Travel to Surabaya: Surabaya Bars

There are bars, restaurant bars, resto cafes, bar lounges etc but to be listed here there must be an actual bar where you can sit on a stool and have a beer!

Surabaya bars have generally simple themes with little 'glitz' - basic wooden tables and chairs set in unostentatious surroundings but that is not to say that they lack character.

See our live music venues for entertainment with your drinks and our karaoke pages if you like to sing-along.
