Jenja (Jakarta)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars)
Located in Cilandak Town Square (CiToS), Jenja is the newest nightclub to open in Jakarta. They had their first public night on August 5th, 2016 with a set from the German DJ Oliver Huntemann.

It is their second branch after Bali, where Jenja is currently one of the best nightclubs. On the island, it is popular with expats, particularly because of the music they play (electro/tech-house/techno, the kind you would hear in Berlin, see 12 DJs I Want To See in Jakarta). Their design is nice as well but it is not the main reason for their success in my opinion.

I hope they will be successful as this could be a game changer for Jakarta nightlife. It would be the only nightclub in South Jakarta that does not play commercial music (EDM, house, Rn'B, etc).

I'm a bit skeptical about their location though. To be successful, they need a trendy crowd that Cilandak may not have. You have expats and rich Indonesians, but mostly families. I wonder if the people who currently party in SCBD/Mega Kuningan will accept driving 30 minutes to Cilandak. Or maybe I'm underestimating the clubbing crowd in South Jakarta?

We will know the answer soon. Please leave a comment if you have partied in Jenja. I'm not in Jakarta until September so I won't be able to visit it until then unfortunately!

  1. The owners of Jenja also own CITOS, hence why it is opening there. Likewise the Bali location "Town Square" is owned by them. So it makes sense to open in a building you own but I agree it could be a bit of a trek to get there, however at 11pm at night the traffic is not so much of an issue? I mean people go to Illegals after DF and that is hardly across the road.

    1. Some people even go as far as Colosseum...

      Do you know if Mamsa is also a shareholder in Jenja Jakarta?

    2. I was told it was the same group / shareholders etc so I presume that applies to Jakarta too

    1. Techno and tech house are not really specific...

      By German electro, I meant the kind of electro you would hear in a Berlin club. Maybe they changed since but that's what I was listening to when I visited.

    2. The first famous DJs announced for the opening of Jenja are Olivier Huntemann (German), Marc Romboy (German) and MANDY (German)... Seems like German electro to me...

    3. If you want to hear legit tech house or techno, Colosseum regularly host ETV (Enter The Void) next episode will be on 16th August

  3. Expat here living in Cilindak. Excited by the prospect of a decent nightclub opening in the area as at the moment the closest options are in Kemang or Union in Pondok Indah Mall but that is more a bar then nightclub. I can tell you there are literally thousands of apartments under construction within a short distance of CITOS so there will probably be a good catchment area of people and also from Kemang to CITOS is only about a 15 min taxi ride later a night. Whether it will attract people that far South from Central Jakarta is hard to say. Will be interesting to see their music policy and opening hours. I suspect being in a mall closing time will be by 5am on weekends unless they locate the entrance at the carpark similar to Exodus. From CITOS to Colosseum it takes about 45 mins via the Outer Ring Road Tollway for those who might enjoy a later party.

  4. How long will it be be until this place is packed with a bunch of JIS/expat high school students? It is right in the neighborhood and far more convenient than Fable and X2.

  5. Secara pribadi sih kurang masuk ya sama genre yang dimainkan di jenja (bali), kalau di jakarta pun sama, mungkin ga banyak anak muda yang akan kesitu

  6. So I went on Wednesday (15th of september) to Jenja , first of all in the night time it took me only 15 minutes from thamrin to get there which is not that bad. The club was crowded but not super packed. The crowed wasn't as high class as I expected. Not really beautiful people as well. Only a very few expects like a handful. 250k for the entrance fee and most disappointing was the music. They played R&B all night long, for somebody who likes that, it was good R&B as far as I can say. The speakers were a bit to overpowered as topical in indonesia. Prices on the menu list are without taxes and service charge which makes it a bit anyone paying 67300 for a beer. All in all it was not more than average. Maybe a lot better on the weekend, when they play the music, they are famous for (tech house etc.)

    1. FDC Jenja is Rp150,000 for normal days and Rp250,000 for bigger DJs (FDC stands for first drink charge = the entry + a drink). If you come with a group it's best to order a bottle of alcohol.
