The Best Nightlife In Jakarta! Welcome! All of Jakarta's nightlife in one blog!

By The Jakarta Team
People asked us to create an English version of Crazy Night$ In Jakarta, our French blog where we try to uncover some of Jakarta's hidden nightspots. But the truth is we didn't have time to translate all the reviews so we found a compromise by making short ones about 100 bars and clubs in Jakarta (180 now actually but we like the name of the blog): The Jakarta's One Hundred.

There are a lot of places you will have never heard about in this blog, next to more famous ones like Stadium, Blowfish or Red Square. If you have the chance of living in Jakarta, don't hesitate to take some risk and go to some of the lesser known clubs listed here, it's the best way to enjoy the city and we guarantee you a lot of fun.

For vocabulary: We call Techno Kota the head-banging music they play in some of Kota's clubs... sounds like spanish makina (hear an example here and my all-time favourite funky house song here - connoisseurs of Kota nightlife should start crying).

  5. hi - im into latinos - where am i going to meet some in jakarta?

    ReplyDelete
  6. I would say go to Mistere on Tuesday and Thursday night for Salsa. Spanish community is not so big in Jakarta, or they must be hiding somewhere...

    ReplyDelete
  7. Mistere is in Ritz Carlton, mega kunigan.
    u can try Stix (Parklane hotel).
    They have latino's nights too.

  19. many clubs in that area, the two closest are Sun City (in the mall lindeteves, in front of ur hotel)and Club 36 (the bar of the Jayakarta Hotel)...

    U r in the heart of Jakarta's nightlife so lots of girlie bars too, especially in Jl Labu but they really suck and some big discos but not walking distance

  20. im coming to jakarta for a rave event call 'paradeofthelegends' at ancol carnaval beach in august.

    1)is it worth going?
    2)is it safe to take party substances in clubs or events in jakata?
    3)pls list down the safest clubs in jakarta?
    4)where is the best place to pick up cute girls(non prostitute) in jakarta?

    ReplyDelete
  21. 1)is it worth going?
    Just for the event, i would say no. You'll better go to the Junction in Bali from aug 15th to aug 17th.

    2)is it safe to take party substances in clubs or events in jakata?

    It's very easy to find drugs in Stadium. You can go to Monggo Mas also. But if you don't know anybody, there is still the risk of having to deal with the police.

    3)pls list down the safest clubs in jakarta?
    All the clubs in the south... Among them, Blowfish, Dragonfly, X2, Red Square...

    4)where is the best place to pick up cute girls(non prostitute) in jakarta?

    Red Square but not on week ends

    ReplyDelete
  22. hi.

    i really want to go to stadium.is stadium safe from police raids?

    is substances easy to get at x2 or maybe red square or dragonfly?


    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  23. Stadium is not 100% safe... there have been raids, but the police usually warns the manager so the place is empty when the raids happen... you can ask the security guards, they usually know that kind of stuff... there have been some urine testing also, but it's very rare... it happened maybe 2 times in the past 3 years, only during week days, when the place is empty. Never carry drugs outside the club though, because it is very common to get checked by the police on Jalan Hayam Wuruk.

    There is no way you will find drugs in Dragonfly, Red Square or Blowfish...

  38. This site is indeed interesting. I'm so thankful that I come along at this site. I will be visiting Jakarta this coming October and it will be my first time. I don't know what to expect but I hope the moderator can answer my following question.

    1. Where can I find good gaybars where there are handsome guys dancing in their bikinis or thongs or in nude? If there is, is it possible to get their service?

    2. Where can I find a good sauna or spa where the masseurs are goodlooking guys that also offers extra service apart from massage.

    3. Which areas in Jakarta where goodlooking guys hangout (mall, park, etc) where a hook-up is possible?

    4. Is it generally safe in Jakarta? Coz I came from a country where gay community is quite accepted in the society.

    You may send me your answers to my email cutieboy27@gmail.com. Thanks and more power!

  39. What are the typical hotels to stay in Jakarta - budget/holiday/fun.

    And how does one commute in the city - Taxi or train?

    Where can I find a good city tourist map.

    Thx

  40. Answer to Genford Alexis

    Though not gay, I will try to answer:
    1) Gaybars in Jakarta are limited to Heaven club in Darmawangsa Square, to Apollo Bar, and to Centro occasionaly. No nude bars to my knowledge. I think for gay nightlife, Bali is better than Jakarta. You can also try to go to Jalan Jaksa, where a small gay community live, and if you're very very adventurous, go to moonlight club in Kota. In Stadium also there are lots and lots of gays.

    2) I heard of a massage place in plaza semanggi for gays but i cannot confirm the name. You can go to Golden Boutique Hotel otherwise, I know they have male gigolos

    3) Try all the upmarket malls, Plaza Indonesia, Plaza Senayan, Pacific Place, Grand Indonesia... Maybe in Sarinah it could work also...
    90% of hair dresser/stylist in Jakarta are gay...

    4) Officially it is not tolerated to be gay in Indonesia, but I don't think people are intolerant... at least from my point of view...

    Answer to Anonymous:
    For hotel, send us an email to precise what kind you are looking for, the price and the area...

  47. Hi ...im coming to jakarta in december...theres no more stadium now I heard.....so is there any other clubs like stadium now that we can find party substances easily?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yeah stadium is closed and it's legendary Dj known as Dj mumuch has just past away this early november. Things has changes now,but There are still an underground clubs with the 'e inside like Mille's @Lokasari plasa, Crown @glodok plaza,etc But we can't find the same fuckin euphoria/atmosphere that stadium has.If you lookin' for a stadium music genre,it's ex Dj's still spinnin' on iLLigalls club which location near beside stadium building or on Exodus club at kuningan city mall 5th floor,otherwise club like X2,blowfish,etc become a good option if you lookin' for a good taste of edm genre ..btw,this 11&12 december there will be an annual EDM festival called Djakarta Warehouse Project held on JIEXPO, Pekan Raya Jakarta,Kemayoran with awesome line up dj's which is an asia's must see festival.
