Murni’s Lounge Bar – Ubud’s most haunting watering hole

“Set above a gentle bend in the Agung River, Murni’s Warung holds the estimable title of being the village’s first real restaurant. Like something out of a Rudyard Kipling novel, the Lounge Bar on the second floor is crammed with museum- quality antiques, including a 400-year-old plate of armor and a Sumatran sarcophagus. Soft jazz music, old-fashioned cocktails and the sounds of the jungle lurking outside make this Ubud’s most haunting watering hole.”

Eat, Pray, Shop

A one-time haven for hippies, the village of Ubud in Bali’s southern highlands now caters to more sophisticated travelers too.
