While in Jakarta, I would recommend visiting a really cool roof top lounge called Cloud Lounge. It’s perched high above the chaotic Jakarta streets on the 49th floor of the Plaza Office Tower.
Unless you know what you’re looking for, the average visitor won’t find this place (easily). I would strongly recommend taking some time to visit – it’s worth it. The food is great (mostly small plates), scenery is amazing and ambiance reminds me of an upscale New York City lounge without the overpriced douchbaggergy.
The night starts off with loungy/chill house music and progressively works into one hell of a party, filled with awesome house music.
Language barriers have always been one of the biggest hurdles to enjoying trip abroad. The official language of Indonesia is Bahasa, however most (almost all) spoke English fluently and made visiting this area quite pleasant.
