Longstanding popular place for cheap drinks on the fading Jalan Jaksa. Each time i go there seems to be a lot of the same characters hanging around as well as a few new arrivals. Will continue to return.

We spent two night here while visiting Jakarta. Lovely place to have a drink. Great vibe and good people. Staff was very nice. We'd recommend it to everybody visiting the area.

We ate here and it wasn't very good. The food we had was over cooked and quite bland. The French fries were over cooked, and the noodles weren't very tasty and were instant ones. The place itself is quite dingy and had a seedy feel to it. The staff were nice though and it has a corner full of books... More

Yet another crap suggestion from LP. It's definitely overpriced and the food is not good. Wish we hadn't made trip to try it.

Visited with my wife at first for a lunch and then decided to come back for a drink in the evening. It is a small hostel/restaurant with a nice sitting area (a good spot for people watching), reasonably priced drinks and food. Staff is very helpful, atmosphere charming and music not too loud. Quite a few locals blend in with... More

This is the top spot in Jalan Jaksa. Live music, beer, somehow pricey food that won't make you sick, tourists, locals, fun. Go there to meet people. The strange thing there was that I had an excellent satay one night and when I ordered the same dish some days later, the owner himself brought me something completely different, some smashed...

Honestly, I like these places in each Asia city. A bar on the street, lively, mixed crowed and during my visit only few white faces including me. My local friend brought me here to have a good time, some drinks, good talk and music starting around 10pm. While inside much to hot, we stayed at the bar outside and used... More

Nice place in Jakarta if you want to see eurpeans... Its a little hot, but ok. We had different indonesian food, all tasted very well to be gonest! Try the fried WonTon and selfmade springrolls! (I just got diarr. next day and dont know if this has to do with it.)
