There's little to differentiate one from another, with the focus simply being on cheap drinks with beachside seating — even though you're on the wrong side of the island for sunset.

Scallywags is popular and has a good drinks list, so if you're looking for a bit more of an upmarket drink, head there.

Generally speaking, the party scene isn't nearly as bustling on Gili Air as on Gili Trawangan, but what there is of it is here, so just take a walk along and see where is hopping.

There's one exception to this: the aptly named Space Bar half way up the west coast. Decorated with a six-pack of fluorescent and glow-in-the-dark paints, the scene is a bit silly (picture bad dancing, distorted reality and a heavy bassline) but obviously popular with some.
