BATS has everything going for it...superb brand, fantastic music, great choice in liquor and nibbles and a refined crowd. One need to jostle and fight ones way to the bar, a simple nod to a waiter will do, thank you. The food is quite good, but dont be expecting gourmet in what is essentially a bar with live music.

Live music each evening, free Sunday admission, most bar staff are somewhat friendly, lots of eye candy though 'working ladies' comprise 95% of the female clientele, expensive drinks, sometimes bar/waitress service is slow due to large crowd. Worth at least one visit per week.

The bar is one of the best known in Jakarta. After 10 p.m. the bar starts to get busy with hotel guests and (mostly male) visitors from outside the hotel. Also present are quite a lot of self employed young ladies who are eager to start a conversation, presumably to improve their English.

This place seems to attract a lot of westerners, so it's a little expensive. However, the live music was great. Nice seating areas. Attentive service. Good vibe. Will likely be back here if I have another opportunity.
