This saloon is totally unexpected in this corner of the world. It's constantly expanding with 8 pool tables, ping pong, foozeball and video games. I found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. its a great place to meet expats and fellow travelers...even has a few friendly dogs running around the place at times. the burgers where outstanding and those...

This place is not excellent. It is expensive and the food is not great. But... They are the only sports bar in Ubud. Came here to watch Real and Athletic de Madrid and the bar was packed until the end of the game. If you need to watch any game, this is the place in Ubud.

Nothing special. It's got pool, drab food and cold drinks. If you are looking for fine dining and showed up here I'd question your research.

Nothing special about this place. Beer was cold....:) and they show the NRL Apart from that there was nothing special to write about. Sound didn't even work for the footy....

Well, we may not be anything special….. but You certainly are. There were between 8 & 10 people here watching the NRL game that you are referring to, and no one other than yourself was upset about the fact that for some reason, the sound was unobtainable. Having arrived late for the game, you missed out on the exhaustive efforts... More

This was a rather unexpected find in Ubud, but most pleasant. Beer, pool, friendly locals whilst playing spot the flag.

After a boring rainy night in Ubud spent reading past reviews of this place, I figured I had to stop in the next day for a beer on the way to Taco Casa, just to see what had gotten the 'eat pray love' folks so wound up...

Hallelujah! Thanks much for recognizing us as such….. a Saloon. Thanks as also for a well thought-out review. However, I do take exception to one small but important detail. Of our regular sized beer, there are 7 in number. Our draft is actually priced at less than $3 sing/cad/aus not 4. There are also 4 beers offered at less than... More

We were looking for a sports bar to watch a popular boxing match and this came up with good reviews on TripAdvisor. Played a few games of pool and had some beers which was good, although if your expecting anything more than that then go elsewhere. They didn't have Foxtel so tried to live stream the match with alot of... More

So, you were looking for a sports bar but stopped here instead. Where is the justice in being slammed for not being something that we have never claimed to be in the first place?? We are a saloon as our name and signage clearly state. We also do our best to show some sports. Here in the 3rd world, it’s... More

Found this gem while walking around the center of Ubud. It's worth a look and pint to chill for a little. The atmosphere is fun and the service is really good! The prices are good as well! Highly recommend this place.

A great place to eat, drink and recreate. The comforts of home have been brought to Ubud. Play pool, throw darts, have a few drinks and some ribs,Tex-Mex, or burgers and such. Comfortable seating and great atmosphere that includes the flag of every country in the world. As a guest, one is entitled to sign the flag of their origin. Great place to see sporting events on the big screens as well.
