New Year’s Eve in Ubud has always been a hidden gem. While the party zones in the South of Bali are drowning in traffic, packed bars that you can’t get a drink in, and packed restaurants you can’t get a table at, a busier than normal Ubud becomes an awesome place to celebrate New Year’s Eve 2022.
Those who haven’t experienced New Year’s Eve in Bali choose to party in the South and find themselves stuck in gridlock. Those who know, choose a place like Ubud and find themselves in a more refined, eclectic environment where the party energy is alive but there’s still room to breathe.
So, what does Ubud have in store for the New Year’s Eve partiers of 2022? Well, my money is on Cantina/Boliche.
So what is this place that those in the know have chosen as their Ubud New Year’s eve destination? Read on…
Cantina restaurant sits in the valley above Ubud’s amazing Gunung Lebah Temple. A tastefully decorated open air experience with incredible views and even more amazing food. For all the details on Cantina’s offerings for New Year’s Eve 2022 please check out the full writeup in Now Bali.
Since this article is mostly focused on the party aspect of New Year’s Eve in Ubud I’ll talk more about Boliche, the bar attached to Cantina.
Starting at 8PM, Boliche will begin an epic musical journey of back-to-back DJ sets featuring island-favourite artists. After dinner, both Cantina and Boliche will become distinct party areas – each with their own DJ and bar, with drinks specials going all night. Enjoy the intimate, soundproofed indoor party space of Boliche, or the open-air atmosphere of Cantina until the wee hours of 2023 — now that’s how to ring in the new year! Boliche is open for guests not joining dinner starting from 8PM onwards.
Excited? I know we are! I think that this is going to be the best Ubud New Year’s Eve party spot for 2022!
For Boliche: Put on your party hat and show up after 8pm!
