If you want to avoid the huge crowds, but still want to head out on the town, head to Seminyak which is a little more laid back than Kuta.

Sip a cocktail on the beach as you watch the sun go down and then listen to some live music on the beach. There are usually fireworks held on Seminyak beach at midnight.
Puputan Badung Square also offers a fun party from the early afternoon late into the evening as there is a carnival and parade held here, followed by fireworks which finish off the night.
Some venues will charge a cover charge (such as the popular Potato Head) which can range from 100,000 to 300,000 IDR, so make sure to check the venue and make a booking if necessary as they will book out.
