1. Folk Pool & Gardens

Folk Pool and Gardens adapted the concept of beach clubs to match Ubud’s vibe, and they were successful in doing so. There are many places around town with the pool, but Folk Pool and Gardens is the first swim-up bar in Ubud. People frequent this bar if they want to relax by the pool without having to leave the quaint atmosphere of Ubud.

Located on Monkey Forest Road, Folk Pool and Gardens will accompany your unwinding morning or afternoon by providing sun loungers, sun decks, daybeds, and teepees around the pool. The pergolas and Joglo house can accommodate your happy moments with your friends as the area is also non-smoking.

Expert Opinion About Clubs in Ubud

Collecting information about the nightclubs in Ubud that will blow your mind may sound intimidating due to Ubud’s reputation as Bali’s center of local culture. Ubud is not only about cultural performance but also the place to spend a sultry night by enjoying world music in the bars and clubs. Be it the local bars or day clubs, you can never go wrong by going to Ubud to unwind and have fun.

As someone who has visited all of these spots, I have picked out three favorites that won’t leave you disappointed. The hunt was worth it as I always enjoy a night of clubbing, and if you do too, I would especially recommend visiting the following three locations:

Cretya Ubud, No Más, and Kabana

The day clubs and bars in Ubud on my list are perfect if you want to spend some nights out with your buddies. However, the three I mentioned here offer even more thrilling experiences. You can enjoy the luxury and relax, dancing all night, sipping your favorite cocktails, and listening to the magical sounds from the live music and DJ performances.

The author of the project On Bali

Hi everyone! My name is Catur, and I was born and raised in Central Java. I moved to Bali in 2011 but left the island in 2016 before returning in 2018. Bali feels more than a home to me, and maybe that’s why my name feels like a premonition. Catur means four, both in the Balinese and Javanese languages. It is spoken like ‘c’ in chess, which is also the meaning of my name in Indonesian.
