“Didn't eat but great music anyway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

I went to BATS because I heard they had great live bands. As it turned out I wasn't disappointed, the band was very good. The pub itself is well laid out and it was packed with lots of expats. If you're on business and need some company check it out as there are lots do single women (wink wink). Watch the cover charge when you go in and enjoy the night.

“Very nice steak house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

After a couple of weeks in Indonesia I was looking for a place a little more familiar to my tastes, and BATS performed wonderfully. The ribeye I ordered came rare as I requested and tasted really good. Seasoned well and tender. Drinks were good and the staff did a great job. Live music was also good. All in all was a good experience and it felt a little like home.

“The food was perfect, but somewhat over priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

BATS hadn't changed much since I had been there some 5 years ago.
My colleague and I both had steaks - with some trimmings, a few drinks - and the bill came to over AU$200.00 - which is a little steep

However the steaks were cooked perfectly, the service was friendly, attentive and reasonably quick.

We went to this venue quite early - as I had heard it still got very busy, and somewhat loud later in the night.

We left just after the resident band started playing - not our cup of tea - so to speak.

“nice place to hang out after dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

B.A.T.S is a very crowded and nice hang out place if you look for nice company during your stay in jakarta, it´s full with expats, but also with beautiful local indonesian girls, who are ready to entertain expats in every way you expect it.....the live music is very good, the waiters are a little bit annoying and too agressive in selling drinks, ok they must earn their daily need....I do not like the very smokey air there, you smell like after a visit in a cigarette factory, but it´s not to avoid anyway....the entrance fee of 150.000 IDr is already including the first drink....drinks are sold on european price standards, draft beer is available....
