I love Bandung

English Bahasa Indonesia


Travellers to Bandung who want some live music action in the evenings won't be disappointed but there are more bands in Bandung looking for venues in which to play than venues available.

Travel to Bandung and enjoy an evening with Live Music

The hotels tend to have quieter and smaller bands playing soft music whereas the bars go for much louder sounds with typically 8 piece bands of three singers and five musicians.

Bar bands play all the 'hit' songs and mix modern with 'oldies'. Some individual musicians and singers are excellent performers with real talent.

Typically, bands will welcome song requests and customers will be invited to sing along with the band with sometimes astonishingly good voices, at other times .....

If you like to sing while you read the lyrics see our karaoke section.

Perhaps the oldest established bar in Bandung. Draught beer, cocktails and alcohol. Dutch inspired food menu with Indonesian food too. Live music on Fridays from 10.00 pm but the bands are not generally as good as those in Roempoet (next door) or Escobar (further down the road). Opened originally as a bar principally for expats during the IPTN period but now the customer base is mixed between locals and foreigners.
