By Tibs →
I was somewhat disappointed with Yogyakarta nightlife. As a city famous for attracting students and tourists, I was expecting a fun party atmosphere with busy bars and nightclubs. On the contrary, Yogyakarta is quite conservative and provincial. There aren't so many venues to go out in the city, and most of them lack sophistication. I still had fun, but it took me a while before figuring out where to go out at night. The objective of this guide is to save you some time and give you the best tips to enjoy Yogyakarta nightlife as a foreigner. If new bars and clubs open, please mention them in the comments to help me keep this review up-to-date.

I noticed that venues open and close really fast, so make sure to check the Facebook or Instagram of the ones I list below. I invite you to leave a comment as well at the end of the article if you have any updates to share.
