  1. nice concept, try to reach in palembang wkwkwk

  2. i think the best rooftop bars skye , but expensive than the others. But overall i like rooftop bar (except raining) haha

  3. One of the best rooftop bars in Jakarta in my opinion is 33 degrees bar in Ancol Aston.. Fantastic views from there and the price reasonable...

  4. Have you tried Discovery Sky in Ancol? It is not exactly rooftop but there is a very nice view...

  5. You forgot to mention Nuage on top of Prime Whiz Hotel in Kelapa Gading ...

  6. Skye and Cloud really rock! Awesome view and nice staff! Only a pity expat old men act like Bill Gates pretending they are hot with their fat belly's looking for young deers

  7. Jakarta is polluted, I found the smog somewhat off-putting there. I avoid anything outdoors in the city centre for the same reason.

  8. You have K22 Rooftop Bar in Fairmont Hotel now. It is quite nice as well but very pricey.

  9. Savanna Rooftop Bar in Kelapa Gading... it's a cool place with DJs, live music and on Saturday stand up comedy...
