By Jakarta100bars →
You shouldn't expect much from Muscat nightlife. There are very few bars, even fewer nightclubs, and you won't find a party atmosphere like in Dubai . That said, if you are living in the city, or if you are visiting for a few days, you can always find some decent venues to have fun, to meet people, and to drink alcohol. Just scroll down to learn more about the best party spots in the capital of Oman.

Baku Nightlife: 20 Best Bars and Nightclubs (2020) - Azerbaijan

By Jakarta100bars →
I spent 2 days in Baku during the Formula 1 Grand Prix in 2018. I partied on two evenings and, even though I probably only scratched the surface of the nightlife, I'm writing this short guide about the best bars and nightclubs I have been to. If you don't have the time to read my whole review, here is a short summary: - Best elite bar:  Pasifico Baku - Best bar: Madrid Bar - Best nightclub:  Enerji Baku - Best live music/alternative expat crowd: Le Chateau - Best expat bars: Go to  Abdulkarim Alizada street or  Tarlan Abdullayev street. - Best hotels to stay near the nightlife: Choose a location  near Fountain Square  such as  Hilton Baku  ( 200$/night),  Park Inn By Radisson  ( 130$/night),  Karat Inn Hotel  (60$/night) or Austin Boutique Hotel (55$/night). Note: I last updated this review on 12th August 2019. Baku Nightlife From what I've seen, Baku nightlife is not very interesting for a single guy. The main problem is that middle-class Azeri

Abu Dhabi Nightlife: Best Bars and Clubs (2020)

By Jakarta100bars →
With 1,8M inhabitants, Abu Dhabi is the second-most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after Dubai . Even though the country is officially Islamic, it has a decent nightlife that caters mostly to expats, tourists, and businessmen. There are around 10 lively bars and nightclubs, almost all of which are located in 4- or 5-star hotels. You can find a crowded event most days of the week, except during Ramadan when everything is closed. That said, not everything is perfect. The main problem is that very few women go clubbing in Abu Dhabi, so it is not rare to have a bar full of guys (minus the prostitutes). To avoid that, select your venues carefully and keep an eye out for ladies nights. Another issue is that prices are generally quite high. A cocktail in a high-end bar will easily reach US$20, and a beer US$10. To order bottle service, be ready to spend at least US$500 for one bottle. It is a good idea to check for happy hours, usually from 5PM to 8PM. If you want

This article was last updated on September 14th, 2019. I removed X2, Immigrant, Empirica, and Level II (Foundry 8) that have closed down and added Boca Rica, Loewy, Beer Hall, and Eastern Promise. Going to nightclubs or bars is one of the best ways to meet Indonesian girls. It is a bit more challenging than  online dating  because you need to know what are the best venues and the best days to be successful. You must also be careful to differentiate between the "normal" girls, the prostitutes, and the professional girlfriends ( sugar babies ). The latter category are all the ladies who make a living from having one or several boyfriends. Depending on what you are looking for, they can be either a great target or something to avoid.

10 Best Nightclubs and Bars to Meet Girls in Bali (2020)

By Jakarta100bars →
Bali is a fantastic destination for single guys who want to meet girls. As soon as you'll arrive, you can download some popular dating apps and you'll be surprised by the high number of matches you will get. To be fair, there are also many prostitutes - especially on specific websites like SeekingArrangement - so be aware of it. Another great way to meet girls in Bali is to visit bars and nightclubs, especially if you are staying around Kuta, Seminyak and Ubud. I wrote extensively about the nightlife in those areas, most recently two weeks ago with my guide:  Where to Party in Bali? In the following article, I will focus on the most recommended spots to meet girls. I've made sure to mention a diversity of venues so you are certain to find exactly what you are looking for - be it a rich student from Jakarta or a 200-pound Australian tourist (nothing wrong with that).

Vientiane Nightlife: Top 20 Nightclubs and Bars (Updated)

By Jakarta100bars →
I stayed a week in the capital of Laos, Vientiane, to explore its nightlife. In this review, I will give you some tips about the best nightclubs, the best bars, where to stay near the nightlife and how to meet Laotian girls. If you expect Vientiane to be a boring town, you are only partially right. After night falls, it isn't long before all shops and restaurants close, and by 10PM most streets are desperately deserted. At this time, even finding street food can be challenging. If you go to the right places though, you'll discover some much more happening areas. As I realized, you can party every night in Vientiane until at least 3AM, well past the official midnight curfew.
