Batam Island Nightlife

Where to Go after Dark in Batam Island

Nagoya is the nightlife entertainment district in Batam. There are several things to do; you can start your evening at the outdoor food hall called Santai (meaning 'relaxing' in Indonesian) then simply set off to one of many karaoke bars near Lucky Plaza. If you are a real sports buff, there are several Irish pubs broadcasting live football matches or Formula One on a big screen.

You may try the eclectic nightclubs before heading back for a good night's sleep. An added bonus for being a duty zone, you can get Heineken and other imported beers for nearly the same price as Bintang. And although you might find the nightlife scene in Batam different from what you are used to back home, it is worth experiencing.

There are literally hundreds of karaoke bars located in almost every direction of Nagoya. It is very popular with Chinese and Singaporean, so most of the songs are in Chinese with some well-known English songs. Beside a large karaoke hall, many of them also provide private rooms for a group of three-to-eight people or more, an option to avoid bad singers in the open lounge who seem to think they are competing on Pop Idol. Below is the list to sample:

Merlion Hotel
Location: Sriwijaya Road, Nagoya

Kompleks Cipta Utam
Location: Near Center Point shopping centre, Nagoya

Permata Indah
Location: Windsor Central, Nagoya

Barong Karaoke
Location: Puri Garden Hotel


Nightclubs or discotheques here usually play alternate between techno music and some up-to-date pop. Some places also have live bands, playing English, Indonesian, Chinese, and Singaporean songs. The nightclubs here open from 19:00 onwards and all get busy around midnight and run until 05:00. No strict dress-code although flip-flops are not allowed for clubbers’ own safety. Below is the list of some famous clubs for all party animals:

Ice Pub
Location: near Mandarin Regency Hotel, Kodya

Jungle Diskotik
Location: Komp. Batam Plaza

Ozon Discotheque
Location: Bromo Komp, Baloi Indah

Planet Ozon Discotheque
Location: Raja Ali Haji Road
