A great place to eat, drink and recreate. The comforts of home have been brought to Ubud. Play pool, throw darts, have a few drinks and some ribs, pizza, Tex-Mex, or burgers and such. Comfortable seating and great atmosphere that includes the flag of every country. As a guest, one is entitled to sign the flag of their origin. Great place to see sporting events on the big screens as well.

Cheeseburger in Paradise!

I had been living the vegetarian organic lifestyle in Bali for two weeks, until I saw The Melting Pot Saloon near my hotel. The large TV screens, flags, and pool tables intrigued me.

Great place to play on good tables, best pool hall in Ubud hands down! Chilli cheese fries are good and so is the burger. They have 8 ball competitions on Tuesdays and 10 ball on Fridays. They also have other games, foosball, arcade games, ping pong, darts. Great place for a night out with the boys!

When we walked in it looked like a place right up our alley....we were looking for a good place to play pool. This is one of the only places where you have to pay for pool in all of Asia. Normally tables are free but here they charge 50,000 rupiah for an hour which is more expensive than my home... More

Visited Melting Pot Saloon a couple of times while in Ubud - it's a great spot with billiards, cheap beer, tasty food and easily accessible from all main streets. Will definitely visit again!

We visited Bali during the Bledisloe season so it was imperative we found a place that was playing the game because my partner wasn't missing it. Emailed the Melting Pot a couple weeks beforehand and the owner replied quickly and advised they would be streaming it so this is where we ended up. Was a great little place. We arrived... More

The owner took the time to data stream the Cricket Test for us. The beer is on ice and the coldest we've had so far. BBQ ribs are great, fall to pieces and very tasty. Follow up with the enchiladas, good amount of spice and goes brilliantly with the cold beer. Music is is great, pool tables are really straight.... More

This place had a lot of charm - where else could you find the flag for the great state of Illinois in the heart of Indonesia? Greg is a very friendly proprietor and it was nice to see some American charm in Bali. The food is good and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is even better. You won't go wrong... More

A different vibe from other places we visited in Ubud. It has flags all over the walls, and its fun to play the "lets find our flag" game. Drinks are cheap (but they are just about everywhere). Food is nothing special, but if you need queso then this is your place. They do have big screens for sport, and i... More

We definitely have a very different vibe here. There's very few hints that we're even in Indonesian. People often refer to us as an oasis of a sort. Typically we serve as a place that reminds Westerners of home. Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Cheers Greg More
