You will want the bar to be comfy, clean, safe, and friendly. You’ll want that everyone in the group can have a blast and enjoying the night out.

How to Find Good Bars in Seminyak Bali

No Sticky Floor

If you come to a bar, you’d expect it to be clean. Especially if you come early in the evening and just looking for a chill. One thing you should notice the first time you head on a bar is the floor. They don’t have to be starkly clean—they just have to be clean and not sticky at all. If the floor is sticky, that’s a sure signs that you need to head back to the door. Cause who knows how clean they are with the drinking glasses.

There’s A Ton of Reviews Online

Some of the best bars in Seminyak Bali are so great with their quality and services that leaves impressive memory to their guests. The availability of (positive) online reviews is a quick indicator of a good bar. Perhaps they have great cocktails, unique theme, lively crowds, or blazing good musics.

Welcoming Staffs

When you were greeted like a guest coming to a party, you know you are coming to a good bar. Good vibes are contagious, and it all starts from the staffs. You don’t want to be in a bar where the staffs are grumpy and giving off awkward bad vibes. Unwelcoming bartender and staffs could be an indicator of poor management or horrible working condition, and you wouldn’t want to pick up on that. 

Enough Tables and Chairs to Relax

—and enough spaces for everyone to move. Sometimes a bar is just so popular that people are lining up to get inside and get checked by totalitarian guards, only to find themselves in a too jam-packed venue where even moving an arm is nearly impossible. This is the hard truth: a popular bar is not always a good bar. Most of the time, people flocks there just because their FOMO (fear of missing out). A good bar should allow you to talk, share, engage, dance, and overall enjoying yourself without being squeezed by hundreds of people.

Quality Drink and Fresh Fruits on Your Cocktails

Good bars in Seminyak Bali know that their drinks is the face of the establishment. After all, the final decision would fall on how good the drink is—even on a small humble bar. Look at the quality of the ingredients on your glass. The ice should be clear, the drink is not off-color, nothing looks odd, and the fruit garnish should be fresh. If you are ordering a juicy drink, the juice had better be real and fresh. You wouldn’t want to pay IDR 200K only to have sad, wrinkled, dried out fruit sitting on your cocktail.
