While Ubud is serene in comparison to Kuta or Seminyak and doesn’t go in for wild night-life, there’s still a good range of interesting entertainment on offer if you know where to look. From wine tastings to art exhibition openings, gigs by some of the island’s hottest young musicians to talks by international authors, you’ll find the best of them listed in our Events Calendar.
See our Festivals section for details on the two biggest events of the year in Ubud: the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival (held every October) and the Bali Spirit Festival in March. There’s also a new festival in town: the Ubud Village Jazz Festival, which will be held annually from here.
Below we’ve listed some of the venues that provide entertainment through the week, all through the year. Try these venues if you’re looking for a fun night out that doesn’t need a lot of planning or cash.
