    Where to Go after Dark in Lombok Island

    Senggigi is the most upbeat and populated area of the island and while still relatively low key when compared to Bali, you can find a number of late-night venues with live music until the early hours and free flowing drinks.  Amongst these venues, two worth checking out are the Papaya and Sugar Café.

    Mataram is fairly quiet and at night there are a few coffee shops and restaurants open till late, the upside being that most of these venues are free to enter. The Marina Pub is probably the most frequented bar around this area, a good place to meet locals and dance along to the live band. Besides drinking and dining, cultural shows are often put on in the resorts. In this environment you can sit back enjoy the buffet and experience some of Indonesia's ancient and unique forms of dance and performance, a highlight being the intricately designed traditional costumes.

    In recent years the Gili islands have emerged as party locations, where local DJ's spin until the early hours on the beaches.

Happy Cafe

This is a popular haunt with locals and expatriates who come to enjoy the live entertainment and sushi bar. Drinks are reasonably priced and the international crowd is usually good for creating a friendly atmosphere. 

  • Address: Jalan Raya Senggigi, Lombok

Horizontal Bar and Lounge

Perhaps the area's most hip and modern venue, Horizontal bar and Lounge could well be the shape of things to come around here. The sublimely relaxed bar is situated at the north end of the beach on Gili Terawangan, and is a popular sunset and cocktail haunt.

  • Address: Gili Trawangan

Irish Pub

Situated on Gili Trawangan, being the area's only Irish pub its reputation precedes it. Great fun to be had here; live entertainment and an upbeat crowd make it a popular choice for visitors.

  • Address: Gili Trawangan

Sahara Club

One of the few venues on the island that has an entrance fee and subsequently a casual dress code, so it's probably best to wear a shirt and shoes.  The club plays host to live music and gets DJ’s over from the mainland. If you there on the right night the place can really go off.

  • Address: Senggigi Plaza

Sugar Cafe and Bar

A gay-friendly Bar in Senggigi, where cabaret shows often raise the tempo for visitors during the busy season. Reasonably priced drinks teamed with smiling service makes this worth checking out just once, if not just for the atmospheric value.
