The apartment is near several grocery stores and mini markets (Hypermarts, Superindo, etc.), so you don't need to travel far to stock up your pantry. If you are on the mood for retail therapy, the apartment is close to large shopping malls in the Kelapa Gading area. A few minutes of driving will get you to Kelapa Gading Mall, which is one of the largest malls in Jakarta with more than 600 stores, an IMAX cinema, and a large food court. Shopping is never easier when you live in Gading Icon.
Restaurants and Bars
Kelapa Gading has plenty of options for great restaurants, especially Asian foods (Chinese, Korean, Japanese, etc). You could find them on the Boulevard Raya Street. The restaurants have different price points, though most of them offer affordable food with excellent taste. For a more upscale dining experience, you can go to the Kelapa Gading Mall. This upper-range mall offer choices of casual dining to fine dining restaurants perfect for dates with your significant other.
While on daylight Boulevard Raya Street offers your great tasting dishes at a low price, at night it turns into a vibrant nightlife center of North Jakarta. The street has several options for bars and pubs that are close to each other, making it a perfect place to go bar crawling. We recommend Bier 'n Flugel, a cozy watering hole serving beers with classic bar foods (chicken wings, pizza, etc.). Order the beer tower so you can have a great night of drinking with your buddies before the week start.
Gading Icon is surrounded by well-integrated public transportations. Just in front of the complex is the TransJakarta Bus Shelter which is linked to other public transportations such as LRT and MRT. Using the integrated transportation system of Jakarta is a great way to travel around the city for they are much more punctual and reliable than other public transportation. However, if you want to fo to a more exclusive and suburban area, it is better to use a car. Another popular option is to book online taxis using Grab or Gojek mobile apps
