The only “real” nightclub on the sleepy side of the island, Sanur. This bar / nightclub has a single pole in the center of the dance floor. The decor is an assortment of random local Balinese paintings of monkeys. There’s a strange 80s vibe to the place even though the music is always modern pop / techno music.
Most of the local girls who show up here are freelancers who work as waitresses during the day at the restaurants on Jl Tamblingan. The other contingent are lost tourists staying at the resorts in Sanur but don’t want to take the 45 minute drive to Kuta for the nightlife, and have settled for the Zoo.
At 1 AM they have a “sexy dancer” show where two girls in costume come out for a 15 minute performance. The girls can dance well and are always up for a chat after their performance.
This place picks up around 1 AM.
Strangely the Zoo is now open as a restaurant during the day.
