Pyramid is a club in Bali, popular with expatriates and local clubbers. It is on Jalan Dewi Sri, a street at the intersection of Kuta and Legian. A late-night venue, it starts to get busy at 2am or 3am only, once all the other bars and clubs in Bali have closed. I see it as an upper class alternative to the infamous DeeJay Café near Kartika Plaza.
Open since 2012, Pyramid Club Bali comes to life around midnight with its real rave scene kicking in a few hours later. The club is well positioned near the northern end of Kuta’s Jalan Dewi Sri, a conveniently central location that provides easy access for late crawlers from the notoriously bubbly nightlife areas of Legian and Seminyak, which are famous for their mix of bars and entertainment venues.
As the name suggests there is an Egyptian theme, with the walls lined with sandstone reliefs of hieroglyphics. Quiet stunning, as the carvings are 2-3 metres tall. There are other Egyptian touches here and there. Legian Bali night club The Pyramid is a big club, with a good bar to hang out on along with some plush couches and a large downstairs dance floor area where there are more tables and stools along with lots of room to dance. And dance you do, music is modern, tech house it is called (though how to keep track of the variations in what simply used to be house music, is very complex as DJs try to define their gig) and good rhythym.
The resident DJ roster includes Nathan and Shammui Masjudi from Indonesia, together with international DJs from Singapore, Greece, Spain and the UK, while guest DJs flown in include well seasoned players from Brazil, France, Holland and Japan. Their events are also quirkily named following its Egyptian theme, such as ‘Cleopatra’, ‘October Sphinx’ and ‘Knight of Anubis’, which usually start from 23:00 onwards with free entry and amazing late bottle promotions through 02:00 in the morning. Nicknamed the ‘Beat Room’, the main venue sometimes also highlights rock n’ roll nights with live bands taking to the stage.
