Venue Kemang - Bar & Nightclub

By The Jakarta Team →
The Venue is a popular lounge in Kemang, especially with young students and teenagers from the international schools in the South of Jakarta. The reason they are popular is that they don't ask for IDs so it's pretty easy to get in even if you are underage. Drinks are cheap, but I'm not 100% sure the alcohol is genuine. Small swimming pool in the back where you can throw yourself to. Starting at 10pm on weekend, DJs spin progressive and house music. For info about events, check their Instagram: The Venue Kemang Venue Kemang Bar & Lounge Jl. Kemang Selatan No.2 Telephone no: +62-21 780 5610 Mobile/HP: 08388242242

Hotel Monopoli - Moon Rooftop - Room Club - Kemang (Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars →
Hotel Monopoli is an upcoming project by Syah Establishments, the group behind famous venues like Lucy in the Sky , Sofia at the Gunawarman and Bauhaus . Located in Jalan Taman Kemang, maybe the hottest area in Kemang for nightlife at the moment, it will feature a boutique hotel, a restaurant on the ground floor, a club in its basement ( The Room ) and a rooftop bar ( The Moon ). I only saw it during a private party so I'm not sure how it will look like after the grand opening, but you can expect a trendy, yet fun vibe. Considering the Syah group's past successes, I'm certain that it will become a hit at least during the first few months after opening. I will update this page with more information and pictures once I get them. Do not hesitate to comment if you have been there. Hotel Monopoli -  Moon Rooftop Bar -  Room Club and Bar Jalan Taman Kemang No12, Kemang, South Jakarta 12730 Phone number: +62 22 71 51 01 Email: Info@monopolijakarta.com

Kemang Nightlife: The Best Bars and Clubs

By The Jakarta Team →
Update 2020: I deleted most of the content of this review as it was not up to date. Kemang nightlife still has a mix of venues for younger people (like Nu China/2nd Floor/Brexit) and venues for expats (such as EP - Eastern Promise). Since I haven't been there in a while, please leave a comment below if you know which bars and clubs are the most happening. Thanks!

Queen's Head (Kemang)

By Jakarta100bars →
Queen's Head Pub is one of the best restaurants in Kemang. It is an exclusive venue with an impressive design and excellent fusion food prepared by Blake Thornley, a New Zealand Chef who spent 5 years in  Mozaic Ubud .

Beer Brother Bar and Kitchen Kemang

By Jakarta100bars →
Beer Brother Bar + Kitchen is located in Taman Kemang, a residential area of Kemang which has seen a recent surge in bars and restaurants. This new nightlife area comprises Umbra, Cowboy Bar, Parc 19, and the Colony Building. Beer Brother opened about a year ago and it has managed to become successful rapidly. It is quite similar with other joints such as Bremer or Beer Garden , but there are a few notable differences: The design and marketing of the bar is more sophisticated and original, the music louder, and the choice of food and drinks really extensive (the menu must have 25 pages). The prices are not that cheap though except for basic beer. I was there just before a Champion's League quarterfinal, on a Tuesday, and it was full with a crowd ranging from young expats to hip Indonesians and high school kids. Most people come with a big group.

Anomali Coffee (Jakarta & Bali)

By Nyoman →
So many Coffee places in Jakarta ! Indonesia is in the Top 5 Coffee producer in the world, no wonder there are so many Coffee Shops in the city... It is not difficult to source coffee beans here. Anomali Coffee is a small and upscale coffee chain with 4 outlets in Jakarta and 2 in Bali. The different outlets in jakarta are mostly located in the South of the city. They claim themselves to be "Kopi Asli Indonesia" whick means Original Indonesian Coffee. It is one of the competitor of Liberica Coffee . What I like about this place ? Well it's quite intimate, the coffee is good and the service is pleasant. It's hard to tell the difference between two types of coffee when you are not a connoisseur. But each time I tried a beverage here, I was not disappointed. I had a Sandwich and a  Vanilla Eclair and it was also quite tasty, with a reasonable price (30 000 Rp for the Vanilla Eclair). Last but not least, the WiFi connection works quite well there

YOLO (Kemang)

By Nyoman →
  YOLO Public House is a Pub located in Kemang, right in front of KOI Restaurant Bar & Gallery. Yolo stands for "You Only Live Once", so Carpe Diem and enjoy life ! The pub food is good. The Yolo burger for 75 K is totally worth it. They have Live bands on Fridays and Saturdays which is pretty cool. Very important Burger Information: The burgers do have pickles here... The place opened in 2013. It is too small in my opinion, despite the 2 floors. And as many places in the area, I am not sure whether or not it will last very long...

