Muse Pub, KTV and Beer House (Samarinda)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Muse Entertainment Center is a huge complex on several floors with a club, a 22-room karaoke and a rooftop bar/restaurant (recently renamed Beer House). It is next to Mitra Pub, another nightlife venue, and 100 meters from Samarinda Central Plaza. This is the best area for choosing a hotel in the city as you have two of its best options within 300 meters.  Aston  is the best choice but more expensive (50$/night).  Swiss Belhotel  is just 3 minutes away by foot and it costs less than 40$/night.

Deja Vu Kitchen, Bar & KTV - Samarinda (Kalimantan)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Deja Vu is the most famous nightclub in Samarinda and probably one of the most happening. It is located in the city center, near from other nightlife spots such as Crowners or D'Lux (which both belong to the same group). Two good guest-friendly hotels nearby are the Horison  (Rp400,000±) and the Aston (Rp600,000±, only 5 minutes by cab). The Swiss Belhotel is slightly further (Rp400,000±) but it's a good option as well.

Crowners Pub & KTV - Samarinda Nightlife

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Crowners Pub & KTV is a nightclub in Samarinda (Borneo). It is located inside a big, easy-to-recognize, grey and red building on Jalan Tuanku Imam Bonjol. It is not far from the Horison Hotel (guest-friendly, recommended) and from its sister club Deja Vu. The standards of Crowners are surprisingly decent for a mid-sized Indonesian town (not that surprising actually when you know that Samarinda is the capital of one of the richest provinces in the country). 

Celcius Nightclub (Samarinda - Kalimantan)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Celcius Club, Lounge & KTV is an upmarket nightclub in Samarinda, just behind the airport. There are no decent hotels in the immediate proximity so I advise you to stay instead either in  Aston , in  Horison  or in  Swiss Belhotel  (which are all near from venues like Deja Vu , D'Lux or  Crowners ). Celcius is located inside an impressive building and the inside is rather luxurious. It has the best atmosphere of any clubs in Samarinda with beautiful LED displays both on the walls and on the ceiling ("raining light" effect).

Mitra Club & Karaoke (Samarinda - Borneo)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Mitra is a mid-size club & karaoke which is located in a building right next to the more upscale Muse . It is within walking distance (5 minutes) from the hotels  Aston  and  Swiss Belhotel  that are both under 50$ per night.  Its concept is basically the same as Muse, but it targets a more "local" and less sophisticated crowd. The bands will play a lot more Indonesian songs for instance and the DJs will mix hardcore "funky house". There are some girls as well, most of which are lady companions, but again not as pretty as the ones in the club next door. The advantage is that it is a bit cheaper and that you are most likely to become an attraction if you visit it. I'm not sure about their weekly program, but on Saturdays at least they have sexy dancers.
