Black Canyon Coffee is a Thai coffee house chain that has over 150 cafés in Siam, and is extending rapidly in the rest of Southeast Asia.

I don't know if it is the same in the other Jakarta branches (like the one in Cipete), but in Black Canyon Dharmawangsa, they have quite popular salsa nights on Saturdays. Otherwise, it's a regular bar sitting on a mall. If you only care about partying, no reasons to go there unless for those special Salsa nights.

Black Canyon Coffee does not sell alcohol except beer so if you're too shy to dance, do a warm up before. Girls seem a bit desperate to find dance partners in Jakarta, so it's a good opportunity to meet young, smart and independent indonesian ladies.

Update May 2011: I believe there are no more salsa nights in Black Canyon. Apart from Mistere (every Thursday/Rp100,000), you can try Hacienda in Senayan Arcadia on Wednesdays if you are looking for a place to dance salsa in Jakarta.
