Sanur nightlife is a total opposite of its western beach resort counterparts like Kuta, Legian and Seminyak. Evenings in Sanur are of a mature type and mostly lower key, in keeping with the quiet and laidback atmosphere of the area. Furthermore, local rules in place require some venues in certain areas to close right after midnight.

    Even so, Sanur nightlife encompasses some notable bars and pubs, where you can enjoy a great evening bite, international beers, good company and live band performances covering everything from reggae to Top 40 hits. Venues mostly overlook the beach or are street-side within walking distance from hotels, especially on the main Jalan Danau Tamblingan route.
