Expert Opinion

I have been living in Bali for ten years, and before that, I always came here for a holiday. The first area I visited was Kuta in what proved to be a nostalgic holiday moment with my family. Walking in the shopping arcade, surrounded by a beautiful beach and sea views, made me feel that Kuta is the best location that Bali has. Besides the surf and the shops, the bars in Kuta have also caught my attention. So, here are my selections of the best bars in Kuta Bali.

Stadium Sports Bar, Gracie Kelly’s, and LXXY Nightclub

The reason why these make up my best selection is because of the ambience, music, and atmosphere. The vibes are perfect for just chilling, dining and drinking, watching sports matches, and listening to good music. Personally, I’m not much of a partygoer, but good music and drinks are the best combo for unwinding!

If you plan to fly to Bali for a holiday or business, visiting the bars in Kuta is worth trying. Enjoy Kuta, Bali!
