Best Pick Up Bars & Clubs To Meet Girls In Jakarta
This post will tell you about some of the best pick up bars and nightclubs to meet girls in Jakarta for foreign men. Many people have the complete wrong impression about Indonesia.
They think just because it is a Muslim country there is no nightlife, no alcohol, no prostitution, and all of the girls are going to be virgins until marriage. If you have read our Jakarta sex guide you know that is not anywhere close to true.
Most Indonesian girls are very conservative, the vast majority of them have zero interest in casual sex or even going to a disco. But this is a massive city, one of the biggest on the planet.
It doesn’t take a high percentage of girls to be different from the norm for there to be plenty of fun to be had. At the best nightclubs to meet girls in Jakarta there will be plenty of them out that are looking to hook up and often hook up with foreign men.
There really aren’t all that many tourists here, and the locals call tourists ‘bule.’ As is the case in most Asian countries people here are obsessed with white skin, if you are white you are going to get stares from all directions.
But if you are a tourist from anywhere else and speak English you will stand out for the right reasons. While foreign men won’t have a chance with 95% (or more) of the girls in Jakarta the odds are still drastically in your favor.
We are going to break this city down into North, Central, and South and mention some great pick up bars and clubs to visit in each. We will also mention some bars to go to if you want to pick up freelance prostitutes, but there could be prostitutes at any nightclub in this city.
That is just how things are in poor countries, so you never can be fully sure if a girl wants money or not. Luckily this phenomenon is not near as bad in Indonesia as it is in the Philippines.
Lastly we will tell you about the best online dating site in Indonesia. That way you can meet these women who are interested in foreign men without going out in the nightlife, or find some dates to bring out with you.
The Nightlife In Kuta North Jakarta
We are starting with North Jakarta even though most people will tell you that it should be avoided. It is the more dangerous area of the city and you will see open drug use at many of the clubs, mostly ecstasy or meth.
You also need to be careful of choosing the wrong taxi, and even the police are known to stop foreign men (or rich locals) in this area to give them an undeserved ‘fine’ of some kind. This is the area of town where you find most of the sex clubs as well.
But since most foreign men don’t venture out to the nightclubs here girls might be easier to pick up. If you are the only bule or one of only a few in a club with 500 girls you have to like your chances.
Colosseum is probably the most famous club in this area, but you could also head to Illigals or Newtown. There are lots of places to party up north in Kota actually, it is up to you if you want to risk checking them out.
Central Jakarta Nightclubs
You probably want to try and stay in the central area on your trip. Getting a room here off AirBnb is the best way to go. The traffic in this city is brutal and you want to make sure you aren’t too far away from anywhere you are going to visit. Somewhere around Plaza Indonesia would be wise.
You don’t need to worry about safety, cops, or drug use as much in this part of town. In central some of the best singles bars and nightclubs to meet Jakarta girls are:
Both Skye and Cloud are rooftop bars that are more like lounges, not really nightclubs. They are still good places to pick up though.
Dragonfly and X2 are spots where you might find some prostitutes or semi pros. They aren’t full on prostitute pick up bars (we will get to those soon) but they do bring some in.
In fact any bar or club in the central or southern regions might bring in prostitutes. They know this is where the tourists go to party and they want to get some of that cash.
You don’t need to assume they all are, but if you are getting the feeling she wants money then she probably does. This is common in many places when foreign me try to pick up Southeast Asian girls.
Expat & Tourist Pick Up Bars In The South
South and central are pretty much the same, often times people don’t differentiate between the two. Safety isn’t as big of an issue and there will be more tourists or expats around, but still not that many.
Also, more Jakarta girls who are interested in foreign men either to have fun or get their money. Some of the best singles bars and clubs in the south are:
- Kemang Arcade
If you are taking our advice and getting a room near Plaza Indonesia it won’t take to long to travel to this area. During the day it will, but after 9pm you should be fine.
Freelance Prostitute Bars
The Jakarta sex clubs are probably the best way to find hookers, but some guys would rather pick up a freelance prostitute at a bar. There are a few main places you can go for that.
The first is Blok M, but it is only mentioned first because everyone else mentions it first. In truth you are very likely to be let down here, most of the prostitutes are older women and not very attractive.
Since they are freelancers we can’t put an exact number on the price, but again it will be more then at a sex club. All of these hooker pick up bars are in south or central.
Meeting Indonesian Girls Seeking Foreign Men Online
There are some downfalls to the nightlife here, alcohol is taxed a lot and quite expensive. The northern Kota clubs are pretty sketchy, and in central or south you never really know if a girl is a hooker or not.
Plus this is a big city and you may have to travel pretty far to venue change, and some guys don’t even like nightlife either. That is why for foreign men meeting girls on Indonesian Cupid is so great.
There are thousands and thousands of them on the site, and even if only a few percent are interested in tourists the ones who are will be very interested. Often times they have never met one before.
You will have zero problems getting dates, you can invite them to a nice dinner near your place, out in the nightlife, or just straight to your room for dinner and a movie. Just because most of the population is conservative doesn’t mean they all are, and the ones who aren’t can be quite aggressive about hooking up.
Indonesian Cupid is a great resource that will save you time and money. Hop on a week before you visit to start to pipeline, you will show up with so many numbers and wish you had more time to see them all.
Good luck visiting the best nightclubs for foreign men to meet girls in Jakarta. If you have good club game you will do quite well here.
