Those who want to learn more about the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Bali will do so right here. We will also be discussing topics like mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows and more in our full LGBT nightlife guide.
A few pride events will be covered as this post goes on. Plus in this modern world that we live in it would be quite silly for us to leave out the best LGBT dating sites in Indonesia.
Not all of you will be interested in going out to a lesbian or gay bar or nightclub to try and meet people near you so we will try to cover all the bases so that you can pick out which option you think is best for you.
Best LGBT Bars & Clubs In Bali
Let’s kick this off with a list of the best mixed LGBT bars and nightclubs in Bali:
- Mixwell Bar on Jalan Camplung Tanduk, Seminyak
- Finns Beach Club on Jalan Pantai Selatan Gau
- Bali Joe at Jalan Camplung Tanduk 8
- Sky Garden at Jalan Legian 61
- F Bar in Seminyak, Badung Regency
- Old Man’s on Jalan Batu Bolong Beach

Best Gay Bars & Clubs
If you are looking for gay bars and clubs in Bali for men to meet men all of the spots we just listed will work out well. We used to live in a world where things were more separated, but these days most venues in Indonesia have become more inclusive and LGBT friendly instead of strictly gay bars.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Bali
Along those same lines we are not aware of any straight up lesbian bars in Bali for women to meet women. If the above venues don’t offer what you are looking for you may need to hit up some other spots that aren’t necessarily known as LGBT pick up places.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
While these may not exactly be trans bars in Bali you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at:
- Drag Shows at Joe Bar
- Drag Shows at Bali Beach Shack
- Mixwell Bar
Our number one goal is to have our lists be as up to date as possible but we cover so many cities around the world that it is very hard for us to keep up. We know the scene here pretty well, but not as well as the local experts which is why we need an assist.
If you happen to notice anything out of date on this page or if we left some place off that is a can’t miss please use the comments to let us know. Also, if you think any venues should be listed as solely places for men to meet men or women to meet women fill us in, thanks if you can help.
The main gay area is in Seminyak on Jalan Camplung Tanduk Arcade and you can find just about everything you need in that gayborhood. You may also be interested in reading our posts on:
Weekly, Monthly, & Pride Events
Oldman’s Beach Clean Up at Old Man’s on Saturdays is a party that you will not want to miss. And then you have annual events like:
- Gay Pride Bali in June
- Legian Beach Festival in November
Best LGBT Dating Sites
Gay bars were just about the only places to try and find other LGBT people near you for dating or hook ups twenty years ago. Fortunately that is not how it is anymore.
It is pretty safe to guess that most of you have seen Adult Friend Finder links around the web. After all it is the biggest hook up site on the planet and has been for almost twenty years.
Men Nation is the site for finding gay men near you to hook up with in their vast network of sites and you might be surprised at how many users it has around the globe. The ladies will be better off on Lesbian Personals which is obviously just for them.
Bi-sexuals who enjoy hooking up with all the colors of the rainbow can go with Adult Friend Finder. It merges all the users on their many sites which are not only straight and LGBT but also include swingers and other kinky people.
So if you want fast m4m hook ups use Men Nation, and for f4f hook ups use Lesbian Personals. We have to be honest and say we aren’t sure how great they will work for you here in Indonesia, but if you are reading this while planning a trip they work great in most cities across Australia, Europe, and the US.
The world’s top transgender dating site is MyTransgenderDate and it can also help some of you out. Trans dating in Bali is bigger and better than ever as more Indonesian ts near you are finally comfortable living the life they want to live.
Alright then, we have told you all about the Bali LGBT nightlife as best as we know how. You learned all about mixed, gay, or lesbian bars and clubs plus drag shows to party with trans and all sorts of LGBT dating sites to use in Indonesia or back in the city where you live. We hope you make the most of the information at hand.
