Kabuki Executive Club and Karaoke (Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars →
Kabuki is an executive club and karaoke located in Lokasari, near Jalan Mangga Besar (West Jakarta). It replaces Newton , which was a similar yet less fancy venue. It is part of the Alexis Group, which currently owns 1001, Club 36, Zen Club, Emporium and Colosseum. They lost their flagship property, Alexis, in 2018 after it was shut down by the new governor. You might actually notice that the main lounge in Kabuki looks similar to 4Play, the club that was on the first floor of Alexis. I was not able to take any photos inside Kabuki because the security put a sticker on my phone's camera. They seem to take privacy very seriously, probably to avoid having the same trouble as they had with Alexis. What happens inside is not outrageous, though. The lounge itself is medium sized, with 3 podiums in the middle, and VIP areas on the side. You have sexy dancers, but they are wearing clothes and do not perform stripteases. They can be taken to the rooms upstairs, for IDR2

The Sexy Pool at 1001 Hotel (Bikini Party)

By Jakarta100bars →
The Pool @1001 is a new concept developed by the Alexis Group . It is located in the same building as Colosseum nightclub . Only male clients are allowed in the pool area, where you have sexy dancers and bikini shows by swimsuit hostesses. You can watch them from private cabanas and you can also invite them to spend time with you. It is not a totally new concept as it already exists in Malioboro or D'Heaven (among few others). The only difference is that in those places, you will see the girls only once or twice at certain times, on certain days. The Pool @ 1001 promises almost non-stop performances and activities. A few months ago, a bikini party organized by a group of high school students created a bit of a sh*storm (see article from Jakarta Globe ). Maybe this is where they got their idea from.

Old City Nightclub and Karaoke (Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars →
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.

Kota Indah Jakarta - Red Light Area in North Jakarta

By Jakarta100bars →
Kota Indah is the name of a small red light area with around 10 bars, clubs, spas and karaokes in North Jakarta. It is located in a street perpendicular to Jalan Pangeran Jayakarta in Glodok. For this reason, it is sometimes referred to as Pang-J or Pen-J. This is a map of the exact location (Kota Indah streets are highlighted in green):

Starmoon Bar and Massage (Kota Indah)

By Jakarta100bars →
Starmoon Café, Massage and Bar is a prostitution place located in the red light district of Kota Indah .  Nearby hotels include  Ibis Mangga Dua ,  Best Western Mangga Dua ,  Le Grandeur  and  Orchardz  (also a bordello actually). The owner of Star Moon was the owner of several joints in the now-closed Kalijodo area  (Mona Lisa, River Citra, etc). Many of the girls used to work there actually, which would indicate that contrary to what Ahok promised, they haven't been successfully rehabilitated.

Pegasus Spa (Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars →
Pegasus is a cheap massage parlour located in a hidden street of Glodok in North Jakarta. It is not far from Station Kota and therefore you can reach it easily by Transjakarta. The spa has a sauna, a jacuzzi, a cold pool and a hammam. All these facilities are free to use if you have a massage. The treatment in the standard room costs Rp100,000 and Rp130,000 in the VIP room (inclusive of a bathtub and a TV). There are no special services included in that price so if you want something more, you should negotiate directly with the girl. Pegasus has existed for at least 10 years but they renovated it in 2015. If you are not interested with sexual services, it is a good place to try.

Keukenhof Bistro (Kota Tua Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars →
Keukenhof Bistro is a café and restaurant located just steps away from Taman Fatahillah in North Jakarta. It is also next to Colosseum 1001 entertainment center. It is inside a Dutch era colonial building that seems to have been renovated very recently. Unfortunately, the inside of Keukenhof Bistro is not that impressive, particularly if you compare it with Café Batavia . They don't have windows to the outside and you don't really feel you are inside a historical building. 

Newtown Executive Club (Lokasari)

By Jakarta100bars →
Newtown is a new luxury "Executive Club" with a lounge and a karaoke. It is located in the red-light district of Lokasari, just next to Mille's . At the moment it is still quiet and the customers are almost all locals. There are many hostesses and girls companions hanging out in the lounge, where you have naked girl striptease in the evening.
