Burgundy Bar & Lounge & Live Jazz Music (Hyatt Hotel Jakarta)

By The Jakarta Team →
Expensive drinks (Beer = Rp 60k), but classy bar with live music everyday (including Jazz ) and businessmen talking. Not a hotspot of Jakarta nightlife and rather quiet, it attracts the capital's most upmarket crowd. Definitely not a girls' bar comparing with BATS in Shangri La hotel or CJs bar in Hotel Mulia, but unexpected meetings are not impossible since some rich, older indonesian women come here. There are a few working girls as well that always hang out in Burgundy and I suppose they are up for grab. Awesome view on Plaza Indonesia, making the experience quite enjoyable.

Cava Jazz Coffee Lounge (Cikini)

By Jakarta100bars →
Cava (ça va in French, meaning "I'm feeling good) is a new restaurant and bar in Cikini with jazz music in the background. A live band plays there but only once a week, on Saturday evenings from 7pm to 10pm. The place is gorgeous but expensive (around 150,000rp for one person) and the food far from being awesome, except for the desserts. I recommend it if you like live jazz  and come on a saturday night. Do make a reservation because Cava isn't so big. Cava-jazz coffee lounge

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.

Kudus Bar Jakarta (The Sultan Hotel, ex-Hilton, Jalan Sudirman)

By The Jakarta Team →
Nice classy wine bar, popular with businessmen, expats and wealthy locals. The decor is inspired by the town of Kudus, in Central Java, to make its interior Jakarta's first "Javanese wine lounge". The beautiful furniture and artefacts gives Kudus an elegant feel, without being too pompous. You also have an interesting selection of live music, from jazz to acoustic, every day from 8pm to midnight (you can check the schedule here: Sultan Jakarta Kudus Bar ). Kudus is quite expensive, but you have some interesting discounts if you come during the happy hours, from 5pm to 8pm, with 30% off on beers and soft drinks and 15% off on wines.

Orleans Bistro Live Music and Dining

By Jakarta100bars →
Orleans Bistro is a fine dining restaurant featuring live jazz music every Friday nights. The other nights, from Wednesday to Saturday, a professional pianist will entertain clients at the piano with some classic tunes and they are welcomed to sing along. The food is expensive for Indonesian standards, around 80,000 rupiah per dish, but well worth it as it is creative and unique in Jakarta. The menu is made of a very subtle fusion of Cajun and Indonesian dishes. Photo:

Shanghai Blue 1920

By The Jakarta Team →
Shanghai Blue 1920 is a chic restaurant and bar owned by the Tugu Group, who possesses various hotels and restaurants in Indonesia. The objective of the bar is to bring you back to the golden era of Shanghai (apparently in 1920 was the time to be there…). I give a 10/10 for the settings, really beautiful and impressing. The food is a mix of Chinese , Betawi and Peranakan, that of the first Chinese migrants who came to Indonesia. It is excellent and creative, but very expensive: At least Rp. 150,000 per person with wine. There is a live band playing old jazz tunes almost every evening, with a focus on Mandarin Jazz. Occasionally, you also have guest singers and musicians. You can check their website for more information.

The Lounge (Hotel Le Grandeur Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars →
  The Lounge is the bar inside Le Grandeur Hotel in Mangga Dua. Surprinsingly for North Jakarta, it is not a seedy place but a classy Jazz lounge with modern design and great service. If you are staying in North Jakarta and you want a place without the usual house music/prostitution scene, I think that The Lounge is perfect. The live music starts at 8.30pm, everyday, and finishes at 00h30.

The Bar in Four Seasons Hotel

By Jakarta100bars →
Little know and quiet, "The Bar" is the lounge of the Four Seasons Hotel. It isn't very crowded, except with a few regulars who come to enjoy the live jazz music . Usually it happens 4 times a week but you may call them first to ask for more details.