Mamma Rosy (Kemang)

By Nyoman →
The Italian Restaurant Mamma Rosy is quite unique in Jakarta. To my knowledge, it is the only one which is entirely managed by an Italian expat family. At the top, you have Daniel Vigone, the main owner and manager, his mom (Mamma Rosy) who is behind the kitchen, and several other family members which I could not identify but seemed like their children/wife/sister. To see the whole family in the restaurant and in the kitchen gives you quite a good first impression and makes you feel instantly at home. If you have a bit of imagination, you could even feel as if you went to Italy...

Huize van Wely (The Papilion building, Kemang)

By Nyoman →
Huize van Wely is a Dutch Restaurant, Patissier and Chocolatier located in Kemang. This upscale restaurant is located in the Papilion building, the famous glass building on Kemang Raya. This type of architecture is quite uncommon in Jakarta, that is why I wanted to try this restaurant. On the top floor of this building you will find Shy Rooftop & restaurant ( you can check my review here ). Outstanding glass building, fancy Dutch restaurant, European-style cuisine...this place is very fancy ! This is not a regular place to hang out with your buddies...It would more suitable to make a proposal or to have a serious conversation. In this very chic decor, I tried to order some food and I was not disappointed. First they give you a small piece of French bread along with salted butter, which is a very sweet attention. Then I did not wait too long to taste my spicy quesadillas and that was very good. But the best part in my opinion in the dessert and chocolate area.

Caliente Mexican Restaurant Jakarta

By Unknown →
    Caliente is an affordable Mexican restaurant located in Kemang Village (Lippo Mall). It serves all Mexican favourites for a very reasonable price and the taste is good. The design of the place could be improved in my opinion as it resembles a fast food more than a restaurant. Caliente Mexican Restaurant Jakarta Lippo Mall Kemang, 3rd Floor #03, Jl. Pangeran Antasari Kav. 36, Kemang, Jakarta Opening Hours:  Caliente is opened every day from 10am to 10pm.

Yamas Greek Restaurant Jakarta

By Unknown →
Yamas is one of the few Greek Restaurant in Jakarta to my knowledge. It is located Jalan Prapanca. I haven't been there yet but a reliable friend told me he was disappointed with the food. Other options for Greek cuisine in Jakarta include: El Greco, Hola Niko and Cuadrillo. Yamas Greek Restaurant Jakarta Jl. Prapanca Raya No. 37 C Kemang, Jakarta

Amigos Restaurant (Tex-Mex)

By The Jakarta Team →
Established in Indonesia since 1979, Amigos is a popular family restaurant , the first with Mexican food in Jakarta (now there is also Hacienda ). It has two main targets, American expats who miss their tacos, and Indonesian middle class families eager to discover another continent's cuisine. Actually, we are seeing a lot more of these lately as expats are being spoiled with much better places to eat... The food is junk food, but the atmosphere is friendly. If you want to eat quietly, don't go in the evening because they have live music which can be quite loud. Happy hour from 4pm to 7pm (50% off soft drinks, juices and beer).  There are two branches: Amigos Kemang (It is the one with the best reputation) Jl. Kemang Selatan I

Beer Garden (Kemang)

By Jakarta100bars →
Beer Garden is currently one of the busiest bars in Kemang. Even on a Sunday night you should find it full. Nothing too fancy inside but it looks clean and cozy. Recommended for the easy-going atmosphere though it can get hot sometimes. If you go clubbing right after spending an evening in Beer Garden, chances are you will be all sweaty. It is not the cheapest place in Kemang, but the prices are very affordable. You can also try the nearby  Bremer bar if you are into beer gardens.

Die Stube (Kemang)

By Jakarta100bars →
One of the favorite expat restaurants in Jakarta, Die Stube manages to serve excellent German food at a reasonable fare (less than Rp100,000 for a meal with drinks). The design is very simple, nothing too fancy. Highly recommended . It is also a popular drinking joint as it offers a wide selection of beers. The crowd is a mix of locals and long-term expatriates (all age groups, but mostly above 35). They organize a special event for Oktoberfest every year and put a wide screen when the German team is playing. Live music occasionally. You can check their latest news on its facebook page: Die Stube . The owner of Die Stube, Patrick Widjaja, opened a similar restaurant in Cilandak called Imbiss Stube (Citos). Other German restaurants in Jakarta are Paulaner Brauhaus (more upmarket) and Ya Udah Bistro. Opening hours: Every day from 11.30am to midnight (1am on weekends).
