Bali is not only known for its white beaches paired with cerulean waters, traditional architectural structures, delicious food, but also for its busy nightlife.
Honestly, writing all these travel content is seriously driving my wanderlust seeing that I’m not travelling anytime soon.
But that’s enough of my mini rant, let’s get to the selections!
1. Atlas Beach Club
If you’ve ever been to Bali, then chances are you have heard someone talk about beach club and that is Atlas Beach Club. Known as the biggest beach club in the world, Atlas is an enormous beach club that stretches across the coastline right by the ocean.
Imagine lounging in the pool and by the poolside with drinks in hand as you listen to the rhythmic sound of waves crashing paired with good music? If that is up your alley, then Atlas Beach Club is one of the nightclubs in Bali for you.
If you’re lucky enough to get spots for the VVIP section, you’re in for front row seats to scheduled traditional Balinese dance shows.
Due to its immense popularity, it does get a bit crowded at Atlas sometimes, so if you don’t want to stand up with others like a can of sardines, do be prepared to pay a sum for the pool spots.
2. W Atlas Superclub
W Atlas Superclub is named superclub for a reason — it is one of the biggest nightclubs in Bali. At first glance, it may just be like any nightclub but Atlas Superclub makes a name for itself for its size, service, and fun.
Because of its high social presence, there is always an event at Atlas Superclub that you can book reservations at on their website. Spanning three floors, you’re able to reserve sofa spaces for you and your friends on the first and second floor.
If you feel like balling, then you can go for the third floor where it’s perfect for 50 pax and the whole place is yours. Not only that, you get to have your own DJ, personal butler as well as a personal assistant for you and your group!
(Psst: if you want a little more — ahem — entertainment, there are plenty of lady companions available on this floor too, at your request, but you didn’t hear that from me.)

3. La Favela
If the mini-statue of lookalike Christ the Redeemer did not grab your attention when you step into La Favela, then perhaps it is the unique mix of colonial Brazilian architecture doused with traditional Balinese interior design that left a mark on you.
For me it was neither of those things, but the sawed Volkswagen that had been turned into a bar that really wowed me.
On top of that, the vibes at La Favela were on point although the nightclub area does seem a little bit enclosed, so it can be kind of difficult walking through the crowds sometimes. The third floor is for techno and house enthusiasts because they play some really sick tunes.
Otherwise if you’re a gin lover like me, you can head down to the second floor for their gin bar and try out the different cocktails if you’re up for a chill night!
4. Motel Mexicola
If you’ve ever wanted to get the vibes of Mexico but felt like Latin America is too far, Motel Mexicola is the closest to it that you will get. In the day, it is a restaurant that serves Mexican and Spanish cuisine with a specialised cocktail menu to boot.
By night, the brightly coloured patterned tiles that reflect the Spanish architecture transform into a perfect party ambience that are reflected by neon lights as the place gets lit — and I mean that figuratively too.
This is definitely the place to go if you’re craving some Mexican cuisine and drinks, and wanting to experience a real fiesta.
5. Finns Beach Club
Okay, if you have not heard of Finns Beach Club, I am here to rave about it until you have it ingrained in your mind.
Maybe it’s the pools by the sea with easy access to the beach, the gorgeous orange horizon in the evening when the sun sets as you carry a cocktail in hand, or a pretty sick DJ lineup but Finns Beach Club is perhaps, by far, the best beach club in Bali — and that’s my opinion, at least.
When night comes around, the place is lit by warm fairaaaay lights that sets the mood for great partying, truly the vibes cannot get any better than this.
I suppose the only thing that caught me in a bit of an unexpected surprise was the fact that the washroom had its own AC unit blowing, and using the loo with a wet body and swimsuit it was truly freezing.
6. Mirror Bali
Have you ever wanted to club in a cathedral or feel what it’s like to party in the dining hall of Hogwarts?
Mirror Bali would definitely fulfil that desire for you because have you seen that gothic architectural interior with its stained glass windows and glittered mosaic wall decor? There is no way you can get more dark gothic than that.
Of all the selections on this list, Mirror Bali provides the best ambience along with tall ceilings and futuristic lighting adding to the overall gothic church vibe, and if you’re a fan of trance and electronic music then this is the place for you!
Just a tip from me though, smoking is allowed in the nightclubs so if you’re wary of the smell of smoke then this might not be your go-to.
7. Mrs Sippy Bali
A taste of Italia with pizza as well as pasta made in-house daily is one of the main highlights of Mrs Sippy Bali. But that’s not all that is good here!
First off, the blue and white decor of Mrs Sippy Bali leaves you feeling refreshed and the service is top-notch. Don’t let the classy ambience fool you though, this place does have its wild side on top of serving authentic Italian cuisine.
Since they are open till late, Mrs Sippy Bali keeps their pizzas going till late along with their special variety cocktail menu that you can try from. As the night creeps on, the place turns into a disco — probably one of the few nightclubs in Bali with one — and on some nights, they play hip hop and R&B tunes too!
8. Savaya Bali
Some of the best views of Bali I have seen (besides the whole cultural side of Ubud) is right here at Savaya Bali.
Sitting over 100 metres above the Indian Ocean, Savaya Bali is one of the more luxurious nightclubs in Bali that even has its own infinity pool that lines with the cliff facing the ocean. Not only that, the observation deck balances well on top of the rock cliff overlooking the horizon, guaranteeing stunning views of the sky and sea especially when the sun sets.
Of course, due to its high popularity, I would recommend booking a reservation before you head down to avoid the snaking long walk-in queues!
This exquisite list took me quite a while to curate because there are just too many good clubs to head to especially when you’re in Bali where the party never stops!
Of these entries, which of these nightclubs in Bali would you think you will get the most lit in?
