Top 10 places to party hard in Canggu
While many believe Canggu is a pretty chilled place, its party scene can make you seriously change your mind.
Here’s our favourite top 10 list of places to party hard in Canggu
1. Old Man’s: The one and only
Old Man’s definitely deserves the top position as it has won our hearts. Located just in front of Batu Bolong Beach, it is a must while in Canggu. What better after an afternoon walk or surf at the beach, than a sunset Bintang at Old Man’s?
And don’t get fooled by its laid back appeal; this place throws some serious live concerts and parties that can last all night long.
2. Deus Ex Machina: The Temple
With the serious reputation of being the first bar to open in Canggu, Deus’ enthusiasts never miss out on a Sunday live here. Tuesdays’ Tacos and Tattoos can get you a free tattoo for every order of nachos. We personally don’t know what we like the most: its hippy, old school bikes, its retro surfboards or its yummy burgers. (More information on Deus here.)
3. Sand Bar: The queen of the night
If you are wondering what to do after a live concert at Deus on Sunday, Sand Bar at Echo Beach next door is the answer. We love its laid back style, where you can literally dance until the early hours on the sand.
4. La Brisa: A new addition to the ‘La Laguna’ and ‘La Favela’ family
Well, he did it again! Sand Bar might be the queen of the night but La Brisa, a boho bean bag laid back bar next to the ocean right at Echo Beach, playing definitely the best tunes in Canggu, is the queen of the sunsets.
5. Lacalita: A Latin throwback
If you have a bit of Latin blood in you, do try Lacalita for a taco and a mojito or two. The music gets louder and louder as the night goes on, while the party is just starting to heat up.
6. Pretty Poison: For the young at heart
With a skate ramp and a darker live stage, just off the rice field road, go grab a Bintang and watch the skaters throw some serious tricks.
7. The Black Cat: Shhhh, keep it a secret
Wondering what it feels like to enter a minimarket, open a fridge and end up in a bar? Just next to Pretty Poison, this new bar offers a lot of surprises – and not just the fridge door.
8. Finns Beach Club: Only for serious fun
Bamboo walls sticking out of nowhere right next to the beach, a DJ playing some funky tunes, people dancing in da pool… The place brings some of the world’s best DJs and is famous for its New Year Eve parties!
9. The Lawn: Gourmet bites and state of art cocktails
Competing closely with La Brisa for the winner of our hearts, the Lawn is exactly what it promises: endless lawn right by Batu Bolong Beach. With an infinity pool and the best cocktails in town, you have to pay a visit to check for yourselves.
10. Gimme Shelter: The Mick Jagger of Canggu
Rock ‘n roll fans, we’ve got you covered. Fun that is hard to miss every Wednesday and Saturday, with new up and coming bands jamming all night long. And if you are waiting for your star to shine on stage, check out open mic every Monday and show us what you’ve got!
