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.

This article will tell you everything you need to know about Kuta Nightlife in less than 500 words. Kuta is the main tourist destination in Bali. Originally a small beach town, it is now an urban area with 400 hotels , 5 modern malls and hundreds of clubs, restaurants, massage parlors and shops. It also has its fair share of pollution, noise and crime. To get around, it is best to have your own scooter (but you must have a travel insurance to drive one) as the taxis will invariably try to rip you off (except Blue Bird). Apps like Uber and Gojek are a good option as well. Walk when possible to avoid getting stuck in Kuta's notorious traffic jams. Kuta is popular with every age groups and every nationalities (especially Indonesians, Australians and Chinese).

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.

Boshe VVIP is a karaoke and nightclub popular with Indonesian and Asian customers. It is located between Kuta and the airport, on the large street Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai. It is the second branch to open after the one in Yogyakarta . The concept of Boshe VVIP Bali is almost the same as in Yogya: It is a medium-sized club with a large stage area and a high ceiling.

The design, the sound system and the lighting are great, among the best in Indonesia.

10 Best Hotels Near Bali Nightlife

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
There are several reasons why you should choose a hotel near the  nightlife  in Bali: First, the traffic is terrible, even late at night, so if you go by car you will probably get stuck either in Jalan Legian, in Jalan Pantai Kuta or in Jalan Oberoi. Second, taxi drivers at night will try to cheat you most of the time, sometimes charging you 5 times the normal fare. Third, it is not safe to use a motorbike, particularly if you intend to drink. Not only you are at risk of an accident (see my article about Travel Insurance ), you could also be the prey of bag snatchers who operate between Kuta and Legian (read Bali Crime Wave ) You can make your holidays much more enjoyable by choosing a hotel in the right location, walking distance from the most famous nightclubs and bars. I selected 10 hotels, and in case that's not enough, I also added links to the best ones in each nightlife area. The properties listed here are all girl-friendly or guest-friendly, meaning they will allow yo

EC Executive Karaoke (Bali)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
EC (for Executive Club) is a karaoke part of the group Varuna Entertainment (they have several nightclubs, spas and karaokes in Central Java). Most of their venues target male clients and have prostitutes or lady companions inside. This is the case with EC Bali as well. While girls are not "in your face" prostitutes, you can ask before doing your karaoke session which ones are open-minded or willing to be booked out. Otherwise, it will depend on your luck and negotiation skills. Girls are ranked according to their desirability so expect to pay more if a girl is wilder (and hotter).
