Inspired by speakeasies from the intriguing Prohibition era, with a dash of New York City bar scene, 40 Thieves Club barely needs further introduction. The brainchild of entrepreneur/cheeky life of the party Shah Dillon from Midnight Brigade Group, 40 Thieves is elusively concealed on the second floor of the Mad Ronin ramen shop. Even without any signage giving away the bar, 40 Thieves has acquired its own band of loyal followers in the few years it’s been open.
The popularity of 40 Thieves is built upon several elements that work well together, from quality products that ensure the clientele enjoys potent and refined libations, to the unassuming vibe that’s laid-back and lively at the same time, and let’s not forget the curated tunes on spin by Bali’s coolest DJs. Festive and also intimate, the “where everybody knows your name” line from 80s TV show Cheers would be a perfect way to describe 40 Thieves, and that’s what differentiates this bar from the rest of its counterparts.
The most popular happening at 40 Thieves is the Boogie and Bourbon every Friday and Saturday night, comprising disco tracks and a 2-for-1 cocktail deal. In addition to that, the always vibrant 40 Thieves also regularly holds fun bar-related events, from hosting local and international guest bartenders and masterclasses, to the notoriously exciting 40 Thieves Throwdown – a tournament-style competition to determine the best bartender in Bali.
Whether you want to dance the night away or to chill over quality cocktails, 40 Thieves is the place to be. Of course, the hearty ramen served downstairs makes a good pre- or post-drinking meal, so it’s a win all around.
