10 Best Nightclubs and Bars to Meet Girls in Bali (2019)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Bali is a fantastic destination for single guys who want to meet girls. As soon as you'll arrive, you can download some popular dating apps and you'll be surprised by the high number of matches you'll get (to be fair, there are also many prostitutes - be careful). Another great way to meet girls in Bali is to visit bars and nightclubs, especially if you are staying around Kuta, Seminyak and Ubud. I wrote extensively about the nightlife in those areas, most recently two weeks ago with my guide:  Where to Party in Bali? In the following article, I will focus on the most recommended spots to meet girls. I've made sure to mention a diversity of venues so you are certain to find exactly what you are looking for - be it a rich student from Jakarta or a 200-pound Australian tourist (nothing wrong with that).

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.

Shanghai Baby (Seminyak)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Shanghai Baby is one of the must-try new restaurants/bars in Bali in 2016. Designed by the Australian Grant Chyene, it was built on three stories in a 1930s Chinese art-deco style. The restaurant is on the ground floor, the lounge club on the first floor, and the rooftop on the second floor. The food served is modern fusion Cantonese with a few Szechuan and Vietnamese specialties. It is well presented but not that special. The most interesting part of Shanghai Baby is the lounge/club area on the first floor, which is currently one of the trendiest  nightlife destinations in Bali . On weekends especially, it gets packed with a crowd of older expats, rich locals and possibly prostitutes. The original concept is that of a "bottle club", meaning that instead of a dance floor you have sofas and tables. For this reason, it is best to go there with a small group and order a bottle. Prior reservation is essential. You can still come for a drink at the bar even thoug

Deejay Café - After Hour Nightclub in Bali

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Deejay Café is an institution of Bali nightlife . It is a bit of a miracle that it hasn't been closed yet by the police, considering it is clearly a place to buy drugs and get high. I would be curious to know who the owners are. Located in Kuta Station Hotel in a dirty street off Jalan Kartika Plaza, not far from Discovery Mall, Deejay Café starts to get busy after all the other nightclubs in Seminyak and Kuta close, around 4-5am. It peaks at 6-7am, then slowly dies at 9-10am. I visited several times but never with a clear state of mind. The place is quite large, with rarely a full crowd. You normally have around 20 people on the dancefloor and twice as many sitting around it on high tables and sofas. The clients are overwhelmingly males, among which a lot of gays and transgenders. There are always a few women as well, but many are freelance prostitutes. I would say that most people in DJ Café are on drugs. The DJs play good non-commercial music labeled as pr

Mirror Nightclub (Bali)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Mirror is a nightclub located in Seminyak, on Jalan Petitenget. It is owned by the All-In group, which is also behind the popular Fable in Jakarta. It is a young and trendy company with a deep network among the young Indonesian elite. It is not a surprise that they manage to attract all the rich kids, especially those who don't mind spending several thousand dollars in one night for bottle service.

5 Sexy Dancers and Striptease Nightclubs in Bali

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Bali does not have as many sexy dancer and striptease shows as Jakarta. To my knowledge, there is not a proper American-style stripclub where girls are dancing non-stop and where guests can order a lapdance. Your options are limited to regular bars and nightclubs featuring sexy girls on stage several times in the night. Sometimes, it is just a one-off event. Looking for a hotel near the best bars and clubs? Read: Best Hotels Near Bali Nightlife . Sexy dancers in Bali rarely go full nude or even topless, but the shows are often artistic and the girls know how to shake. In some venues, they will wear sophisticated hand-made costumes and perform complex choreographies. Few are Balinese, they are normally from Java (Surabaya, Jakarta). Below are the best nightclubs or bars to go to if you want to see sexy dancers, fashion shows or striptease in Bali.
