Old Man’s beach bar and beer garden is the focal point of hipster hangout Canggu. It’s a super relaxed, all-day venue, brilliantly situated for one of Bali’s best surfing beaches. It’s not a cocktail spot per se, but the Espresso Martinis are dangerously moreish, and they serve reasonably priced Prosecco (which always makes us happy). There’s an abundance of lovely ice-cold beer and early in the week they run a popular happy hour from 5 to 6. Set a bit back from the foreshore, the bar has a really nice laid-back vibe, lively but also chilled. There’s a simple food menu available featuring a choice of burgers, salads and pastas, as well as some Asian dishes, and the place tends to attract a younger crowd than other Echo Beach bars. There’s table tennis and loads of seats in which to kick back with a beer with sun on your back and a great view of the ocean.
