SKYE Bar and Restaurant

Jakarta, Indonesia • Recommendation • a year ago

SKYE Bar and Restaurant sits on the 56th floor of the BCA Tower, one of the tallest skyscrapers in Indonesia.

Cloud Lounge and Dining

Jakarta, Indonesia • Recommendation • a year ago

People flock to Cloud Lounge and Dining to experience the country's first ever Vodka Room. Here, you take shots of the spirit in a room with zero-degree temperature. The concept comes from the German tradition of enjoying the drink during winter. Not to keen on the cold? Go to the alfresco area and plop down on the comfy sofas, instead. Cloud gets really packed during peak hours, so call and reserve ahead to get the best seats in the house!
