Blu Jaz Café is a highly popular, three-storey restaurant-cum-bar on Bali Lane. It offers alfresco dining on the ground level but bar counters are available on all three levels. Most patrons dine on the ground level before proceeding upstairs for drinks as the second and third levels are air-conditioned chill-out lounges.
