Jakarta is filled with amazing restaurants and bars, but sometimes we feel bored with the same concept and want something more. After a long day working and when meeting up with friends, it feels most comfortable choosing a rooftop bar. At certain times, Jakarta can have some amazing metropolitan views. So here are five rooftop bars in Central Jakarta not only comfortable but also have extraordinary view.

1. La Vue Rooftop Bar
Located in Central Jakarta, La Vue Rooftop Bar offers unmatched 360º view of the city you would not find elsewhere. The bar located on the 9th floor of The spread across two floors. The bar is downstairs, squirming nicely beside the hotel’s swimming pool, and the lounge is on the rooftop.

The alcoholic drink selections are quite diverse. You can try their Cheesecake Creamy cocktail which is indeed very creamy, but tastes more like an Oreo frappe with a hint of baileys. Or you can opt for the La Berrie’s, a sweet cocktail rich with blackberry and grape chunks. As a companion, you can choose Tapas Platter Selection contains patatas bravas, calamari, chicken wings, croquette, and lumpia semarang, with its bountiful sauce is an indelible affair.

BART offers an air of luxury, a seventh floor rooftop sanctuary mixing lively atmosphere, hospitality and panoramic views of the leafy residential district of Menteng and the glass and marble corridor of Jalan Thamrin and beyond. The rooftop bar in Central Jakarta is spacious with plenty of seats available in the open air and a small private room with air conditioning. The interior is a smooth execution of monochromic theme that projects an “uptown chicness” feel across the whole space.
