Bakudapa Café & Resto is a live music spot featuring local artists playing old Indonesian favourites.. After you enter the door, the mamasan (indonesian pimp) will sit you with one of the girl hostesses, to whom you are invited to pay a drink and do some chit-chat. Very empty, and very sad music so it makes the whole experience very depressing... The only patrons are indonesian men in their forties... Worth to grab a beer if you don't know this kind of place. It is very close from the backpacker street Jalan Jaksa, less than 5 minutes by foot.

It is in the same building where once stood the Nusabunga Café, the lowest form of entertainment that existed in Jakarta back then.

  1. Bakupada closed in November 2011 after a man was killed inside I don't know if it will reopen or not.


    JAKARTA: A man, identified as Yosias L. Tanamal, was reported to have died after getting involved in a fight at Kafe Bakudapa in Menteng, Central Jakarta, early on Friday.

    Menteng Police chief Comr. Didi said that the victim was injured in the fight and was taken to a nearby hospital.

    “He died as a result of a severe stab wound to his back,” Didi said.

    The police have apprehended three men who were allegedly involved in the fight. The men had tried to drive away from the scene but failed after their vehicle hit a curb.

    The suspects face up to seven years in jail if found guilty of breaching the Criminal Code Article 351 (1) on physical abuse.
