Embassy Night Club
by: Dina Indrasafitri

Since the place burned down last year due to an accident and was rebuilt soon after, I haven’t been to the Embassy Club in Senayan. I was hoping that this comeback visit won’t be a letdown, and it certainly wasn’t.

Even from the outside, it was clear that this club is not fooling around with its mission to bring out the wild side in everyone. The exteriors are impressively decorated in playful ribbons of sheet metal, biasing colors into the night. The entrance is still the same, an upward sloping path with rails reminiscent of a fast food queuing system.

Embassy is fairly generous in terms of spaciousness. Aside from the ultra-packed nights, you could move around freely without too much trouble. You could also order one of the tables in the edge of the room. The comfy sofas and white curtains make it a perfect place to crash down to after an exhausting session on the dance floor.  These ‘private’ areas are not really secluded but they do stretch quite far to the back, so it’s decent enough.
 
The crowd coming to the Embassy is mixed, from younger crowds to 25+ clubgoers, Indonesians and a few expats too. Dressing style is also very varied.  But the good thing is nobody seems to mind and the result is a happy party mixture through the night. The sound system and lighting is quite impressive but it would be better if you order plain liquor (non-cocktail drinks) because sometimes there’s so many people ordering drinks that the mixture could turn out to be a little off.

Embassy on itself plays varied kind of music from electro-house to trance, and even a little bit of R 'n B when the night gets even later. Thus, it is rather hard to describe the main type of music going on inside. The situation gets even more complicated when an event organizer is running the night, so it’s a good idea to find out what kind of event is being held the night you’re planning to go in order to get a better picture of what music is going to be played and who’s going to be there.

On the upper is the Balcony lounge playing chill house music, this is a section that is slightly more exclusive than the embassy itself. Comfy couches and exclusive furnitures along with a view of the city become the highlight of the Balcony. Meanwhile, thumping away beneath the Embassy isthe Wonder Bar, a slightly smaller club usually blaring out ‘harder’ rhythms such as progressive trance music. The crowd down there is a bit more wilder and packed. Spoken bluntly, you could say that the whole Wonder Bar-Embassy-Balcony is a little like your career move, it gets more exclusive the higher you climb.

No doubt that this club is rising wonderfully after it’s accident and if this is the Embassy then music must be its ambassador. Hail to that.
