Robot & Co (Jakarta)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars)
Robot & Co is a new bar/restaurant replacing the famous Potato Head Café. It is located on the ground floor of the luxury mall Pacific Place, in a corner that has become one of the hotspots of SCBD nightlife. Indeed, just next to Robot & Co, you will find more popular bars like Cork & Screw, Chambers, Odysseia, Hard Rock Café, and Osteria Gia. 

Robot & Co has kept some similarities with Potato Head. It still has the long, central bar, and the mezzanine above it. However, the iconic vintage windows have been replaced by neat bamboo walls, giving the space a more modern vibe. Another important change is that the outdoor area has been closed with glass panels. It is still a relaxing spot to hang out, surrounded by leafy plants, but at least you won't suffer from the heat anymore.

They've also added some comfortable sofas in the back and in the mezzanine, perfect for starting a night out with a small group of friends (minimum spending of IDR1,5M after 6 PM).

The menu features mostly Western favorites (salads, soups, pasta, burgers, grilled fish and meat) and a few Asian dishes. Their imported steaks are the most expensive items on the menu, starting at IDR260,000++ for an Australian grass-fed sirloin.

I went for the Pan-seared salmon (IDR170,000++) and I was happy with both the presentation and the taste. It was served with lemon-orange velouté and a gratin, both of which went above my expectations.

They also have a nice selection of hand-crafted cocktails (all priced between IDR130,000++ and IDR145,000++). I tried a few but my favorite was “La Contesa”, a tropical cocktail with a rum and blue Curacao base, pineapple juice, and spice syrup. 

Robot & Co is open from 11 AM until late dinner. Its atmosphere and its crowd change throughout the day. During lunch, most customers are executives and businessmen working in nearby offices. Starting at 6 PM, the place becomes less formal, with chillout music and a mixed crowd of diners/drinkers. Finally, from 10.30 PM onwards (especially starting Wednesdays), the DJs will turn up the sound and play some more upbeat tunes (House, R'n'B, Funk, EDM, Disco depending on the night).

Overall:
Recommended for after-hour drinks or dinner before exploring the rest of SCBD nightlife.

​Opening Hours:
Every day from 11 AM to 12 AM (1 AM on weekends and 10 PM on Sunday).
