Three hints for visiting Balis most hyped Bar – The Rock Bar
Yes, we finally did it and visited Balis most hyped bar, the Rock Bar! There are so many popular bars and restaurants in Bali, but The Rock Bar became a tourist attraction. It belongs to the Ayana Resort, is located at the southern tip of Jimbaran and offers an awesome view over the indian ocean. It is named Rock Bar, because it’s lying in the cliffs and has many rocks around.
So if you have planned a trip to the Rock Bar, just read my three hot tips below.
1. The Rock Bar is crowded during sunset!
It is not possible to make a reservation. You have to be a group of at least 20 people, then they arrange a private area for you.
We were told to arrive at 4pm to get a table for the sunset spectacle. A few minutes past 5pm every table was occupied and the queue of waiting people became longer.
So if you want to enjoy the sunset (around 6.15pm), arrive early to get a table!
2. It’s getting hot in here!
When you arrive in the afternoon you will be welcomed by a killing heat. There are no sunshades or shadow places in this bar. The waiter offers you an umbrella, but this is not so comfortable for relaxing at your table.
Normally I would recommend to wear as less as possible, but there is a dress code you have to stick to. No board shorts, no singlets – come in a smart-casual look!
3. German prizes!
Usually I am not shocked by high prizes in bars and restaurants because I live in Hamburg for years. Here in Bali you get used to cheap prizes so fast, because you get a big meal for around 2EUR.
An ordinary cocktail at the Rock Bar costs around 11EUR and this is a lot for Bali!
From 9pm to 11pm is happy hour, where you get two drinks for paying one.
All in all our visit at the Rock Bar was great, because the atmosphere an scenery are stunning! The blue indian ocean with its waves coming to the cliffs and the beautiful sunset…
We didn’t have our camera with us so I made these pictures with my iphone.
