INTERVIEW WITH TWICE BAR (KUTA, BALI)
When was Twice Bar established?
Jrx: 1999. We were located on top of Twice Tape & CD Shop right in front of Ground Zero, thank God we moved to Poppies Lane 2 a year before the infamous first Bali bombing. Otherwise we definetly won't make it till now :)
Is it open everyday? What are the hours?
Jrx: Yes it opens everyday [except Nyepi Day]. 6 PM - 3 AM.
Is it a spot for any subcultures like: punks, skins, rockabillies, etc in Bali?
Jrx: Yes, but we don't close our door to another planet-rebel contingents. Twice is also a hangin' out spot for local tattoo artists, young bikers, hip hop crews, small time criminals, non-mainstream DJ/electronic musicians, rock n roll models/designers, BMX kids, painters, skaters and almost every part of counter culture that exist in Bali
Are you affiliated with other bars in other places in Indonesia?
Nope. But we're looking forward for that possibilities.

Is it free for the bands who want to perform at Twice Bar, or do they have to pay to play?
Jrx: It's free. And we provide them a fun-drunken night everytime they play at Twice. Good deal....
