Laughing Buddha Bar

Laughing Buddha Bar is one of the liveliest spots to enjoy regular live bands that play Jazz, blues-rock, freestyle acoustic, fusion and world music. This popular evening hangout just halfway up from the Ubud Monkey Forest also features salsa nights. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, you can savour Asian fusion delights from its eclectic menu, with cooling ice blended juices, and its ‘Buddhalicious’ line of signature cocktails.

Jalan Monkey Forest is lined with various boutiques, restaurants and bars, but one venue that seems to constantly get its share of punters in the evening is Laughing Buddha Bar. For those staying at any of the hotels or guesthouses in ‘downtown’ Ubud, walking to this spot is a breeze. Passersby are attracted by its near-street-side band and sound system setup. Step right in and you instantly become part of the scene.
