expatriate information for Indonesia

Jakarta, like many other metropolitan areas in Asia, is in love with the game of pool. A great thing is that pool is popular with both expats and locals, so it is also be a great way to meet Indonesians. The most popular venues are equipped with the latest equipment and charge competitive prices (around Rp. 50,000 per hour). Most bars popular with expats have at least one or two tables to play on, for free. Just place your name on the chalkboard list.

Even though gambling is strictly prohibited in Indonesia, local people will often spice up the game by making bets. Be careful because Indonesians are really good at it.

Here is a list of some of the most popular venues for playing pool in Jakarta. You can click on the name of the pool place to see a review from Thibaud at Jakarta 100 Bars and get more details. Don't hesitate to send us the names of other billard venues if you think they should be listed here.
