The Best Bars in Indonesia

A bar is a place where people gather to socialize and enjoy drinks, particularly alcoholic beverages. A bar can be a place to meet friends, relax and unwind after a long day or just grab a quick drink before heading home. The demand for bars in Indonesia has been increasing due to rising consumer demands for healthy snacks and convenience, as well as the increased popularity of sports and fitness activities.

Jakarta has a thriving pub scene, thanks to the city’s multicultural milieu. However, less-metropolitan areas tend to have fewer options, with warungs and mosques being the focal point for most social interaction.

For beer lovers, Kemang’s busy Beer Garden is a popular choice. It’s a large venue with a restaurant, sports bar, pool tables and beer garden, all under the same roof. It can get a little crowded, but the cheap beer and easy location make it a good place to meet up with friends and hang out for an evening.

The thumping digitech lounge and lively karaoke room at the Golden Crown nightclub are favourites of young locals. The club is open till 2 AM, and there’s even a hotel on site if you need to crash after a wild night of partying!

In the heart of cosmopolitan Jakarta, Mixology is an elegant cocktail bar curated by Yutaka Nakashima, one of Indonesia’s top Japanese cocktail bartenders. With dim lighting and organic features, the space is a perfect spot to unwind with a cocktail or two.
