Tangerang Nightlife: Exploring BSD and Serpong

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
I've been living in Tangerang for over a month now and I've had a few occasions to visit the bars and nightclubs there. This review will give you a short overview of the nightlife in Tangerang and more precisely in the new cities Bumi Serpong Damai (BSD) and Gading Serpong. Note : If you need a hotel, please check Serpong Hotel Deals and Tangerang Hotel Deals  (I make a small commission on every booking but the price does not change for you and it helps me maintain Jakarta100bars). Overview of Tangerang Enigma Nightclub in Gading Serpong

Enigma Nightclub (Gading Serpong - Tangerang)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Enigma is a complex on several floors with a nightclub, a sports bar, a billiard room and a restaurant. It is located in Gading Serpong, an area of South Tangerang (1 hour from Jakarta by car). It is walking distance from Summarecon Mall, Clique Bar & Kitchen , Grand Royal Spa ,  Atria Hotel , Atria Residences , Ara Hotel and Ibis Hotel .

Clique Bar & Kitchen (Gading Serpong - Tangerang)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Clique is a restaurant, bar and nightclub located in Gading Serpong, in the vicinity of Summarecon Mall. It is open daily for lunch and dinner, serving moderately-priced Italian and International food. I haven't eaten there though as I visited at 2am on a Saturday night. Just before that, I was partying in Enigma which is just 3 minutes away by taxi (you could also walk there if you aren't too lazy). The clubbing area of Clique is rather small and I don't think it could hold more than 200 people. You have a long bar on one side, the DJ booth in the back, a small dancefloor and a dozen high tables. There are some cool mural paintings of pop icons like John Lennon, Marilyn Monroe and Micheal Jackson.

Venetian Spa @ Grantage Hotel (Serpong)

The Grantage is a hotel located in BSD, Serpong, near from the Damai Indah golf course. Though not that expensive ( US$50 a night on Agoda ), it is decorated in a kind of grandiose, classic roman design that often announces a naughty place in Indonesia. It has a rooftop bar called the "Sky Lounge" with live music and a resident DJ. The band schedule is available on their Instagram account below. They also have a karaoke with lady companions (11 karaoke rooms). The most interesting though is their spa, called The Venetian. I suspect it is part of the same group as The Venetian Bandung (and therefore of the nightclub Venesia ). They have some very pretty therapists that are willing to do a little more than a massage (the management calls it "romantic service"). The spa facilities include a jacuzzi, a gym, a sauna, 7 deluxe rooms and 8 VIP rooms.

The Venesia BSD - Tangerang Nightlife

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Update December 2016:  I went to Venesia with a friend last Saturday night. The entrance fee was Rp150,000 (Rp100,000 during week days) so we hesitated a bit before paying. We finally did after the receptionist told us the club was full. It turned out she lied and it was almost empty. The only people there were a group of 3 lady companions who were playing on their phones and didn't even acknowledge our presence. The DJ was playing music from the 90s (Ace of Base, Inner Circle, etc). Just before leaving, we ordered a beer and it turned out the price was Rp75,000 each. Original review: The Venesia Executive Hotel, Club and Karaoke is located in BSD (Bumi Serpong Damai) in Tangerang. It is at least one hour away from Jakarta. To my knowledge, it is the only upper class one-stop entertainment venue in Tangerang. For those who don't know, one-stop entertainment venues in Indonesia are big complexes with generally a hotel, a spa, a karaoke, a restaurant and a clu
