Maxi Bar opened in 2010, to replace One Tree bar. It is now owned by a guy from New-Zealand, also behind Maxi Pub in Serpong. Maxi Bar is unsophisticated, and yet with a better hygiene and decoration than most of Jalan Falatehan's venues. You have about half a dozen waitresses in sexy outfit, very friendly I must say, but unfortunately no customers during my visit (a Wednesday night at 11pm). They also have a brand-new pool table.

I tried their food, the beef ribs (Rp77k++) and the Chicken Cordon Bleu (which they call Gordon Blue, Rp60k++). I did not expect much but it was actually pretty tasty. It is still a bit expensive compared to what you can get elsewhere, but at least they are not ripping you off. Other dishes include all the classic pub fares in Jakarta: Burgers, steaks, nachos, pasta and asian favourites. The draught bintang cost Rp27k++.
The beef ribs
Overall: If crowded, it could be a decent place. Check it on weekend nights maybe. Otherwise, if you want to be in a happening place, just go to Top Gun.
Opening hours: Everyday until 2am.

  1. was there few days ago with my friend . the chicken c bleu is really tasty and worthed to try and the waiters is so nice as well and speak fluently in english . nice, clean and no ayam at all just friends and xpat colleagues around and few indonesia man after work drinkin beer . the food is splendid and worth every penny but the beef ribs kinda raw . so my best suggestion is try the chicken c bleu and other snack there its huge portion and really tasty .
