    La Favela

    An alluring, mysterious entry seduces you into full bohemian flair at South Bali's most popular nightspot. Themed rooms lead you on a confounding tour from dimly lit speakeasy cocktail lounges and antique dining rooms to graffiti-splashed bars. Tables are cleared after 11pm to make way for DJs and a dance floor, which sees upwards of 8000 people partying on weekends.

    Red Carpet Champagne Bar

    Choose from more than 200 types of champagne at this over-the-top glam bar on Seminyak’s couture strip. Waltz the red carpet and toss back a few namesake flutes while contemplating a raw oyster and displays of frilly frocks. It’s open to the street (but elevated, darling) so you can gaze down on the masses.

    Ku De Ta

    Ku De Ta teems with Bali’s beautiful people (including those whose status is purely aspirational). Scenesters perfect their ‘bored’ look over drinks during the day while gazing at the fine stretch of beach. Sunset brings out crowds, who dine on eclectic fare at tables. The music throbs with increasing intensity through the night. Special events are legendary.

    40 Thieves

    A New York–style speakeasy, this hidden bar is perched above Mad Ronin, a Japanese ramen restaurant, in the trendy area of Seminyak. The atmospheric venue, which is peppered with memorabilia such as old maps and vintage bicycles, attracts a good mix of expats, tourists and locals. There is no signage, so enquire at Mad Ronin if you get lost.

    Zappaz

    Brit Norman Findlay tickles the ivories nightly at this cheerful piano bar, where he's been not-quite perfecting his enthusiastic playing for years and years. An enthusiastic cover band lures in gleeful crowds. Skip the food.
