Queen Rose Nightclub (Bandung)

By Jakarta100bars →
Queen Rose is located not very far from Bandung Station, in front of Paskal Hypersquare. It is an executive club, meaning a girly/prostitute venue, but not only (at least from my observations). I saw inside quite many lesbians, and maybe some ladyboys too but my friend said they were real women. Not a student crowd, average 35 years-old. No foreigners at all. Surprisingly for this kind of club, the atmosphere was really fun and easy-going, especially if you come with a group of friends. The club was only 1/3rd full, but most customers were dancing and singing when the live band was on. I think many customers are loyal and know each other so it added to the positive vibe. At around 00h30, the DJ started to play house/progressive tracks: Good sound system, though the music stopped at one point for about 5 minutes for unknown reasons. Another thing worth mentioning, someone tried to offer me some ecstasy. I don't know if it is a common thing in this club or not.

Braga Rave Club (ex-Caesar's Palace in Bandung)

By Jakarta100bars →
Update 2016 : Caesar's Place has been renamed Braga Rave Club: It has the Consortium Palace Disco, the Renaissance KTV, the Pandora Spa and the Entro Lounge. The review below is not exactly up to date as there has been some renovation work, but the spirit is the same. Old review: Caesar's Palace is an old-fashion night club on Jalan Braga. The place is quite cool, with modern lighting and sound system, but the music played is a kind of hardcore techno called funky house or "techno kota". Unless you are Indonesian, you won't like this place. I didn't see any foreigners there, but I can imagine some could be interested by the working girls, quite numerous on the dance floor.

New Braga Club (Bandung)

Old club with DJ and live dangdut band. The place never really gets full and the crowd is rather old. Some depressing working girls.

Amnesia Night Club (Bandung)

By Jakarta100bars →
Amnesia is my favourite club of the Bandung’s nightlife scene: quite large, around 600 people dancing, some of them on a central podium, with House/progressive music and some Top 40 songs remixed. Very smoky, there is also a lot of "ayam", but not only. I guess it shouldn't be too hard in here to meet a girl. It is a happy mix of students, tourists, executives, and expats. You get an underground vibe here that I really enjoy. During the week it will be half crowded, but still ok for party, and during the weekend it is usually full and wild. Great place to have fun while visiting Bandung! Amnesia also has a karaoke, not tried yet, on the last floor.

Fame Station (Bandung)

By Jakarta100bars →
The Fame Station is a night club, bar and live music venue, especially popular with students. It is located a bit far from Bandung's town center, so you will need a cab or even better, your own car to get there (to come back you will have to wait a bit if you come with a taxi). They usually start the evening with a local live band, and then end it with electro/progressive or other depending on the DJs. Ladies' night is on Thursday and is always quite popular: Free entry and free illusion for all girls, guys have to pay Rp50k. Small dancing area, most people dance around their tables unfortunately, so less opportunities to meet people than in other Bandung clubs, in particular Amnesia or Legacy .

Legacy (Bandung)

By Jakarta100bars →
Quite conveniently located in downtown Bandung, Legacy nightclub (ex-Amare club) is a fun party spot with almost only Indonesians. Quiet during the week, it will be crowded on weekends, especially during the campus nights or any other events organized here quite regularly. The music on a normal day will be a mix of all the popular songs of the moments, RnB, Pop, House, etc.. Not great, but good party atmosphere inside, even a bit wild since everybody's completely drunk. Though it is a heterosexual club, many gays, and even some male sexy dancers on special occasions... But it's rather amateur and fun, it should not be taken too seriously.. At the end of the night, lots of drunk girls dancing on the tables and on the podium, it reminded me of Red Square 5 years ago.. On the negative side: The quality of the sound system is an issue, especially when the basses are loud.
