Moonlight disco is the only gay club in Kota (Stadium is mixed). For a newcomer, it will certainly feel dangerous and scary. It was very hot when I visited but apparently, they bought A/C to replace the fans. The crowd is a weird bunch, like often in gay clubs: Gays, bisexuals, lesbians, lady boys, etc... from all ages and classes.

I recommend you to go there with someone you trust and to keep an eye on your glass at all time. There are very few foreigners so expect to receive a lot of attention.

Moon light is not opened every night but Wednesday, Friday and Saturday should be fine. Be aware that many guys inside are prostitutes. Drugs (ecstasy) is everywhere too.

I have a bad photo of the building taken during the day but it's better than nothing (you should be able to read ML Diskotik):

  1. More information please. Has anyone been to this place? Anyone got some photos to post? Are there plenty of ladyboys in here? Would be nice to catch up with some ladyboys in a bar setting. Something about driving around Taman Lawang at night seems a little bit off.

  3. i went there often a long time ago,,,, there were a few ladyboys,,,
    There are all ages including underage (so beware) all classes, so watch your wallet too..
    But as i say i went there often, cos it was good fun and felt natural. But if you like your clubbing full of bling, then dont choose here, as the sign hasn't changed i doubt the insides have much too...this is as basic as it gets....
    Dirty, cheap, some say dangerous although i had nothing but fun, stay wise and you will a good story to tell,, Stadium is right next door,, so u can bail out if ML doesnt work for u

  4. I am a Westerner and have been going to ML for many years. Yes it is for lower class gays. It is dark and crowded esp on a Saturday night. The toilets are pretty vile. The AC is bad and the alcohol is limited to beer and some local whiskey. There are some pickpockets so don't bring valuables. But there is no way I would call it dangerous. The guys are extremely friendly. As there is usually only 1-5 Westerners and up to 300 locals a Westerner will be quite popular. If the inside gets too stuffy, just walk out to the balcony for some fresh air. Plus you can actually see the faces of the guys. Enjoy !

  5. It's been five years since I went to Moonlight, and now I went again tonight, Wednesday, with a ladyboy friend of mine. I always liked it and I still do. Luckily it has not succumbed to the elsewhere so typical Jakarta-trend of fixing what ain't broken. The same. Yes, the points above have merit, however, I never in any way felt any kind of threat there from any one. They still have the policy of large bottle Anker (Rp 35.000) and some weird whisky, if you want to go down that road. Compared to Apollo and the new Heaven (gay clubs) Moonlight is definitely just as much fun at a reduced price. And the balcony outside is a plus - always was. Strictly for gays and guys attracted to ladyboys.

  14. I went there on may 14th. It's a good laugh, but keep your wits about you. Think of a gay fusion of mad max and from dusk to dawn, and that's a start towards describing it. It's a bit like an oversized blue boy from kuala lumpur, only with more people and much cheaper booze.

  15. If you look for a fancy mix ambience try stadium disco, but if you are gay and looking for local ambience then ML is your site and not as scary as somebody says...
