Bandung Nightlife: Bars and Nightclubs (Updated 2021)

By Jakarta100bars →
Bandung nightlife is constantly changing and it can be hard to keep up with it. This is the fourth time I update this article and I'm pretty sure that within a couple of years, most nightclubs on this list will have disappeared. For this reason, I recommend you to check the hastag " Bandungclubbers " on Instagram as it is usually where you can get updates on the latest parties. Because Bandung is a vibrant student city, its nightlife caters mainly to young people in their late teens and early 20s. There are dozens of affordable cafés, restaurants, bars and clubs that are specifically targeting them, especially in areas like Jalan Setiabudi or within trendy malls such as Cihampelas Walk, Paris Van Java, and Trans Studio Mall. Note that for a majority of these students, the nightlife is alcohol-free and consists mainly of hanging out with friends at a coffee shops. There is also another nightlife scene, focused on domestic tourists who flock from Jakarta on the weekend

9 Square is a popular bar, restaurant, and café in Bandung. It is located just in front of Shelter nightclub, on Jalan Sulanjana. There is nothing fancy inside: You'll just find sofas and small tables where people hang out with their group of friends. Avoid it if you are alone.

Southbank Bar, Lounge and Club (Bandung)

By Jakarta100bars →
The new Southbank opened in 2016. It moved from Jalan Aceh to Jalan Sumatra, a street with several other nightlife venues. It is central and trendy location that I recommend if you are not familiar yet with Bandung. You can stay nearby in the Crowne Plaza Hotel , one of the best in the city. Southbank intends to keep the same concept as before. It is a bar/lounge that turns into a nightclub on weekends and for special events. More classy than its competitors, it is popular with an upmarket crowd that includes a lot of Indonesian-Chinese.

The Peak (Bandung)

By Jakarta100bars →
  The Peak is a very famous high-end restaurant in Bandung, quite distant from the town center. If you decide to visit it, you will need at least 1 hour, and you have to make sure you have a ride back home. The restaurant has a panoramic dining room with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. From there, you can get a stunning 360° view of the surroundings. The only problem is that the weather is not always good so in case of rain, you might not see so many things. Don't come at night also. The Peak is clearly upmarket and touristic. A meal will cost you at least Rp100,000 if you order local dishes, but much more if you go for western meals with imported ingredients. For instance, steaks cost from Rp68,500++ to an incredible Rp688,000++ for the Kobe beef! You can also choose to have a drink only, and it is very reasonable, for instance Rp21,000++ for a strawberry juice.

Sierra Café is a big restaurant in Dago Pakar, with a nice view over the hills of Bandung. There are different dining areas, on four floors, with a total capacity of 700 clients... It is not the place to go for an intimate dinner.
