Being the fashion and lifestyle Mecca of Jakarta, the streets of Kemang are lined with the city’s best establishments that keep the district alive all day long, from shopping centers to bars. Discover the best bars in Kemang, Jakarta that embrace different concepts from Tex-Mex to contemporary and traditional.
One of Jakarta’s most legendary places for Tex-Mex food and lively fiestas all week long. This place has live performances five nights a week to go with the famed margaritas and scrumptious snacks. If you’re into the vibrant Latin American atmosphere, come over during their regular Latin Night on Fridays and be prepared to dance.
Thanks to the cozy space and extensive menu, it didn’t take long for Parc 19 to rise as one of the most popular hangout spots in Kemang. Technically a bistro, Parc 19 serves a full menu from main courses to desserts, as well as drinks from coffee to beers and cocktails. Excellent all day long, they do put a lot of thought into making Parc 19 an ideal place to chill during the evening as well, with special prices on drinks, Happy Hour, and other programs and promotions.
This traditional English-style pub is one of the oldest and most reputable in the city. Beyond drinks, sports, and live music, Eastern Promise established a passionate community with loyal customers while welcoming new ones everyday. The authentic East-meets-West feel attracts many expats and foreign tourists as well, so get ready to meet a diverse crowd while enjoying the diverse menu that features British, Indian, and Indonesian favorites.
Staying true to its name, you can expect Ecology to welcome you with a cozy, earthy, and thoughtfully-crafted atmosphere that makes its guests feel connected to nature — something that can be pretty rare amid Jakarta’s concrete jungle. But beyond ambiance, Ecology serves an impressive menu as well. No matter the time of day, Ecology has the perfect selection of food and drink for you; coffee and healthy juices for the day, famed signature cocktails and whiskey for after-hours.
Popular among the younger population of Jakarta, Beer Garden tends to be packed with a hip, lively crowd. With four outlets throughout the city, Beer Garden is a trusted and popular brand that stays relevant with new programs and innovations. Beer Garden Kemang has this intimate and laid-back atmosphere — an al fresco garden concept with a modern, industrial touch — that goes well with a bottle (or two) of cold beer at the end of the day.
Not an ordinary British-style pub, Queenshead puts a contemporary spin into the good ol’ traditional concept, and even adds an Indonesian flair to it. The result is a bold interior with an authentic ambiance plus an innovative menu to satisfy even those with the most adventurous tastes. The place comes alive at night, with live music, events, and their own signature drinks and famed selection of wine.
Everyone needs a ‘beer bro’, and this bar helps set the ambiance for a fun night out with friends old and new. The playful murals make up a lively atmosphere that goes with the wide selection of beers (and beyond), live music, and diverse crowd. Food-wise, Beer Brother serves delectable and authentic Italian cuisine.
