OPIUM Nightclub Bali - Seminyak (Also Spelled OPIVM)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars)
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.

Opening Hours:
From 10PM to 5AM on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday

  1. I was there last week. As you say some good promo prices at the moment being newly opened, we were allowed in wearing T-shirts, Shorts and Flip-flops but it is a classier venue and no doubt higher standards will be enforced later on. It is well located with many other Restos and Bars around and Koh nightclub is also just across the road. Definitely worth checking out as an alternative to Jenja although being a smaller venue they probably won't be getting the same quality of international deejays playing. Downstairs you have a small dark room with good lighting, high ceilings and VIP Tables around the sides and upstairs looks to be all VIP tables with balcony views.

  2. Went to Opivm last weekend during low season in Bali. The place is pretty small. There is a downstairs main area and an upper level where you can see the dance floor. The DJ was ok, progressive music mostly. Drinks were around $5 for a beer and $12 for a mixed drink. Service was reasonably fast. The place was fairly full with about 100 people. Good air conditioning. People were older than you would find in skygarden. They were dressed from casual to fancy. Most of the women were well dressed. The crowd was about 90%+ foreigner. Definite gay vibe here, but not a gay club. The lighting system needs to be upgraded. It cheapens the overall fees of the place. I probably would not go back unless I was staying in Seminyak.
