Monday night really good band, Tuesday night not. Drinks quite expensive but you can understand it if you get to hear good music for that price.

Went to this place on the recommendation of a gentlemen that we met who had been living in Ubud for awhile. It's a great venue with a open front. Each night of the week seems to have great live music of a different genra (jazz, blues, salsa, rock, reggae, etc...). Check out the website for a schedule or just drop... More

Found this on a friend's recommendation. Staff were welcoming, service was prompt. Drinks were well presented and good. Food was a pleasant surprise. I can highly recommend the Seafood Laksa. My fellow diners were all happy with their selections. The stand out was the band. It was a Sunday night and the Cooltones were featuring. Stones, Dire Straits, U2, Pink... More

Great for an evening meal of tapas which was varied and tasty. To add to the atmosphere they had a live bad which was excellent but even if not, its a good place to sit and people watch.

We went here for the cooking class that was on offer. We had the choice between a couple of different menus. The class started at 11:00 and we were done around 13:00 and could try the stuff we had made. Our chef was very friendly, offered lots of explanations and answered all our questions. She is an excellent teacher, her... More

I highly reccomend Laughing Buddha for dinner, drinks and music! The Wonton soup is absolutely delicious! The crowd is fun and lively once the music begins. Great service!

There are cheaper places to eat than the Buddha during the day but it's an ok spot to sit and watch the world go by.

Had a great evening listening to live music and sharing tapas with three friends. It does get very busy on the weekend, you may need to book but mid week was no problem as a walk in, friendly staff, good food.

I frequented this bar many times when I was in Ubud. They have great live bands with different genre of music every night from Jazz, acoustic, soul to Latin. Love the Thursday soul night and Saturday latin night (salsa dance night). The atmosphere is great and the crowd will often join in the fun and dance the night away. There... More
