To have it name Illigals is somehow a huge provocation and a sign that some people in Indonesia can do pretty much anything they want. I don’t know who the owner of Illigals is, but I can imagine he is very well protected. The owner of 1001 also has Mille’s andMillennium, that also have quite a reputation for being ecstasy factories + giant prostitution centers.
The days after the opening at the end of 2010 were slow, but now things are starting to move: Happening parties are being organized every weekend and they are crowded.
First floor: Illigal has a night club, bar and lounge, not too big, and with no real dancefloor. People sit by groups in big sofas around tables.
Second floor: Karaoke rooms, restaurant and billiard, with local “Lady Companion” (LC) (another name for prostitutes actually).
Third floor: Karaoke rooms with “foreign LC”.
Fourth floor: Luxurious spa with huge swimming pool
Fifth floor: 100 hotel bedrooms
As you can see, the activities in Illigals are completely illegal in Indonesia, and nobody seems to worry about it. It’s funny to think that at the same time, Ariel from Peter Pan is in jail for porn outrage following its leaked sex tape.. How hypocritical!
There is no doubt Illigals will now compete with Alexis andMalioboro in becoming one of Jakarta’s hottest nightlife spots. They are planning to have sexy dancer shows and all that stuff, typical of night clubs in North Jakarta. If you go there, please comment or send me an update.
