Whether you're in the mood for live music, swanky cocktails, high-quality resort fashion or all-day beach club partying, there can only be one place in Bali that offers it all – Canggu.

Behind the Green Door

Behind the Green Door is a new addition to Canggu’s thriving speakeasy scene. An intimate bar experience with fine cocktails, great music and delectable nibbles, all in a cosy lounge area. The man behind the bar is award-winning mixologist Harris Mahendra, who carefully creates classic and one-of-a-kind cocktails. Settle in and soak up the atmosphere, courtesy of rotating DJs and emerging musical talents, and complement your cocktails with gourmet bites from the kitchen. Just make sure you take time to discover the password to go beyond the  mysterious green door…

The Shady Fox

This sultry cocktail parlour - where glamour, roulette wheels and nostalgic late night entertainment reign supreme - is a 1930’s-style speakeasy tucked away in the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Pererenan. Expect an immersive experience with barrel-aged cocktails, often served with a theatrical twist. Try their take on the classic French martini, or the elegant Camelia Sinensis served in a tea pot – mixing chamomile-infused rum, blended bitter, lemon distilled and sweet chamomile honey. When you’re ready, knock at the right door and you’ll gain access to The Shady Fox’s enchanting gaming room.

The Shady Pig

More than just a sipping lounge, The Shady Pig – sister venue to the Shady Fox – in Canggu, has the air of a secret laboratory for concocting experimental cocktails. They craft their own spirits, tinctures and syrup, and infuse, ferment and barrel-age in-house. Why not try The Chester – a stiff combination of whisky, port wine, smoked cinnamon and a homemade cherry liqueur - or their deconstructed version of a classic Piña Colada that combines all the typical flavours and ingredients but in a whole different form.

Black Sand Brewery

Black Sand Brewery changed the face of beer drinking in Bali, bringing finely-brewed craft beer to the island, plus a range of wines and cocktails too. Inspired by beers from faraway lands, Black Sand Brewery crafts its very own IPA, a cool and crisp German Kölsch brew and even a fresh Summer Pale Ale. Enjoy a frosty brew paired with bistro-style bites - including fried pizzettas, braised baby octopus and mac and cheese croquettes – while taking in rice paddy views, and a relaxed, Balinese community feel.

Dance until dawn

For most of the time, Bali is the perfect place to relax and restore. But when the urge to dance until dawn strikes you, Canggu delivers. The brand new W Superclub at ATLAS Beach Fest is fast becoming the one of the town’s most talked-about beach club. For guests who want to party hard, this is the right place to come, with an all-night-long party experience accompanied by local and international DJs.
