Alexis Hotel, Club and Karaoke (Ancol) - CLOSED

By The Jakarta Team →
Update 30 October 2017: Alexis was shut down by the new Governor of Jakarta. As I explained in my article Jakarta Nightlife in 2017  (last paragraph), this was likely to happen because it was an important campaign promise. 2nd Update 10 January 2018: Alexis is still open, except for the last floor, the spa, whose activities have been transferred to 1001 and Emporium. The club and the karaoke are operating as usual. The Hotel Alexis is not really a hotel, it’s more like a bordello. You’ve got a good club downstairs, The Play, with house/progressive music and sexy dancers, and a very select lounge/spa on the seventh floor, the Bathhouse, with girls from countries as far as Uzbekistan, Myanmar or Russia coming to entertain the patrons. Entrance fee for the Bathhouse lounge is Rp. 120,000, and no drinks included. Also a karaoke on the 5th floor (I forgot the name), very nice, with flat screen TV and audio equipment suitable for outdoor concerts. Goddam expensive though, about R

The Sexy Pool at 1001 Hotel (Bikini Party)

By Jakarta100bars →
The Pool @1001 is a new concept developed by the Alexis Group . It is located in the same building as Colosseum nightclub . Only male clients are allowed in the pool area, where you have sexy dancers and bikini shows by swimsuit hostesses. You can watch them from private cabanas and you can also invite them to spend time with you. It is not a totally new concept as it already exists in Malioboro or D'Heaven (among few others). The only difference is that in those places, you will see the girls only once or twice at certain times, on certain days. The Pool @ 1001 promises almost non-stop performances and activities. A few months ago, a bikini party organized by a group of high school students created a bit of a sh*storm (see article from Jakarta Globe ). Maybe this is where they got their idea from.

Léon Restaurant and Goldstein Bar (Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars →
Léon Restaurant and its speakeasy bar Goldstein are both located in the same building on Jalan Wijaya in South Jakarta (previously occupied by Nine Muses). As of 2017, they are among the trendiest nightlife venues in the capital, attracting the local elite, celebrities, models, etc. One advice if you go: Dress well and be prepared to be surrounded by hoards of beautiful people. One reason it is so popular is because this is where the Anies-Sandiaga team celebrated their victory over Ahok-Djarot in the 2017 Gubernatorial Election. They threw a free-flow alcohol party that was mocked on social media, considering Anies had won the race by playing the devout Muslim card.

Tease Club (Striptease and Live Sex)

By Jakarta100bars →
Tease Club is located inside Emporium Spa , on Jalan Pecenongan. It has been managed by the Alexis group (behind Alexis and Colosseum ) for a couple years now. It is the only club that has live sex shows in Jakarta to my knowledge. Yes you read correctly. Every Wednesday night, they have those special events with actors (woman and male) performing sexual acts in the club. I never saw it but the staff from Tease Club gave us the information. They were telling us to come back in a few days because they have "Pattaya style sex shows". The same staff also proposed us to pay to get one of the stripteasers (who go fully nude) in the hotel room. The price they wrote down was 400,000rp for a handjob (20 min), 620,000rp for a blowjob, and 1,800,000 for full sex in the room. I tried to keep the paper but the waiter insisted to take it back. Since I'm in Jakarta, I had never seen a bar/club behind so upfront about sex. I don't know if it is because the owner is wel

Monty's Restaurant and Whisky Bar (Senopati)

By Jakarta100bars →
Monty's is one of the hippest and most exclusive venues in Jakarta at the moment. The day I visited, you had 1 Ferrari, 1 Lamborghini, 2 Porsches, 2 Jaguars and several nice sports cars parked just in front. That should give you an idea of the crowd. It was opened by Klabo , the same group behind Nip & Dram and Ivy Kitchen. From what I've heard, the owner of Blue Bird Taxis is one of the shareholders.  The Restaurant On the first two floors is a restaurant serving classic European food. They have all the priciest ingredients that you can possibly import in Indonesia such as caviar, lobster, truffle, charcuterie, cheese or wagyu beef. There also serve several organic and healthy dishes. The kitchen is headed by a Norwegian expat who previously worked in Grand Hyatt as an executive sous-chef. The price is rather expensive: On average for a 2-course meal you'll spend at least Rp500,000 (without alcohol). You can try it for lunch as they have a

Proof (Senayan Golf Course - Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars →
Proof is a high-end lounge located in the main building of the Senayan Golf Club, about 200m after Senayan City and on the opposite side of Plaza Senayan. I visited on a Friday night and it was full with a wealthy crowd. I recognized several socialites and at least one heir from one of Indonesia's richest families. There was also a Rolls Royce and a Lamborghini parked outside if you need a better idea of who goes there. People were almost all between 30-50 except for  a few very hot-looking girls in their early 20s.

21 Best Weekend Brunches in Jakarta

By Jakarta100bars →
Sunday or Saturday brunches in Jakarta are one of the best things you can do here during the weekend. The prices are usually very reasonable without alcohol, starting 30$ per person. I only listed here information about the weekend brunches available in luxury hotels. You also have many brunches served in independent restaurants, but they generally do not have as much choice and they are not served as buffets. You can try those in Loewy or Koi for instance. This is the list of the best weekend brunches in Jakarta, ranked in no particular order. Please leave a comment below if you think I forgot a great address.
