Update May 2014: The Jakarta City Administration has closed down Stadium following the death by overdose of a policeman who partied there.

Best disco in Jakarta for me, Stadium can be extremely crowded on week-ends and for special events. It has four flours, each supposedly with different themes but tribal techno/progressive is dominant. Stadium is big enough to get you lost and so dark you could not recognize your mom if she was dancing 1 meter away from you.

The atmosphere inside the club is unique: A melting-pot of human misery with an underground feel and with drugs and prostitutes easily available (just ask the waiters). You will find all kind of people partying hard in Stadium: taxi drivers, socialites, bosses, students, expatriates, etc...As it is open until very late in the morning (9am during the week, later during the weekend), it is where all the nightlife ends in Jakarta, once all the other bars and clubs have closed. It has the reputation of staying open 60 hours non-stop from Friday to Monday morning, but this is true only for the karaoke.

If you come for the music, you will need to go to the 4th floor, the famous "lantai empat". Most foreigners stay on the left of the podium, near the DJ. Many gays are just below and the rest of the dance floor is mostly packed with young people. On the corners, in the dark, dealers, prostitutes and pimps. Older clients usually go downstair in the karaoke room and take ectasy/shabu-shabu with some girls. The crowd is at best on Sundays afternoon I think, because many youngsters who do not have permission to spend the night out clubbing do it during the day.

Great DJs came here, in particular Ame and Luciano, plus some Ibiza DJ such as DJ Pippy. It is currently hosting more and more international DJs, at least once a month or two.

The owner of Stadium has a few other places, more specifically massage parlours and karaoke, namely MalioboroBeverly Hills and Sumo. It has also shares in the restaurant and club Kampus.

Safety in Stadium:
As with other nightclubs in North Jakarta, most of the clubbers inside Stadium take drugs, in particular ecstasy. Beer is enough for me, but if you decide to take something stronger, you have to know about the potential risks. There are police raids occasionally, but the management of Stadium is usually informed before they occur and they can prevent anybody to deal inside its premises on these days. People can get caught more easily outside the club, and therefore you should be extremely discreet and you should not keep anything on you when you leave the building. The worst thing that could happen to you is having your urine tested, and it happened (see this news article to know more about drugs in Indonesia). If you don't take drugs, you can ask for a drink called Barracuda (Rp200k), which is known to be quite strong. The Cendana cocktail is popular as well.

4000 or 5000 people can fit in the whole club, but there is only 1 fire exit, so pray hard and nothing will happen. Pickpockets are another safety issue, with the primary target being cell-phones left in the rear pocket of your pants... you may be high, but others aren't and they are much aware that you are an easy prey..

At last, the taxis located just outside of the club should be avoided at any cost. Walk along Hayam Wuruk for at least 200 meters, then catch a Blue Bird or an Express.

Update July 2009: There were a few people injured and one dead in a fight that took place in Stadium. Apparently, the attack was led by a group of young people in white shirts who wanted to close down the place. In spite of that, I don't think it's unsafe to go there by yourself, the biggest danger you might encounter is being ripped off by a taxi driver.

Update March 2011:
As some readers commented, there are indeed some nude dancers in Stadium now.. I took a photo that I voluntarily censored:

I also have a good video, even though the place was not too full:

Some famous Stadium songs (from 2004-2008):
For the music, Stadium is setting the tone for most of the other discos in Jakarta. Some tracks are so easily identifiable that when they are played in other places, you'll see people go "Stadium song!". Here are some sample:
Runaway - Iio - played live in Stadium by DJ Mumuch
Till There was you - Rachel Starr - Gabriel and Dresden
Storm is Rising - John Creamer & Stephane K feat Susana
Habibi - DJ Mumuch
At The End - Iio (Couldn't find the Stadium remix though)
Stadium song unknown title A great one but can't find the name (or maybe Commisar Pro?)
Ecstasy - Stadium Jakarta remix
Desert Rose by Sting, Stadium remix Another "Ecstasy" song.
House of Voodoo - Shadows This one may not have started in Stadium, it's a bit more housy, but you hear it everywhere (the remix is not the original one but it's the best I could find).

  1. is "the crossroads band" still performing on friday night at 3rd floor stage?

  2. Awesome review thanks!! I just love Stadium so much!!

    ReplyDelete
  3. The stadium is now just a (very) fond memory. Those georgeous angels from Bandung in the back I will never forget. Being in the vip room with 2 of them when the E kicked in and the confused look in their eyes when I told them to stop polishing the knob and massage my scalp and hands (the whole body becomes and erogenous zone w/the real E) while the DJ pumped in a magic trancy tune over those big speakers like I was in heaven.....mmmmmmmm! It made Woodstock seem like a methodist sunday school!! Unlike all the nice clubs in Bangkok that the pee testing gestapo closed down the Stadium is still there to tempt you into a very costly encounter. The E was something else the last few times I was there (PMA?). They can get you at a random pee testing station while driving to Bogor the next day where you might come up dirty for a doobie you had back in LA. I had too many close calls and too many of the fine folks I partied with there are in jail for a very long time. I am scared to even stay in Glodok again because the sirens of the Stadium will call me and the next time I will be one of the unfortunate ones!

  4. Is there any thing about do and dont for New bie in Jakarta, I been to Ibiza and FMP in Thai, they are all fine, but never being to Jakarta, can anyone help, any range to pay these girls, any good RAVE party speed? Liquid E?

    TQ

    ReplyDelete
  5. To get good E u need to ask the security guards for imports... they also have something very strong they sell in nearby club Monggo Mas, but im not sure what is it. Find a girl in stadium and let her deal with that, it's the best way... the rich one will actually buy ectasy for u

    ReplyDelete
  6. TQ for the advice, but still lack of something, howabout the fee I am going to pay the companion? and is there any hotel near these joint? can anyine share?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Bobbyshooter, i went to stadium a couple time and clearly you dont need to pay if you want a companion, and if you do want to pay, i think it's somewhere around 30 dollars, but that ain't much fun no? Lots of hotels in the area, most of the clubs are hotels as well actually to avoid strict ramadan rules.. prices for a room is around 20$ for something ok but i don't know the area enough to recommand you an adress

    ReplyDelete
  8. Emerald hotel is only a few meters away from stadium

    ReplyDelete
  9. I passed by Hayam Wuruk on the night of the incident at Stadium. A few police trucks and lots of armed security personnel.
    I dropped in at the place a week later and things were back to normal. The friend I introduced the Stadium to was so impressed by the place. Yes, I rate this place very high.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Nightlife in Kemang is not that great...

