MO Bar (Mandarin Oriental Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars

A relatively new-comer in the Jakarta nightlife scene, MO Bar has become quite popular for its ladies' night on Tuesday, especially with the few single expat women living in the city* (Update June 2015: There is no more Ladies Night in MO).

MO bar is not very big but it is elegant. It looks quite similar with the bar in Hyatt, Burgundy, for its cozy and dim-lighted atmosphere. But I prefer Burgundy because from there you have an incredible view over Jakarta.

The prices are expensive, around Rp120k for a cocktail, in line with similar venues. You can also have some snacks (tapas) or bring food from Mandarin Oriental restaurant's Lyon.
MO Bar a bit empty on a Monday night...
Like absolutely any hotel bars in Jakarta (from Mistere to B.A.T.S.), there are some working girls any night of the week, most of them not looking very fresh. And as the night goes on, the cuties tend to go away, leaving very few options for the late customers.

Event schedule: The live DJ plays only on Tuesday and Thursday, so any other night should be quiet. On Saturday, they have live blues music.

* If you happen to be an expat women living in Jakarta, you can check out  Jakarta Nightlife for Women for information about the best party spots for girls.
Opening hours:
5pm to 2am (Monday to Saturday)
5pm to midnight (Sunday)
Happy hours from 5pm to 8pm

  1. I went to the ladies night last Tuesday. Pretty quiet and female clientele close to 100% whores, mostly taking advantage of free drinks before looking for customers in CJs. Probably wouldn't bother again unless I wanted a date on the cheap.

  2. I went there with friends during ladies night and we are not hookers, we are working girl and looking for a fun night, that's all

    not every women in the club or bars are hookers u morron

  3. So I feel like I have to speak up for this place. I am actually writing this while staying at the Mandarin Oriental. I have been into this bar every night for the last 4 nights and I have only seen 2 working girls. Nothing like every other bar in Jakarta. Other than that it has been a calm place to have a few drinks and conduct some business. Very standard classy hotel bar. I hate to see places getting a bad wrap.

  4. I have been here on any other day and its nice enough yet quiet. However as write it is half eleven and well... Let's just say it would give Blok M a run for money. I'm quite amazed

    Expensive- I just paid idr260k for a double jim beam on the rocks.

  5. I am not a hooker, I'm a working girl. lol.

    So no live band here? What's the point of it? Cheap costs but expensive drinks? No thanks.

  6. Hey,I like this bar,especially on ladies nite coz they have 2 djs spinning their music until 2am in the morning.usually I came with my collagues after work hour,only take 5 go there from the office.this place is good for talking shit,drinks & dance crazy after a long day at work:)

  7. Went there twice, last time was back on Tuesday and first time it was back in May. Plenty of working girls. Ratio is about 80 to 90% girls. However, most of them have lost their fresh ages ago (many are clearly way above 40). One or two stunnings, but nothing really extraordinary. I would give most of the girls 4-5 on a scale of ten. Cheers.

  8. "we are not hookers, we are working girl" HAHAHA

  9. most people left here long time ago to the neighboring Face Bar.
