Gu crew: join us in saying HIP-HOP-HOORAY to the opening of Pablo’s Canggu – The Gu’s hottest new nightspot. Ready to wipe out the nightclub competition along Batu Bolong, we’d call this a cartel if it weren’t for one little detail – the prices are crazy cheap – like we’re talking 60k large-plate pizzas and 60k cocktails. What-now? Yep. Read on amigos, for Pablo’s Canggu is about to be your new favorito.
A pumping attic with a spicy south-of-the-border flayva – Pablo’s interiors are a dizzying mix of poppin’ pastels, sick graphics and neon e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. Pay your respects to El Patron himself with a tequila shot beneath the stained glass Pablo Escobar shrine, glistening behind the DJ booth. If you don’t get drunk off the dope vibes of this place, you sure will off a shot or two of their signature “Te Amo” shooters – a slap in the face mix of vodka, cranberry juice and grenadine – bottoms up!
Now Pablo’s is all about the tunes. Old school hip hop tracks will have you scrambling to the dance floor to drop it like it’s hot before you’ve even finished your first drink.Tupac, Biggie, TLC, Aaliyah, Warren G, Naughty By Nature, Ja Rule, Nate Dogg… all on rotation. (Finally Canggu!)
With two bars inside a compact space, you wont go thirsty – but our advice is to keep the cocktails flowing, as the D-floor sure gets heated – don’t say we didn’t warn you! Throw down a Medellin Mojito – a refreshingly tropical hit of rum, passion fruit puree, lime and mint for when the beat drops and the temp rises. Be sure to try out some of their other house specialties like the Colombian Sunrise or Tata Escobar, for a truly authentic night-at-Pablo’s experience – where excess is celebrated.
If you’re down for a little chill, make sure you get in early and score yourself a seat in the lounge upstairs for a few slices and relaxed warm up before this place really starts to pump around 10.30. Huh? Slices? Oh yeah, Pablo’s boasts a delish gourmet pizza menu to cater to the earlier dinner crowd (or let’s be honest, to soak up that vodka-tequila-shooter thing that just got the better of you!). Special mention to the Quattro Formaggi with four special Italian cheeses including blue and the Boscaiola, with mozzarella, bacon and mushroom. Yum and yum!
Find Pablo’s Canggu right on the popular Batu Bolong junction. Find Roti Canai (next to Betelnut Cafe), and look up. You can’t miss that decor – like a dizzying Columbian streetscape. With old school 90s, R&B and hip hop every Friday, Saturday and Sunday – Pablo’s Canggu is about to become your new hang – cheers to the freakin’ weekend. We’ll drink to that.
