Top 10 Bars and Clubs in Bali for a Bucks Party

Top 10 Bars and Clubs in Bali for a Bucks Party

Bali is a great place for a Bucks Party or a Bucks Weekend. But which bars and clubs do you go to ensure that your Bali Bucks Party is a blast? Here are our recommended bars and clubs for a great bachelor party in Bali.

1. Sky Garden Lounge



A perennial favourite for a rip roaring Stag Party. Sky Garden goes off every night of the week. You simply can’t go wrong. It’s the safest bet there is a for a top bucks night anywhere in Bali. Sky Garden is also huge: it has multiple rooms playing all kinds of music for every taste and every room is jumping. Most nights they’ll have at least one live dance performance which keeps the crowd bumping. The crowd is eclectic with a mix of locals and tourists. If you want to a rocking club for your stag party with a mixed crowd that loves to party late, Sky Garden is the place to go.

Location: Jalan Legian, Kuta, Bali

2. Kudeta


Kudeta is a great spot to kick off the bucks party in the afternoon with some beers or cocktails. This place is a Bali institution and any trip to Bali should involve at least one sunset at Kudeta with a beer or cocktail in hand. Get there late afternoon and get a good spot for sunset. If a high quality dinner is part of your plan, make yourselves a reservation for dinner at Kudeta’s restaurant where the food is first class. But don’t expect much of a party atmosphere most nights as the crowd drifts away after sunset. After dinner, go to the other bars on this list for a wilder time. The exception to this is when KDT has a visiting DJ or a themed event such as the White Party and Bikini Parties that happen in high-season. These nights are world-class clubbing nights and are not to be missed. If your bucks party takes place in Bali during high-season (July – September) be sure to check out what’s on at Kudeta.

3. Potato Head


Like Kudeta, Pot Head is a great spot to kick off a Bali bucks party in the afternoon or early evening before sunset. Much of what I wrote for Kudeta can be said for Potato Head. One difference is the food: dining at Pot Head is not quite so fine and hence a little less expensive than Kudeta – but still delicious – making Potato Head more suitable for most bucks parties. Like Kudeta, Potato Head gets quiet after dark unless there is a visiting DJ in town. And Pot Head does have some awesome visiting DJs; recent guest DJs include Fat Boy Slim and Justice. Be sure to check out if there’s a visiting DJ at Pot Head whilst your bucks party is happening in Bali as these nights are not to be missed.

4. Hu’u Bar


Hu’u has a great open setting and is a great place to go for a lively club scene for your bucks party on the weekends in high season in Bali. The in-house DJ is normally solid and they regularly bring in some guest DJs, particularly in high season. It’s very quiet it during the low season and even on weekdays during high season as Hu’u will be too quiet for a rocking bucks night. Fridays and Saturdays in high season tend to go off but the party doesn’t normally start until after midnight so plan your bucks night accordingly.

5. Mint


Mint Bar is down the road from Hu’u and normally offers a hard house vibe. The crowd is similar to Hu’u – a mix of well-heeled locals and tourists. Like Hu’u, Mint kicks off after midnight. Good alternative to Hu’u on a Friday and Saturday in Seminyak in high-season and nearby a few other bars on this list so it’s easy to switch.

6. Cocoon


One of the classier joints in Legian, and being on the beach, Cocoon offers an alternative for sunset to Pot Head or Kudeta. It tends to get busy at night (after 11pm) during high season attracting a stylish mainly Western crowd. In high-season, Cocoon has great DJs on weekend nights and offers a great venue for a cool, hip bucks party in Bali. Also of note are Cocoon’s famous ‘Splash’ parties. These are awesome for bucks party that kicks off in the afternoon. Spalsh parties at Cocoon take place on selected Sunday’s starting in April and running through September or October. Check their site or facebook page for the schedule.

7. Maria Magdalena


Maria’s is a great late night club attracting lots of foreigners during high-season. Maria Magdalena kicks off after midnight and normally rocks to 3am or 4am. Their mottos include: “Those who are easily shocked should be shocked more often.”; “Fasten your seatbelts; it’s going to be a bumpy night.” That’s really all you need to know. The best night is on a Wednesday when DJ Dennis is spinning his unique brand of house. In his own words “Wednesday is the new Friday at Marias”! If your bucks party takes place on a Wednesday night in Bali, definitely spend some time at Maria Magdalenas.

8. La Vida Loca


Busy after 3am or 4am and has a massive after-club vibe. La Vida Loca is actually more like a bar than a club since the the crowd floods outside and onto the street. A great place to keep the bucks party rocking when going home at 4am is just not an option. There are more than a few ladies of the night waiting for some action from visitors who worse-for-wear after an all night drinking session.

Location: Jalan Arjuna, Legian, Bali

9. Cubana


A great spot for a more chilled hour or two in your Bucks Party between 9pm and 11pm if that’s your scene. Or If you want your bucks party to be a bit more relaxed and laid back, think of Cubana where they have live salsa dancing and cuban bands. A cuban cigar and a few mojitos are also an option for the quiet period after dinner and before the clubs get rocking between after 11pm.

10. Bounty


Favoured mainly by very young Aussies this club is rowdy and wild. Good if you’re 21 and on a summer holiday with your mates from Uni and you want cheap drinks. But if you like cool and hip joints with a trendy crowd you’ll be disappointed.

Location: Jalan Legian, Kuta, Bali

Bucks Party Bali Pub Crawl

If a bar crawl on your Bali bucks party is your thing, we’d recommend you start late-afternoon in Pototo Head or Kudeta for sunset and stay for dinner. After dinner, have a cigar and a Mohito or two at nearby Cubana before raising the tempo by bringing the party to either Hu’u or Mint, Sky Garden or Cocoon. Go to any of these after 11pm. When you’re ready for a more edgy vibe head down to Maria Magdalenas and after 4 a.m. – if you’ve got it in your locker – move on to La Vida Loca where you keep your bucks party rocking well into the next morning.
