There are a few abandoned planes on the island of Bali, but it looks like this one is getting more street cred
Think you’ve seen everything in Bali? Gate88 is a futuristic and modernist mall in one of Bali’s major areas. While there were prior plans to make the mall a ranch market, and a centre for design and arts – somewhere, plans failed. Still, on top of this buzzworthy mall sits a cool rooftop space, and on top of that, the tail of an abandoned plane. We’re not kidding.
While it’s not the usual party experience, it’s worth checking out if you’re hunting for something more alternative in the nightlife scene. Right now, it’s really just a bar and arena where the odd pop-up club night, gig or other cultural event happens, but Gate88 is still quite known in the scene for anything hip and underground.
More recently, the party people of High-Fi have revamped the place in time for their techno party. If you’re in the area this weekend, drop by to catch a set or two, from a couple of local and international DJs gracing the event. Word on the street is it won’t be last party by them up on the roof!
High-Fi, 1 July, Gate 8, Jl. Kerobokan 88, Bali
