Good live music

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.

One of the preferred hang out places in Jakarta with lots of people watching opportunities. Music was vibrant but not as good as CJ perhaps due to slightly matured crowds.

This restaurant / nightclub is the best and trendiest place in Jakarta. The food is outstanding (especially the steaks!) and they always have a live band to entertain the crowd. I enjoy this place just to smoke a cigar, have a drink and listen to the band. I usually eat here once a week and have never had a bad... More
