WHY GO

Passionate, experienced bartenders offer classic cocktails and a huge single malt whisky collection. Subdued lighting and private booths allow for intimate conversations or work meetings and give the place a “gentleman’s club” ambience, while locally influenced music caters to travellers staying in the Fairmont Jakarta hotel, which houses the bar.

TATLER TIPS

Don’t be afraid to ask for something off-menu as the homemade syrups and bitters make for some amazing cocktails. After a large meal in one of the many hotel restaurants, head here for a cocktail or wee dram that will help you to relax.

• Try an old fashioned, but choose the option to change the bourbon to maker mark or Wild turkey and add some homemade orange bitters

• The clover club is something light and has a raspberry aftertaste; opt for Hendrix or Tanqueray gin for a floral alternative

• The Wagyu beef sliders are a hearty bar snack thataccompanies the extensive whisky list
