Okay, I’ll tell you right off the bat, I use the word “nightclub” very loosely in this article. The fact of the matter is, there are no real night clubs in Ubud. However, when you talk to locals, they often refer to these places as the clubs of Ubud.
But think of them as more of lounges with a small dance floor section that may or may not have people dancing after midnight.
#1 Best Nightclub / Lounge in Ubud:
XL Lounge and Shisha Bar
When I first arrived in Ubud, Iasked the owner of the hotel about the best nightclub in the city. This was his recommendation as being the best club in Ubud. (Yes, he used the word club
When I arrived, I started to laughed. It was far from a club I could imagine, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t have potential. It’s a very comfortable lounge style environment with sofas and lounge chairs all over the place.
But, don’t sell this place short. It has a certain charm with music, a small dance floor, and quite a few foreign women who are the backpackers and Yogi types. (Eat, Pray, Love style…which is what Ubud is known form.)
#2 Best Nightclub / Lounge in Ubud:
CP Nightclub and Lounge
Very similar to XL Lounge but about double the size and features a pool table. I wouldn’t really recommend one over the other, they are basically the same place who will feature similar reggae bands on certain days.
The women situation is the same as just about everywhere in Ubud. You have overweight backpacker women mixed with some Yogi types who can have a great “yoga made” body.

As mentioned this website, Ubud is far from being the party center for Indonesia. However, it is one of the most popular destinations in Bali for singles and couples alike.
