Having successfully won the hearts of Jakartans with the likes of Beer Garden, Pao Pao and Mother Monster, it’s just a matter of time before the Biko Group makes their next move. Solidifying their force in Jakarta’s nightlife scene, Duck Down Bar has opened its doors in Gunawarman, South Jakarta’s newest all-American inspired bar.
Being tucked under an underground basement may at first remind visitors of Biko’s other sibling, Lola, which lies only a few doors down the road. Like the latter, the journey down the stairs to Duck Down Bar exudes an aura of exclusivity that is sure to excite patrons on their visit. However, you will surprise as you will see a poster of Donald Trump that welcomes you as you enter. This sort of audacious graphic continues on inside to cover every corner of the space. As if that’s not enough, the bar’s embodiment of freedom and recklessness is at full swing with their lacklustre furniture and dimmed lights decorating the space. Taking everything in, guests may make sense of it all and realise that this is a place to truly have fun.
While other establishments entertaining by the current wave of hip-hop, R&B and electronic dance genre to amuse guests, no such tunes will be played here. Instead, guests can nod their heads and embark themselves on a nostalgic journey with sounds ranging from AC/DC, Metallica, Mötley Crüe, to the most guilty pleasures of the 90s and 2000s such as Britney Spears and Katy Perry. Regardless of which era you are born to, there’s music for everyone to shimmy to.
For the food, not bad. You can choose between a serving of a humble hot dog or waffle fries or both to appease that pre-party hunger. Laid-back, casual attire is just as acceptable where crowds can feel their most comfortable to spend the night. Just make sure to reserve a table before the wave of crowd comes.