    For cheap hotels, you better go to Jalan Jaksa and the nearby streets, you will find with a small areas hotels in a central locations ranging from 5 dollars a night to 30$

  12. I was very lucky to Dj in the Stadium back in 2001 , Saturday morning at 6am - 8am .one of the best sets i ever played ...I too spent many days and nights dancing and getting wasted in this crazy place..., the fact it is open from thursday night until tuesday morning means you can go missing for days in there..no place like it on earth and i have played and travelled to every continent...
    Just flick a lighter in the air and waiter come with extc and girls if you want it.

    I am shocked to hear that there is just 1 fire exit. Crazy but i guess thats indonesia !!

    i think everyone shouldd go there once !!

  13. Didn't know nightlife of Jakarta was this great, it being a Muslim country and all. Definitely have to visit the place soon.

  14. Is it safe to take and consume e and other stuff in Jakarta night club esp there at stadium ? i have no trouble getting them and taking it in Melbourne or Sydney clubs :P so am worried am here back to indo for few months holidays.... and desperately need places to go out to

    ReplyDelete
  15. It's not dangerous if you don't get caught! I think there is a very little risk to get caught, but if you do get caught, you will be in huge trouble compared to what would happen in Australia... The best thing you can do is to go there with people who already know the place. Stadium management knows when there are police raids and they make the place clean before that so people know which days are not good.

    ReplyDelete
  16. does anyone know the best area to stay near the nightlife...im a single male,21 and irish so im party mad and il be alone..thanks

    ReplyDelete
  17. If you are 21, you should be on a tight budget so the best place to go to is Jalan Jaksa, where you will also find some lively bars.. The hotels there are a bit run down but they are quite cheap.. Many foreigners too over there

    ReplyDelete
  18. no im not on a tight budget..i have a very good job probably spend 60-80 euro a night drinking and that..thanks anyway

    ReplyDelete
  19. A great spot.
    I've spend one night in Jakarta last week and I've changed my plan for my holidays next month : 10 days to enjoy jakarta nightlife.
    Thank you guys for your blog!

  20. There are two categories of People : the ones who got there. The ones who never did.
    Second type cannot call themselves "clubbers".
    First know what "Hell" and "Paradise" mean.

  23. I'm staying in a budget hotel near stadium. Just found out where the club is. It's in a small road which is quite hidden and the whole roadside looks so dodgy. It looks like the kind of places people get stabbed everynight. Is it still safe to go there? Because the previous posts are quite old. Anybody went there recently?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hi Brian, there has been some fights in Stadium a few months ago, but it is not common at all and I don't think the place is unsafe. The dangerous thing is if you take drugs in Stadium and get caught by the police.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks for the reply. But don't think they'll re-open before my time over here is up . (another 3 nights to go). Anyway, what do i say to the taxi drivers if i want to go to the pubs in Kota?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Is Stadium closed? It's open everyday usually...

    If you party in Kota, you have to take a blue bird or express taxi, the other ones are crooks... You can order them from your hotel or wait for one to pass by in the street it won't be too long. The most famous places will be known by the taxis, in particular Stadium, Club 36, Alexis, Malioboro, Millenium, Mille's, Crown, Sun City... Just say the name of the place and he will take you there.. The "kota" area (i.e. North Jakarta) is very large so you have to choose first the place you want to go to. To make sure, just get this address first and write it down so you can show him where you want to go.. If you don't feel comfortable in Kota, many clubs in the South only 20 minutes ride with a taxi...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks for the advice. Don't think stadium is closed down permanently. The locals are saying the clubs' sound system blew up last monday morning. It's been closed since then till tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Made it to Stadium on the 29th Apr. Went there again the next day. One advise to anyone looking for working girls over there (the short time ones, take them at the lounge). The girls at the lounge look better. Don't know the price range though. And there are exotic dancers in both the lounge(live music) and the disco. And i was surprised that the inside was nothing like i imagined by looking at the road it's situated.

  29. is it just e?
    what about coke..

  30. It"s mostly e and crystal meth, coke is harder to find and expensive

    The big club on 4th floor is great. Super music. The bar with life band is just ok. The karaoke is far away from Alexis as the girls are boring and not that pretty. The hotel rooms are ok but small.
    If you have not been to Stadium then you have not been clubbing! Must see and must party place!!!

  32. I went there once with my firend, i kinda like the place but my firend she didn't the minute we enter she grabed my arm were checking place it's ok and went up and we sated there for abit...so i'm saying maybe it is not very good club to brining your lady firend here, they will get scare from the place

    went to Stadium for the first time at the weekend - great place, but had 3 pills none of which did much for me, except the last one which just made me feel heavily stoned. i was disappointed - i came to asia partly to escape europe's ecstasy drought! i'm hoping i was just unlucky this time, but what have other people's recent experiences been like?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yeah,I experienced the same one week ago(18.11.2010).
    We went there with locals I gave him 300 rupiahs to get a good e,it was ok,but way to expensive,then I bought two more from the waiters for 200,and I felt something,but it wasn`t as good as the first one .
    But the music was great(also in the second floor ),and today I`m gonna go there one more time `caus I`m gonna leave soon .
    I hope I will be luckier to get some good e,but I`m not counting on it,it`s just like everywhere in Indonesia:corruption in the name of Allah...

  37. My stadium experience on a monday night (22/11/2010): I was surprised to see the 4th floor was almost full, with great music and many people dancing like crazy (most had taken ecstasy I guess).. Compared to my previous time in Stadium, a few years ago, there were a lot of foreigners, bule and arabs, and even some foreign girls.. I think it is more common for expats to come here now.. Among the girls, lots of beautiful ones, but I think almost all of them were hookers and prostitutes.. At 3am approximately, the security emptied the podium and some sexy dancers appeared.. they stayed on the stage for 30 minutes, and put the fire to the place, especially after they took their clothes off and started dancing almost naked (topless striptease + g string).. Recommended for a monday night.. Golden crown is good also on mondays!

