Hey guys, I am not looking for the places that Bules hang out. I am looking for the places that Indonesians hang out and have a good time. I much prefer the culture and company of Indonesians so places like hard rock cafe are not on my list. I will definately give Retro a try though and CJ's. Havent been to either one yet. Where is Retro and which are the best nights to rock?? CJ,s is in Hotel Mulia right??
Ciao

the problem is that the vast majority of "real" indonesians don't hang out in drinking places anyway. relatively speaking, it's not really a drinking or party culture.

I appreciate what your saying and it makes alot of sense. However, when I am out I see thousands of young Indonesians all having a good time, dancing, laughing and yes, sometimes drinking. Is that so wrong? I guess it can be if you are strictly traditional but dont traditions change with the times? OK, point taken and understood.

well, i guess my point is that there are 230 million indonesians, of whom "only" 16 million live within the catchment of the jakarta megatropolis.

Keeping in mind that over 70% of indonesia's wealth is concentrated in jakarta, this would indicate that jakartans are probably not entirely representative of "typical" indonesians.

of these jakartans, only a very small percentage -- including many chinese -- would be part of the disco-party-drinking scene.

nonetheless, a "very small percentage" of 16 million people would still be a lot! plenty enough for a party! my only point is, they could not really be called "typical" indonesians, if in fact there is such a thing.

Retro is sucks...! (i like former Retro environment around 2000 - 2003 before renovation)
CJ's is boring (little bit fun) many oldman on the bars table, prostitute at the back side, hunter on the left side of the stage & school/university girl on the right side of the stage. the band sometime they are dancing like a clown :-D
i let you to choose steve which part you like wink

Dear Beth, a little more help please. Vertigo? Can you tell me where that is atleast enough so a taxi driver will be able to easily find it and I am guessing the best nights are Fri/Sat? What time does it start to buzz?? Hey, thanks for the pointer.

Vertigo is in Plaza Semanggi (Jl. Gatot Subroto) 17th floor and yes..the best night is weekend...11pm starts to picking up...so maybe you can start your night enjoy Japanese food in Charcoal Resto on 16th floor or have a drink in Red Square first or shopping or whatever.
Enjoy smile
