D'Luv BBC Nightclub & Karaoke (Balikpapan)

By Tibs →
D'Luv is a nightclub and karaoke located in Borneo Bay City (BBC) in Balikpapan. It is a relatively new venue that opened in 2015 and it is similar to LCC or Penthouse. It is near from the hotels Novotel and Ibis , and within 5 minutes from the 4-star Swiss Belhotel . If you don't already have a guest-friendly place to stay in Balikpapan, I recommend you to choose of them. D'Luv BBC is a typical upper class local joint with live bands, DJs and escorts. It is small, with a low ceiling, a good lighting and sound system, and a stage in the front. There is not a real dance floor nor a nice bar area, only high tables, so it is more appropriate for bottle service. They have interesting promotions such as two bottles of Jack Daniels for Rp1,300,000. Before midnight, they also have a free flow offer for Rp150,000.

Le Centro Club (LCC or L2C) - Balikpapan

By Tibs →
Opened in 2009 in Sudirman Square in Balikpapan (same building as the budget hotel Swiss-Belinn ), Le Centro Club is also called LCC or L2C. It is a small venue with usually a live band playing a mix of Indonesian and international songs, followed by a DJ (progressive, commercial). In between, you have sexy dancers wearing bikini or lingerie. It is not luxurious, but for Balikpapan nightlife standards, rather nice.

Embassy Nightclub (Balikpapan)

By Tibs →
Embassy is probably the best nightclub in Balikpapan at the moment. In the absence of real competition, it does not mean that much but still... It is modern, well-designed and the atmosphere on weekends is cheerful. It was opened by some of the owners of Opco Indonesia, the group behind Domain in Jakarta (and previously Embassy in Senayan). They are professional people who do love electronic music. In Balikpapan, they have DJs playing commercial tunes (EDM) but every week or so they bring a better one from Jakarta.