  48. I went to Stadium last night at 3.00am and stayed for about two hours. What a disaster! Almost all the punters are young local males. I saw only one expat in the crowd. Barely any females at all, and just a handful of not so pretty hookers. Don't believe the hype.

  57. @ anonymous: You have the Mercure Hotel, a five star, only 5 minutes walk from Stadium.. also nearby is Jayakarta Hotel (4 stars) and Triniti, just in front... Triniti doesn't have stars but it is a top recommendation if you want to party in kota... the room are excellent value at about 50 dollars and they are much better than in Mercure or Jayakarta.. check http://www.trinitihotel-jakartapusat.com/

No one as crazy as this place especially if you blend in w/ some high quality E! Last time I was there was 10Y ago... didn't have the chance to come back to jakarta.. Will be there soon and will try it all again for the whole week-end non stop !

  61. As I consider myself a world-citizen and a party captain with a Dutch background, I've seen alot....but nothing like Stadium. If you would ask me for the best club in the world then Stadium is my number one, period....have never seen a place like this in Amsterdam or any other European city as well in no major US city or central South American city....Even Colombia was by far not able to level with this crazy place...best club in the world, no doubts!

  63. Anybody know if it's open now during Ramadan?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Stadium is open during ramadhan except on the first two days, the 17th day and the last two days of Ramadhan.. It closes at 5am and on weekend it is still quite crowded..

    ReplyDelete
  65. Striptease is mentioned above, is it full nude, what a level and what time does it happen???? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  66. It's not completely nude, there are three or four girls and they just take they top off.. it only happens around around 1 or 2am on weekdays (when ramadhan will be over) but not during the weekend.. on the fourth floor

    ReplyDelete
  67. Third floor lounge has topless dancing on the weekends, around 2 or 3 am. After dance is done girls go around and you can buy shots for them (and feel them up a bit) for Rp 50k. Not sure if it goes on during Ramadan, I'm guessing not.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I have some tips that may be useful to those who may want to try ecstasy there.

    -Always buy the ecstasy at Stadium! Even though it has gotten really expnsive, it is much safer and convenient to buy it there than to bring it from somewhere else. That way you dont have to worry about being caught in a random razia on the road on the way there.

    -I usually buy the pills on the 2nd floor by the hallway where all the karaoke rooms start. All you need to do is ask anyone working in that area and they will hook you up. Since it is away from the crowds up on the 4th floor i usually feel safer fumbling around with my money trying to pay for the drugs. Also they usually have more of an asortment, offering 2 or 3 different kinds. They will usually be helpful and tell you which one is better aswell if you ask.
    However, it is very easy to buy it on the 4th floor aswell, just ask any waitor and they will help you out.

    -Although many people in stadium are friendly and will share water, be careful when drinking from other peoples bottles as its easy to share germs and get sick from it. Remember that alot of ppl there have been partying for a long duration and probably dont have the best imune system at the time, and if you are at stadium for a big night, you probably wont either,

    -Its always risky to be carrying around a large amount of pills on you, so its best to take what you buy right away, and then buy some more later if you need to. I have been in a few razias there where they just search through you pockets, and if they cant find anything, then it ok.

    -Remember that the drug dealing is part of their business, so i cant imagine that they would sell you dangerous quality pills, becuase they have a reputation to keep. Almost all the people you can buy from there will be working for Stadium and selling their pills. (i hear that if other drugs dealers try to sell there who are not associated with stadium or do not have their permission, then they will be severly punished).

    -The quality of the pills tends to fluctuate though, and sometimes you will get amazing ones, and sometimes you will get less good ones.

    -If it is closing time and you still feel like partying, the best place to go is to Millies which is close by and is usually open until around noon.

    In my opinion, if you want to try ecstasy while your in indonesia, you should try it there! it is by far the safest option as you can buy it from anyone inside there saftley without having to worry about police or anything. The pills will also be of a safe quality. Further they play the amazing music and a great atmopshere perfect for a drug adventure.

    The only real concern is if there is a razia. From my experience, they usually turn on the lights in the club a few minutes before the police arrive, so in that time you can get rid of any illegal matterials you have on you.

  69. Was in stadium this past weekend ( sat night 15/10 ), first time in a longtime. Seems to have changed a bit could have just been that one night. But was full of Indonesian males, not many girls and the ones that were there were of the ayam type. In the past it has been possible to meet girls in there who are not on the game and happy to hang out for the night. Seems to be one of those places to take a girl to, not to meet there.

    Have had many great nights there in the past so not writing it off yet !

    ReplyDelete
  70. Was there last night, agree with some of the other posters here that the crowd seems to have changed and when I was there it was overwhelmingly young males. One of the best things about Stadium used to be that you could meet unattached single non working girls there. Still possible I think but a lot harder. Still an experience however. Not many bule there either I was there between 2.30 and 4.30am so maybe missed the bule influx when other clubs close.

  71. Stadium is THE club!! I have been to many dance clubs but none of them compare to stadium!! it has everything! women...the best music...and we all know what else ;) you might pay 300,000 rupiah for an e but damn was they worth every penny!! i got mine from security on the 4th floor, little yellow ones :) one thing i will say is just becareful when you leave the club if you have taken drugs...we left at about 6.00am one time, jumped in a taxi and there was this indo guy talking to the taxi driver in indonesian and pointing at us!! we thought he was gonna drop us at the nearest police station so take some sunglasses with you ha ha. keep a good eye out for pick pockets, i had been in indonesia for 3 days and went to stadium and either lost my phone or had it pickpocketed! still didnt ruin my night though :) the music is just amazing, i listen to it now im home and it just takes me straight back to the dancefloor and sends shivers down my spine!! there is something for everyone there, even your grandma if she likes a go on the kareoke! stadium is just one place you have to experience before you die thats for sure....just be careful kids ;)

  75. I think it's a lil' bit unsafe for some women without any male friend to go to stadium. Coz' so many people will taking benefit from you once you'll get tipsy and stoned.
    I suggest you to bring some of your male friends just to take care of you guys or you could just be friend with some local people or the securities in there.

