Angel in High Heels (15 and 21 March)
The fabulous Red Carpet Champagne bar is hosting a night for the ladies in high heels. The deal is great! It is a 10% discount for every inch of your heel every Wednesday. Ladies, all you need to do is find a pair of your highest heels and pop them on. Be careful though, the pavements are not well known for being smooth and even in that area. All ladies have the chance to win some amazing prizes with the wheel of fortune. If you are planning a ladies night out then the Red Carpet Champagne bar comes highly recommended on a Wednesday. The website is worth checking out as there are different activities each evening including a Sunday night music quiz night.

Miguel Campbell (18 March)
I think Nyepi should last longer or spread further afield to other places that could do with a day of silence away from the noises of the 21st century that never seem to stop except for during Bali’s day of silence. To welcome you back from this pleasant interlude to daily life, Mrs Sippy have organised an event throughout the day to get you back into the swing of things. Miguel Campbell has been a large part of the house music scene since the early 1990s as both a DJ and then by producing his own music as part of the underground duo HCB. In 2006, Miguel Campbell founded his own label Outcross Records which has become a home for his music. As part of his mission to spread his unique brand of funk around the world, Miguel Campbell will be stationed at Mrs Sippy where you can enjoy the entertainment and Bali’s largest saltwater swimming pool. It is worth booking ahead for a day bed and continue to enjoy a day of leisure with some great sounds.
