Old City is a nightclub and karaoke located in North Jakarta, about 200 meters from the Fatahillah Museum and 500 meters from Colosseum.

I had already visited it in 2009 when it was called Athena and to be honest it hasn't changed much. It is a hardcore party spot with deafening techno music, a dark vibe and drugs aplenty. It is a bit dodgy, especially the surroundings, and you may bump into a few weird customers, but it is still safe to visit.

There is only one main room which is quite big and decorated with a classic Roman style. The karaoke is rather old but it is affordable. It has lady companions and the waiters probably sell more ecstasy than beer.

I saw some flyers about sexy dancers and topless female DJs but they didn't seem to be updated and I'm not sure the events still happen today.

While I would not have recommended this place a few months ago, I would say it could be an alternative to the now-defunct Mille's. If only they could have more Western music it would be perfect as an after hour underground nightclub.

Opening Hours:
Everyday until 6AM (according to the security guard who told me)
