Malibu Café & KTV (Makassar Mulia Hotel)

By Tibs →
Malibu Café and Karaoke in Makassar is a club in Makassar. It is located in Jalan Nusantara, a street where I counted at least 20 prostitute bars, on the 5th floor of a seedy hotel ( Makassar Mulia ). Inside the club is actually not as bad as I expected. It is not particularly luxurious, but it is decent with proper sound and lighting. There are some girls, obviously lady companions for the karaoke, but they are not too pushy with clients. You can refuse politely their advances and they will leave you alone with your beer. You have a main stage with a live band, replaced by a DJ during breaks. The music is western (no dangdut, no funky house) so it is quite enjoyable. You also have dancers wearing bikinis/bras.

Gravity Sky Lounge and Bar (Makassar)

Gravity Lounge in Makassar is probably the best rooftop bar in the city. It is on the 20th floor of the Swiss-Belhotel , a 4-star hotel that I recommend for nightlife lovers as it is also next to Zona Café .

Barcode Bar & Kitchen (Makassar)

By Tibs →
Barcode is one of the happening bars/beer houses in Makassar. It is located walking distance from Singgasana Hotel and Aston Makassar (both of which are near My Place Spa ++). It is a recommended venue to hang out, but probably better if you are with a group of friends. Most of the space is occupied by sofas and tables, with a large bar on the side. They have regular events, including live music (rock, pop, top 40) or DJs (EDM). You can check their updated schedule on their Instagram page below. You can also watch sports and play electronic darts.

Zona Café - Nighclub - Makassar

By Tibs →
Zona is one of the most famous nightclubs in Makassar. It is located on the seafront next to Swiss-Belhotel (Rp500,000/night) and walking distance from the city's top attractions like Fort Rotterdam and Losari Beach (and also the red-light district on Jalan Nusantara). Two more recommended guest-friendly hotels nearby are the Aston (Rp600,000/night) or Whiz Prime (Rp250,000/night). Zona Café is surprisingly quite modern even though it was opened 7 years ago already. It features giant LCD screens, a laser show, a good sound system and even some pyro. It is not so big (maybe 400 people capacity) with 2 VIP sofa space at the entrance and on the side. I like that their bar is in the middle of the room so even if you are alone you can still chat with some other people.
