“The BEST bar in town!!!”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

If you are ever in Padangbai for a night, sitting for a few hours in Sunshine is a definite must.. I first met Koming, Ketut and Nyoman in 2008 and have come back as many times as possible since then. The nicest most genuine people you will ever meet and you are guaranteed a night of laughs, great music and TOP quality arak. The band play a selection of classic and modern tunes to an excellent standard, you are more than welcome to request or get up and sing or play guitar if you want too... All staff are beyond friendly and the drinks are very good value. Don't just take my word for it go and say hello I guarantee you won't be disappointed and you'll end up with friends for life.

Cheers again brother il be back VERy soon

“<3 this place and especially the people!”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

The sunshine bar is definitely the best bar in Padang Bai. great drinks, best of friends, live music is really really good (I enjoy live music nights) I have spent many of nights here over the years and have always had the best of times. Lovely chats, card games, laughs and always a great time. Koming the owner is always up for a chat and all the staff at sunshine are awesome. You guys are the best :)

“Good musicians, friendly stuff and an lovely owner!”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

In Padangbai, closed to the Harbour pier next to the parking area (only in the morning). they have 3 Bars. The best one for me is SunshineBar.

They have great live music on Thursday, Sunday and Monday, the best drinks, a clean Bar and toilett and a friendly and considerate stuff :) At 8:30 pm the live music starts and if you want you can join the band with a second microphone.
Outside there is a long table, where you can sit and relax or you can have a good talk with some tourists or locals. On the days without live music you can go there too, to have a very nice and funny talk with the owner. Always good, after a rough diving day :)
Sunshine Bar is the place to be!

“Great cold beer”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

This place is also a good place to just sit and have a good cold beer and something to eat. Not far from anywhere and the staff do not bother you to keep drinking or eating and at night it gets a little busy but a lot of fun.
