Great place

Typical Shangri La, service service and some more service... They really turn it on here and we had a great night. The food is excellent, the band was great and the atmosphere was excellent as well. Really enjoyed myself.

BATS (Basement at the Shangri La) still rates as a great night spot with a reasonable restaurant, bar, and a small dancing area. There is live music and on the night we were there the band was OK. Also disco in between sessions was good. The restaurant has a reasonably varied menu and was not excessively priced. Not quite so... More

We were hunting for good live entertainment and decided to check this place out. Entertaining but not great, could do a bit more showmanship. Service was prompt and the place could get a bit stuffy when crowded. We decided to leave after 2 rounds of drinks...

This is a fun lively bar with a great live band from USA. I was impressed with their lineup. Very good singers indeed and a nice varied repertoire. Not a place for couples but good for businessmen or people wanting to have a beer or cocktail after dinner

I went for dinner there twice. Good live music, perhaps every day? Quite a lively crowd, that gets significantly livelier as the night goes on. Food ample, but not very healthy... couple of beers on tap.

I stayed at the Shangri La, so figured I needed to check this place out based on all that I had read on it. It was great and I even had dinner there one night. The atmosphere and service are great and the food is pretty good as well. I also did not observe any of the issues reported by... More

I called "the best beer in town" they serve bintang and Heineken Draught, the neck of the Draught machine is frozen, really frozen beer with very nice hospitality. The pizza (thin) was also good. But in Friday I was very surprise if you can get table. During happy hour (17.00 until 21.00) there is a discount

For my taste too many western people in the club. But ok, most hotel guest were western. Sound was great, drinks as well but quite expensive for Jakarta. Grand Hyatt was cheaper.

Food is barely OK. Wagoo beef tasted fatty and is overrated and expensive. Bar tenders are fantastic, however they somehow get away with the Jakarta law banning smoking in public areas made in Feb 25 2011. The dense cigarette smok makes eating unenjoyable.
