Boom Boom Bar In Ubud
Ubud has always been known as a quiet retreat where visitors go to kick back, relax and get away from it all. It is nothing like the beach side areas of Kuta, Legian and Seminyak where the hundreds of clubs and bars are alive until early hours of the morning.
Only a couple of short years ago the only place to go for a little entertainment in Ubud was the Jazz Club.
Things have changed a little, and now visitors have a choice of a few places to have a drink and enjoy some live music. It’s still nothing like Kuta with the live music in most places finishing well before midnight.
One of the latest bars to open and is enjoying some good success is Boom Boom Bar and Restaurant. They serve some good food and have live music every night.
The staff are friendly and make you feel welcome. The waiters can always be seen entertaining their guests with some magic or party tricks. The bar staff also put on show with their cocktail mixing, juggling and fire tricks.
There are seven different bands so unless you’re there for more than a week, you won’t here the same band twice. The music varies from night to night and includes Reggae, Blues, and Pop Rock.
Probably the most popular band is the Friday night group called Kawitana. Here is a video of Kawitana playing Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits.
So if you are in Ubud for a night or two and want a fun place to relax with a cold drink and enjoy some music, you should check out Boom Boom on Monkey Forest Road.