  76. Just partied 3 days straight in stadium, every night till close and sunday till 13.00 and took 9pills. It took me 3 days to recover. Too many guys indeed, definately not the place to pick up woman. For picking up go to red square, dragonfly. For dancing stadium. I cannot state enough how great the sound system is. I have been clubbing over 15 years in over 30 countries and never encountered the sounds of stadium. 3 levels of speakers gives it a 3 dimensional idea and the high tweets who go round and round, make you go spin. DJ bobby, you are the best!

  78. Took the gamble to hit up stadium last saturday night and god fucking damn it was worth it. There were a lot of girls there, which i wasn't expecting... I only went with the intention of hearing some good music, but oh my god the music is so good.... you will wish you could live there. Danced my ass off for a good 12 hrs and hooked up with 3 fine ass ladies... knowing a little bit of bahasa will really help your cause but god damn this place is popping on saturday night/sunday morning - afternoon... Bring your sunglasses some medicine and just get lost for a day :). Stay safe

  79. Does anyone know how much it costs to get into the 4th Floor of Stadium on a 'normal night'? Im travelling with 4 party girls from Melbourne and want to know if this is the best club to dance at all night...?

  80. to Anonymous above
    I don't know what your definition of a "normal night" is but on saturday night it is 80IDR to enter (about 10USD). from Monday-Friday I can imagine it would be a little cheaper.I know for a fact on Monday-Thursday it closes at 4 a.m. because I got there at 2a.m. and there was no charge because the club was closing in 2 hrs. Fridays-Sundays it does not close. Hope this helps :)

  84. The Media here shows a lot of heat after the accident "http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2012/01/27/blood-tests-confirm-ecstasy-use.html"

    Anyone knows if Stadium is good to go this weekend?

    ReplyDelete
  85. I was wondering what things were like at Stadium too. My guess is that they won't be selling any E for a while, but things will probably cool off in a few weeks. Too bad, I really wanted to go this weekend but I think its too risky. If anybody is brave enough to go, please report!

  89. Hi all, I went to Stadium after the accident happened and it was quite empty, with nobody selling ectasy as openly as before... I only stayed 30 minutes but I will not go back for a while as I am a bit afraid of razzia led by the police.. Hopefully after the Governor elections things will go back to normal..

  90. Hi :) I'll be in Jakarta in june, I was planning to go to Stadium just because I've heard so much about it. Just wanted to ask, what are the chances of getting your drink spiked there? I've read about a few people that it happened to.. ? I'm from the UK but I'll be going with a few friends from Jakarta, so I should be safe right?

    ReplyDelete
  91. just an update :)

    - i went to stadium several days after the accident, just got drunk before in Dragon fly, and sure i need to continue my nite to this-best-heaven ever :) because dragonfly closes at 4am. In stadium, i asked the seller of the E called "BD" (Bandar)and he said that this would close at 6am.. wtf! i cancelled my plan to consume E :)

    - a week later (5feb), i went to stadium with my friend where he had already his own E (pink pill)and i never consume this type of pill. i had asked the security before that this would close at 6am.. thought its enough coz i entered at 12pm.. Ant this pink pill made me feel like a snake or butterfly or what that fuck type or dance ! LOL .. then at 3pm the aircont seemed like off and thought that this E effect had drop.. i needed to buy a new one from the usual seller there.. i asked the waiter n guess what, he said there's no seller today.. wtf .. and THE MOST FUCK THING IS IT CLOSED AT 4AM .. WTF it's satnite ! they said it woud be continue at 12 AM .. n damn i should walk out with a fuck condition of length n eyes !

    better for u to go at Sunday 12am till nite...
    it would be safer i think.. n u need to ask the security before, that is there any E seller or not..
    until the condition be good as before..

    btw,
    i'm Indra, local !

    Enjoy jakarta!

    regards ! :-)

  92. Guys beware of e these days i was there and its very risky now agter accident ya i was at stadium a i was there few days back its now not safe to consume e any more. The waiters if you ask says no. There are girls inside not working for stadium want to to buy e for you and them after while they say razia outside. You get panic and they say they get you out descrete and pull your money frim your vallet a new type of scam going on now.

    This is a new scam from experienced prostitutes this has happened for 2 of my friends. When they here razia is out after consume in the present situation they go black and try all there vallet to get out but actually no razia just a trick

    Guys its not like this. In jakarta if you posses e then thats a problem razia will not take you for testing if u have alteady consumed e. if they do so half a million jakartians may be tested every day positive for e. its impossible and too costly

    The best option to party with e these days is go to exotic disco a little bit trashy. But e is just 200 ask waiter a get a working girl to buy for u. Let her put the e on your mouth dont take to your hand.
    Immediately get back to stadium just 600 mtra to there
    Make sure do not take taxis outside walk opposite and and wait for blue bird or express

    Settle your self at stadium. Never buy e for yourself at any wahere now cid is informed as customers and waiting at clubs after you give money they provide u to your hand and inpossesion in between consumption you have chances being caught
    Best way buy a girl 200 - 300 get her buy and get her to pass with her mouth or hand gulp then n there

    The best is to avoid for some time and settle for spirits

    Also never have sec with exotic girls pretty unsafe they are open without gloves and e addicted ones prefer unsafe sex. Some may be good

  93. I was there last night, a Thursday, arrived about 4 am, was pretty busy, E was easy to buy from the waiter, the atmosphere was not as amazing as it usually is but it was still pretty good and I'll be back Saturday nite ! That fucking sound system is just so bloody good !

    ReplyDelete
  94. Was there last night and today Sunday till this afternoon. Can confirm everything is back to normal now. No closing restrictions. Dealers are at there usual spot to the right as you walk into the club. Pills were high quality "Chanel" print. Place was absolutely packed at 8am on both main floor and balcony but could have been because top UK trance DJ Gareth Emery was playing next door at Illegals and a lot of the crowd migrated across to Stadium afterwards. All good another great night out at Asia's best underground club.

