While you can simply order a cold Bintang, Carlsberg or Heineken at almost any venue on the island, the best pubs in Bali also offer added pleasure due to a great menu, enjoyable atmosphere or unique location. The great collection of beers, from local to imported ales, stouts and lagers also make these venues wonderful places to go to for trying new, international tipples.
Our list contains a wide variety of venues and bars in Bali, from English style pubs where crowds gather for live sports or a game of pool, to beer gardens set on the beach and Irish pubs with live bands. Most importantly, you can rest assured each of these serve an excellent pint.
SKAI Beach ClubLegian
SKAI Beach Club at Padma Resort Legian in Bali is the resort’s main beachfront venue, where you can take in the stunning sunset moments over the Legian surf from various cosy lounging spots indoors and out on a semi-al fresco terrace and while soaking in an infinity pool. Aptly, its name is a playful acronym of ‘sunset, kocktail, al fresco and indulgence’. SKAI adds to the small number of beach club lounging options on Legian Beach.
Returning guests to Padma Resort will find SKAI Beach Club as the amazingly refreshing result of a total revamp from Padma’s former Bella Rosa Italian restaurant, where you can now enjoy a refined chill-out venue with signature cocktails served from a strikingly designed bar composed of a criss-cross woody trellis and latticework, and with light bites from an all-day dining menu.
