There are no more inquiries needed regarding how easy shopping in Slipi could be. It is not relatively easy anymore. It is scientifically-proved easy! The people of Senayan can easily reach traditional markets located in Palmerah and Tanah Abang, but also has access to upscale shopping malls with high-end brands and imported grocery stores. The area has several malls, each with its own unique features, such as the Plaza Senayan and Senayan City which is a mid-to-upper class mall with an extensive collection of imported and local retail stores. As with malls in Jakarta, it has the expected facilities of supermarkets, cinemas, furniture/home appliance store, dept. stores, and other features that you might need. However, it is recommended to visit the traditional market in Jl. Surabaya if you are looking for authentic local products, specifically ornate furniture or antiques.
Restaurant and Bars
To go to fancy restaurants and bars, or not to go... To go to casual restaurants and bars, or not to go... These are the questions you are going to ask yourself every day since there are just too many options to choose from! Like most upscale areas in Jakarta, Senayan has extensive options for restaurants and bars. If you're looking for casual restaurants with affordable menus, you can try to visit the fX Sudirman which offers a variety of restaurants and cafes spread within its eight-stories building. There is also Plaza Senayan which has a great selection of high-quality restaurants, that is ideal for a semi-formal business lunch or other important events. Our recommendation is Remboelan on Upper Level 3 which offers authentic but elevated Indonesian cuisines.
People do not sleep in Jakarta. At night, they go out to grab some drinks or dancing the night away within the beat of the DJ's tonight playlist. The best of bars and clubs in Jakarta is just around the neighborhood, such as Fable, Dragonfly, and Blowfish Club. For a quiet night drinking, you should go to Molly's Malone Irish Pub, located in Senayan Arcadia. The bar is an international chain of bars located in the metropolitan cities around the world, it has the authentic Irish pub feel to it with a classic interior, jovial atmosphere, and live music playing in the background.
Many public transportation options are ready to take you anywhere. Generally, people in Jakarta commute through KRL or the newly built MRT, take the feeder bus service called TransJakarta, or book a GoJek or GrabBike to go around. The price is definitely affordable. Going around Jakarta is hassle-free with the many transportation options you can choose from.