  96. All, I'm going to Jakarta next week and planning on going to Stadium. I'm an expad and I'm going alone which I really don't want to do. Anybody knows where I can pick up a female companion to go with (I don't want to pick up a gril from Stadium)? Thanks...

  97. Hit Top Gun at Blok M to get your girl, pound down some beers then take a taxi to Stadium. Same rules apply at Blok M, walk down the street to the main road to get a Bluebird/Express/Putra taxi otherwise the Taxi Mafia will soak you.

  101. hi im from s'pore.stadium is amazing.truly magical place.its like another planet.people of different races,nationality,culture,sexes,colour,young and old,you name it.we are all united in stadium regardless of what.why?thanks to the greatest substance in the world,the XTC.its my fourth time in stadium.been there last year december 2011,twice and recently last week,twice.

    i can only say so much but all you need is to experience it yourself.it changes the way i look at things,i appreciate people more,i appreciate music more.yes,it has got this dodgy,gansterish vibe in the club but once you pop,the rest is history.its an amazing club to go.i've officially stopped clubbing in my country.when i want to party,ill fly all the way to jakarta for stadium.I LOVE STD!

    the best club hands down in south east asia!and if you think XTC is dangerous,please take a look at ecstasy rising in youtube,there are 5 parts.and you will know the truth.stick to recreational drugs if you want.please avoid hard narcotics such as ice,heroin,coke.its a good thing that stadium does this,for the benefit of their own govt,the people,for treatment...

    there are usually police around the clubs,but i reckoned that they're only there for fights,gangsterism and such.the club pays the govt bodies to stay away from raids.the police knows that stadium is full of xtc consumers so please,dont worry.its pretty safe ;)

    ReplyDelete
  104. anonymous from Singapore excellently describes what Stadium is. I am local, a regular visitor of STD for the last one year. I notice there are more and more foreigners coming recently, which is good!!

    For any newly-aspirant visitors, I list some basic info about the place:

    1. The music is mostly progressive house and trance. To get a feeling of what u will encounter there, listen to the following links:
    http://soundcloud.com/djbobby_s/14th-stadium-anniversary-mixed
    http://soundcloud.com/djbobby_s/sound-of-stadium

    2. Once you enter the hall on the 4th floor, u will see some working girls and madams. Just ignore them and go straight to the dance floor. If u want to pick up working girls, do it elsewhere, this is not the place, really.

    3. If you want to take some pills, go straight to the RIGHT side after you walk in to the 4th floor. The dealers are there, sitting in the dark corner NEAR THE STAIRS to the 5th floor. U dont have to ask the waiters (which will cost u some tips), the dealers are selling it openly. Pay NO more than 300k rupiah/pill. Ask your local friends which brand that is good at the moment (it varies from time to time).

    4. Actually, u have to buy pill. U will not get full sensation and atmosphere if you're not taking it. It might not be of the best quality in the world, but the average is good. Don't worry too much about the compounds, I've never seen anyone had trouble with it. Just leave everything behind and fly high....

    5. Bring sunglasses

    6. you are free to wander around the dance floor, rolling to the stage, or just sit nicely in front of the bar or on the right/left wing of the dance floor. This is the place for u who want to dance high all nite long.

    7. If you want to stay all nite long, u can book sofa in the fifth floor. Very cozy, with clear view to the fully-packed dance floor below. At least u dont have to struggle to find some seats. It only cost u 500k (minimum order) and u can get free pass for two persons (makes it very economical). The sofa can fit for 6-7 persons. But u cannot book it by phone, someone has to come in person and pay in advance.

    8. The place is VERY safe. No one bothers to mind anyone else's business. So don't worry too much. But for the first-timer, it is recommended to bring a friend or two.

    9. No strict dress code. No shorts and sandals, off course, but u can be as casual as u want to be.

    10. The toilets are always messy and dirty, particularly on Sunday morning (remember this is an underground club, not a luxurious club in south jakarta). Bring ur own tissue otherwise u will have to pay some tips to the waiters inside (2k will do).

    11. There is a smaller and more relaxing lounge in the second floor. Good if u want to take a break.

    12. On weekend, it is not open 24 hours from friday till sunday, actually. The 4th floor will close on Saturday at 11am, open again at 9pm. If u still on high, u can go to the 2nd floor and book a "karaoke" room there, which open 24 hours. There's sofa and toilet inside, and u can continue partying, but more private (they provide excellent sound system and recorded music inside).

    13. Police raids are VERY uncommon in Stadium! this is the safest place in Jakarta to take pills!!!! Just remember NOT to bring the pills OUTSIDE stadium. Take it inside, and u are 99.9999 percent SAFE!!!

    13. Have fun and get lost!!

    cheers,
    D

  105. Jakarta makes some great posts above, but be aware there are pickpockets and really shady people hard at work in Stadium. They will go after what is in your pockets, people will spike your drink to get your phone, and if you are bule you will be a target- especially if alone and especially if a little too high. Stadium is a pretty hardcore club with pretty hardcore drugs for pretty hardcore people. If you cannot handle that it is not the place for you. Have fun and stay safe.

  108. Went on 26/5/12 and came out the other day at 12!! Hell of a place!! The best clubbing experience ever!! E costed me 300K IR. I had made friends with a guy who later I came to know was a dealer himself. On the first pill he asked for half of it!! I thought its good atleast my thing won't be spiked! And right I was I got the kick of my life!! Took another one from him an hour later!! Scince he was the dealer he made me friends with quite a few girls (pros actually) but really cute and danced along whole night!! One hell of Night!! Will go again next week!!

  112. I went there last night (wednesday night) and the place was packed with lots of beautiful girls (i think about 30% were hookers) and of course lots of young local guys also. There were i think not more than 7 to 10 bule in total and all of them were surrounded (i am not kidding or exaggerating) by girls, so they all had a wonderfull night. Around 4 am just one hour before i was going home i met a French guy who had just arrived, and he took me as his wingman round the place. In no time the French guy had a gorgeous chick (no hooker)clinging onto him not wanting to let go of him and he was also not planning to get rid of her. So just 10 minutes after the French guy arrived he already left again with a cutie. I think this happened with most bule guys this night, that is probably also why there were never more than 10 at one time because there were lots leaving constantly.


