Karaokes and KTVs in Jakarta (Complete Guide)

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. Most 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.

  Nasty place... Emporium is a massage parlour with extra services. They have girls from Thailand, Uzbekistan, China working as prostitutes. The place was raided by the police in December 2008 - See article .  Update March 2011: I walked by Emporium the other day and I saw it was closed for renovation. Here are a few pictures, if anyone goes there when it opens again, please leave a comment.

F1 Executive Club / GP Lounge

By Jakarta100bars →
Small nightclub and karaoke in Pecenongan (North Jakarta) with a Formula 1 theme. They have live music or DJs, usually with progressive house. You can request a lady companion while you drink. There is no entrance fee and it's free to sit at a table. If you want a VIP sofa you must spend a minimum of 7,5M. They also have sexy dancers (topless) occasionally. Overall : It's a middle class venue for Indonesians so you can expect cheaper prices and average standards. The crowd is underground, including many clubbers on drugs. They organize Sunday parties in the afternoon from 1pm to 8pm. Similar to Mille's in Lokasari.

It is mostly famous for having one of Jakarta's most popular naughty luxury karaokes. It is similar with Malioboro , Sun City or Alexis .

B'Fashion Hotel, Spa, Karaoke & Oppai Club

By Jakarta100bars →
B'Fashion  Spa is a popular massage parlour with plus-plus and even plus-plus-plus, located behind Mall Taman Anggrek. It offers similar services as Orchardz spa . On three floors, you will find an executive club (Oppai, with sexy dancers and striptease), a spa and a karaoke. It is actually also a real hotel with actual guests. The Taman Anggrek area (Grogol) is not the best but if you are looking for a guest-friendly hotel in Jakarta, then you cannot do much better. It is also within reasonable distance from both the airport and the city center.

Nebula Club Jakarta (CLOSED)

By Jakarta100bars →
Nebula is the newest nightclub in Jakarta. It is opening on June 6th and it is owned by the Stadium group (which closed only 2 weeks ago). The group is also behind the bordellos Malioboro and King Cross , and the normal club  Exodus . I think Nebula will be a mix between both types, trying to catch the normal crowd, but also with a sexy side (dancers, karaoke, etc....). I won't be able to go to the opening as I am currently in Bali, but I'm pretty excited to visit it as soon as I will be back in Jakarta. On their facebook and twitter page, they advertise Nebula as the biggest nightclub in Jakarta. Please let me know your feedback if you visit it by email thibaud@jakarta100bars.com or by posting a comment on this post. Thanks!
