Bali’s Music Scene: November Gigs
The last couple years have seen a drastic change in the Bali nightlife scene, with many promoters and club-goers choosing to throw their shindigs in the edgier parts of the island. From indie music venues to banging dance clubs and drink promos to game nights, a good chunk of the best parties go down in, of course, Seminyak and, surprisingly (in a very good way), Sanur!
Head out to these spots for some of the best lineups to groove and dance the nights of November away.
For a classy night of over-indulgence, head up high to Double-Six Rooftop, where a post-work thirst is best quenched. Even better, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the rooftop venue is home to live performances and entertainment that make drinking a delightful occasion.
