Stylish Spots For Sunset Drinks In Bali Eat + Drink / Travel

People come to Bali for the beaches, temples and the surf, but the island of the gods is also popular for its glorious, golden sunsets. And what better way to experience this time of the day than with a drink in hand at one of Bali’s best sunset bars. Here’s a list of 7 places guaranteed to make your sunset experience in the island extra memorable.
Potatohead

Potatohead

This chic and stylish beach club in the cosmopolitan ‘hood of Seminyak is a well-known institution in Bali and a place not to be missed. With a towering facade reminiscent of a Coliseum made up of vintage teak window shutters collected across Indonesia, a beachfront amphitheater, a sprawling lawn that leads to an infinity pool overlooking the sparkling Indian Ocean, 3 conceptual restaurants and a stream of cocktails concocted by its very own mixologist, Potatohead is quite an experience on its own. Lounge on one of the poolside daybeds, soak in the sundown ambience while taking a sip of a deliciously concocted libation.
 
La Plancha

La Plancha

Take a seat on bean bags under colorful Balinese umbrellas, dig your toes into the sand and get comfy. Feast on some Spanish  tapas to go with your sangria and you’re all set for a fab sunset cocktail session. Make sure to go early, around 4pm as this place gets pretty packed.

La Laguna

La Laguna

Bohemian at heart, La Laguna is not your typical beach club. Quirky interiors, painted walls and tables of floral motifs, gypsy caravans and mismatched furniture all make up for a fun, eclectic atmosphere. This beachfront restaurant offers splendid sunset views while you relax and enjoy a cocktail or two.

Jungle Fish

Jungle Fish

Junglefish is an open-air, split level Mediterranean restaurant situated by the Osh River Valley in Ubud. It has the feel of a beach club except that whole place is surrounded with mountains and greenery. Lay down on the sun lounger or cabanas for cocktails and conversations with friends or go for a dip in their infinity pool with picture perfect views of the lush mountain set against a sunset sky.

Single Fin

Single Fin

For laid-back, surfer vibes, head over to Single Fin, a surf shop and 3-story bar, perched on a cliff with breathtaking views of the grand Bukit peninsula. Pop a Bintang while watching surfers catch their last few waves as the sun dips into the horizon. Single Fin is popular for their Sunday Sunset Sessions with live DJs and bands on the decks.
