Aphrodite is a bar and restaurant located not very far from the Taman Rasuna tower. As such, it is a meeting point for many of the expats living in the area, and you'll almost always find it crowded.

The menu is quite long, with mainly pub food. It is pretty decent and though more expensive than average, good value.

Many customers come to Aphrodite to watch sports: English Premier League, F1, Cricket, etc.. You can check the schedule here: Sports Schedule Bar Aphrodite. Personally, since I'm not a fan of anything, all these plasma screens tend to bother me. And it's even worse when no sport is on because they will put Fashion TV, making it very difficult to stay focus talking to your average-looking friends.

The best point about Aphrodite is that it is a popular hangout for some Indonesian girls as well, the kind you could meet in Red Square (looking for a foreigner, but not a pro). Thursday and Saturday is ladies' night, and the best night to visit if you are looking to party. Girls get free drinks from 8PM to 1AM. On most nights, you have a live band playing pop and rock songs.

You can check their website here: Aphrodite Jakarta and also their facebook: Aphrodite Group and Aphrodite Bar and Restaurant.
Opening Hours:
From Monday to Thursday: 6:00 am - 2:00 am
From Friday to Saturday: 6:00 am to 3:00 am
Sunday: 6:00 am to 12:30 am

  3. Forget Aphro. They've just started live music there, thus adding it to the list of bars where you have to shout at your friends...

  4. Live music is only Thursday nights (and some Saturdays, I think).

  8. Avoid this place. Might be nice, at first, but a relative of one of the owners was too drunk one day, can't handle any critisism and punched a man i know becoz he said something about his dad?
    This man hit him back of course, but now he is not allowed in there for something the management/stock holder did wrong.

  10. great for sports - many flat screens with just about every global sport... nice atmosphere - great pies but avoid the sausages - they microwave them before preparing them and sadly, they taste like rubber... many other dishes - pub grub is quite good. Drinks are pricey and a strange approach to happy hour. (they raise the price of the drinks during happy hour and you get one free for every two..) Several pool tables

  13. Watch out for the scam at happy hour. They say it's "buy one get one" but actually the cost of one beer is raised by 50%. So instead of one beer = 30,000Rp, one beer costs 46,000Rp but a second one is free. Confused? join the club.

  20. Watch out for the scam at happy hour. As a regular customer you would think not to get cheated. Well think again. This was good place several years ago, not anymore. I DON'T recommend.
