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.
The most popular gay bar in Seminyak
“I have been many times to Bali Joe, first it was because I liked the atmosphere there, but as I have been there more times I think they take the easy wagon and present ‘new’ shows again and again… ‘Miss Independent’ ‘Mr Teen Balijoe’ etc. and with the same participants or even the staff. Fortunately I am not a drinker, and it is accepted that I only drink soft drinks or water, but for the locals it is extremely expensive. I think I will go there again but next time with ear plugs, the music is too loud, or I will just stand outside and talk to other people, as that is one of the pleasures of traveling. The showdancers are ok, they have also been there many years. If there was a real gay bar for men who like men, and not only Ladyboys as in all the Bali bars, there would be real competition. Just my opinion. The toilets are always dirty and with wet floors, and never enough towels.”

Great hang out
“@roman : Totally disagree with you, I’ve been there always, never been to western world but I guess $3.5 for a beer and $7 for a cocktail is not a rip off at all. Please be sensible.”

This is Bali
“As a regular visitor to Bali, and Bali Joe, I feel I should offer a different point of view from Roman. This is Bali. Virtually all bars, gay or straight charge over the odds. BJ’s is never going to win any awards for style, but it is fun, loud and different. We recently stayed at the new W Resort, which was totally wonderful, but getting away from the stereotypical W environment for a few hours to enjoy chaotic experience at BJ’s was a lot of fun.”

Smoky, small,,, over priced drinks.. very expensive place
“This place is overrated. Very smoky, smelly, small place. The drinks are very expensive – more than what you pay in the Western world. A tourist rip off in relation to Bali’s economy. Not a very good set up, very narrow and too many guys hassling you. Advice – drink a lot before you go. There is a Circle K a block away.”

“Every time we are in Seminyak, My partner and I love hanging out at Bali Joe’s (haven’t been to Mixwell yet though)… we love the atmosphere there, and the staff are polite, very nice and friendly… We’ve introduced BJ’s to our friends (gays and straights) and they seemed love the place… my brother in-law said the Mojito served in Bali Joe’s is the best in Bali. As for me, I love their Long Island Tea… We adore ‘Annie Lennox’singing ‘No more I love you.’ Support Bali Joe’s … also other Gay entertainment places in Bali…”

“Bali Joe is one of the oldest bars in Seminyak. Definitely has the hottest go go boys in town often playing with customers as the show is on the bar and tiny stage close to entrance. Good service and many friendly people around.
The only shadow for regular party goers are money boys. Bali Joe is literally filled with the guys looking for customers. So if you dont mind or simply looking for it – you can feel like in center of pink universe.”
