Best Bars in Mega Kuningan
Mega Kuningan, a sprawling business district in South Jakarta offering various five-star hotels—two of them being the renowned JW Marriott and The Ritz—as well as high-rise apartment towers like the Bellagio Mansion. The district is also home to several governmental buildings, especially embassies, namely those of China and Kuwait. There are also offices of many local and multinational companies which makes Mega Kuningan one of the lavish areas in Jakarta.
This, in return, makes room for bars and nightclubs to compete within the district. If you’re looking to enjoy the evening with your friends and co-workers, or even to simply unwind, we’ve compiled five best bars in Mega Kuningan (in no particular order) so you know where to go when you need a quick sip:
