Bumping tunes, strobing lights, it couldn’t get any more straightforward than this. On hiatus for a bit due to the pandemic, the award-winning nightclub Colosseum Club has now returned in full swing. With an expansive layout and eye-catching lighting fixtures, it’s easy to get hooked into the mood and lose yourself in the crowd to the sound of EDM and popular hits. Often hosting world class DJ’s like Steve Aoki, Dash Berlin and Giuseppe Ottaviani, don’t forget to check out who’s going to be in the DJ booth before coming!

2. HUSH!

Unlike the first two, both of which having been established a while ago, HUSH! is a newcomer in the scene. But that only means you can be assured that it can provide a fresh take to partying in Jakarta, especially when you take into consideration the people behind its founding: Jakarta Uncensored, a group of content creators and party curators that are well-recognised in the city.

The club capitalised its great location with a well-curated lineup of local and international DJ to perform at its venue, guaranteeing a great night for dancing. It doesn’t hurt that Valhalla is also so attractively designed—both inside and out!

In the early 2000s, Embassy was a household name in the nightlife scene of Jakarta. It unfortunately had to close when Taman Ria Senayan was bulldozed in 2009. More than a decade later in 2021, Embassy reopened its doors in the up-and-coming lifestyle centre, ÉLYSÉE SCBD. Its reputation has remained intact after all these years, and old local and foreign regulars quickly returned, mingling alongside new party-goers.

Best Clubs in Jakarta For Drinking & Socialising

For the past few years, concept bar and mini nightclub ZODIAC has been a magnet for the nightlife scene of South Jakarta. One way of describing the interior is that it’s campy (leopard prints mesh with bright red walls) and compact. But they’ve made it work in their favour, and there’s not a night goes by where the place isn’t brimming with the city’s 20-somethings living it up to the tunes of the DJ.

Opening hours:
Monday: 7PM–2AM
Tuesday-Wednesday: 7PM–1.30AM
Thursday-Saturday: 7PM–3AM

8.Duck Down Bar

A bar in name but a nightclub in practice, Duck Down Bar’s all-american themed interior has been host to numerous bumping parties. Selections of tunes lean towards the nostalgic, ranging from AC/DC to Britney Spears. It’s a good recipe for a lively crowd, it appears, as people rekindle sweet memories from the past and bond instantly with the people next to them.

9. Ding Dong Disko

A restaurant during the day, Ding Dong Disco gets down to ’70s musical mainstays during the night. And it doesn’t only apply to the DJ booth, from interior to cocktails on offer, various elements of this club are crafted with the mid-century space age era in mind. This creative direction has continued to attract the city’s creatives and youths over the past few years, piqued by an era before their own.

10. Leon Goldstein

A laidback bistro and bespoke coffee shop by day, Leon Goldstein turns it up a notch once the night descends, with the restaurant area turning into a lively dance floor once the DJ takes up their spot at the booth. And don’t skip on the cocktail bar, as it comes well-stocked with artisanal options!

Half-hidden in a semi basement, Bebop is the latest newcomer on this list, and yet it has quickly garnered a following among the city crowd. Hinted in the name, the Japanese-style jazz club takes inspiration from “Cowboy Bebop”. Easter eggs from the anime are scattered throughout the club, but it doesn’t restrict itself to that. The music community of the city gets centre stage here, so expect fresh faces and creative takes on the craft coming from the DJ booth.

If Bebop Jakarta is brimmed with a youthful and contemporary energy, then Motion Blue thrives in its classical jazz club set up. Set inside the third floor of Fairmont Jakarta, the club couples a refined dining experience with excellent entertainment, which can be attributed to its collaboration with the renowned jazz club Blue Note in Tokyo, bringing over numerous promising talents from the global jazz scene.

Frequently Asked Questions about Jakarta Nightclubs

Is there an entrance fee to nightclubs in Jakarta?

It differs with each one, but those that do usually charge highly. It’s also worth noting that drinks in the country are priced highly due to taxes. So be sure to look up information about the clubs you’re interested in before planning a visit to make sure you don’t end up spending your entire budget in one night.
