Seminyak nightlife offers a rich collection of sophisticated bars, chic entertainment venues and clubbing hotspots. These complement the upscale beach resort area’s stylish fashion boutiques, galleries, luxury spas and classy restaurants. Most of the venues double as favourite dining destinations by day and they also cater to the evening crowds from sundown and well into the wee hours.

    The Seminyak scene tends to be classier when compared to neighbouring Kuta and Legian. Most of the lounges and clubs in Seminyak offer elegant interior designs and outdoor landscapes with green beachfront lawns and pools lined with shaded daybeds and facing the surf. Some also feature poolside bars, serving an extensive array of fine quality cocktails, martinis, wines, champagnes and vodkas.

    Ku De Ta is one of Seminyak’s most famous and long-running nightlife institutions, also often regarded as the trendsetter for upscale nightlife and beach dining in Seminyak. The beachside venue has also inspired many other similar beach clubs all over the island. The venue features a unique layout with a main restaurant area, a dedicated bar, a centrepiece lawn bordering the beachfront where all special events take place and a special private loft for secluded VIP-style moments.

    There are many different cosy corners to discover while live DJs spin groovy mixes from their open booths. The selection of dishes is inspired by pan-Asian traditions including Thai and Japanese as well as Moroccan, European and Mediterranean flavours.
