Alexis Hotel, Club and Karaoke (Ancol) - Still Open

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

Classic Club Karaoke & Massage Parlour (or Bunker) (Classic Hotel, Jl. K.H. Samanhudi 43-45, Pasar Baru Jakarta)

By The Jakarta Team →
I went to Classic Club after hearing of a club named "the Bunker"... enough to arouse my curiosity. It took me two months of investigation to find it. The bar is in Classic Hotel and it is actually called Classic Club. It is a one-stop entertainment nightclub with spa/karaoke/massage, a bit like Malioboro , with lots of girls from Uzbekistan also. 100% prostitutes. The patrons are mostly Indonesians (no european/american expats but a few Indian and Arab) in their 30s or 40s, so the music is not the hippest you will hear in Jakarta. On the second floor, there is a room called Terminal Classic , where you can see full nude sexy dancers, and lots of them. Famous because you can ask for a threesome. On the 5th floor, there is an even larger room, with more prostitutes and more sexy dancers. In case you are wondering, YES it is possible to sleep in the hotel. The best way is to book through Agoda at the following address: Book Classic Hotel Jakarta .

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.

Karaokes and KTVs in Jakarta (Complete Guide)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Karaoke and KTV bars in Jakarta are used for a multitude of purposes. Singing is one of them, but it is definitely not the only reason. Most commonly, they are used for prostitution, drugs, private parties, striptease and sometimes orgies. As a foreigner, it took me several years to understand what was truly going on behind those doors. It is only after discussing with girls, clients and club owners, that I finally realized what karaokes were for and why Indonesians are so crazy about them.

Small nightclub and karaoke in Pecenongan (North Jakarta) with a Formula 1 theme. They have live music or DJs, usually with progressive house. You can request a lady companion while you drink. There is no entrance fee and it's free to sit at a table. If you want a VIP sofa you must spend a minimum of 7,5M. They also have sexy dancers (topless) occasionally. Overall : It's a middle class venue for Indonesians so you can expect cheaper prices and average standards. The crowd is underground, including many clubbers on drugs. They organize Sunday parties in the afternoon from 1pm to 8pm. Similar to Mille's in Lokasari.
