Jakarta's hangout spots

With its sophisticated downtown vibe, Jakarta has many choices of hangout places to go to – whether to catch up with friends, dine, drink, meet business partners, or just to wind down after a hustle long day at work.

So you’ve just arrived, or live in Jakarta and it all feels a little overwhelming with the chaotic traffic, or you don’t know where to relax your mind after a hustle day at work? Well, Jakarta is the capital of one of the world’s largest countries, busy days are quite normal here. However, it’s also the hub which hosts all very reputable discos, sports bars, upscale lounge bars, and much more. So, whether you are an expat, local resident, or a tourist in this crowded city, worry not as there are numerous places to shake your legs and allow your hair utterly till the wee hours within the morning, or simply to relax your nerves after a long busy day.
