The UK’s King Edward VII was said to be a dour chap and I think he’d be very surprised to learn that a nightclub-cum-stripclub-cum-bordello had been named after him. Not directly named after him of course – the King Cross nightclub in Jakarta actually takes its name after a district in Sydney called Kings Cross, now ironically home to its fair share of hookers and gangster types, despite paying homage to the former UK king.
But, hey, whatever. The king is dead and it’s time to party.
King Cross offers a host of adult entertainment activities but is best known for its sexy dancers.
There's always one, ain't there?
Besides the spectacular stage shows, the girls will also entertain clients and get progressively “more raunchy” the more drinks you buy them (at Rp50k a pop).
On the third floor of King Cross a live band can usually be heard after 8pm. But if it’s relaxation you need then treat yourself to a massage on the second floor. Here, in so-called therapy rooms, you can get treated for any conditions that “affect your mind, body and spirit” and – best of all – come out with a wide smile on your face. Those in the know may wish to mention the magic word: combo. Now that really is fun!
