We went to Sama Sama for reggae music and the band gave us even more than that. It was a fun April night with a lot of other tourists having the time of their lives at the Gilis.

Definitely a highlight of the nightlife scene on Gili T! Amazing band when we visited and really packed the place out (in a good way - almost like at a concert). There's also great seats upstairs to view the band if you don't want to be in the thick of it downstairs. Love it!

This bar has a really nice feel and great staff. The drinks were pretty reasonably priced but didn't skimp on the alcohol. We stayed for the live reggae band that were there and they were amazing, the atmosphere was great.
