Queen's Head Pub and Restaurant is one of the trendiest venues to have opened this year in Kemang. As there are already dozens of reviews of the place on internet, I'll just briefly write about the top 4 things you should know about it:
1) Don't visit Queen's Head for the food as they serve the usual overpriced bistro dishes that you get everywhere in Jakarta (read my review: Why The Food in Jakarta Restaurants is so Bad?). They propose a mix of Indian and Western food that will cost you at least 20$ per person for 2 courses without drinks. Not bad taste but I've had better for the price, especially in Kemang.
2) Impressive, unique design. Photos are the best way to describe it (they are all from Martin Westwood):

3) Created by a team of expats from Bali: Design by Rob Sample (also behind Jenja Club in Bali), management by Steve Collinson from Ku De Ta, menu by Chef James Tombleson (Deus Ex Machina and Mamasan).
4) Potentially one of the best bars in Kemang. Queen's Head was recently launched in late 2014 so it is a bit early to be definitive. Still, it could become a favorite hangout place for the expats living in the area who would normally go to Sudirman/Kemang for drinks. Their events so far were good and they've managed to attract the best crowd.