    As usual i could not get a girl so around 5 am i left home

  115. Many girls in Stadium ask for X and they got it they do a dissapearing act or they do a runner, happened to me 4 times. I am not giving them anything anymore apart from Aqua. If you re not Brad Pitt or can't dance really well be carefull, they might tire of you after they got what they want and look for s more fresh or handsome prospect

  122. Stadium is closing early (by their standards) at around 5-6 am on the weekends. It happened to me twice in the last two weeks, I asked a waitress and she said it had something to do with the government. Just a tip in case you decide to rock up there when then sun's getting ready to make an appearance...

    ReplyDelete
  123. Six of us went to stadium on the 30th of June as soon as we entered 2 of my friends decided to go back they were not ok cos they felt not safe, The remaining 4 of us popped up ½ tablet each and it took us to a another level and we left the place in the wee hours of the morning.
    We thought that we were given Ecstasy but it was not so cos all of us had tremendous side effect, fatigue, lack of attention, sleepless, Increase in Heart Rate and much more. I looked at the drug and did some findings and I got to know that we have taken Methamphetamine

    Methamphetamine Changes the Brain
    Usually neurons recycle dopamine. But Methamphetamine is able to fool neurons into taking it up just like they would dopamine. Once inside a neuron, Methamphetamine causes that neuron to release lots of dopamine. All this dopamine causes the person to feel an extra sense of pleasure that can last all day. But eventually these pleasurable effects stop. They are followed by unpleasant feelings called a "crash" that often lead a person to use more of the drug. If a person continues to use Methamphetamine, they will have a difficult time feeling pleasure from anything. Imagine no longer enjoying your favourite food or an afternoon with your friends.
    Because it is similar to dopamine, Methamphetamine can change the function of any neuron that contains dopamine. And if this weren't enough, Methamphetamine can also affect neurons that contain two other neurotransmitters called serotonin and norepinephrine. All of this means that Methamphetamine can change how lots of things in the brain and the body work. Even small amounts of Methamphetamine can cause a person to be more awake and active, lose their appetite, and become irritable and aggressive. Methamphetamine also causes a person's blood pressure to increase and their heart to beat faster.

    I have no Issues in taking any form of drug but this can lead to detrimental side effects and brain damage in later life
    It’s up to you to lose your Neurons or preserve them

  125. for now, xtc in stadium is always Pink Love , Elang (eagle) , Wallet ... My friend who is a medical college student say that pink love is one of the best that trully contain more MDMA while others is more like meth, or maybe coke or another dangerous drugs ...

    pink love is good for me.. but i do hate the hallucination effect of it.. it changes all ur view, all the people arround u looks like alien LOL

    ReplyDelete
  126. The real Ecstasy takes you to a positive mode and does not leave any side effects and this good feeling lasts for max 6 hours and tails off, If you are hallucinating with some pill this has to be some form of DRUG not ECSTACY
    , In Europe and in many part of the world this is a normal practice but I have never experienced such after effects taking an unknown pill in the Stadium

    note : in this club, you must consume pills to feel happy, do not enter if you just drink alcohol

    ReplyDelete
  133. I love checking the comments on this blog as they provide a good mixture of useful, informed opinion, paranoid scaremongering and love letters to a truly special place.

    To anyone reading this who hasn't been to Stadium, all I can say is... go!

    This is the best nightclub in the world. Unparalled.

    The sound system, the progressive tribal music (unlike anything on the planet), the apocalyptic, almost religious vibe, the darkness, the danger, the seediness,the lawlessness, the djs who, unlike their western counterparts aren't bothered about being celebrities (hello tiesto) despite their skills, the people, wonderful, welcoming, warm indonesian people... every walk of life from pickpockets to trannies to 15-year-old kids to gangsters to millionaires, the zombie nation... oh and did I mention the music? It will pulse through your body and make your senses tingle whenever you hear it (or is that the chemical aids?) again. It's unreal.

    This is a place where anything can happen. It's magical. Stand under the dragon and you'll feel it. It's alive. Get a taste of sweet madness.

    Some people say you need to take ecstacy to truly appreciate Stadium. I'd agree. However, if you're not into that and come with an open mind you may also find something or someone unforgettable. It's that kind of place.

    Stadium is the antithesis of Ibiza or London or New York or Singapore clubbing. There's no room for pretentious wankers here. You come to Stadium to dance, get high, get laid, to feel alive. Stadium heightenz and sharpens the senses. It exudes an electrical current that taps into something deep-rooted in the human psyche... wanting, needing to belong to the tribe.

    Go there, before it gets shut down as globalistaion and political correctness take their toll.
    ---

    Don't try to stop me, you ain't gonna change my mind...

    I'm going out I don't care I'm leaving everything behind...

    Nothing's gonna hold me, this music's taken over, it controls me...

    I'm breaking all the rules and letting go...

  135. Stadium. God, heaven on earth in a literal meaning. And yes, to enjoy the atmosphere in there its unlikely to not taking the E. Well, worth every penny redeemed with extraordinary feelings. Its happiness that you can buy. Its fake one, but who cares? Thats the only reason to go there, to create the superb fake happiness. But then again, the memory when you leave this place is eternal. You still can feel the warmth and sensation as you move your body, scream and jolt your hand your fingers, the hysteria, and mostly the feeling when you hug someone while you're hammered. But too bad its really difficult to find someone eligible in there. Im gay, and gay in there mostly overly sissy and cheapy. Not being stereotypical but that's what I see according to my experience being in that place

    ReplyDelete
  142. Hi there, I'm from Singapore and visited Jakarta 2 weeks ago (will be heading there again this saturday for holiday and work). I went to many places like X2, RedSquare, Fables, Equinox before ending my night at Stadium. And boy, Stadium was only the beginning of my awesome night.

    Standard thing to do when you head to Stadium, get a pill, let it chill and fly. Release yourself from all the stress from the worldly things, be who you want to be and enjoy this religion of music where everyone from all walks of life come together as one tribe, one soul to be free.

