Apart from their status of overly crowded tourist areas, Legian and Seminyak are also keeping up with their other-more sophisticated main tourist attractions such as Sanur and Ubud with the ever-changing neighbourhood.
Known for the clubs, casual bars and lounges lining up the streets, you can certainly find somewhere nice to sit down and enjoy some familiar tunes of your preference if you know just the place.
If you’re one who enjoy live music while chugging out your beer(s), you might want to try to go to The Orchard Bali.
Located in Seminyak’s Jalan Nakula, the bar and restaurant has been all over the internet, rating 4.5 stars on the biggest search engine the world has yet to see.
With a myriad of good reviews, this small and relaxed, cozy place is raved for its good selection of live music and assorted ingredients that make sure the somewhat higher-priced (in comparison to other restaurants in the area) food and drinks are worth the price.
With one of the best-tasting Western-style food in the island served by excellent and friendly staff, we guarantee that you will leave the place with nothing but happiness and satisfaction.
Come on for a buy one gets one promo on their happy hours every 5 to 7 pm for an even better experience, or, to top it off, find out their live music schedule as they have weekly events playing different sorts of music so you’ll treat not only your palate and stomach, but also your ears.
However, due to its excellent choice of music (and their high quality sound system), The Orchard might not be the right place for a friendly meeting in which you would want to chat and have a conversation. Opt for a motorbike, or taxi when you decide to give the place a try since it is located in a rather narrow street with little no none designated car parking areas.
Don’t worry, it is extremely easy to get a bike taxi or rent one in Bali since almost everybody here prefers to roam the island by bikes and avoid the traffic jam that has been Bali’s biggest problem for the past few years.
Our last tip about The Orchard would be not to take your children (or yourself, if you’re not used to the smell of smoke) inside since this is a smoking bar.
Fortunately, it is relatively easy for us to reserve a place in The Orchard Bali (ask for a seating near the front door) since they provide online reservation facility by Whatsapp, making bookings much easier for the customers.
Be sure to wait for their reply, though, to avoid any misunderstanding or errors in regard of the reservation. The Orchard Bali is open for business every day from 8am to 1 am (or 12 am on Sundays).
There you go, another new place to enjoy Bali nights with your friends. We hope you’d give them a try and tell us if what we said was right. Happy holiday!
