AM on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
