“Come on, babe. Why don’t we paint the town? And all that jazz.” I don’t know if you know this, but Bali always has a thing for Jazz. Just wait and see in a couple of months, and there will be Jazz festivals throughout the island. You can also find many places that dedicate themselves for Jazz, while some offers Jazz for entertainment purposes only. If you’re like me, and recently decided that you love the genre after watching La La Land, then you’re in for a treat because these places have great Jazz night in Bali.
