Happy Days..A Guide To Bali's Happy Hours

Happy Hour should be every hour, if you ask us. Alas for the cocktail-loving crowd the hour can be fleeting yet rewarding when you know the right haunt to check in, and we’ve clocked in the happiest hours in Bali for your drinking pleasure.


The Deal: 2-for-1 drinks all day on Wednesday; Half-Price Drinks every Friday (4pm – late); 2 for 1 cocktails every Saturday (7pm - 10pm)

They don’t exactly call it Happy Hour but it might as well be. Ulu Cliffhouse’s Friday Half-Off is a great warm-up for the weekend where they often lassoed the best DJs in town. Their Spiced Mango Daquiri and the naughty Twisting My Melon Man is a real chiller.


The Deal: 2-for-1 selected cocktails every Monday - Thursday (4 – 6 pm).

The hip vibe and cool terraced pool equals a must-try happy hour experience. Woobar’s Sunset Session Cocktails serves up a buy-one-get-one for selected cocktails and their Lemongrass Ginger Collins is a definite keeper. Another favorite includes the spicy yet refreshing Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita. For somewhere that is usually out of budget for a non holiday blowout wallet it all suddenly seems oh so more attractive!

And for you lucky ladies— drinks are FREE for special music events from 11 pm to 1 am!! (Reaches for lippy)

The Deal: Tuesday – Thursday (10pm – 12am), 150k for 2 cocktails; Friday – Saturday (10 pm – 12am), 2-for-1 for 95k net.

A steal of a place, the original speakeasy bar 40 Thieves whips up an amazing selection of craft cocktails. The classics like the Bootlegger’s Mule and Tropical Tea Time are to-die-for, and the weekend happy hour sesh plays to the tune of their Boogie & Bourbon Friday Party and Sabbath Saturday. One for the cocktail connoisseurs and disco divas. On top of this their new sister bar, El Nacional are also running a 6-10pm with selected cocktails at just 95k!

The Deal: Every Friday (4-9pm), 2-for-1 Negronis

Fan of Negronis rejoice! The Akademi Bar, founded by award-winning mixologist Dre Masso, offers a can’t-miss 2-for-1 on all of the negroni cocktails every Friday night. Located at the lobby of Katamama Hotel, it’s a great spot to get you tipple before friyaying it at Potato Head Beach Club or elsewhere and their Nengroni’s are AMAZING!!!!

The Deal: Half price on selected cocktails (7 pm – 10 pm)

With a tropical and breezy ambiance, beach-front Mano is one of those places where it’s just perfect to get cozied up with a cocktail in hand, and it’s a good thing they excel at that too. For Happy Hour, it’s half-price on a selection of their signature cocktails.


The Deal: Every Mon – Sat (5 – 7pm)

Go laca laca with a happy dose of Mexicana. The Mexican joints—Lacalaca in Seminyak, Lacalita in Canggu, and Lacasita in Ubud—serves up a 2-for-1 for their delicious mojitos, classic margaritas, caipiroska, and sangria. Wouldn’t be a happy hour without them, right?

The Deal: Every day (5pm – 6pm)

We’re loving SugarSand for their against-the-current trend music policy… and their cocktails! Their mouthwatering original concoctions—like the Shogun Milk Punch and Umami—are courtesy of famed mixologist Sufian, who is one of the friendliest and nicest bar tenders on the island making this one of the best kept secrets in the Seminyak area. So do yourself a favour and don’t miss their 2-4-1 Happy Hour for selected cocktails and draft beer.


The Deal: 2-for-1 Every day (5 – 6pm)

For those on a budget, the Batu Bolong Godfather venue, Old Man’s is the place to be at in Canggu and has been for many years now. Their Happy Hour is every day and you can get 2-for-1 on all drinks (which is already inexpensive to begin with), so bottoms up and a guaranteed crowd!


The Deal: 2 for 1 on selected cocktails 7 - 9pm

So when you have got your hour of power drinking done down the road we suggest you take a leisurely stroll up the road to the new spot on the strip, Pablo’s. Run by a super cool crew of local boys and girls you can get another hour in 7 - 9pm on selected cocktails and spirits!


The Deal: Every Mon – Sat (5pm – 7pm)

A relatively new place in Ubud with a pool and daybeds to lounge around all day under Ubud’s cool climate. Folk Pool & Garden has a very chill vibe and their Happy Hour 2-for-1 for selected cocktails and whiskey-based drinks is great to warm up the body and the soul!

Well, there you have it. May your day be as happy as this Happy Hours! Cheers!!
