Bremer (Kemang) Jakarta Beerhouse

By The Jakarta Team →
Bremer Beer House is a friendly, tiny bar in Kemang with a beer garden and live performances occasionaly. Very popular at the moment, it's a good address to try in Kemang and it's not particularly expensive. The crowd is quite young though so you may want to avoid it if you are anything above 25 years-old.

Café De Burse (Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars →
Café De Burse is the latest bar opened by Bartele, probably Jakarta's most famous expatriate. He is also the owner of Eastern Promise , De Hooi , Cazbar , and One Tree . De Burse is different from his other venues, though the concept remains similar: It is a restaurant and bar with an international menu, friendly and cute waitresses, and a regular schedule of events and promos. So far, it is still quiet, probably because the location is only busy during working hours. I had a caipirinha (Rp68k) and I was disappointed as they used ice cubes instead of crushed ice. But it is common in Indonesia so it wasn't a big deal. I didn't order any food, but considering what I had in his other venues, you can expect good-value for money, even with western dishes. An average meal will cost you less than Rp80k, and a pint of Bintang Rp53k, including taxes.

Die Stube (Kemang)

By Jakarta100bars →
One of the favorite expat restaurants in Jakarta, Die Stube manages to serve excellent German food at a reasonable fare (less than Rp100,000 for a meal with drinks). The design is very simple, nothing too fancy. Highly recommended . It is also a popular drinking joint as it offers a wide selection of beers. The crowd is a mix of locals and long-term expatriates (all age groups, but mostly above 35). They organize a special event for Oktoberfest every year and put a wide screen when the German team is playing. Live music occasionally. You can check their latest news on its facebook page: Die Stube . The owner of Die Stube, Patrick Widjaja, opened a similar restaurant in Cilandak called Imbiss Stube (Citos). Other German restaurants in Jakarta are Paulaner Brauhaus (more upmarket) and Ya Udah Bistro. Opening hours: Every day from 11.30am to midnight (1am on weekends).

Eastern Promise Pub and Live Music (Kemang)

By The Jakarta Team →
Eastern Promise is a friendly, laid-back expat pub with several rooms, each with a particular atmosphere. You have a quiet bar in the entrance, then a dining room for eating British and Indian food , and in the back a beer garden with live music for partying. Also on the side, a billiard/darts room, and a sports-watching room. Eastern Promise is usually very crowded, especially on weekends, with a lot of expatriates mostly above 35.

Harmiones Barrack café (Kelapa Gading)

By Jakarta100bars →
A bar/restaurant, Harmonies Barrack is more popular for its discounted prices on beer than its food (Rp25k for draught Carlsberg). Not very pretty but easygoing atmosphere, especially among the shisha smokers. Mostly young, local crowd. I think the Barrack is for Barrack Obama but I'm not 100% sure... Another similar beer drinking joint in La Piazza is The Barrels . Harmiones Barrack La Piazza, Ground Floor

Hops & Malt (Beer House)

By Jakarta100bars →
Hops & Malt is a fun place to drink cheap beers in Pantai Indah Kapuk. Popular with young Indonesians, it is similar with other recently-opened beer houses in Jakarta ( Barrels , La Bière , etc..). It is the beginning of a new trend actually, since until a few years ago, beer drinking was not so common outside of the main bars in Kemang and the Golden triangle (except in dodgy venues).

La Bière Restaurant Beer House

By Jakarta100bars →
La Bière (the beer in French) is a restaurant with Indonesian and Western food, and more importantly, a late-night hangout spot in the Central Park mall (Tribeca). I didn't try the food, but from what many food blogs are saying, it is rather good, though more expensive than average. To have a beer, it is perfect especially on Friday and Saturday as it doesn't close before 3am. It isn't extraordinary, but you don't have so much choice if you live in the area anyway. Opening hours: Everyday from 11am to midnight (and 3am on weekends)

Minus 2 (Senayan)

By The Jakarta Team →
Update October 2011: Minus 2 is closing at the end of the month but it should open again in another location soon. Minus 2 is a bar who came with the concept of serving extremely cold beer to its customers... Sounds very marketing-ish to me... Average prices for a mall. The bar is quiet apart from that, and past the amusement of getting your beer, quite boring. One good thing, the sofas are comfortable and you can look at everyone passing by in the mall. Update November 2010: The bar is becoming nice since I wrote this, there are now quite many customers, and at least it is the loudest place to go to in Fx Mall. Music is house/rnb. Some expats are there.
