Kowloon International Palace is a one-stop entertainment complex in Surabaya. It features C-bar (live music), Kowloon (nightclub) and a Chinese restaurant. They also do weddings and concerts in their function hall.

It is located on the 5th floor of the mid-class mall Plaza Surabaya. The first time I went there, the taxi dropped me off at the lobby, but there is no lift so I had to walk through the parking to get there. Make sure you get dropped on the 5th floor.

The nightclub is a typical Indonesian disco with drugs and prostitution easily available. Within 5 minutes I was there, I was offered ecstasy by the waiters and 2 girls came to my table asking me if I needed company. It is in the shape of a large rectangle, half the size of a football field, with barely any decoration. It is dark and the only thing you can see is the DJ on his podium and the giant TV screens.

The music was loud "happy" techno which can be quite boring if you are not at least drunk. The best part of my visit was the sexy dancers show that lasted about 15 minutes. The girls were really hot and the whole time I was wondering if they would do a striptease (they didn't and kept their bras on).
If I had come earlier, I could have enjoyed live music in C-Bar. Entrance fee was Rp30,000 with 1 free pack of LA cigarettes. The cheapest beer inside was a whopping Rp70,000.

Overall: If you want to take drugs and party hard until 7am, this is one of the best venues for it in Surabaya (the other one is Station Top 10).

  1. Wanted to have a look...very similar to Golden Crown Palace in Jakarta. Horrible housemusic, way too loud. Annoying waiters and no people inside. Perfect waste of time and money. Even if you would like a dark night out this is just a horrible place...at least I tried...good luck gentlemen!
