This bar / club / restaurant is the most consistently packed place in Sanur, even on weeknights. The place almost always features a live band of varying degree of quality, but given the amount of Bintang people are drinking, it doesn’t matter that much. The place starts filling up around 8 PM when the dinner crowd shows up and turns into a nightlife destination around 10 PM. Any given night you can find drunken tourists on the dance floor cutting a rug.
Unfortunately there’s a couple caveats to this place. Because the bar is on the sleepy side of the island, the types of tourists that come here are mostly couples in relationships with their friends. The throngs of beautiful single Aussie girls that travel together stay mostly down in Kuta & Legian and don’t really make it to this side of the island. There also aren’t a whole lot of local girls that come here, making this place not ideal if you’re looking for a date.
If you’re staying in Sanur and need a place to start the night however – this place works. Show up early, have dinner, get some drinks, and watch the tourists enjoy their Balinese vacations.
