About The Writer's Bar
A revered institution at Raffles Singapore, The Writers Bar is reinterpreted in Jakarta as an oasis of art, Indonesian history, literature and artefacts in this modern metropolis. Away from the bustle of the city, the bar is a haven to enjoy a mid-afternoon repast or your favourite drink.
Enjoy your mid-afternoon repast with a treasure trove of pastries and savories, best enjoyed with our bespoke tea and coffee blends.
In the evenings, live music and relaxed conversations set the tone for elegant tapas and cocktails. Ask about the Jakarta Sling.
I had an enjoyable time at the Writer's Bar Afternoon tea service. Overall it was really good but the service is a bit spotty at times. I emailed them but never received a confirmation but then they contacted me directly via Whatsapp with an offer to prepare the food earlier so that by the time I arrived, it would be ready. I think that was really nice and they did prepare it beforehand and also apologized for the lack of confirmation about the booking. During the tea service, the initial service was great and they were super accommodating but there were times when there was no one around to ask for tea refills or the bill. And it can get rather hot by the window but the portable aircon did the job for us. The food was really nice, I loved their scones which was the perfect crumbliness (if there is such a word) and the savoury finger food was great as well. Overall I would return again, perhaps for the simple reason of their scones :)
Service staff were friendly and helpful
Very personal approach, excellent ambiance, live music and lovely spot in Jakarta.
Dear Jolanta, Thank you so much for your visit and your review! As always, we love to have you here. As much as we love serving your Americano with milk, we've got the perfect cocktail ready for you, so come visit when the sun comes down. See you soon, Nicolas
New experience new vibe!
Querido Javier, Great having you here to try our table side service and our Michelada. Seems like even classic Jazz can't keep South Americans from going back to their roots. Come by soon for a special feature on our grand piano and maybe a little dance as well. Un abrazo, Nicolas
