The Writers Bar

The Writers Bar


at Raffles Jakarta

Raffles Jakarta is a stunning venue that reveres art, especially that of the late Hendra Gunawan. Throughout the hotel, this appreciation and love of art is evident through the décor, design and architecture, including in the vibrant oasis that is The Writers Bar. Guests are met by vivid colours, playful designs, arty wall panels, crystal chandeliers that resemble water flowing through the ceiling, comfortable seating in all kinds of shapes and designs and a white grand piano. An outdoor terrace provides plenty of comfort for those escaping the air-conditioning. The Writers Bar is as welcoming to the on-trend fashionista as it is to corporate executives and everyone in between. The renowned Raffles service is clearly evident and the staff unobtrusively watch to ensure that you are never long without a drink. 

The drinks menu is extensive, the bar stocked with premium spirits and the bartenders are naturally very passionate and skilled. They revel in making bespoke cocktails and the thrill of interpreting your words into a memorable libation that resonates perfectly with your mood. A noteworthy feature of The Writers Bar is the roaming bartenders who use great flair to re-create the legendary cocktails of the 1920s right at your table. Live jazz music, curated drinks, personal attention, great company and a venue that immerses you in the Golden Era with timeless elegance makes any visit to The Writers Bar memorable.
