Envisioned around Berlin’s underground clubbing scene, Koh Bali is Bali nightlife’s quintessential clubbing experience. With the look and vibe of a bunker-style warehouse, Koh Bali has two levels.

Vivid laser works keeps the place looking sprightly, while tracks of house, deep-house and techno keeps the bar doing its usual thump-thumping.
To catch a bit of fresh air, head to level to where the bar and the outdoor terrace sit.

On the whole, Koh is the place you should head to for clubbing uninterrupted!
