Others nightlife


Theatres and nightclubs are especially frequented by tourists – the most visited watering holes in Kalimantan include the Perosea Bar, Sid’s Bar and Joy’s Bar in Balikpapan – all of which are located in close proximity to each other. Alternatively you can stop over at Martha’s Bar which is just a few minutes up the road or the Batakan Café close at hand to the beach. Jack’s Place – the oldest bistro in Balikpapan – is a resto-bar that serves up Indonesian specialties as well as Mexican, Cajun and southern U.S. comfort food especially for the expatriate community.

Karaoke is a popular after-dark activity in Kalimantan – there are plenty of sing-along joints scattered across its landscape. Meanwhile, live music is featured in most drinking holes especially hotel-run ventures. Visit the Luai Lounge at Benacutai. Prices for drinks in Kalimantan won’t really break the bank – but it’s important to keep in mind that pints and cocktails at hotels are obviously going to come with over-the-top price tags. The Borneo Bar at Le Grandeur Hotel is a fine example of this – however although drinks are pricey, the ambiance is excellent.
