This article is an update on all the promotions (Happy Hours, Ladies Nights, All-You-Can-Drink) that the best bars in Jakarta are currently offering. The deals may change over time so I added the Facebook or Instagram of each venue for you to double check.

If you are on a really tight budget, you can get a few bottles delivered at your home too (Read:  How to Buy Alcohol Online in Jakarta ). Here are some of the best happy hours, free flow deals and ladies nights in Jakarta in 2017:

How I Learned to Speak Indonesian in 1 Month

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
I'm not a genius and I'm not particularly gifted for learning languages. Before Indonesia, I lived 2 years in Italy and 2 years in Brazil, and yet I can barely speak any Italian or Portuguese. Indonesian, or Bahasa Indonesia as it is called here, is different. It is by far the easiest language in the world. There are no tenses, no declension, no tones. There is nothing tricky about the spelling, nothing complex about the grammar, and you always pronounce the words the same way. You don't even have regional differences: It is spoken identically in Sumatra, in Papua, in Java or in Bali. I arrived in Jakarta in November 2012. After one week, I had learned enough words to get by in all the most common situations: Greetings, introductions, ordering food, buying groceries, asking for directions, expressing basic feelings, etc. After 1 month, I was able to have a normal conversation with any Indonesians. My new skill has proven extraordinary useful

If you are wondering where you can party in Jakarta, this review will guide you through all the most famous nightlife areas in the city.

The articles I wrote about the sexiest Indonesian models and the hottest Indonesian actresses are among the most popular on Jakarta100bars.com.

20 Sexiest Indonesian Dangdut Singers

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Dangdut music is one of the most interesting aspects of Indonesian pop culture. While I can't say I enjoy it a lot, I've had a lot of fun dancing on it in nightclubs, bars, festivals or events all over Indonesia. It is a music genre with an even broader appeal than Western pop music, especially among working class Indonesians. It is not surprising, for instance, that the most-followed Instagram account in Indonesia is that of Ayu Ting Ting, a dangdut singer. Considering the importance of religion in Indonesia, it may seem paradoxical that the whole nation would love dangdut so much. Dangdut performers are known to wear sexy outfits and the most often, they sing about love, relationship, dating, seduction or sex. Logically, Islamist groups have declared it "haram" (forbidden), but until now they've failed to curb its popularity.

Best VPNs in Indonesia- How to Access Blocked Websites

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
In this review, I will explain to you how to bypass Internet censorship (mostly porn) in Indonesia by using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) service. I will also give you tips on how to watch Hulu and Netflix in Indonesia. Most porn and torrent websites are blocked in Indonesia . This includes all the most famous ones like XVideos, YouPorn, PornHub, XHamster, KickAss Torrents and The Pirate Bay. It is also not possible to visit some forums like Reddit or InternationalSexGuide. Same thing with the dating website Adult Friend Finder . Some regular websites have also been banned like Vimeo. Tumblr was shut down for 24 hours earlier this year as well. Another problem internet users are facing in Indonesia is the 2008 Electronic Information and Transactions Act. This vague set of laws can make you the target of a defamation suit for exposing your views online. You are not allowed, for instance, of suggesting that someone might be corrupt.
