Chamber is a whisky/wine bar and restaurant squeezed between Potato Head and Cork&Screw in Pacific Place mall. It replaces Capocaccia.
It is intimate and comfortable, with an outdoor and an indoor area. The design follows the current 1930s vintage trend that you can see in several speakeasy bars in Jakarta. It is a bit over the top for my taste. They target rich Indonesians by advertising a large collection of wines and spirits. Most items can only be ordered by bottle so avoid if you come alone.
The food is quite disappointing. It is expensive (10$ for a Nasi Campur or Spaghetti) and yet I don't feel they put a lot of effort into it. Most dishes are actually Indonesian, which does not really match with the theme of the restaurant. This may be due to the fact that their kitchen is small.
Overall: I think that Chamber is not on par with the competition in Pacific Place. While the design is nice, it seems to be lacking substance compared to nearby Paul, Cork&Screw and Potato Head.
