I went there with my husband on Thursday night. We had something to eat and the food was tasty and reasonably priced. At 8.30 pm a reggae band started playing and carried on for few hours. It wasn't busy but the atmosphere was brilliant. Everyone was friendly, joyful and relaxed. Few beers helped to embrace the true soul of this... More

Great place with good live music, dancing people, good drinks and a friendly atmosphere. Isolated from the busy main street, definitely a plus. We didn't have any problem with the service, in fact the staff was much friendly and nice.

This small bar or tavern is just so fits in the market and community until a servant behaviour shows an impolite way of service I think her name is Putri which means princess in English, she was treating us in this case : loyal customer like hell 😬😬😬 Well, it is a pity! They need to be trained how to... More

I dunno maybe we came there almost in the middle of the night.. But their servants is not really nice to us.. And since we sit in the second floor its kinda hard to us for ordering or getting attention from them. Or maybe because we are only local people.. I only guessing it right now. The place is well...

This is by far the best place in town to enjoy live music. Brown sugar and semendelic often perform here and make the night a happening. It's only a small place, so it fills up quickly. Most of the crowd is local. My absolute favourite!

I got there by chance and it was one of the establiments i enjoyed the most in jogja. Live music was great, at the rythm of reggae.

Stopped in this place for a beer at the end of the day, and ended up staying for 2 hours. Really good live music, friendly service, and very inviting atmosphere, with a mix of locals and tourists. Good place to wind down your night.

I spent 2 years in Jogya and I going back later this year. I miss this place so much. I miss the wonderful music, the characters, the whole place. The food is reasonable, but it's the whole ambiance of the place. This place is second to none! As others have said, a different genre of music most nights but the... More
