Cloud 9 Bar & Restaurant (Bandung)

By Jakarta100bars →
Cloud 9 is one of the nicest bars and restaurants in Bandung, very romantic and cozy at night. Located on the hill of Dago, you will get a great view over the city, day and night. It is very popular with expats, tourists, and locals. The menu has dishes to please everyone: Salads for Rp30k, Chili Con Carne for Rp36k, Spaghetti for Rp33k, Burger for Rp40k, Nasi Goreng for Rp30k, etc.. I had a simple Margherita pizza (Rp40k++) and the Tenderloin (Rp66k++). The drink list if very long, with all the Top 50 cocktails in the world, and quite cheap, around Rp50k.

Braga Rave Club (ex-Caesar's Palace in Bandung)

By Jakarta100bars →
Update 2016 : Caesar's Place has been renamed Braga Rave Club: It has the Consortium Palace Disco, the Renaissance KTV, the Pandora Spa and the Entro Lounge. The review below is not exactly up to date as there has been some renovation work, but the spirit is the same. Old review: Caesar's Palace is an old-fashion night club on Jalan Braga. The place is quite cool, with modern lighting and sound system, but the music played is a kind of hardcore techno called funky house or "techno kota". Unless you are Indonesian, you won't like this place. I didn't see any foreigners there, but I can imagine some could be interested by the working girls, quite numerous on the dance floor.

The Loft (Bandung)

By Jakarta100bars →
New modern lounge with great atmosphere when I was there (a Friday night). Quite crowded, they had 2 or 3 birthday parties so everyone was excited and cheerful (and drunk).

Violet Live Music Bandung

By Jakarta100bars →
In front of Escobar pub , Violet is also a nice hangout spot with live music, yet maybe a bit older than its neighbour. It has live music every night at 22pm with local bands playing usually Top 40/American pop/rock with some Indonesian favourite depending on the crowd of the day. The sound system is a bit rough so don't stay too close from the speakers... Violet also serves some easy-to-prepare dishes, not really tasty but ok if you stick with the Indonesian ones.. No girls.

Klab Sentral Billiard Bandung

By Jakarta100bars →
Klab Sentral has a great atmosphere, it is almost like being in a movie... Great place to play billiard if you ask me.. lots of middle-aged Indonesians with rough faces (yet very nice), some old prostitutes on high heels playing with a cigarette on their lips .. No doubt you are in Indonesia..

Escobar (Bandung)

By Jakarta100bars →
Escobar is a cool little pub and live music venue, with a younger crowd than elsewhere on Braga. One of the best bars in Bandung (if you come the right day since weekdays are very quiet). Some students, and no prostitutes when I was there.

North Sea Bar (Bandung)

By Jakarta100bars →
Quite a popular spot of Bandung nightlife, North Sea bar is usually lively with some expats or travellers among the clients. Most of the girls are prostitutes but it is not too aggressive. Similar with bars you could find on Jalan Jaksa/Block M in Jakarta. They also serve some very average Western/Indo food. If you are a new to the city you may want to start your evening there, it is one of your best chances to meet someone to talk to.
