Golden Dragon is a one stop entertainment center in Batam with a Chinese restaurant, a pub, a karaoke (KTV), a nightclub, a spa and a function hall for events. It is located near the seafront, about 2 kilometers from the city center (a nearby hotel is Aston).
Considering Lampung nightlife is limited to mostly dangdut cafés, it is one of the most recommended venues in the city (the other one to try is Centerstage in Novotel Hotel).
The club is very quiet during the week, unless they have a special event (sometimes on Wednesdays). Typically, they will have a live band playing Indonesian love songs, then a DJ playing more aggressive electronic music. On the weekend, they like to bring a hot female DJ from Jakarta and sometimes a few sexy dancers. The entrance fee (first drink charge) is Rp50,000 on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, Rp100,000 on Wednesday and Friday, Rp150,000 on Saturday. Girls get in for free before midnight.
The karaoke is rather basic and a bit old-fashioned. They have escorts/lady companions if you need any (you probably will). Standard rooms start at Rp800,000 minimum spend and the presidential room costs at least Rp5,000,000.
The spa has a sauna, a steam room, and even though I didn't try it, I'm pretty sure extra services are provided.
