Bali Tourists Are Inspired By Magical Entertainment Venues And Eateries

Share The Article

It is true that tourists visit Bali to immerse themselves in the island’s traditional culture and natural landscapes.

But it cannot be overlooked that the Island of the Gods is home to some of the most magical and innovative nightlife hangouts in Asia. 

Exciting Food Trends Are Enticing Tourists To Bali

It seems that magic, mythology, and mysticism are trending in Bali right now. There are several nightlife hideaways in the island’s top resorts, bringing magic and wonder to life.

While tourists come to the island to taste the traditional dishes of Balinese and Indonesian culture. There is such innovation bubbling away around every corner, as such Bali tourists are also treated to the very cutting-edge theatrical dining and nightlife experiences in Bali. 

Following the success of not one but two entertainment venues in Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur, The Iron Fairies group has set up shop in Bali.

The story behind The Iron Fairies is an interesting one. The venue is the brainchild of Ashley Sutton, who worked in Australia’s mines before leading a more creative life.

Now a children’s book author and designer, Sutton’s latest endeavor in Seminyak is proving that everything he touches really does turn to gold. 

The Iron Fairies in Seminyak opened in late 2023 and has quickly caught the attention of tourists from around the world.

This magical entertainment destination is open from 7 pm til late every day. Every night, guests are treated to live music and live DJ sets from some of the finest, most creative, and eccentric artists on the island.

The Iron Fairies Seminyak is inspired by Sutton’s book. Everywhere guests look, a little fairy is hiding, waiting to be seen. The venue is spread over two levels, and guests must make a reservation to secure the best tables in the house.

A night at The Iron Fairies “Iron Fairies promises a bewitching night of live music and exceptional mixology, amidst other worldly interiors that captivate and invigorate imaginations.”

And it certainly delivers. For tourists looking for an otherworldly night out in Bali, The Iron Fairies is the perfect place for a memorable night out. 

Exceptional mixology is no understatement. The cocktail menu at The Iron Fairies is breathtaking! Signature Cocktail favorites include ‘Smoke in the Bottles’ featuring strawberry-infused vodka, elderflower sage cordial, lemon creme de basis, and a smoked cinnamon stick. 

The Old School Teacher is another must-try; the cocktail features scotch whiskey, ginger money syrup, and an absinthe spray. 

For tourists wishing to dine out surrounded by magic and wonder, then there is only one place to go. Merlin’s in Ubud has even captured the attention of social media for months and lives up to the hype. 

Whether dining in the day or the evening, the culinary experience at Merlin’s Magic is unforgettable. The menu, crafted by Culinary Director, Chef Mags, turned ancient mythological stories into epicurean delights that tantalize the senses and leave you excited for the next course.

Merlin’s is the only restaurant in the world where the food chooses you; though guests are, of course, welcome to choose their own meals from the a la carte menu. 

The menu caters to every dietary requirement, including gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free. For a little example, the Stonehenge Salad features glazed tempeh, shaved vegetables, crispy taro root, sesame, and a tamari and honey mustard dressing. 

The Excalibur Steak is a much-loved menu favorite and is served as smoked beef tenderloin, roasted garlic potatoes, king trumpet mushrooms, crispy enoki, oyster, and button mushrooms with a red wine jus. 

Looking for a magical escape a little further from the beaten path? Look no nuttier than the Sari Timbul Restaurant by Kubu Bali.

Guests at Sari Timbul Restaurant are welcomed by beautiful carvings of Mother Earth, the Garuda, and powerful lion statues.

Natural stones and manicured magical gardens decorate the traveler’s path to the restaurant. It’s seriously photogenic and seriously good food, too.

I miss the culinary experience of typical balinese dishes, like ayam betutu, serombotan, babi guling and so on. Not so many tourist aporeciate these magical and stunning dishes yet. Not to forget the kopi Bali with a shot of tuak as was promoted by his honorable governor Koster. These things are so delicious and only found on Bali!!

🦧: In Germanys discounter supper market a plastic bag of vegan deep frozen Bami Goreng (produced in Germany) weight 450 grams, costs € 4.99 some people go to supermarket to buy one or two piece of bananas only. A simple modest scooter is already priced with many thousand’s of €‘s. - Those who aren’t at least millionaires can’t afford to come to our “paradise”. 🍻🤣
