When the night turn dark and beaches slowly become quieter, Seminyak begin to buzz with its glamorous nightlife. Neon lamps are turned on, chairs laid out, and bartenders starts pouring drinks and stirring cocktails. Here in the tropical Bali, the warm summer night might leads you into the most unexpected party-venture you’d ever have. If you’d like to taste a little of every party in every Seminyak corner, why not plan a night of serious Seminyak Bars hopping to explore the vacation spots and infuse doses of fun to keep your group giggling in tandem? After all, it’s such a waste to stay glued in one location all night long when the city has so much to offer—especially when you are on a short trip.
Here, we have covered everything you need to prepare before hitting Seminyak roads. Make sure your gangs are coming prepared too, because nobody want to have the fun night to be terminated early because somebody forgot bringing cash or wearing uncomfortable shoes.
Google All Seminyak Bars You’re Interested to
This is important. Have a serious lists of all Seminyak bars you want to hop on (we recommend no more than 5 bars—maybe 6 at most!). Because when it’s come to the third bar, everybody would have been too tipsy to decide where they should go next. Google every potential bars, read the reviews, and decide.
Minimise Taxi Use
The roads in Seminyak are quite narrow and can get easily congested—especially during the rush hours. The Petingenget, where you might want to start your bar hopping, can get heavily crowded from 5 to 9 pm—where everybody is heading to the bars—only to get jammed again at 2 am. Seriously, you’d waste huge amount of time if you try to take cab from every bar to another. Try to limit your night to just one or two walkable area. Maybe hit the first three bars in Cemplung Tanduk area, hail a cab to Petingenget, and continue the next three bars hopping there.
Everybody Should Bring Enough Cash
Don’t just assume you would find ATM wherever you go. Bring enough cash to last a night. You gonna need cash for drinks, taxis, and even quick mid-party street snacks. Everybody in the group should bring cash to cover their own expenses—it’s not fair to rely on one or two friends with credit cards to pay the bills.
Wear Comfy Shoes
Oh, yes. The key of crazy, Seminyak bars hopping night rely on your shoes! You won’t be able to dance all night in hurting heels. Save the stilettos for a more stationary nights and hit that fancy flip flops! In Bali, literally nobody care if you show up in a bar with just sandals—the atmosphere is very laid back here.
Eat Something Light Before
Gulping on beers and vodka on empty stomach is a recipe for disaster. Don’t make a rookie mistake. Be pro and have a light dinner—you don’t want to be too full—and give your stomach a solid base before going crazy on drinks.
