AYANA Bali opens new two-storey venue, After Rock

AYANA Bali has announced the opening of After Rock, the sister venue to its iconic Rock Bar which underwent a rebranding in May.

This state-of-the-art, two-story venue features six distinct areas, including lounges, an outdoor rooftop space and versatile VIP rooms for more intimate gatherings.

Designed by the renowned Indonesian firm Cipta Setia Wijaya, the entire 1,600-square-metre venue is available for exclusive buy-outs, ensuring a personalised event experience.

“Every detail of After Rock has been meticulously crafted, from the attentive service of our staff to the intricate flavours of our cocktails and cuisine,” says Giordano Faggioli, General Manager of AYANA Resort.

The ground floor stage area accommodates 130 guests and will feature performances against a stunning nine-metre-tall kinetic laser video wall. Adjacent to the stage, the VIP Room hosts private gatherings for up to 35 guests.

Meanwhile, the mezzanine floor holds a capacity for up to 30 guests and includes its own VIP Room for up to 25 people.

Both VIP rooms offer options to watch the live entertainment on stage or host your own intimate music or karaoke session.

After Rock’s rooftop offers views of lush gardens and the majestic SAKA Museum, AYANA’s Balinese cultural centre. Able to host up to 100 guests, this outdoor space provides a relaxed ambience under the stars.
