CLUB IT!

A Guide to Jakarta’s Nightlife

Wednesday, 11 Sep 2013

Jakarta’s nightlife offers something for everyone, no matter your preference of music, décor, crowd, or entertainment – and you thought Disney Land is “where dreams come true!” Here’s our take on clubbing in the Big Durian.

R&B
Blowfish is best known for their great R&B music, events, and alluring avant-garde Japanese décor. Come a little earlier and enjoy modern Japanese cuisine for dinner before you start on the cocktails! Their strict dress code ensures a great looking crowd, so ladies – strap on those new stilettos, and gentlemen – make sure you slip into something with a collar.
Blowfish, City Plaza at Wisma Mulia, Jl. Jend Gatot Subroto 42, Jakarta, p. +62 21 5297 1234, Open Mon-Thu 1130am-230pm & 630-1030pm, Fri-Sat 630pm-2am.

Domain
If you’re feeling like a jeans-and-sneakers or tank top-and-flats kind of night but still want to get your Dougie on, then head to Domain! Conveniently located in the basement of one of Jakarta’s best malls, you can do your shopping, have your dinner, and tear it up, all without having to white-knuckle it through any of Jakarta’s traffic!
Domain, Senayan City B2 Fl, Jl Asia Afrika Kav.19 Jakarta, p. +62 21 7278 1641, Open Mon-Sun 6pm-3am.

House
City beats with a city view! Immigrant’s floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the very busy fountain at Bundaran HI right in the heart of Jakarta. The cars and commotion are much more fun to watch with a G&T in your hand. Enjoy a quiet dinner and drinks here on any weekday, or stop by on the weekends and rub shoulders with Jakarta’s best on the packed dance floor!
Immigrant, Plaza Indonesia 6th Floor No.E02-03, Jl. M. H. Thamrin Kav. 28-30 Jakarta Pusat, p. +62 21 3983 8257, Open Sun-Tue 10am-11pm Wed-Sat 10-4am.

Dragonfly
If you like music that you can’t help but dance to, and a slightly more mature and sophisticated crowd, Dragonfly is for you. With a unique fit-out of a high-ceiling, different steps, levels, ramps, long high-tables that zig-zag through the dance floor, and sofas that circle around tables, this is a place to mingle the night away.
Dragonfly, Graha BIP, Jl Jend Gatot Subroto Kav 23, Jakarta, p. +62 21 5206789, Open Wed & Fri-Sat 6pm-4am.

This and That
Fairgrounds, situated in one of Jakarta’s busiest business districts, is a nocturnal playground you’ll love. Have dinner at Potato Head Garage, then head upstairs for pre-party-cocktails at Lucy In The Sky. When you’re ready, two-step over to Fable and enjoy a different party every night with Throwback Thursdays, Groovin’ House Fridays, and Poppin’ Mash-up Saturdays.
Fairgrounds, Lot 14 SCBD Jl. Jend Sudirman Kav 52-53. Senayan, Kebayoran Baru, Jakarta Selatan,  Open Mon-Sun 11am-3am.
