Where to Party in Bali? A Complete Nightlife Guide.

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Partying is one of the best things to do during a trip to Bali. Bars and nightclubs can be found in every major city, especially in the southern part of the island. I already wrote an article about the 1 2 best nightclubs in Bali , but here I will focus on the nightlife areas and their specificities. I hope it will help you decide where to party, what kind of atmosphere to expect and how much you will spend. I will also recommend the best hotels in each area. As usual, you can ask any question by leaving a comment at the end of the page and I will do my best to answer them.

TBM - Gay, Lesbian, Straight Massage in Bali

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
TBM, an acronym for Total Body Massage, is an outcall massage service providing a variety of sensual services in Bali for men and women who can be either straight, lesbian or gay . They are also opened to couples. You can order through their website tbmbali.com , or via Whatsapp, E-mail and Phone (see contact details below). Note that this is not an escort or a prostitution site. You will not have sex with your therapists, only a relaxing massage with a handjob or a vaginal stimulation. Something interesting about TBM is that they are the only ones in Indonesia offering Yoni massage, which is basically a happy ending for women. It can be done by a female or a men therapist. On their website, they describe it as a "massage on and around the vagina and other erotic zones, including breasts". Fingering is optional, depending on the customer's preferences.

McGettigan's Irish Pub and Sports Bar (Jakarta)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
McGettigan's is a brand-new Irish pub and sports bar that had its grand opening on May 16th, 2017. Located in Mega Kuningan, in the basement of Menara BTPN, it is part of a larger group with 17 locations around the world (including Dubai, Singapore, New York, and of course Ireland - see more here: McGettigan's ). I had a chance to visit it a few weeks before their official opening on a Saturday night and what I saw looked promising. McGettigan's is easy to find, just across the road from the Ritz-Carlton, and walking distance from famous bars like Loewy or Basque. It is in a business district so it gets particularly busy for lunch and after office hours. It is built on one spacious floor, with several distinct spaces for customers to sit down: On the left corner, a quiet dining area with private booths and tables. In the back, a long and elegant bar that serves 9 kinds of draught beer. In the center, several high tables and chairs for more casual me

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Many tourists stay in Jakarta for only 1 night, usually before heading to Bali. If you are in the same situation, you might be wondering what are the best things to do in the city in 24 hours or less. To help my friend and family when they visit me, I have written for them a complete 24-hour itinerary that covers the town's best attractions. It is a bit rushed but it is realistically doable in a day. You can always skip a few steps to make your tour more relaxed. Don't hesitate to write me directly if you have more specific questions (thibaud@jakarta100bars.com).
