Kowloon Nightclub Surabaya (C-Bar)

By Jakarta100bars →
Kowloon International Palace is a one-stop entertainment complex in Surabaya. It features C-bar (live music), Kowloon (nightclub) and a Chinese restaurant. They also do weddings and concerts in their function hall. It is located on the 5th floor of the mid-class mall Plaza Surabaya. The first time I went there, the taxi dropped me off at the lobby, but there is no lift so I had to walk through the parking to get there. Make sure you get dropped on the 5th floor.

Jimmy's (Marriott Hotel Surabaya)

By Jakarta100bars →
Jimmy's is the bar/nightclub that replaces Vertical Six in Marriott Hotel in Surabaya. It is more of a live music venue, similar with Colors Pub. I've never seen it completely packed but still, it is one of the most happening bars in town. You can expect to have between 50 and 100 pax every night, a mix of local residents, travelers and expats. There were quite a few girls as well who did not seem to be prostitutes. A few of them were drinking alone at the bar which is a bit suspicious though.

Club 360 - Renaissance Royal (Surabaya)

By Jakarta100bars →
Club 360 is part of the Renaissance Royal complex in Royal Plaza in Surabaya. It is next to the massage parlour Celsius and the KTV Rhythm. Everything belongs to the Top Ten Group, the owner of Coyote and Stasiun Disco . The club is not always very crowded. Most often, you only have a few groups of guys drinking with lady companions from the karaoke. If you come without a girl, you may have a GRO (Guest Relation Officer) coming to chat with you. Don't expect to find a normal girl in 360°, only a few are available.

Colors Pub (Surabaya)

By Jakarta100bars →
Colors Pub is one of the most famous bars/clubs in Surabaya. Centrally located on Jalan Surabaya (next to the Society Complex), it is part of the same group behind Eclectic and Our Bar. It is mostly a live music venue with a large performance stage and tables all around it. They are opened every day of the week, with the current schedule:

Club Foreplay (Surabaya)

By Jakarta100bars →
Despite its kinky name, Club Foreplay is a normal nightclub with a crowd of students and executives. It is actually one of the rare venues in Surabaya where you can meet girls who aren't freelancers or lady companions. It is located inside the popular mall Sutos (Surabaya Town Square), one of the favourite hang-out place for young Surabayans. After midnight, as the cafés become empty (among which Eclectic ), Foreplay gets more crowded. Foreplay is oddly L-shaped, with two massive pillars in the middle. For this reason, you cannot see everything at once inside, which is not usual. It feels more like a bar than a nightclub. The dance floor below the podium is also tiny as most of the space is occupied by tables. 

M-One Nightclub or M1 (Surabaya)

By Jakarta100bars →
M-One Superclub is one of the most happening nightclubs in Surabaya. It is particularly popular among the Indo-Chinese community and you may see a few expats there as well. There is a fair number of pretty girls but very few are coming alone. There is always several luxury sports cars parked in front of the club (Ferraris and Lamborghinis), but the club itself is not that sophisticated and expensive. It is medium-sized, with 2 floors. Upstairs is the VIP area with sofas from which you can see the dancefloor and the DJ. The lighting and sound system is modern.

Station Top 10 Nightclub (Surabaya)

By Jakarta100bars →
Station Top 10 is a nightclub located on the 6th floor of Tunjungan Plaza Mall in Surabaya. Also spelled "Stasiun", it belongs to the same group behind Top 10 Coyote Bar . Station is a middle class venue that most people visit to take drugs. You will normally be offered ecstasy as soon as you enter (price around Rp350,000 for one). The music is fast-paced techno that you won't be able to enjoy unless you are high. The place is quite dark and it has an underground feel. Very few foreigners visit it so you will be an attraction there. You have sexy dancers several times in the evening but they seem to keep their bras on at all time. Many freelance prostitutes available but it can be hard to see what they look like in the dark. Most girls will ask you for ecstasy which can be a bit annoying.

Coyote Club in Surabaya is one of the best party spots in the city. It is owned by the same group behind Ten Club and Karaoke and Stasiun Disco (both in Tunjungan Plaza) and Celsius Spa and 360 club (both in Royal Plaza).
