“I would say it's one of the most complete mall in Jakarta and located nearby. Here's my typical rundown when I visit the mall with friends: - Grab brunch in Union or Monolog - If I want a full lunch, then I'd visit Remboelan - a restaurant that offers Indonesian local foods - Visit some local clothing store (CottonInk) or check-out for high quality affordable glass frames at Bridges EyeWear - Check out some books in Kinokuniya and grab Starbucks before I go back home. If I still have time, I'd visit Sephora at B1 Sogo and visit the local furniture shop right besides it. ”

“Even though Immigrant is not as good as it used to be before its renovation, it is still one of Jakarta's top party places. It has a small dance floor usually full of expats and sexy local girls. Prices are slightly above Dragonfly for individual drinks, but they give you a drink with the entrance fee. Music is hip hop, EDM, Top 40, Rn'B depending on the night. Great for pick-up. It is located inside the Mall Plaza Indonesia.”

The sparkling lights of the surrounding skyscrapers make evening dining @ Altitude extremely ambient. PT. INTERCONTINENTAL CULINARY and PT.

“Like an ‘abandoned old factory’ or an ‘under-construction cellar’, this outlet reflects the vibrant New York eateries, with the ambience of the Big Apple after dark. The partial riveted metal ceiling, the raw cavernous red brick wall and the inspiring girder work represent an urban industrial concept, while the caricatures of frequent patrons reposing in the far corners of the restaurant stamp the highly individualistic touch that all NYC cateries are famous for.”
