"The best nightlife is chatting..." Jakarta Nightlife Tip by Aang

Jakarta Nightlife: 63 reviews and 44 photos


The best nightlife is chatting with the locals in their houses, or in the street, in the kampung.

NIGHTLIFE is relaxed.
Try 1.the Sportsman's bar in Blok M
or 2. BATS at the Shangri La.
Be aware that 1. Tanamur Disco seems to have few fire exits
and 2. Mobs occasionally burn down places of entertainment.
3. Visitors to one very seedy Blok M bar were kidnapped in a taxi and later found in a river.
Sportsman's is typical of the expat bar. BATS is plush and has good food and live music. There are lots of discos and bars of every type. AIDS is a major problem.

Dress Code: None

Directions: See falk map. Ask taxi driver.
