Hujan Locale is located on Jalan Sri Widari, footsteps from the bustling Ubud Central Market. Since opening in 2014, Hujan Locale has gained a reputation for serving high quality traditional Indonesian food, and this will never change. What has changed is the style of the dining areas, now providing fresh new options for our regular guests, local residents and the increasingly sophisticated visitor drawn to Ubud. Hujan Locale has transformed into a venue guaranteed to delight those looking for the next level in Modern Indonesian Cuisine and all day dining elegance.
At street level we have been inspired by Old Jakarta and have introduced an elegant yet relaxed all day dining area. Furnishings and decor evocative of the “Exotic East Indies” enhance the ambience while the bar area provides elevated seating and a beautiful long bar of antique polished wood.
Featuring Hujan Locale’s signature cocktails, twists on the classics and indulgently lavish creations, the Hujan Locale long board gourmet pizzas with locally sourced and unusual ingredients as well as an Indonesian Tapas style menu Hujan’s ground floor area will bring to life a past tradition of Batavian Cafe Culture, a hark back to the elegance of the Java Jazz era where open to the street daytime bars served fashionable cocktails to a sophisticated and fun loving clientele who sipped, snacked and smoked in relaxed fashion at anytime of the day.
During the daylight hours Hujan Locale’s downstairs will exude the atmosphere of the Parisian Cafe Bar with family seating and bar service, then, as the sun sets to the sounds of chilled modern Indonesian jazz fusion, the ambience envelops the adult world of cocktail hour, supper rendezvous and late night bar style dining.
Upstairs Hujan Locale’s dining area has become a 30 seater booking only dinner venue on weekdays open from 6pm to 11pm and on weekends there will be an additional brunch service from 12 noon to 3pm.
The menu will continue to celebrate the cuisine of Indonesia and honour the farm to table practices Hujan Locale is known for: The use of sustainably grown produce, the home smoked and cured meats, the locally sourced organic vegetables and the creation of contemporary twists on traditional Indonesian cuisine that has brought regional foods into the international spotlight. Hujan Locale’s new menu will reflect the elevation of Modern Indonesian Cuisine into a world class dining choice.
The inspiration is as always, Indonesia, this time Indonesia of the 1930’s when the metropolis of Jakarta, known as Batavia, was a multicultural melting pot of cool jazz scenes, beautiful people and elegant entertainments that bonded over the opulent life style of the “Exotic East Indies”.
The Sarong Group brings together the passion and enthusiasm for the cuisine culture of Asia. Each Sarong Group location has a signature design that creates the tone and ambience of exquisite dining interiors that compliments the thematic nuances of the menu. Mamasan echoes the grand dining rooms of a 1930’s Shanghai, while in Ubud Hujan Locale’s long bar and muted tones flavour the interiors with the relaxed confidence of Jazz era Jakarta.
