D's Place
Address: Jl. Falatehan I No. 1 C., Blok M, South Jakarta
Phone: (62)(21) 7941609
Specialties: D's Place has a great ambience - it's a good place to get slowly and sociably smashed out of your skull. By general consensus it's the best place on the Blok for cheap drinks and honest bar bills, but service can be patchy. Getting a bar girl to take your order is sometimes like trying to get a London bus - you wait for ages, then suddenly two or three arrive at once. Downstairs is a nicely designed bar and pool annex, but it's rather small (“bijoux” in the parlance of estate agents) and the pool table is so close to the side wall and a central pillar that it would challenge Harry Houdini to play a decent game. Upstairs is a cool, dimly-lit bar with what might best be described as an up-market sleaziness.
D's Place has become the most popular pick-up place on the block, and after about 10.30 pm upstairs is usually wall-to-wall girls. You can barely make out peoples' faces in the half-light - and many a jar of beer has missed its mark when being put down on a table, ending up on the floor instead.

Address:Jl. Melawai Raya No. 73, South Jakarta.
Phone: (62)(21) 7257181, Fax: (62)(21) 7254151.
Specialties: Caesar Salad, Goulash Soup, Calamari Calypso, Entrecote Conosierre, Veal Escallop St. debasic, Deep Fried Oxtail.
Facilities: bar, live music (hip hop, retro and jazz), restaurant, discotheque. Drinks: fine wine, cocktail, liquer based coffee, Debasic Sensation, Strawberry Basic Margarita, Long Basic Island.

Address: Jl. Jend. Gatot Subroto Kav 23. Graha BIP 1st Fl, Jakarta 12930
Phone: (62)(21) 520 2913
Specialties: This bar is Jakarta's top place for the idle rich to see and be seen. As one of Jakarta's newest hot spots, Dragonfly is a new restaurant and bar concept. This cavernous space features interlocking marble tables, onyx lighting and a huge glowing amber wall with leaf patterns that mimic a jungle canopy at dusk. Votive candles add a moody flicker to the Indochine-inspired space while, in the kitchen, Malay, Thai and Chinese cooks battle it out for supremacy with dishes like crispy soon hock with ginger spring onion and Thai curry prawn with egg white. Free entry.

Address: Jl. Falatehan I/12K, Blok M, South Jakarta
Phone: (62)(21) 726 2772, Fax: (62)(21) 725 1308. Opening hours: 11.00 AM to 02.00 AM.
Specialties: This two stories-sports themed- bar is located at Pelatehan street in Blok M Area, South Jakarta. The first floor features a classical bar and eating area plus podium for a live band, while the second floor features a pool table and dining area. You can observe the bar and podium area from this second floor. This bar also has a massive cinema size screen for major sports events. The drinks are premium priced, and the menu offers a sensibly conservative range of dishes all at mainstream prices. The spectrum of spirits and liqueurs is quite stunning - at least five types of Bols, good quality cognacs and single malts festoon the bar, plus a variety of classical drinks from around the world that are completely alien species to Blok M.

Specialties: In this club The resident DJs, including DJ Nanda (new jazz and broken beat tunes), spin on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. As for DJ Harry (garage and classic disco), he's on board during Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.
