Convivial Nautilus

Tucked away on the ground floor of Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta, the seductive Nautilus bar is an intimate setting for bespoke handcrafted cocktails. It’s the perfect venue to unwind after a day of exploring the city. The stunning art mural, depicting Jakarta’s old Sunda Kelapa trading port, is a focal point anchoring this bar, where expert Four Seasons bartenders can be seen handcrafting tantalizing libations.


Resembling New York City’s interior design, this restaurant and bar is designed to evoke a “Paris bistro meets New York loft in the 1940’s” feel, with its original Thonet chairs and leather banquet seats. The tin and copper ceiling panels, white brick walls and subway beveled tiles all combine to give the space an authentic New York-style bar feel.

Cork & Screw

A wine bar that boasts the largest selection of wine in town and possibly the country, it’s a great place to visit for an afternoon or night out. With branches in Pacific Place and Plaza Indonesia, it’s popular with businessmen and affluent socialites alike, who come for the after-work drinks or to catch up with friends over a glass of wine.
