Still, this doesn’t mean that there isn’t nightlife in Nusa Dua . With the demand from visitors and residents to have something exciting in the area, some venues have answered finally answered their calls.

Ayodya Beach Club and Grill
Found situated on Mengiat Beach, part of the Ayodya Resort Bali, Ayodya Beach Club and Grill enjoys a stretch of private beachfront for guests to enjoy during the day and night.
When the sun is out, it’s time for beanbags under the sun enjoying the delicious offerings of their barbecue menu, wood-fired pizzas and delightful beach fare. Contrary to popular belief, despite being part of a resort, Ayodya Beach Club and Grill has made a strong effort to be affordable to all guests, to quash suspicions that they might be charging “resort prices”.

On the weekends they have an amazing array of live bands, DJ’s, jazz and more to pick up that weekend feeling right into the night. Fairy lights light up the trees and skies, and lounging picnic areas are set up on the grass for full comfort. Seminyak? No need, Nusa Dua has it going on.

Most of the nightlife in Nusa Dua, as mentioned above, is found in the ITDC Resort Complex, so we certainly have to mention one of the area’s most happening entertainment centres, Bali Collection.
Bali Collection is one of Bali’s premier shopping centres. Designed to be an open courtyard filled with garden-lined avenues of shops and restaurants, there’s definitely something here for everyone. If you’re looking to spend the night shopping and carousing, or want an evening enjoying a late night bite and coffee, you’ll find this in Bali Collection. Of course a few bars and restaurants opening until 10pm are available here – whilst not the pinnacle of nightlife in Nusa Dua, it’s a great spot to drink and perhaps start an evening before going somewhere for a bigger party! Come for food, drinks and some window shopping in a modern, Balinese-styled destination.Two spots to check out for later night drinks are Kodang Restaurant and Bar as well as Mooncheer Cafe and Restaurant.
Nyomans Beer Garden
Now this is a real local hangout; found just outside the Nusa Dua Resort Complex (ITDC), this pub meets restaurant is great for casual beers, drinks and a generous portion of international comfort foods. You’ll find many residents and local hoteliers enjoying the laid-back vibe of Nyoman’s, with its open pub-styled decor with nicknacks and old school bar look making for a fun atmosphere. Best thing about Nyoman’s is that it’s open until 1am and has huge range of drinks promotions for you to enjoy. Since it caters for the non-tourist market, Nyoman’s is certainly an affordable place to drink and dine.
