Gravity Lounge in Makassar is probably the best rooftop bar in the city. It is on the 20th floor of the Swiss-Belhotel, a 4-star hotel that I recommend for nightlife lovers as it is also next to Zona Café.

It usually get busy around sunset time with people who come to enjoy the 180° view over the harbor and the city. The sky changes every day, but if you are lucky enough you might be able to see this:
After the sunset, it is worth staying in the lounge to listen to the live band, starting at 9PM. Most often, they will sing pop and Top 40 songs, both in English and in Indonesian. The sound is much better than elsewhere as they use a glass box. On Saturday, they even have two bands playing until 2AM. About once a month, they will also invite a famous local artist or organize a bigger special event.

Their current promotions are very interesting:
- Monday: Free flow of light food from 7PM to 9PM
- Tuesday: Jazz nights (buy 1 bottle of wine get a free cheese platter)
- Wednesday: Free flow tequila from 8PM to 10PM (for FREE!)
- Thursday: All-you-can-drink cocktails from 8PM to 10PM for IDR128,000 Net/person
- Sunday: Jazz brunch from 11AM to 3PM.

The restaurant serves the usual favorites: Steaks, Burgers, Pizzas, Salads, Pasta, as well as some Indonesian dishes (Sop Buntut, Nasi Goreng). Expect to pay between IDR100,000 net and IDR250,000 net for a main course.

The prices at the bar are a bit above the average for Makassar, but still affordable for Jakarta standards. A small beer bottle will cost you around IDR45,000 net and a basic cocktail around IDR125,000 net.
Of course, since the schedule will probably change, don't forget to check their Instagram account for the latest updates (see below).
