Excellent place for men. The band is great. And the drinks are not bad. BUT this is not your average bar/restaurant. And definitely not suitable for women to have drinks by themselves. I was there for business and had drinks with my business partner. And we saw- many business dealings happening - the number of women was more than 3... More

I was waiting to head to the airport and since BATS was closed the night I arrived I thought I would take a look right after opening at five. I found a very friendly staff setting the place up along with the live music for the evening. I got a good cold happy hour beer. I will give it a... More

This place used to have foreign band playing hits from 90s to current top 40s, but as years pass by, they now only have local band with mediocre vocals. This place might be fun for 'bule' (foreigners) but definitely becoming irritating for local especially women who come here just to have fun or drinks with friends, and not to 'targeting'... More

Visited this bar on a couple of occasions whilst I was in Jakarta on a business trip. It was conveniently located in the basement of the hotel that I usually stay in - the ShangriLa. If you are staying at the Shangri-La, there is no entrance charge. There is a very long happy hour at this bar, though I can't... More

I was staying at the Shagri-La and came to know of their night club. With time to kill in the night, sauntered in. A lot of couples as well as single ladies (willing to be picked up) were dancing around. An amateur (but great) band was performing at a small stage and the music was good. Had a couple of... More

I was amused to read the previous review saying "A Reliable Hotel Bar". It is actually. Saturday night led us to BATS around 11pm. Together with the wedding stepping downstairs from the ballroom, the place was packed. The atmosphere was great, music went along and the band had an easy evening as everybody was moving. I ruined my shoes while... More

I stayed at Shangri La Jarkata about 30-40 nights per year but I've been to BATS about 5-6 times over the last 5 years (BATS is inside Shangri La Hotel). It's has great food and good relaxing place before the nightlife start about 9ish-then it get wild. Lots of expat and girls (prostitute) if you are into that stuff. The... More

A good standby if you want a place in which to socialize without having to deal with the traffic of Jakarta. BATS fills up so it's obviously popular, and happy hour is helpful on the wallet. The air is not great given that it's a basement bar with smoking in the enclosed space, and the restrooms could certainly use improved... More

Was last week in BATS and really enjoyed that band and the atmosphere there. I was there with my Indonesian girlfriend and we really enjoyed drinking and dancing there. The band there was very good and played all the right songs. Will be back there for sure when back in Jakarta
