Troy 518 Pool and Lounge (Kelapa Gading)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars)
Troy 518 is a bar, nightclub and billiard lounge located in Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta. It is on the first floor of an office building, Harton Tower, next to McDonald's. Opened in mid-2016, I only heard of it recently and I visited it yesterday (Saturday, April 29th) at 2 AM. 

It is a bit far from Jakarta's main nightlife district (SCBD), but at night, with no traffic, you can reach it in only 15-20 minutes.

It is shaped like an L with the pool lounge in one corner, the seating area in the other one, and the dancefloor/bar in the middle. At full capacity, you can probably fit at least 400 people inside.

Nothing too fancy in the design. The floor is raw concrete and the walls only feature alcohol brands merchandising. Their 4 pool tables are brand-new and it cost IDR60,000/hour to use them.

It was almost empty on that night. In total, there were less than 40 guests, all Indonesians, including around 10 girls. My impression was that some of them were hostesses working in Troy 518, maybe as pool companions.

The DJ was playing Stadium-style music (a particular kind of trance/house/techno from the now-closed Stadium nightclub). I enjoyed it even though it was a bit too loud. It seemed to have caused the waiters to go deaf because it took them 5 minutes to understand that I wanted a draught beer.

Prices are quite reasonable: IDR45,000 for draught Bintang. IDR90,000 for a cocktail.

Overall: Troy 518 is an alternative to places like Afterhours. You can play pool while partying and drinking at the same time.

Depending on their events, they may be really full from time to time. You can check their social media accounts below for more information about that.

Opening Hours:
From Tuesday to Sunday from 4 PM until 3 AM. If there is an event, it might close until 5-6 AM.

DJ every day. Live band on Wednesday and Friday.