    Indonesian people are very friendly and accommodative, even my clients in Jakarta gave me a Javanese name because they want me to be part of their culture and language. It'll be a bonus if you pick up basic bahasa so that communication wouldnt be such a pain.

    In Stadium, you do not experience things you will in other clubs. That is awkwardness, status observance or people just looking at you to see and judge you on how rich/poor you are (the way you dress and the watch you wear etc etc.) In Stadium, everyone is as beautiful as one another, everyone is One.

    So if you ever go there, enjoy yourself. Let it all out, because at the end of the effects, you'll be back on earth. This is happiness that you can buy :)

  144. I usually tend to go to higher class clubs where you have to dress to impress. I'm thinking about checking stadium out but was just thinking about what to wear there. Do any of you know what the dress code is for a single woman in her early 20s is? Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Wear whatever you like.. just as long you don't roll in naked no one is going to be checking to see if you are to the "9s" to get into Stadium ;) My only recommendation would be wear something you can dance in for a few hours (if you're into that). You wont find the standing around inspecting each others "get up" like you find in some of the more posh clubs in Jakarta. Its Stadium we go there to not concern ourselves with "codes." Well to a point ;)

  147. Ok, reading about Stadium, I have to check it out. Will go tomorrow night (Sunday, Dec 16, 2012) I have partied across countries for 7 years but Stadium sounds quite fun. I aint into prostitutes or drugs, I just like to drink and dance. Male of 32 years. Any advise for me? Any one wants to join up since I am kinda hesitant to go along though.

    ReplyDelete
  148. The best club on earth. I have been there before twice this year and heading tonight again N I can't wait to hit the place.
    If you haven't been to stadium you haven't clubbed yet. N no I am not exaggerating at all. I am from India working in Singapore and have visited a couple of other countries and have tried all kinds of drugs but never felt any thing like this.
    Like people here have said no feeling of racism, no feeling of alone, no status symbol.... Everyone is ONE. EVERYONE IS FREE.
    I LOVE STADIUM. I can wear a t-shirt seriously.
    And BTW if anyone is going to stadium any weekend in January please let me know. I would love to join you guys.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Guys I am the Same Indian Guy from SIngapore!! And guess what I got caught by the police cause the driver ran into the police somewhere like a 1 KM away from Stadium in a road block and they just asked me are you drunk n I said yes I was and they straight away asked for a pee check. I had a flight an hour later so I started grumbling that please let me go cause I knew I would have tested positive for E in my pee.
    The guy said we know you have taken E so if you wanna go give us money!! I asked how much they said 5 million!!! I bargained and got through the whole deal with 3 million. SO guys if you are caught its not the end of your life!! Just have some extra money with you just in case!!

  155. I'm going to Jakarta for the first time at the end of Feb for a few days. I would like a bit of advice....

    first, I would like some crystal meth. Has anyone on here taken it there before? What is a fair price to pay, and can you trust someone to buy it for you? Is it best to ask the security, and is there a risk that they'll just take your money and disappear? Also, are the penalties as harsh for meth as they are for E if you get caught? And do the police pee test for it? How much does it cost for a girl and a private room per hour? Will they come back to your hotel? How much does it cost for entrance to stadium, and does that cover all floors? How much are drinks? Sorry for the endless list of questions, just trying to budget. Am particularly interested about the crystal meth, or shabu shabu as I think it is known. Are the hotels in the area girl friendly? Cheers

  159. I wasted a great 5-6 years from 2004 - 2009/2010 and dobble my collage time from 4 years to 8 years because i'm busy partying at stadium almost every night.. And busy sleaping the next day, get up, call my friends and we go to stadium again! On wednesday night, friday night, saturday night, sometime sunday morning (they call it pmp or pasukan minggu pagi,hehe) but sometimes if me and my friends go crazy we go all the way from friday night to sunday (they open friday night and close monday morning in those times) hahahaha!! Damn, i miss this place.. But maybe i wont come back, all of my friends are "retired" let the new ones enjoyed the crazynes of stadium! The best club ever!! From -grandson of eyang dragon- b2k

  160. They are now closing at 4am.... What a buz kill...

    ReplyDelete
  161. All Jakarta traditional open always bars (Stadium, Milles, etc) are now closing at 4AM. Someone told me it was KDK involved so this might be permanent :(

    If you want to party past 4AM I don't know any disco now, but if you have friends with security at some places they can still rent karaoke room.

    ReplyDelete
  162. I just wanna ask you guys about entrance ticket price and and cost to buy E now.. I haven't go there about 2 years. Plese give some information about that.. thanksa lot.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Sorry.. I'm forget..
    How about the dress code there?

    ReplyDelete
  164. @anonymous what is KDK involved? new law from the government or something?

    ReplyDelete
  165. checked out stadium a few weeks back. Dress code casual, jeans/tshirt ok. Level 4 was busy, music is a little on the light side for my liking (Milles much better imho).

    can confirm the 4am closing, Milles is open a little later (5.30ish when i went). In regards to the 'clampdown', seems the best advice might be to leave before closing.

    Discobiscuit was going around for 300 or 350k, very questionable strength (3 different samples, very minimal buzz feeling) but the girly i was with seemed to get something from it.

    i think quite safe to go by yourself, a few bule roaming around. Better to go some bar on Jaksa or around the place and find a friend to accompany you.

    i wont bother to go back. i think its much riskier place than some of the other bars.

  166. Went around midnight last night and saw 3 buses from TNI (Indonesian military) parked out front. Taxi driver said it must be raid. We said fuck that so we told him to drive us back to the safety of the south. But then we ended up hitting another police checkpoint nearby, which I'd never seen in Kota before.

    I've been in Jakarta for a while, have gone to Stadium and clubs in the area many times, but I have never seen this much police/military presence in Kota. Whatever power the gangsters/generals that control these places had seems to no longer be enough to keep the government from looking the other way. A serious, extended crackdown is going on, and I would recommend that you stay away, not just from Stadium but the whole area, unless you want to risk a run-in with the cops.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Is there police control every evening? And who do they control? Everyone or just bule?

