Still at Grand Indonesia, for wine lovers Social House on the third floor has a rich collection of wines. It also serves light food or snacks, such as pizza, spring rolls, French fries and so on. This is the right place to relax and enjoy the view of Hotel Indonesia traffic circle and at night you can enjoy the unique decorative street lights on Jakarta’s main thoroughfare.
If you prefer a more entertaining venue then visit Dragonfly which is located at Graha BIP, Jl. Gatot Su-broto, Jakarta. Here after dinner you can immediately enjoy enthralling music played by DJ Justeen.
Currently there are many places to hang out in the city that offer a creative ambience. Entirely new concepts are offered by such places and the plus point is that they are located in strategic spots, such as clubs that you can find in office buildings and malls. This means access is easy as they are not complicated to reach.
Another popular hangout is Blowfish Kitchen & Bar which is owned by Ismaya Group. Blowfish’s strength is its Asian or Japanese ambience. The place is divided into two parts, restaurant and lounge with a modern Japanese look that is also seen in its restaurant and bar. Blowfish serves modern fusion Japanese food, and the lounge has numerous cocktails ala Blowfish. (Burhan Abe)
