We all got to admit, sometimes good food is just not enough. Good food and great ambiance? Almost. Now what’s the ultimate key for a great night? You’ve guessed it; live music. Be it by yourself, with your partner, or a group of friends, a groovy live music will definitely make your dinner date ten times better.

Since our goal is to give you the best experience of Bali, here we listed ten best places that provide magical night trifecta; good food, great ambience, and top-notch live performance.

This has to be the first place we mentioned on this list, why? Because not only that we find them one of the most recommended Asian fusion & Western restaurants in town, they never fail to orchestrate a truly enjoyable and unforgettable night with their splendid band taking requests and guests get in the groove and dance.

Their music choice is rather unique compared to the rest on this list, with acoustic session starts at 6 PM followed by full on rock band at 8 PM. While your ears are being pampered by the music, take our recommendation and try their Rendang, Soft Shell Crab Salad, and for dessert, go with Nutella Deep Fried Ice Cream that guaranteed will satisfy your sweet tooth cravings.