    ReplyDelete
  168. Any update on the situation?

    ReplyDelete
  169. Went there last weekend... Stadium is still Stadium but on Friday / Saturday closes at 8 and it's very difficult to find E...must be very careful cause all dealers have been arrested, and people is scared to get cough... Despite some difficulties, i had two great nights with wonderful music and atmosphere, just look more carefully for what you need ;-)

  171. Raid at the Stadium only? What about the clubs?

    ReplyDelete
  172. If there is a raid in Stadium, the security and the staff of the club will be informed in advance... just ask them and you will be ok...

    ReplyDelete
  173. what kind of money you looking at to make a positive test 'go away'?
    are their any particular days when the raids usually happen?
    don't know why my mate's have told me to post a comment like this..don't quite know what they're on about..maybe i'm naïve!!!

  174. is it ever going back to normal

    ReplyDelete
  175. Illegals and Milie's were both raided this weekend. The police had people already in the club and knew who they were going to test before they turned on the lights. Best advice- stay off E or even better advice- stay away. They arrested people for testing positive for weed.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Anyone there this past weekend?

    ReplyDelete
  177. Stadium is a shadow of its former self. They're selling dxm and happy5 and have been for about 2 months. The vibe is gone and it's not got the happy crowd it once had. Even the music is off as Dj Bobby goes on tour. Don't waste your time.

    ReplyDelete
  178. I'm in jk now and want fun tomorrow night, anyone know what the deal is? Would Millies be a better place to go? Are things back to normal? Doesn't seem like it with quite an extended attempt to snuff out the fun. Can anyone recommend a good place for tomorrow night to have a dance and get high?

    ReplyDelete
  179. is it back to normal?? im planing to come on the end of Augest is it a good time to visit?
    what is it about the police raids.. i thought its a safe place to do drugs inside.

    ReplyDelete
  180. actually i really wanted to go to stadium tonight is it crowded at weekdays? are the E still good?

    ReplyDelete
  181. I really miss the vibe... What is going on there now?

  182. Yeah im going with 4 dutch friends in 4 weeks so would like the E but the storys are changing evrey month?

  183. Anyone know current situation of STD? I would like to go to Jakarta again this summer. I know it will be Ramadan. Is it bad idea to go to STD during Ramadan especially this year?

    ReplyDelete
  184. Went on friday night and was pretty good. E was decent and sound system insane as ever. Getting back to the glory days.

  185. Stay away from yellow love it is a white colour pill and is shit can't fell nothing. Get pink rolex its red pill with R imprint cost more but is 1000 times better

    ReplyDelete
  186. It's a couple days before Ramadhan, might not be the smartest idea to head to a place like Stadium that has been getting an example made of itself recently. Better just go to Puja Sera or some thing off the beaten path.

    See you there tonight for one last night before time off.

    ReplyDelete
  187. I went to Stadium a few backs back, my sixth time there and it was my best time that I've had there. It was a Friday though which probably made a difference. They played all the usually Stadium anthems and I got hold of a few pills which are half decent but had a bit of a bad comedown from them but I haven't took them for a while so that could have played a part.

    I was going to go to Jakarta next week but I didn't fancy going during Ramadhan as I know places like Stadium shut earlier and wont be as busy.

    So I'm going to Bangkok now instead. Does anyone know if there is anywhere similar to Stadium in Bangkok in terms of music and avaibiltiy of drugs?

    ReplyDelete
  188. Still do the same operations during Ramadan?

    ReplyDelete
  189. Planning to go Stadium or Bats(only possibilites during ramadhan)next saturday(20.7).is it good idea or will that give too lame picture of Jakarta?Is there partys next saturday which i should go (lots of people,nice atmosphere etc.).anyone like to join or be a guide?

    ReplyDelete
  190. Hey man, depends how old you are. BATS and Stadium are at opposties ends of the party spectrum. BATS with its expat band playing old and new western songs, lots of old rich expats, and many hookers, mostly middle aged and tired looking. Closes at 1.30am during Ramadhan, will be busy for sure though.
    You will be able to goto any place with hotel in its name, so thats how Alexis, Maliboro etc stay open, and of course all the hotel bars.
    Stadium is everythign everyone above has said, it cant be described, i love it and i am a 40yr old expat. The pills on site are good, very good. My advice, go 4th floor, wallet front pocket, try find some expats to party with, I always find mid 20yr old expats there. Also advise if you take the pills, try not do it alone, it can be a scary place if your buzzing and alone.... have fun good luck, ps.. most of the girls, no matter how nice they seem will eventually either ask you for money or for pills :)

    ReplyDelete
  191. goto Stadium during Ramadhan, no problem. But I wouldnt take any drugs, theres a good chance youll be tested outside, especially true if your a foreignor...

    ReplyDelete
  192. Thanks for advices.i'm 33 year old but try to be and act like few years younger:)actually i have spend in stadium 3 nights 3,5years ago,best partynights in my life.but nowadays its seems too risky,even if you don't have anything but police but you in urine test,you are in big trouble.so stupid idea,but i gonna go stadium and take only couple of beer and look when braver ones have fun.

    ReplyDelete
  193. It's the best club for me. I'm 53, live in Jakarta as an expat.

  194. Hei guys, I've heard past weekend Stadium was super full and very good, including E... Any more details? I'm coming this Saturday in Jakarta just for it ;-) Hajar!

  195. let us know how it went,i gonna be there next weekend..

    ReplyDelete
  196. How it went? Well... Good news guys: STADIUM IS BACK! went last Saturday and yesterday night... Was wonderful... Music great as always (yesterday Bobby played from 4 to 6am), sound insane and nice people around, especially yesterday night (lots of friendly girls ;) and also E it's easy to find and pretty good! Invest 400k in Pink Rolex and you'll have a journey to heaven...without any transportation needed! I really enjoyed

    ReplyDelete
  197. Went there last weekend on both nights and the place was dead. Stayed until about 4am after about only 50 people showed up. Tried one of the pills and very much regret that decision. Very sick and bad headaches for days. Only about a dozen girls in the place and they're all very old and depressed. Pretty sure someone from Stadium wrote that last review, because this place has seen better days.
