Millenium is a huge nightclub, with a dancefloor the size of a football field. Packed with Chinese, even during the week, you rarely see expats inside. The problem is the loud music played, which consists of hard house remixes of famous tunes (listen to an example here). I call it "happy house", "Funky house", or "Techno Kota". I don't think spending more than 30 minutes inside is bearable for a foreigner.

Fortunately, the club is following the same trend than most clubs in Kota by opening a small lounge with western electro, house and progressive music. Very good but not famous yet, expats are welcome there and I hope it will encourage them to go party in Kota. The next photo was taken inside the new lounge, and as you can see it is very very dark...


It is one of the oldest and most popular one-stop entertainment nightclub in Jakarta. The sound system used to be the loudest in Asia, it's probably still true. It really is a socio-cultural experiment to go to this place so you shouldn't miss the opportunity.. Lots of Chinese clients, almost all of them on drugs and with a prostitute.

It isn't so dodgy nor dangerous, so don't be afraid to try it. Same owner as 1001, Mille's and Hotel Batavia.
