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. Until I review 108 Club, you can read my old review of Illigals: Illigals Hotel and Club is the new BIG one stop entertainment venue in Jakarta, and it replaces the old 1001 , which used to be one of North Jakarta's most crazy place (the "sashimi sex" night club in the book Jakarta Underground). To have it name Illigals is somehow a huge provocation and a sign that some people in Indonesia can do pretty much anything they want. I don't know who the owner of Illigals is, but I can imagine he is very well protected. The owner of 1001 also has Mille's and Millennium , that also have quite a reputation for being ecstasy factori

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.

Siera or Pujasera Nightclub (Mangga Besar)

By Jakarta100bars →
Jakarta nightlife still surprises me... The latest unexpected find was Siera which I had heard of before but never had the chance to visit... People also call it Pujasera, but I was unable to understand which name was the proper one... Siera is located on Jalan Mangga Besar, about 1 kilometer East of Jalan Hayam Wuruk. It is not too difficult to find but you should be attentive not to miss it. It looks like a Roman temple, with a colourful lighting. You have to pay about Rp20,000 to get in, and for this price you will get a small bottle of water. Inside is really crowded, until morning. The club is like a long corridor, maybe a 100 meters deep, with at least 500 people, maybe a 1000. If you were on the dancefloor at the end of the corridor and suddenly there was a fire, you'll have no chance to escape. It is very likely that 90% of the customers have taken drugs, and I would imagine that all girls in this place are working. As the price and facilities are quite cheap,

Exotis Diskotik Jakarta/ Dugem (Mangga Besar Raya)

By The Jakarta Team →
Dark, dirty place, with Techno Kota, plenty of drugs and lots of prostitutes. Open non-stop during the weekend. The staff and the other customers are generally friendly and happy to dance with foreigners. I give the rating 1/10 but if you are adventurous, you should visit it at least once.
