A quick guide on where to go on any particular night in the Canggu area
First, every sunset most of the Canggu community heads to the beach to chill out for the last hours of the day. There are a whole bunch of choices, which you can find on this link, but what we are talking about here on this page is the after-dark nightlife of Canggu. Read on friends.
When it comes to parties, you are bound to find something going on every night of the week. Disguised as a pizza place (the pizza is incredible btw), Luigi’s Hot Pizza kicks off the start of the week with the PNNY crew every Monday night from 8 – 12pm playing eclectic house beats to jackin’ techno. If you are up for a late-night boogie, head down to the beach end of Batu Bolong any night of the week, where Old Man’s, Sandbar, Desoner and Vletznaya are situated and some are open till very late. For the after party, Lost City in Echo Beach is also open until 4am.
Lost City’s Thursday Vice City is normally rammin’Wednesdays are one of the biggest nights of the week. With mounds of people all over the streets. Old Man’s Dirty Ol’ Wednesdays where the Beer Pong Championship takes place is always a safe bet too. Enroll yourself before dark and battle it out with dozens of other players for great prizes and lots of fun. If you are into techno then visit Desoner next door. Backyards can also pull a crowd, across the road from the Tugu Hotel. Mason Backroom, is where the more sophisticated crowd head for groovy house tunes from 9pm – 3am. And after all that you can end up at Sandbar where commercial music goes on until about 4 – 5am.
By the time your hangover from Wednesday is over, it’ll be Thursday night and the gnarliest spot on a Thursday is Pretty Poison. Think backyard skate bowl meets European dungeon nightclub. Tattoos, skate bowl action and live DJs playing everything from rock & roll, hip hop to techno. Walk over to Black Cat Mini Market next door and check out their fridge in the corner for a cheeky surprise. Lost City gathers their tribe from midnight and has their biggest night of the week with their hip hop night till late.
If you’re looking for a dope Friday night party, there are several options! The Lawn Friday nights go from 9pm till 1am with half price on selected drinks and a range of disco, house, RnB and hip-hop tunes. Vault is a safe bet on a Friday, always supplying great house music and occasional techno, while Old Man’s continues to pack in the crowds throughout the entirety of the night with their live music night. Live rocking bands can also be found most nights at Made Jay’s Gimme Shelter. The in-crowd can be found at Mason sipping cocktails till 3am. Hip hop beats are supplied at Lost City, hard techno can be heard at Desoner until 4am. And as per usual, Sandbar picks up the late-night party people to end another wild night on the beach in Canggu.
Saturday nights usually depend on whether there are any headliners at the clubs. One of the biggest parties on the island are La Brisa‘s Basement Love x PNNY events, bringing some of the most renown house & techno acts to the beach club on a bi-weekly schedule (sometimes longer). Old Man’s books decent acts on their main stage for Saturdays as well. Pretty Poison opens up and caters for all your party needs till midnight. Mason Backroom usually pulls a crowd on a Saturday till 3am. Regular events include Vault’s hip hop nights with the PNNY crew, Lost City for some underground hip hop and Desoner with the hard techno.
Sunday’s are actually a lot of fun. Deus are the pioneers of Sunday nights in Canggu. They boast beer on tap, a large crowd of expats, tourists and locals with live music action. Deus also hosts Tuesday nights with free tattoos and tacos. Desoner do their house music nights on Sunday and you can head towards Old Man’s for funk, hip hop and RnB, with the top 40 hits down by the beach at Sandbar till you drop.
That wraps up our tour through Canggu, remember to stay safe, wear a helmet and don’t drive if you’re drunk. Have fun out there!
