The Double Six street in Seminyak has long been a favorite destination for lively after dark entertainment with its long row of glitzy bars and restaurants. Yet the one which arguably commands the most attention in the strip nowadays is the rather subtle establishment on the corner of Jalan Arjuna and Jalan Double Six, Cocoon Beach Club Bali. The earlier impression of the subtlety quickly justified upon entering the spacious lobby with high ceiling, covered with white-washed wood panels.  The bare wall of similar hue amplifies the feeling of grandeur. The entrance opens up to a corridor that ends at the pool side area. The place was buzzing with patrons of all ages in casual demeanor apparently ready for the coming performance of award winning DJ Jesse Garcia.

The Double Six street in Seminyak has long been a favorite destination for lively after dark entertainment with its long row of glitzy bars and restaurants. Yet the one which arguably commands the most attention in the strip nowadays is the rather subtle establishment on the corner of Jalan Arjuna and Jalan Double Six, Cocoon Beach Club Bali. 

The earlier impression of the subtlety quickly justified upon entering the spacious lobby with high ceiling, covered with white-washed wood panels.  The bare wall of similar hue amplifies the feeling of grandeur. The entrance opens up to a corridor that ends at the pool side area. The place was buzzing with patrons of all ages in casual demeanor apparently ready for the coming performance of award winning DJ Jesse Garcia.

I heard about Garcia performing at Cocoon that night from a friend who enjoyed his set somewhere else but I honestly haven’t got a clue who he was. I was more interested in enjoying the bashful atmosphere at Cocoon which is well known for throwing hot parties all year round. So I know that the performance would be of a certain caliber.

Cocoon has had the hippest DJs from all over the world rocking its poolside area since the beginning. Louie Vega, Sean Doyle, and Crazy P have all shown the Cocoon crowd why they are who they are in world dance music scene. The resident DJs are not to be taken lightly either as evident that night not too long after I arrived. The place was still at half capacity. People were moving back and forth between the in door and out door sections, spreading good vibe all over the place. 

The focus immediately shifted to the DJ booth when the opening set began. Crowd was forming around the stage. Some of them came straight out from the pool with a glass of cocktail in their hands and started to dance. The night turned colorful as lights shot rapidly to all directions. I glanced to the street between the club and the Seminyak beach. I saw passersby standing there watching and busted a move or two  before went back on their way. 

Then the party turned serious after midnight when DJ Jesse Garcia showed up behind the deck. The slowly brewing energy exploded as Garcia delivered some infectious electronica beats to the dancing crowd. I didn’t join in but was glad to be there to soak up all the fun that night. Before the party was over I was already thinking about returning to Cocoon for their famous Splash party, an all out pool side bash around sunset from 1 to 7pm.
