PIK Nightlife: Best Bars and Clubs

By Tibs
Currently, PIK is one of the favorite spots for wealthy, young Indo-Chinese to hang out in Jakarta. Many among them live in the Pluit area and they are looking for an alternative to going to South Jakarta's hot spots in SCBD or Senopati. The type of food available is also the one most popular with this community. In particular, the availability of pork on the menu of a restaurant in PIK is the key to success. This is also a good location to eat Korean BBQ, Taiwan desserts, or to drink Soju drinks.

Nightlife in PIK
Most of the popular places are located in the streets surrounding the Damai Indah Golf course, namely Jalan Marina Indah and Jalan Pantai Indah Kapuk (near the Jakarta Outer Ring Road). 

The nightlife in PIK is similar to the nightlife in Kemang 10 years ago: The bars/clubs are more like beer gardens or cafés with loud music and an improvised dance floor. You won't pay an entrance fee and there is no strict dress code.

I used to list here a number of popular bars in PIK, but I removed them since the happening places are changing so often. If you are new to the area, you can check Holywings first as it is normally always busy. Then from there, you can ask someone for recommendations.

Please don't hesitate to leave a comment below with your suggestions as well.
