De Leila (Arabic Nightclub) - FX Sudirman

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Update 24th October 2016 : 17 Moroccan prostitutes were arrested in De Leila over the weekend, yet strangely no newspaper was mentioning the name of the club. This is the review I wrote about the venue in March 2016: De Leila is an arabic nightclub located on the 8th floor of FX Sudirman, where Privé used to be. It is a popular party spot for tourists from the Middle East and particularly Saudis, Qatari and Emiratis. You have a few other nationalities such as Egyptians, Iranians, Turkish and Omanis. Even though most customers are Muslims, alcohol and prostitutes are widely available.

Kota Indah is the name of a small red light area with around 10 bars, clubs, spas and karaokes in North Jakarta. It is located in a street perpendicular to Jalan Pangeran Jayakarta in Glodok. For this reason, it is sometimes referred to as Pang-J or Pen-J. This is a map of the exact location (Kota Indah streets are highlighted in green):

Peach Blossom is a girlie bar, karaoke and spa (read "brothel") located in North Jakarta. It is within a tiny red-light complex with a few other massage parlors such as Dunia Sehat. It is not a very touristic area and you only have one hotel nearby, the Grand Asia (that has a karaoke as well).

Blok M (Jalan Falatehan)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
My previous visit to Jalan Falatehan was 3 years ago, during a memorable pub crawl, the Blok-M-thon. Last week (June 2011) was more healthy, but I still managed to visit each venues (except Highway to Elle ). My objective was to see if there was any update that could be made to this blog. For those unaware of the name, Jalan Falatehan is one of the two main red-light areas in South Jakarta (the other one being " Little Tokyo "). It is not very long, about 200 meters, and you'll find less than 10 bars, usually owned by foreigners . Here is a quick list, by order of appearance:

Starmoon Bar and Massage (Kota Indah)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Starmoon Café, Massage and Bar is a prostitution place located in the red light district of Kota Indah .  Nearby hotels include  Ibis Mangga Dua ,  Best Western Mangga Dua ,  Le Grandeur  and  Orchardz  (also a bordello actually). The owner of Star Moon was the owner of several joints in the now-closed Kalijodo area  (Mona Lisa, River Citra, etc). Many of the girls used to work there actually, which would indicate that contrary to what Ahok promised, they haven't been successfully rehabilitated.

Melawai Hotel 5+1, 6th Floor (Blok M nightlife Jakarta) CLOSED

By The Jakarta Team →
Famous massage parlour in  Hotel Melawai I , popular with expats (I swear I never went to this place!!). It is located on its 6th floor and called Maribaya bar. I'm not sure it’s even a bar, more likely a pure bordello. Some reports that a guy spent a whole week in it, without seeing daylight.

Su International Business Club and Karaoke (Senayan)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
  Su is one of the largest karaokes in South Jakarta. It is located in STC Senayan on the 5th floor (the now-closed  Hyu Karaoke  was on the 7th floor). It targets mostly Korean customers. It is clean and modern, but not as luxurious as other karaokes like Paragon . The main attraction here are the 150 girls that can accompany you in your room while you sing. In particular, if you ask for 2 or more LCs (Lady Companion), you can request them to wear a kimono or sexy lingerie. They won't have any bras then. Depending on how much you tip the girls or how drunk they are, you may do some kissing and groping. Some girls may be willing to go home with you after they finish their work but it's not automatic. Most are looking for a boyfriend or at least a sugar daddy.
