Cocoon Beach Club

Cocoon Beach Club is Seminyak’s most popular and sought-after beachfront establishment famous for its infinity pool, amazing cocktails, dining options, poolside lounging and incredible parties. What better way to spend your evenings than in one of its luxurious champagne beds or in your very own VIP Cabana, sipping cocktails and nibbling on selections from the delicious grazing menu as the DJ spins smooth tunes under the Bali sky. The restaurant at Cocoon also delivers truly international cuisine with dishes fusing the best of Asian and modern European flavours and produce. Upstairs at Cocoon is a year-round dedicated function, weddings and events room catering for up to 200 people for a cocktail style party or 100 people for a seated dinner.

Ayodya Resort Bali

This magnificent luxury 5-star resort not only promises a marvellous and alluring Bali escape; the stretch of verdant lawn located between the beach's golden sands and the hotel is also the site for its fantastically fun Summer Party that takes place monthly. With DJs and live entertainment, the sea breeze, amazing views, great cocktails and a luxurious ambience, a night out here on Mengiat Beach would be pretty hard to beat! 

Spice by Chris Salans Seminyak

Now, this is one of the best places to head on to right before your big night out. The iconic Spice by Chris Salans has just opened its doors in vibrant Batu Belig! This stylish gastro-bar is the third Spice by Chris Salans to open in Bali, with the first being in Ubud and the second one in Sanur. Serving innovative drinks and a cuisine based on the surprising flavours and healing properties of Indonesia’s aromatic roots, herbs, and spices, Spice by Chris Salans is an affordable way to experience the genius of Chris Salans’s internationally acclaimed cuisine based on Indonesian flavors and French techniques, made famous by his flagship Mozaic Restaurant Gastronomique in Ubud, central Bali. It is a culinary approach that has now become an influential movement and propelled Chef Salans to celebrity in Southeast Asia and beyond. 

Ryoshi House of Jazz

What originally started out as a simple sushi shack by the beach has quickly grown to a chain of restaurants throughout the island’s most popular destinations, and for good reason. While you can experience lunch or dinner at Ryoshi in Sanur, Ubud or Kuta, their Seminyak venue offers exceptional musical talent that provides great entertainment throughout the evening to accompany your food and drinks including some of the best local and well-respected international musicians. Jazz nights are every Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with a bit of funk and soul in the mix. Keep your eyes & ears open for Ryoshi’s music schedule to see who special is coming in next – and pop in to listen to the Rio Sidik Quintet a very popular local group featuring renowned trumpet player, Rio Sidik, that rocks the house once a week.

It's time to get ready for your big night out! As with everywhere in crowded venues, take care of your belongings and enjoy.
