I never knew this existed as it’s hidden away in one part of the hotel basement like a cave or something. Quaint decor and a nice place to hang out in the evenings after work is done. Very relaxing ambiance. They have a snooker table where one can drink socialise and play.

Still Fun with Some Class Despite Imperfections
There's legitimate fun at B.A.T.S: yes, the ladies are 90+% 'working girls' and many STRANGELY get free entry while other folks must pay the cover charge... not good, but this worldwide, sordid practice hasn't changed in many centuries; yes, some bartenders & waitresses favor customers who are friends or big spenders while providing lousy service to other patrons... again, not good, but such selfish politics is not unique to B.A.T.S. or Indonesia; yes, alcohol is expensive... it's a 5-star hotel with good security and ambience/dress standards - expensive liquor follows, as it does in every similar place on earth. There's plenty of room for decent customers AND legit ladies to enjoy drink, music, and dancing, so gently overlook the obvious flaws and have some fun in a safe, welcoming atmosphere.

It's a professionally run bar with very good to excellent international bands Mon-Sat and a local band on Sun night. Always good fun. The drinks are way too expensive though.
