Our 25 Best Canggu Bars

FINNS Beach Club

FINNS is the best beach club in the world, not just in Canggu, and we don’t limit our guests to one bar. We have 10 bars for you to choose from.

You can easily find the perfect place to drink our signature cocktails and super incredible beers and watch the world go by as the Indian Ocean washes against the beach.

And if you want your refreshing cocktails while you splash around in the pool? We’ve got two swim-up bars for you to enjoy too!

You can also get some gourmet bites at the bar or move on to one of our three awesome restaurants once you get food to soak up the epic cocktails. Beach bars don’t get better than this.

FINNS MANTA BAR 2023

Friends Bar

Friends is one of the newest and coolest additions to Bali’s bar scene.

They also have the best plant-based snack menu that we’ve ever tried. Their meat-based offerings are very good too. 

Our carnivorous friends love coming to Friends because they agree that the food here knocks it out of the park.

The signature cocktails are reasonably priced, and the Cocomile Highball will blow you away with its local flavours!

Behind The Green Door

If you’re into signature cocktails in a speakeasy bar environment, you may be looking for Behind The Green Door.

Make sure to book in advance to get the password, or you may be turned away when you arrive.

Their in-house mixologist, Harris Mahendra, practices “zero waste” when creating cocktails, which is pretty awesome.

Their in-house DJs spin the tunes into the wee hours, and you can get some tasty snacks before you hit the dance floor, too.

Black Sand Brewery

If you’re more in the mood for a pub environment, why not try Black Sand Brewery?

Not only does Black Sand Brewery brew Bali’s craft beers, but it also imports a variety of other beers.

You can enjoy views over the rice fields from the beer garden, and the crowd here tends to be relaxed and unpretentious.

Try their food. The mac and cheese brisket croquettes are super tasty and the ideal companion to a lovely cold schooner.

Revolver Espresso

Revolver is open all day long, dispensing rather excellent coffees, and it’s easy to forget how fast it transforms into an aperitivo lounge in the evenings.

Yes, they go from a coffee shop to coffee-inspired cocktails at the drop of a hat.

On Fridays, if you’re looking for a wild night out with good vibes, you can do much worse than the party at Revolver.

There’s a good reason that Revolver makes it onto most people’s best bars in the Canggu list.

Bar Souvenir

The low-intervention wine list at Bar Souvenir is considered one of the best in Bali, and if you want one of the best bars in Canggu for a quiet drink, this is it.

This cocktail bar is always happy to experiment with new flavours and the latest drinks (what they can do with cherry liquor is impressive).

Whatever you have to drink, we can recommend their grazing plates of tasty cheese from around the world. They’re super delicious.

Lacalita Bar Y Cocina

If you want an authentic Mexcian cantina vibe, you’ll find it in the tasty food at Lacalita Bar.

This bar has a superb Friday Flights night where you get a huge flight of different tequilas for a small price to start the weekend right.

We like the brightly decorated interiors, which help keep this place welcoming even when packed out.

Roots

Roots is a plant-based cafe, and they also keep to that philosophy with their signature cocktails.

Try their Apple & Snake Fruit Shrub, which combines local flavours with bourbon to deliver a memorable kick when you drain the glass.

The Shady Fox

The Shady family has opened a range of cocktail bars and speakeasies across Bali, and The Shady Fox is one of the best bars in Canggu.

You’ll have fun here if you enjoy live music and a bit of theatre to create your favourite cocktails. Try the Queen of Heart, their house special, to get started.

The Shady Pig

The Shady Pig is a touch more glamorous than The Shady Fox, and they love to get experimental when putting together a Saturday night cocktail.

This location even makes its own spirits and uses local herbs to infuse the offerings. The Chester is our favourite, which blends wine, whiskey, and more to create a unique taste!

Leblon

This bar was inspired by the Brazilian capital, Rio De Janeiro, and it’s a place to drink and be seen as part of the beautiful people.

As you’d expect, they do a fantastic caipirinha, and their garlic prawns are to die for, too.

The indoors meets outdoors setting makes for a lovely place to do a night-long drinking session.

Penny Lane

This swanky venue has ultra-mod interiors and plenty of great drinks, from local beers to high-end cocktails.

We like that they’ve gone all out on the spectacle of things, and you can enjoy indoor palm trees, rubbing shoulders with spectacular chandeliers, and so much more!

Ji Terrace by The Sea

Asian-infused cocktails are the name of the game at Ji, and you can get the best sunset tunes to accompany them.

It’s the panoramic views of Canggu Beach that people go for, though everything else has to take second place to that.

The Bench

The Bench is a sports bar with some decent happy hours, and they brew their beer on-site.

We like that they also have a proper pool table for you to enjoy between events.

The Barn

If you’re in the mood for a traditional British boozer, then The Barn is your home away from home.

This gastropub offers solid food, a decent list of imported wines, and some excellent signature cocktails.

They also do a Sunday roast on the weekends. You can’t ask for more than that, right?

Deus Ex Machina

This gallery, skate ramp, motorbike repair centre and bar are very much targeted at the biker crowd.

However, given the cheap happy hours, they tend to attract plenty of people searching for a cold one at a reasonable price.

Luigi’s Hot Pizza

Luigi’s Hot Pizza isn’t just about metre-long pizzas. It’s also about some solid cocktails and a lot of fun.

You want to make a reservation because Luigi’s gets busy at night when the DJs hit the decks and the libation starts flowing.

Gimme Shelter

This rock bar is all about live music and plenty of drinks to get you in a dancing mood.

Plenty of different bands are hitting the stage each week, and if you’d like to be the show star, there’s an open mic on Monday.

Sand Bar

Sand Bar is quite literally on the sand of the beach. It’s an after-party venue, though, and you want to turn up after midnight to have a great night out.

There’s no mucking around here, either. Everybody’s drinking like their life depends on it.

Pretty Poison

This is a skate bar, and it’s all about cheap drinks and skating fun. The skaters here are often pros, so don’t expect to compete with them.

However, there are few bars on the island with this kind of unique vibe to them.

Mile-End Kitchen+Bar

Xbar

There was a time when Xbar wasn’t a bar. It was the minimart where partygoers gathered to buy pre-party drinks.

Somebody saw that and thought, Why not turn it into a bar? And then they did, and they did a great job of it.

It’s now a great spot to kick off your evening before you move on to the actual party.

Mosto Bali

Mosto is a wine bar serving up some of the best-fermented grape juice on the island.

We like the tasteful interior and enjoy working through their Italian Menu with a good glass of wine in hand.

Bistro C Sports Bar – FINNS Recreation Club

If you want to watch sports, you need a great sports bar, and Bistro C is the best of Canggu’s sports bars.

There are dozens of screens for you to watch the action from events around the world, and if there’s a major tournament on (like the soccer World Cup or the AFL finals) they set up giant screens on the beach, too.

There’s nothing better than beer, sports and great food at a beach bar set up to ensure your comfort and happiness, is there? So, don’t miss Bistro C!
