Awan Lounge

Top choice bar in Jalan Jaksa Area

Set on the top floor of Kosenda Hotel, this lovely rooftop garden bar manages to be both understated and dramatic. There's a vertical garden, ample tree cover, plenty of private nooks flickering with candlelight and a vertigo-inducing glass skylight that plummets nine floors down.

It has a tasty bar menu, electronica thumps at a perfect volume and the crowd is mixed local and expat. Weekends can get overly crowded.
