108 Club (Previously known as Illigals Hotel & Club)

By Jakarta100bars →
Update July 2018 : Illigals just changed its name to 108 The New Atmosphere . I haven't visited yet as I'm not in Indonesia at the moment. I will write about it around August/September. From what I've heard, it's pretty much the same as before. I think the change is only a way for Illigals to keep a lower profile. Contact details: Illigals Hotel & Club Jl.Hayam Wuruk no.108 Jakarta Barat, 111620

Culture Shock - Understanding Karaokes in Jakarta

By Jakarta100bars →
Karaoke and KTV bars in Jakarta are used for a multitude of purposes. Singing is one of them, but it is definitely not the only reason. Commonly, they are used for prostitution, drugs, private parties, striptease and sometimes orgies. As a foreigner, it took me several years to understand what was truly going on behind those doors. It is only after discussing with girls, clients and club owners, that I finally realized what karaokes were for and why Indonesians are so crazy about them.

Colosseum Club (1001 Hotel)

By Jakarta100bars →
Colosseum Club used to be called K7 and is now managed by the same group behind Alexis hotel and Emporium Spa. Colosseum is actually the relocation of 1001, which closed in 2012 and was replaced by Illigals...  I visited the club for the after-party of the State of Trance Tour. It is an excellent club in terms of design, lighting, sound. The crowd was rather upmarket and mixed (foreigners/Indonesians), most of them standing in groups around tables. The dancefloor is pretty small and people are not really mingling with each other. Music is generally house/EDM, with some famous DJs occasionally. The entrance fee is around IDR200,000.   Colosseum Club Jakarta (1001) Jl. Kunir No.7 Jakarta, Indonesia 11110 Phone number: 0822-7000-1001 Open on Friday and Saturday until 4am Instagram: http://instagram.com/colosseumjkt

Club 36, the bar of the Jayakarta Hotel, is a small club with a live band and a DJ. It is similar to Thai discos in Singapore, with girls from Thailand dancing on the bartop. You can invite them for drinks or offer them flower garlands. Club 36 is very crowded with the Chinese community. It's a good place to go even during the week because it is almost always packed. They also have karaoke rooms.
