  1. “Both bars are full all the time, crowded, shows are ok, gogo dancers come on to you after every show - moneyboys out to make money. Who can blame them? Plenty of custom but its a murky side and its a sleazy side. Mixwell...”

  3. “Mixwell to Bali Joe to Mixwell to Bali Joe and so on. These two bars continue to be to focal point of (the otherwise quite limited) gay night life on Bali. Great performances, friendly staff who really make an effort.”

Bali Joe

If you find Mixwell, then you will find Bali Joe as it is quite literally next door.

You will likely end up bar-hopping between these two venues.  Bali Joe matches Mixwell with its own cute go-go dancers and highly popular drag shows that feature plenty of audience participation singing along to popular gay anthems.

Throughout the night, there are a variety of stage and bar-top performances including some pretty stunning Balinese go-go dancers and excellent lip-synced female impersonators.  We loved the Beyoncé impersonator but had no idea how her wig remains attached to her head during this particularly high energy dance routine!

Drink prices are not the cheapest, but good entertainment is never free.

Not gay, but your Bali experience cannot be complete without a visit to Potato Head in Oberoi.  Potato Head is a wonderful place to enjoy a sunset cocktail on a lounger next to the swimming pool.

Located next door to the W Retreat hotel, the bar has an amazing façade constructed of old window shutters of all different colours and sizes.  Enjoy this unique architecture, great views and selection of excellent chill-out music.
