Labuan Bajo is only a small town on Flores Island, with a population of around 220,000 people. The nightlife scene in Labuan Bajo is quite laid back with bars closing quite early (before midnight). There are some cool bars with live music but it is more relaxed than a wild party scene.
The sunsets in Labuan Bajo are amazing and many of the bars have great views over the harbour to watch the sunsets. The bars often have happy hour during the time of sunset.
Check out the best bars in Labuan Bajo:
Paradise Bar is the best bar in Labuan Bajo to watch the sunset. Paradise Bar is located on the hill around 10 minute walk away from the town centre.
They have a fully stock bar and they have a full food menu. They have live music every night of the week starting after sunset.
Le Pirate Lounge and Deck Bar
Le Pirate Lounge and Deck Bar are located right in the town centre of Labuan Bajo. One of the most popular bars and restaurants in Labuan Bajo spread across 3 floors.
The very top floor is referred to as The Deck, with loads of bean bags and comfy sofas to sit back and chill and watch the sunset.
I can highly recommend the food at Le Pirate. They have a full menu serving up Indonesia food, Asian dishes and some international food including some delicious toasted sandwiches.
