Set in a Gothic cathedral interiors, the sparkly innards of Mirror Bali are always shooting out chromatic lasers throughout the room.

Another bar with a staunch dress code is Mirror Bali – requiring men to suit up in their casual chic and for the women – it’s the “dress to impress” routine. For those who don’t want to stand or dance their night away to glory there are 2 VIP lounges that require you to shake off a hefty amount. Premium comfort doesn’t come cheap. The bar offers a variety of choices.

We advise you seek out their bubblies of Chandon and Moscato and their signature cocktails – Blanc Fleur and Irish Tiramisu.

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. The bunker at ground level is top-notch with sound proofing done right. 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. While house and techno tracks thump across the sound system regularly, on Thursday nights they give way to disco and dancehall tracks. On the whole, Koh is one of the best places to experience nightlife in Bali and for clubbing uninterrupted!
