Description: The idea to establish Loewy was a spontaneous one: that there is a need in Jakarta for a casual bistro – an everyday place with an interesting but accessible menu, a well-designed but informal décor, and adding to the mix: a buzzing, energetic bar serving the best, stiffest drinks in town.The inspiration came from traditional Parisian bistros by way of New York City. The style of the interior is retro/classic with a modern interpretation. The original Thonet chairs, the leather banquet seats, the subway beveled tiles, the tin and copper ceiling panels, the white brick walls; evoking this “Paris bistro meets New York loft in the 1940’s feel. It is then combined with a modern layout and concept, creating an overall ambience that is uncluttered, clean, understated, and timeless.

Relax and just relax. Very nice and I will always come back.

“Nice... but still don't see the attraction”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Loewy's is a generally nice bar that stereotypically doesn't look like it belongs in jakarta. It hosts an international crowd. Drinks are not particularly cheap but in the acceptable (indonesian) range.

“Best waffle in Jakarta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

This place is very nice to hang out after office hour and also on the weekend.. Lots of foreigners and makes the ambiance like we are not in Jakarta! Their Belgian waffle is very delicious, moist and fluffy!
If you come on tea time on Saturday Sunday you will get a free tea or coffee if you order dessert... Means good value!
Their cocktails are also nice.. Not like other cafe which usually put less amount of alcohol to reduce the price..

“Great place, real brasserie!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

I like Loewy's and would eat there much more often if it weren't for the bad traffic. I really wish they would open a second one in the Senopati area!

The food is great, their grilled Tenderloin with French Fries and Sauce Bearnaise the stuff of legends. They have a fully stocked bar and know how to mix a mean cocktail for the alcohol indulging ones. Basically, none of the dishes on the menue suck, this is hands down a really professional operation. My favourites beside the steak: The sizzling cheese fondue, the salmon and the desserts. But according to Indonesians, who will of course know best, the Indo fare is equally as delectable. Service is quick, friendly and very professional.

The ambiance is nice as well. If you wish to sit in the comfy booths, make sure to get a reservation, as this place is usually packed. Which is a good sign, I guess, but can spoil the fun if you have to hang out indefinitely at the bar while waiting for a table. Lots of see-and-be-seen going on here as well, which usually isn't my vibe, but also somehow manages not to get too obnoxious, at least until about 10 pm. After that the bar gets lit up and the "ayam" hunt for their prey.

“cool place, good location, good food, pricey drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

i went here a couple of times - dinner, drinks, etc. The food was quite good . Drinks are quite expensive but alcohol is expensive in Jakarta everywhere. This looks like quite a trendy place with a lot of non-local crowd. It is in the Oakwood building in Mega Kuningan close to the JW Marriott. Stays open late and good crowd. worth a visit.
