If you have an adventurous spirit and like to explore new places and things than getting lost in a labyrinth of Poppies Lane 1 and 2 in Kuta is just a perfect solution for your holidays. Those two alleys are located on south end of Jalan Legian and most popular as a backpacker district. That said – there is everything that you need in life located here and often working 24 hours a day.
If you want to sit down in some of the restaurants and dine beneath a canopy of flowers, amidst pools and waterfalls while savoring the delights of fresh seafood or exquisite Indonesian and international cuisine – it is possible. Or if you want to unwind with a few drinks – there are zillion places to chose from. But perhaps the Poppies 1 and 2 are a fasci- nating area for a pub crawl. It is virtual wall to wall pubs and tiny surfer friendly bars which can be a great place for either a quiet drink or a rockin’ good time. Many are eccentrically designed and offer loads of character and several stay open 24 hours a day.
Whether you want to have a steak, pizza or nasi goreng, beer or a cocktail there are new bars popping up all the time, and you will never be bored here. It is also just 200 meters from famous Kuta Beach and a few minutes away to some of the best-known clubs in Legian. You can enjoy sundowners in a breezy beach bar, party hard in Kuta’s designer dance clubs or rock out in one of the vibrant surfer pubs – everything is close, and you will not need a scooter. It is quite feasible to hop from venue to venue all night long without venturing too far and almost every club offers free entry for foreign tourists.
Nightlife in Legian is a rich mix of night- clubs and dining spots that open up until late along the main Jalan Legian which connects Kuta and Seminyak. After you have spent the day relaxing on the beach, you will never run short of options for nightlife in Legian after the sunset. The area is actually home to some of Bali’s favorite bars and clubs and always promises a night to remember. Famed for its all action night- life, this area is by far the most eclectic and lively in Bali and offers something for every occasion. it is well worth ex- ploring!■
