    AYANA Bali, home to the famous Rock Bar, has opened After Rock, at the island’s largest integrated resort.

    The venue says the state-of-the-art two-storey building is poised to become South Bali’s premier nightlife destination, offering unparalleled experiences in entertainment, cocktails, cuisine, and overall ambience.

    Just 12 km from Bali’s international airport, AYANA Bali enjoys a 1.3 km stretch of cliff-front coastline above Jimbaran Bay. The 90-hectare resort is home to four award-winning hotels.

    After Rock is the 30th addition to its world-class collection of dining and entertainment outlets encompassing six distinct areas that includes an elegant lounges, stage and dance floor.

    The ground floor stage area can accommodate 130 guests and will feature renowned DJs, live bands, and star cabaret performers in front of a 9-metre-tall kinetic laser video wall. The elegant VIP Room next door hosts private gatherings for up to 35 guests.

    A standout element of its cutting-edge design, After Rock also features a mezzanine floor with a capacity for up to 30 guests, and a stylish adjacent VIP Room for up to 25 people, perfect for intimate gatherings. Both VIP rooms offer the option to listen to and watch the live entertainment from the main stage, play their own music, or host private karaoke parties.

    Finally, After Rock’s rooftop boasts views of the lush gardens and architectural splendour of the SAKA Museum, AYANA’s Balinese cultural centre. Hosting up to 100 guests, the rooftop is perfect for larger celebrations and unique dining experiences, and as a space for lounge guests to enjoy AYANA’s fresh air and gaze at the stars in a relaxed ambience.

    After Rock’s versatile VIP areas make it an ideal venue for private celebrations, including birthdays, anniversaries, corporate events, and wedding after-parties. Designed by the Indonesian firm Cipta Setia Wijaya, the entire 1600-sqm venue is also available for exclusive buy-outs, ensuring a personalised event experience.

    “Every detail of After Rock has been meticulously crafted, from the attentive service of our staff to the intricate flavours of our cocktails and cuisine,” says AYANA Resort general manager, Giordano Faggioli.

    “Our team looks forward to welcoming guests to experience the new pinnacle of evening entertainment and leisure in Bali,”

    After Rock is open to the public daily from Sunday to Thursday 7pm to 2am, and until 3am on Fridays and Saturdays.
